Hi,

Am I the only one with the problem that the unibody shell peels??? I have the phone for 2.5 weeks, and it was always in a case.

My top-left corner has been naked for a couple months, now.
It's a problem that a lot of people are having.
There is talk of the Verizon employee version (grey with hi-viz accents) having a less rubbery coating.
Maybe HTC refreshed the phone because of this problem?

Well, there's always http://www.wpcentral.com (probably a better resource for Windows Phone stuff than XDA).
If you're looking for pictures, though, it would look very similar to yours.
Mine is just on the other corner and a little bigger.
