Feb 18th - that would be pre-order. Over in UK it didn't release until April.

On the down side, just checked my box, no 6 month warranty leaflet (Vodafone UK purchased 26th April)

Just found this

Oh cripes, is it true that all UK HTC ones get shipped to Poland for repair?! WTF? Will I ever see my One again? I sent it to HTC as I assumed it would be a high standard repair with genuine parts. Now i feel like I'll never get it back and it'll be a shoddy repair if it does.

EDIT: According to UPS HTC have had my device since Friday Morning, but the HTC tracker says awaiting device?

Has anybody got any idea of how much Regenersis will charge to replace the screen and body to make my baby look new again? Also what sort of time scales in the real world do these chaps work at? Is the workmanship up to oem standard?

In other words... "Let's see how much this costs us before we dive in worldwide and completely screw ourselves"

Or, because the US is the land of Lawsuits (no offence to anybody from the US ) HTC decide that maybe it is cheaper to replace screens for free and covers their a$$e$ rather than have people bring lawsuits against them for not fit for purpose screens. (I am in no way saying that the screen is not fit for purpose by the way lol, it's my own stupid fault.)

Well, I finally got my M8 back from Regenersis HTC repair centre and I'm very surprised.
The total cost of repair was 103.31. I was expecting at least twice that amount as the phone is good as new especially considering the difficulty of the repair.
They have replaced the LCD, the bottom speaker panel, the middle assembly and the back cover. I'm quite impressed really as HTC were quite helpful whenever I contacted them and the whole thing has been pretty painless. It took less than 3 weeks from sending to receiving. Thumbs up for HTC

The breakdown of parts:

LCD & touch- 43.06
Bezel pre assy - 5.58
deco plate upper assy - 1.17
Deco plate bottom assy - 0.89
Labour - 22
Shipping - 11.29
VAT 19.32

Not sure which one of those is the back cover, but it's been replaced!

That means that HTC charged about 50 +VAT for the actual repair. The parts themselves cost double that. No point in buying insurance at that cost.

Around $75 at the current exchange rate. There is a seller selling just the touch screen and LCD for $190 on eBay. The part I have been charged for is a complete assembly including the housing.
It seems maybe HTC are only charging cost prices for the parts. Maybe this is so as not to discourage people from buying the phone because of scary repair costs.
I honestly can't complain about the repair cost or the service. After reading some dodgy reviews I was expecting a worse experience.
