    I would like to start by saying I love this phone. It does everything my centro did and more.

    OK the review:

    Battery: as everyone knowes the meter does not match the actual battery charge.
    I unpluged my phone 10 hours ago. I have used the phone for 40 min. Surfed the web on evdo for 60 min(watched 2 5 min youtube vids in this time). Down loaded one app (labryith) and played it for 30 min. I recived 5 emails and sent 4 text messages. At hour 9.5 I got the 15% warning.

    I did all this with the phone in stock formation. If the battery hold up as it did last night I have 2 more hours befor it shuts down.

    Its not the longest lasting battery, but I am pleased with the performance.

    Bus: I have found 2.

    #1 optical pad quits. If I am surfing the web and let the screen time out the pad does not work when I wake the phone up. To fix it I have task kill the browser hit the end key to turn off the screen wait about 5 min and wake the phone. The pad will then work as normal.

    #2 this has only happened once and when I tried to replicate it I couldn't. While using wifi to surf I lost cell signal and the phone went into airplain mode, but wouldn't come out. To fix I powered down the phone and then restarted, the phone found cell signal and all was fine.

    App store: what can I say. It is awsome. Even the free apps are good. I have downloaded labryinth, advanced task killer, documents to go (free), fox news widget, goo memo, and on other I can't remeber now. All function as they should.

    Ringtones: I have never been a big ringtone guy.mainly because I don't like to pay for 30 sec of a sond. The moment let's you use any song in you sd card as a rington. This is the first phone I have had that does this and I love it. Big thumbs up.



    That's my 48 hour review. I ccan say how happy I am that I picked this phone ovver the Palm Pre. If the 2 bug I mentioned were fixed I would have nothing to complain about. And if you are contemplating the moment don't let the battery haters get you down.


    P.s. I typed this entir review on the slide out key board. So for give the spelling:)

    Yup foxnews widget is working as it should. It gives headline and when you tap it it brings up a window with their top stories.

    Maybe I should have clarified what it used to do. So let me ask, does it open random programs in the background? It used to do this, my phone would blink every couple seconds, and after a few minutes there would be dozens of apps running. Got rid of Foxnews, and it stopped:eek:

    I just prefrormed the following test.

    Task killed everything and waited to see what poped back up I.e. voice app that never quits. I then used the fox widget. I then went into task killer to see what poped up. The only new process was fox. So I'm not seeing the problem you described.
