So I'm going to change my housing to a brand new white one, hopefully it won't crack again
It has already been shown that even white housing cracks as some have posted their white arc s cracked.

I don't think so. It may only seem that way because black is far more common than silver and white combined.

It doesn't really look any different to be honest and he never posted any comparison photos of before and after of the housing material so it's most likely a guess on his part than a fair comparison. I have another arc and I will check the appearance of the material when one comes back from repair.

That article doesn't say anything about the replacement having a new material...

Got mine fixed. I sent it on the 5th, got it back today on the 12th so exactly one week. They reflashed my firmware back to stock so I have to set everything up again.

Ive had mine just under 13 months now. Does anyone know if they honour the warranty outside of the 12 month period?

Mine is currently in repair in the UK, i was worried i had gone over the 12 month warranty period by a week, but when i phoned the chap told me that the phones have a 2 year warranty and not too worry. Its due back from repair today according to the service centre.

My Arc is rooted and bootloader unlocked, can I still use my warranty to fix my phone's crack?

Mine was sent back rooted and bootloader unlocked and apparently it is fixed and coming home today so i guess it doesn't matter, but cant be sure. I imagine the service centre's aren't too worried as they are there to change the housing which they will get paid for.

That's interesting. By the way, isn't it bootloader unlocking was legalized by Sony? Perhaps the reason why they accept yours?

It's a "hardware" issue, which has nothing to do with software so it doesn't matter if the phone is unlocked, rooted,even bricked.

Send from beneath my cloak of magic
Galaxy S3~4.1.2 Stock root...4.3 or not 4.3??That's the question
Kindle Fire HDX 7~Awaiting Play store and some decent tweaks/roms
Xperia X10i ~
X10i Mini ~ MiniCM 2.3.7 Unlocked BL nAa Kernel
Xperia U ~ICS Root, Unlocked BL, Things to come?
Iphone 4 ~ rooted/CM7 (hate that thing!! )
