    Apparently, given enough time, it comes off on its own.

    This is true, I have one. The finish is more like a matte lumia. If you ever have a chance to see the colors side by side you will feel the difference. I took a trip to the MS store the other day and limelight was the only model that felt like this. All models I've handled were revision 002.

    Whats that supposed to mean? 6 weeks for me and I dropped my phone once, it's been in rain and snow, with and without a case, in the bathroom while I take a shower everyday so the moisture can mess with it, and I take my phone out of pockets at work every 5-10 minutes while im checking emails and text. that's a lot of in and out of pockets. Wear and tear is different for everybody, I don't even think my dad took his phone out of pocket in rain after two years, yet I switched songs in the rain a few times so far.
