Nice to know others are like me and won't support companies abandoning Card Slots.Also I think only the enthusiasts put as much stock in the battery life as those of you talking about it here. I mean, come on. Many people are on batteries that are literally HALF what this phone has. Like me and my Dinc2 with its 1400MH battery. 1400. My phone is nearly 2 years old and I can generally get an entire day out of it still. But even when I can't I have a charger at the office and one in my car. It's rare my phones ever dead on me by days end. ANd newer phones are only more efficient.
Note I do not stream as much as I used to as I finally got my entire CD collection on my SD Card. *ahem.
