    Considering this happens to some people and not to many others, and you didn't drop it... I lean towards a defective batch(es). These are all mass produced so if the coating wasn't properly mixed or applied properly then all those phones in that batch would have that issue. For me, if their is just the tiniest scratch or imperfection than that is all I would notice.

    I left my phone on my guitar case to charge, yes stupid, and pulled the guitar and my phone went literally flying through the room. No scratch or anything. Lucky for sure. But I must admit when I first took it out of it's box, from my carrier, I noticed a very slight unevenness between the top bezel and the top of the phone. Plus the random screen marks covered in many threads here on cb

    Yeah, this was definitely discussed in a thread that begun on April 1st. I too experienced this issue but on the top portion of my phone and even posted pics. Never dropped. Been in a case since day 1. Ah well. I guess something would have happened to it eventually. Can't keep this baby perfect forever. Lol
    So "chipping" can happen on the Z10 edges?-img-20130116-00784-1-_edit.jpg

    It's like the new car syndrome. Once you get that first dent, you will get over it shortly and move on without worrying about any little imperfection.

    I got my z10 for free from work so that helps me not care as much lol.

    That is huge compared to mine. And since the others even dropped theirs and not a single scratch, I would assume my unit came from those not-properly-coated batches.

    Hey April, first off ignore any idiotic responses! As I posted in a previous thread of someones post about the same mysterious chipping, my original Z10 had chipping start on top left corner near the screen from day one. Three days old and never left my mostly carpeted apt. it seemed to worsen a bit. So it can be a defect. I took mine back for a replacement. Others have mentioned it and there must be be a slight issue with some Z10's paint / coating. This one I have now fell onto the tile *ouch, then a closed bottle of wine tipped over right on top of it lol. No scratches yet. I do have two cases now though!

    Yes. Mine had chipping on the top right. Seems like the white coating is flaking off.

    Noticed it almost immediately. In my case likely from when it fell off my couch to my hardwood floor.

    Oddly enough, the phone got launched across a bar as I was taking a pic and that funny enough didn't damage the phone at all.

    Be thankful at least it doesn't look my brothers iphone. Not very drop resistant...ouch. As was mentioned someone else had chipping problem unless someone else dropped it when you were out of the room and forgot to tell you.

    I guess the edges are the weakest points for this issue. I can't be bothered to give it back. I think I've already convinced myself that my Z10 now has character . I just hope it doesn't spread throughout the rest of the edges coz that would make me really sad.

    I don't use case either, and did drop my phone badly on road. My earphones got stuck in the door and yanked the phone outta my hand. Got a bad chip at the bottom left corner. I, though, am a follower of aforementioned character philosophy..)...
    One thing I have noticed that I have not dropped it even once, other than having it yanked outta my hand, because of that grippy material for black one....

    If you were so concerned about maintaining the condition of your Z10 you should have purchased a skin or case. I put my new Z10 in a skin and screen protector the DAY I received it! I'm just anal retentive like that when I first got my hands on the new Z10. It is so sleek and functional.....my IPhone buddies wont' admit it, but they are lusting after my phone....

    I have added a 64gb card, the battery can be replace, T-Mobile unlocked the phone for me, I have an unlimited plan WAY cheaper than my Sprint and Att buds, AND the phone is faster and a lot more versatile than the IPhone!

    The screen protector and case, increases the re-sale value when and if I want to upgrade to another Blackberry...

    Check out the DBrand line of skins. The will cover the messy looking scratches on your Z10 and give it an even hotter look!

    I would also like phantom skinz but I don't think it's available here in the UK. Unless of course I'm misinformed.
