    Mine?
    No sms sound per contact.
    No question mark on the slide up qwerty keyboard
    No vibration customization
    :blackberry:

    When's the software upgrade? :)

    Yup, right next to the L key. Don't even have to hit the ALT button to access it either.

    by no ? on the slide up qwerty, which one are you referring to? physical keyboard has it as a default key (no alt) next to the enter key, and the virtual keyboards have it when you press the (123) button to get to symbols.

    if you download handcent SMS you'll get the ability to customize some vibrations for SMS notifications. but yes, there is not a lot of customization for individual contacts for anything other than a phonecall. but there are most likely few phones that provide that amount of granularity.

    my only gripe is the lack of Cisco VPN support when requiring group name and password, and everything else that's a problem i can see fixes for so i'm not too worried about them (camera, echo, static, etc.)

    Let's see...

    Power button is too small for my fat fingers
    Keyboard is tough to type on, although I am getting faster at it.
    Battery cover could have a more secure latch.
    SD card in a better location.

    Download missed call and all of these gripes will be gone. You can set any notification/ringtone for anyone. :D

    I noticed that mine seems to slide open slightly in my pocket sometimes. Not enough to turn it on, but I'd rather keep it locked in place.

    1. Ridiculously poor implementation of copy / paste
    2. Battery hatch falls off frequently
    3. Inconsistent implementation of zoom feature - doesn't always work
    4. Inconsistent implementation of lock screen / sleep
    5. Lousy keyboard

    my only real gripe is as someone already mentioned is the it sliding partially open in my pocket, if this is a common thing please let me know otherwise I may trade it in for a droid with a tighter slide mechanism, just seems way to easy now.

    the battery door was a easy fix for me I bent the door slightly in the center notice the "lip" that locks into place) it made it a tighter fit and the battery door doesnt come off easily anymore.
