pdude, 09 Mar 2011I should extend my post to say that I sent the phone away for repair. The loner phone I got to... morePDude, that sucks! :(
I have heard of rare cases of a 'batch' of parts may be distributed to a whole area, or even a whole country... (when I got a Nokia 6700 classic - there were complaints all over this site in the Opinions section - but all complaints were from one particular place in Europe - and all had very specific problems, none of which I encountered at all with my handset) So ultimately that model didn't sell well in Europe and had quite a bad reputation, but it was really popular in Australia, I loved my handest and it lasted me over 2 years.
The only thing I could recommend to you would be to contact HTC directly (I just googled "Contact HTC" and the first result was location specific ie; Australia.. (becasue Google's clever and does location specific results..)
So if you do the same, and you're in Canada for example - Google should help you with contacting HTC specifically there..
Let HTC know your phone is currently in for repair, you've got a loan phone with the same problem, and let them know you're concerned this is an isolated issue becasue so many other people from International Web see what they say..
Have they had many reports of this?
Is there a swap-centre there where they'll swap your phone if it's still fualty after repair?
- There's no harm in having a chat with the HTC person, and at least asking them what you should do, or if they can point you in the right direction?
I reckon they're on such a winning streak right now (unlike poor old Charlie Sheen) - WINNING! - they should definitely want to help you. :)

I've have my Legend for 6 mon... moreI should extend my post to say that I sent the phone away for repair. The loner phone I got to use was a brand new HTC Legend.
Using this brand new HTC Legend, I had the exact same issue. Can't use the phone because it reboots the moment a call comes in or if I dial a number and make a call.
This brand new phone had absolutely nothing on it. No apps or add-ons and it still rebooted so much that no calls could be made.
This issue does seem to be location specific so you can get lucky and be in an area where the phone will work fine but when travelling you take the risk of running into the same issue I face.
Again both of these HTC Legends are running Android 2.1 as 2.2 in unavailable yet in my area which is another bone of contention with me because this issue might be resolved if I could get the update.

HTC Loves Me, 08 Mar 2011No Mate. You won't get a new body for your phone becasue you can't take the inner parts ou... moreyes, i agree with you. I just customized and covered the phone with a thin layer of plastic sheet and carved the openings..now it will be protected from scratches..i took it to a small shop who designs scratch guard covers to protect the screens/parts of touch gadgets. its perfect and my phone is protected from hairline scratches.:)
AnonD-1690, 04 Mar 2011me love the fact that the legend is not with everyone .. always uniqe to have it yes its unique..:)its like a small mac in my hands..smooth and powerful.

You won't get a new body for your phone becasue you can't take the inner parts out and swap them over.. lol :)
You do not want to get a 'new look', or black body either, because it's Aluminium under black paint and it sounds like you're not using a protective cover... so you would end up with a black phone with very clear silver scratches all over it after a short time.
I have the silver/Aluminium model and use a black silicone soft-case and screen protective plastic sheet.
No scratches at all after 1 year...
Good luck! :)

I love the fact that at this point in time, I still cannot find one picture of a cracked HTC Legend Screen on the internet... :)
very nice smartphone... shiny, robust and very very elegant.
And HTC has provided 2.2 froyo update too.

You need to take your handset back to your seller!
I've have my Legend for 6 months now and it's AMAZING. Not one single glitch.
My handset has not been rooted or tampered with, I'm in Australia, and have updated to 2.2 just last week. 2.2 has made the handset faster (several million lines of code have been made more 'efficient'), it supports live wallpapers now, and I can move Apps to SD card.
This is truly an amazing handset and you need to take yours back to your seller and demand a repacement.
Good luck Dude! I hope you love your new handset when it arrives. :)
