I went to my local Sprint store and they said they would exchange it for a new one but, of course, they didn't have any in stock nor did any of the other nearby stores. They're supposed to have a UPS shipment of them today and supposed to give me a call. Here's hoping they do.
I looked at the original case that came with the TP and the inside is all smooth, no seams or stitches. I was using this case before I bought that
Body Glove case and looking back on it, the chrome damage did not happen until after I started using that Body Glove case.
So my advice for everyone, if you're not using an Invisible Shield that protects the chrome and you're putting your TP in a case, make sure there's no stitching inside the case where the phone will be sliding in and out. If you do have a case that has stitching on the inside, at the very least make sure all the stitching is smooth to the touch of your finger (including the flap area, basically any area that will be coming into contact with your TP.) Again, the stitching that was sticking out on the inside of the body glove case didn't seem like a big deal when I ran my finger over it but apparently it was enough to scratch and eventually rub off the chrome as I was sliding my TP in and out of the case.
