I dropped my Titan the other day and it landed on concrete pretty hard. *weep*

The handset was fine and was protected pretty will by the body, however I managed to scratch the back plate a little and now its driving me crazy because every time I look at it I see the scratches.

Does anyone know if/where you can buy a replacement back plate?

Does anyone know if/where you can buy a replacement back plate?

a) may be buy a gel cover? Cheap and will cover the scratch and protect your phone with further throwing around in future?

b) if you are in 28 days thing, replace it?

c) could you please check your speaker and mic? Last time I dropped mine, it looked like it was a scratch but the speaker was completely messed up and when I spoke in my mic, it echoed to the other person for like zillion times! I had to replace it and luckily was in 28 days period.

actually theres alot of backplate on sale on ebay .

thats probably a good point about the titan . if you really scatch the backplate badly, there are alot of OEM replacement backplate on ebay going for about 40 bucks and will make you phone looks like new .

Call HTC support,they will issue you a new one for free, under the warranty your allowed one accessory per unit, the back cover falls in that category. That's what they did for me. I now have a new one I use when I go out and a scratched one I use at work.

Hello I have a similar question, I have the At&t version of the titan, great phone, but believe the black back cover of the global version looks much better. Is it possible to just swap it??
Thanks

HTC Titan / Eternity ~ Black Housing Cover Door Case Frame Fascia Plate ~ Mobile Phone Repair Parts Replacement by HTC.
$27.99

I don't know how compatble this is with the AT&T Titan.

Mine fell out of my pocket and hit the pavement. Aluminum is not good for things like this. HTC is sending me a replacement.

I dont understand how HTC will send a replacement when they say explicitly on their warranty that they do not cover damages to drops / accidents?!!
