    I suggest it all depends on:

    1) build quality (batch)
    2) way of usage
    3) climate etc. differentiations

    effort made ​​it only takes about 30 minutes, and all the body is covered, including keypad and trackpad.

    no increase in temperature of the device, all in normal conditions.

    Regardless of device carrier: AT&T, Verizon, Rogers, etc etc, all may have this problem.

    While the bezel is made from inox itself, it will not have the issue as it have no paint in it lols. but the 4 stripes are made of plastic

    So now the Blackberry is trully BLACK

    My 9650 did this within a few months and I live where there is low humidity, although my phone is not outdoors that much anyway and always in a case when it is outdoors. I used a black sharpie to make it all black and loved the way it looked so much that I painted it black to make it look even better. My 9930 has held the silver color much better and I have not changed it yet, but will eventually.

    I always wonder how this happens. My 9900 still looks brand new apart from the mildly worn KB. It holds up a lot better than my torch did. The keys are smooth on that phone now.

    Default Bold 9900/9930 silver paint fades away in 4 plastic stripes in keyboard.

    Where can we get OEM parts? As far as I'm concerned, better scratched and OEM than some cheap copy.

    You can only get OEM parts from another phone. Everything else will be aftermarket.

    Phil, your saying "You can't get OEM parts" right? That was point I was trying to make.

    I've had this issue also , i think its a build quality issue , but the keys work perfectly , and I dont really pay much attention to the sliver coming off

    I think its an "I need to cut my fingernails", "I need to wash my hands", and "I have sweaty palms" issue.
