    I just noticed the gold flaking on my camera button is coming off. The top face is completely gone and the sides are chiping away now. The rest of the phone is in excellent condition...no scratches, no drops, etc. This is very saddening :(.

    I'm having the same problem!
    I've already sent Motorola an email but no reply yet. I also tried calling them but no answer (888-331-6456) I'll try again Tuesday.

    Wouldn't it make sense to go through Verizon?

    I already tried, they can't exchange the phone because it's a cosmetic issues not a hardware/os issue.
    Verizon told me to call Motorola

    Hmm, that's unfortunate. I am still probably going to see what they say.

    Please keep us posed on your progress with Motorola. I'm having the same problem and I'd like to get this fixed.

    Same issue here. It's just gold paint on plastic, it will come off eventually (just hope not this soon). I've basically written it off at this point. I'm not going to call and try to get a new phone because of it.

    What's next, the gold button on the d-pad to start pealing too?

    Hope not :( My guess is the camera button sees more finger grease and such and that probably played into it. All the excess rubbing.

    I keep my Droid in the Verizon brand holster so it's never in my pocket, away from lint and debris. I think its cheap paint Motorola is using for these buttons!
