Good luck!! I wish I didn't buy my from Ebay b/c I can't return mine.... the seller had a 7 day policy.
I have to agree with your points 100%. Those are the exact things that are happening to me. I only entering my 3rd week (picked up on 4/7) with the phone now. It has been a nightmare indeed with the reboots and battery pulls, especially since I have a hard case which is nearly impossible to open with your bare hands.
I'm really hoping ZTE/Boost will do something soon. We just don't have enough people working on this now, otherwise we would have had a nice ROM already like I see for so many other phones.
