It was completely free under the standard (UK HTC) 2 year warranty. In fact HTC even paid UPS to collect the handset at their cost. The only cost to me was 3.5 days without my Sensation.

I have no warranty on the phone though, as i bought it from amazon dealer in the US and now Im back home in Bulgaria. My question is - is the dust under screen inevitable, or only small percentage of handsets get it? Because I really don't want to figure out where to send it for repairs and how much it will cost.

Please guys, I don't have access to warranty here, so its really important for me to know what is the chance of this happening.

Not true. I have had phones with both panels and both had dust. Sharp is more true colors and the Acer is over saturated. I actually prefer the Acer. Sharp looks dull to me.

Do the silicon seal and never look back.

Are there any users from India who faced this issue? What did you guys do about it? Were you asked to take it to a service center near your place? The thing is, the service center here is far far off, it's in another city :|. Thanks in advance!

I debated getting a sensation as they had them on sale on Negri, but this dust problem kept me from doing it. I know you can seal the screen with silicone, but I always thought it was stupid that you had to do such a thing for an expensive phone. I ended up not buying it. Still wondering if I should have gone for it or not.

Hello, i want to tell you my story.

After 4 months, my Sensation started to have the "dust problem under the screen" and the sound speaker distorced at higher levels problem.
So i decided to send it to HTC, my warranty was still ON.
Today after 10 days i received it back, and it has THE SAME PROBLEMS as before.
They did absolutely nothing and i'm so disappointed about HTC.
My speaker is still distorced at higher volumes, the screen still has dust inside the screen, nothing changed.
I'm really angry, i've read in this forum that most people who sent their sensation back got the screen repaired and the dust problem gone, but that's not my case.
I'm going to call them again today, i hope i can solve something.

EDIT: the only thing they did was a Software Update. But i already had the latest Update !! WTF.

I have a small spot of something right in the middle of the screen. You can't always see it but in the right light its definitely there! Very small.I'm not sure exactly what it is?
It looks like a tiny pixal. It's been there since I got the device. Thank God its not getting bigger! It's like a tiny rainbow of colors, very difficult to see but if you look hard you can see it
