    Just got mine a couple of hours ago. So far, I love it. I've had the original Droid, Droid 2, and most recenly the Droid X. This is my first HTC android unit so there's a tad bit of a learning curve.

    The only issue I've had to far is in Personalize, under "Sound set" if I tell it to add a new sound set, when I give it a name and click done, the application force closes. I've tried it several times and even rebooted. Anyone else seeing this?

    Other than that, the phone is great so far!

    The extended batteries are $49.99 in stores I believe, a bit pricey.

    they only charged me 30 because it was a promotional item. no matter what the price is for the extended battery it's well worth it. the phone did the usual 2 hour battery dip after 5 hours... works for me :)

    does anyone know if you can get text messages from a past phone onto a new phone or are they lost?

    Without root and Titanium they are lost. Why would you want to keep them anyway?

    Imo, the extended battery looks horrible. Like attaching a Borg Cube to a sleek Federation Starship... http://shop.htcpedia.com/images/detailed/htc-thunderbolt-extended-battery.jpg

    I'd love 2750mAh.... but no way I'd accept that much of a bulk. The back doesn't slide out as well as the Droid I so an extra battery isn't really a solution for me.

    I have turned off all the syncing. I expected just my Google account to be syncing but apparently there was a ton of other things. So hopefully that will help.

    Doesn't require root access.

    does the phone have wifi? Use that and connect to the market and download. Have to have your SD card from the new phone in it to backup to.

    If no wifi, then you could always reactivate it on the same line, do the backup, then reactivate the new phone.

    Nice. Never heard of it. Although, I delete all my messages weekly so it doesn't bother me to lose mine.
