    I havent had the phone for 14 days yet and she is done.

    here is a list of stuff that is wrong with it

    1.) Wireless wont work
    2.) wont connect to the network (no calls or internet)
    3.) Faulty keyboard
    4.) battery over heats
    5.) Power cycles twice an hour
    6.) Touch screen wont respond after 10 minutes of in activity (cause me to miss calls because i have to turn the phone off then back on to get it to work)

    thats just what i got off the top of my head. Im not mad because other than this its a great phone. its also new so there are bound to be bad batches. luckily ive a new one coming to me. im only posting this incase some of these issue havent been stated yet.

    oh and in case anyone asks i baby my phone. no apps that dont come straight from the market and those only include ones like handcent and FB. i havent even used the keyboard that much (tested it a few times) since i have a broken hand and have to rely on the touchscreen.

    Sounds like you just got a faulty device. For the most part, everyone has LOVED this phone and I know they aren't experiencing your issues. I'm still debating whether or not to get one. Its getting harder and harder for me to hold back.

    Quick question. How do you know the keyboard is faulty if you have not been able to use it yet due to your broken hand?

    Dang man sounds like you need to return it for another one. I've had no probs yet, but sounds like they messed it up.

    opened to try and use it with my cast and cant get the buttons to work. turned it off and back on and it will work. but like with the touchscreen after it is idle for a while it doesnt want to work completely.

    lol. should have made that clear

    Ive loved that phone as well. in the first couple of days it was awesome but then i started noticing the slight glitches.

    im not mad at all other then i have to set it all up again but that in itself isnt huge. ive got my D2G to use as a back up so im cool.

    honestly id go for it and get one. it really is a great phone and im sure when the next update rolls in it will fix most of the other issues
