Just a clarification on the reception/battery issues. I didn't want this thread getting derailed on those topics. That's one that people can get passionate about, and besides we already have threads that discuss those topics.
This thread is intended for issues that many people have experienced and that there is a possibility that they can be resolved. I'm cross referencing some of the issues brought up here, along with ones from XDA and other sources. If it's a real issue, is repeatable, then I'll post it up in the OP.
