Default question about keyboard wear and tear

Please Login to Remove!

Hi! I just picked my an 8700G today and love it! When I got home, I noticed that the "DEL" key is scratched - the "EL" letters are sort of a smudge instead of letters. How quickly do the keyboards wear? I'm thinking of taking the 8700 back for another one with a perfect keyboard because 1) it was expensive and 2) I'm picky about dumb stuff like this. But, if the keyboard is just going to get worn in a few months anyways, it isn't worth the hassle. Thanks for any info!

I've had my 8700C since December and see no visible keyboard wear.

To add to that my 7100T I used for a good 1+ year has no visible wear as well.

Same here except with the 8700g and 7100t.

I,too have had my 8700c since December and I have no noticable wear on my keys. Only small knicks from where I've dropped the device.

I stopped by T-Mobile today and exchanged it for a new one with a perfect keyboard. It took about ten minutes. Good stuff.
