One thing i noticed about this device is its likeliness to get scratched..

Does anyone else have this problem as well?

RE: Echoes, crappy sound in nettalk, grooveip. There is an existence proof that it can be done right: Tmobile's callling over wifi works much better than these two apps, but uses cell minutes. So Tmo software engineers know something that nettalk's, grooveip's engineers don't.

RE: Wifi Hotspot: You can do it without rooting - SVTP's Wifi Hotspot & USB Tether Pro. It worked fine. I think I grabbed it when it was on special for about $3. Maybe about $5 regular. I wound up rooting with Titanium Pro anyway but I still use SVTP.

RE: Slowness. Yes, mine was unbearable, so I was surprised at all the positive reviews. I switched to golauncher from the Samsung default crap and it greatly improved things. But it is still rather slow for a 1Ghz machine. My LG Optimus T with 600Mhz felt a bit snappier. Maybe gingerbread is more of a hog than froyo. I used Titanium to freeze a bunch of crap on the Sammie but still surprisingly sluggish, but bearable.

I started with Talkatone on the iPad. Has some echo, but not terrible. Moved to the alpha-testing Talkatone for Android on the Exhibit II, and at this point all my 'victims' report significant echo on their end.

Tried muting the mic with my hand and the echo diminished a bit but not completely. The workaround is to use earphones. The echo goes away entirely.

That tells me two things:

a) The echo is acoustic, through the body of the phone. With a mic in such close proximity to a speaker, this is no surprise. Physical isolation in such a small unit while preserving audibility would be nearly impossible.

AND
b) that's why typical cellphone communication sounds non-duplexed. Clearly, the makers of the phone soft/firmware account for it by muting one side or the other depending on when you're talking. If you're not talking, your phone's OS is muting the mic. If you are talking, your phone's OS is muting the earpiece.

So I guess once Talkatone, GrooveIP, et al get the basic VoIP comm circuit working right, their next area of effort will be to work on the conditional muting.
I just bought this phone off ebay. The seller included a hard rubber case. Not sure the model. Anyway...my goal was to use Talkatone, GrooveIP, or OBION with google voice/chat to use VOIP with tmobile's $30 plan. Anway..when using ANY of the above clients I never heard echo, but person on the other end would hear significant echo. So I took the case off the phone, tried each of the services above, and the echo cleared up. When I hold the top of the phone (with out case) while talking, the caller hears echo again.

Interesting find!! I'll also have to try headset.
