So ive lost the C forever, and now the phone looks ugly. Poor quality by HTC IMO... anyone else experienced this?

is there any custom letters i could buy online??

My C fell off when my phone was sitting on my lap on a road trip. I guess the sun was too hot for it and the glue just turned to cupcake frosting. I ended up taking the other two letters off along with the C and it doesn't look too bad! All that gunk in the C in the OP's picture can be rubbed out so it has a clean look.

While I was cleaning the back of my phone I noticed one of the letters moving, so I went ahead and took all 3 out.

I used rubbing alcohol to get the rest of the glue out, and it's pretty clean now.
I actually prefer the feel of the back without the letters. It was weird at first, but I think it feels better.

I'd post a pic, but I don't have another camera.

You know this gives me an idea...

With the filler removed from those placeholders there's enough countersink to fill with epoxy and then sand smooth.
Clear five minute epoxy resin could be used and you can make them any color you want by mixing in a bit of acrylic paint found in a craft store.
Get creative!

Just be sure that it's clean so the epoxy sticks well. Or it could fall out again...

I'm willing to bet that properly mixed epoxy will stay put though.
