I'm also going to buy the verizon model and since im not on verizon i'll intresting in how it could be removed.
but i know that when i had xtremeguard back protector (a transparent sticker) everytime i removed it, a part of the beats and htc logo was also removed.
So, maybe if you will put duck tape on it, remove it and repeat the process it will eventually come out.
I know it will probably not going to work, but this is the best solution i could think of right now

Its laser etched into the frame. I found thses sample 3m vinyl wraps in amazon that I'm going to try. Hopefully it will add a little texture for a better grip at the same time.

3in x 5in (SAMPLE SIZE) 3M Brushed Aluminum BR120 Scotchprint Car Wrap Vinyl Film 1080 Series by 3M http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00DJF3PXM/..._9GBqtb141P4J3

Sand it with light grit sandpaper. You are going to have to sand the whole thing to make it look good, but if you take your time you should get a nice brushed but shiny look.

But that would remove the little coat as well, i think or not ?
