with great respect for this cool new phone and all it's enthusiastic users, i have to leave this forum. i stayed up to midnight, ordered my phone, waited for the fedex guy, set it up, played and played with it. the full answer is that it's not the right phone for me. it's an amazing phone but not my phone.
i didn't love the hard corners of the heavy rectangle in my hand, nor the full glass plate against me when using it as a phone. i could have dealt with all of it but the keyboard didn't win out. i email a lot for work and it was fingernail-city on this keyboard...
i am now the owner of a charging bb tour -
new2u and jim mariner and cereal killer: wishing you the best...i know that this will be a successful phone.
