You know that HP logo on the Pre3's back cover? The silver rectangle in the loop of the capital P is partial to falling off. Just in case you want to pre-emptively pry it out and glue it more solidly. My wife lost hers a few few weeks after we got her Euro Pre3 and my AT&T just shed its own a few days ago.

It looks kind of sad. I must mention that one thing I like about the Pres which is rarely mentioned is how the finish stands up to wear and tear. There's no paint to wear away and chip off; my mother-in-law has the original Droid and it's in SAD condition.

The OP didn't even vote in his own poll...

At least I voted - option 3.

Still have mine, I was surprised how thin the PALM letters were on my Touchstone, when I did elective surgery on it this past weekend. (foil-thin)

So it would fit properly. make your classic touchstone hold your pre 3 better

took a half-round ******* file to it... <---- I bet that gets censored, even though that is the ACTUAL name printed on the package.

oh I was right, calling something by it's proper name, as sold in a hardware store....gets censored. Here's a wiki on it too.

My Pre3's silver rectangle looks very good and I'm using it as my main phone since October 2011.

I voted yes, but only because I've got tape over the logo after the little rectangle DID fall off twice.

BTW, I've used mine since October.

Thanks for the heads up. My logo is still intact, but I've only had my Pre3 since last Friday.

When mine disappeared it was outta nowhere, and no idea what happened. I need to take the rest of the HP logo off, fill it all in to smooth and slap a sticker over it

Mine's still in place after 10 months of daily use including being in my pocket most of the day.

I was sitting at the dealership and my "rectangle" was trying to escape. Put it back in its place and it hasn't budged since *Fingers crossed*

I was in the same situation. Didn't work. Or maybe I should say it did work with the help of some tape! Good luck.

I think both of ours fell of after thermal events...bad Touchstone placement (ding ding ding ding) or charging in the car mounted under the sun in the dash. Whatever they used to adhere must be temperatuer sensitive.

@RumoredNow: thanks! I voted now. :-)

Thanks for the response to my frivolous poll. It was actually just a time-wasting exercise to keep my mind off impulse-buying a Google Opal 7. D-oh. I mean Nexus. Damn you, Apotheker.

The rectangle fell off months ago. The remaining portion had some of the "chrome" worn off so you could see the yellowish plastic underneath, probably from continual sliding around (and off) the touchstone.

About two months ago the entire think fell off. Looks much better. I should have done that long ago. Highly recommended.
