    I noticed today that the gold coating somehow is gone from my camera button. Anyone else have this problem? I could really care less but I can't believe that this would happen so soon on a phone that cost 600 dollars retail.

    that's odd. I never heard of any problems with the gold coming off.

    if it bugs you that much, maybe verizon can help you switch it out.

    no problems here.

    I never use the button, always use the touch screen button. But I imagine they'd let you replace it if you wished as it shouldn't wear off within the amount of time it's been in use.

    Also, question, do you use a case protector? I'm just wondering if it got worn down from coming in and out of your pocket with no protector around it.

    Mine's looking good here, Luckily I got a case that covers my side buttons so I really dont have to worry about it peeling off.
