Just wanted to know if anyone else has had this response, and if they went ahead with it what sort of fee they were charged?
I think it's time to move on mate...
Not that that is a reason to separate with the phone, but if that issue makes the phone unusable for you, i don't think it's worth repairing, since you can still sell it, as it is not a major fault and get something like the HTC ONE IF you liked the HOX.
You can even get S-OFF on it...
I have a HOX too and am thinking of switching to the ONE.
That is the standard response for bootloader unlocked devices so you are not alone...
If you don't have the money to upgrade and like your HOX then go ahead and get it fixed.
If it's really a hardware problem there is nothing you can do yourself.
You could try to install a custom rom and see whether it's really a hardware of a software problem...
