Was made ware of this issue today in posts on other EVO 4G forums and was wondering if any XDA users noticed the problem. Searched to see if this was already posted here, but didn't come up with any threads.

Photo of an example found here; http://i50.tinypic.com/2hrhcie.jpg

lol @clockcycle, you're making the rounds aren't you?

after seeing your thread at sprintusers I stopped by a Sprint store near my house and showed them. They said they would definitely replace it... if they had any in stock...

I waited 30 days to get a replacement swap out for screen seperation. Now its out of that 30 days and RS says they can't do it now.


BS.

Nope. I treat my phones probably better than just about anything. I've never dropped it or hit it on anything. That's evident by the complete absence of any scuffs or scratches anywhere else on the phone.

Also I didn't go in all pissed off or bothered, I just told him I found a defect and asked him his opinion about it

Got the same frikken issue. I had just made the decision to keep the phone today too. I can get a replacement but i am worried whether they'll fix the hole for rooting on the new unit.

Never dropped it. I do believe it could be from holding the power button combo when tryin to boot into recovery early in this EVO's life.
