    I've now had and used my Samsung Moment for a full month now, and I have to say this is the best phone I have ever used.

    I carry multiple smartphones on me, usually a Blackberry of some sort, Palm Treos / Centros, iPhone, and now my Samsung Moment. While all the smartphones are really good, the Samsung Moment has been really great. :D

    Despite all the complaints you read here, I have only had a couple of minor annoyances:

    1. The Google Calendar widget doesn't default to the current day when you click on it. I have accidentally entered appointments for "today" when I realize a bit later that it was on another day that I had scrolled to previously. I hope there will be a setting to always display the current day in the future.

    2. I use Astrid to sync my to do list with Remember The Milk. Anytime I add a new task if I'm using the physical keyboard, and slide it shut and go to the portrait mode for the virtual keyboard, somehow my text is wiped clean and I have to start from scratch again.

    The battery life is excellent. Based on my moderate use, I easily get 2-3 days out of my phone, which is as good as my Palm Centro or my Blackberries.

    So glad I have this phone, can't wait for future updates though to play with. :)

    Haven't gotten mine yet- should be here early next week.

    I was debating whether or not to get a HTC Touch Pro 2 or a Driod when I started reading about the Moment.

    Decided on the Moment because of the price on Amazaon- have 2 Moments coming for less than the price of 1 of the others I was considering.

    Here's hoping we get an upgrade to Andriod 2.0 soon.

    Even with a few bumps along the way, this is easily the best smartphone/PDA I've owned. It's saying a lot when my biggest issue is the annoying searching for service sound.

    Ive had mine for... 11 days now. Still loving it, was considering switching to a Pre, and thought for a night and decided this is it. I feel like I'm going to love this thing... (first phone that can make text messages reliably and do more than just makes phone calls. I was using a Nextel i850 before this. =X)

    Great phone, even with the quirks.

    However, I think I need to get mine fixed already. Im guessing it happened over Thanksgiving week, which leaves me wondering what happened to it. I know for a fact the speaker on the phone was working then because I was testing out some of the ringtones on someone that couldnt hear high pitched noise. It was kind of interesting to know someone couldnt hear an annoyingly loud beeping sound coming from your phone, but I chalked that up to being similar to the high pitched ringtones that most adults can hear.

    Anyways, back on track. While driving back from NJ, I didnt have my headset, so I was answering the phone in the usual manner. A friend of mines daughter was in the hospital and up all night, so I got periodic updates throughout the night. Every now and again my face would put the call on speaker, but I didnt think much of it at the time. Looking back, I now realize that I wasnt hearing any of the conversation when this happened.

    Fast forward to present day. The other day is when I realized that my speaker was no longer working. Well not unless I sqeeze the phone. Doesnt matter where, or which way a squeeze it, I just have to squeeze it be able to hear anything out of the speaker. So as of right now, I can only hear my phone through my headset, or if its vibrating when it rings. No audible alerts. I suppose its a good thing I have a stereo BT headset, but also part of the reason I didnt realize it was busted sooner.

    And before you ask. Ive dropped my phone. Twice actually, but the speaker was still working after that. Perhaps it played a part in what appears to be a loose connection though.

    I've had mine for a month as well and love it! I think the battery on this thing is awesome. If I'm on the internet for an hour or 2 a day, I charge it every day. But with moderate use, I easily get 2 days out of charge. Best phone I've ever owned, by far.

    Mine arrived yesterday. Last night was spent getting my US Cellular number ported over and just the basics set up. Travelling for work tonight and spent a couple of hours customizing and playing around with this thing in the hotel room tonight. First hour was kind of frustrating, but now I'm loving this phone. Beats the heck out of the blackberry curve I have to carry for work [curve is great for email, but sucks for everything else including for use as a phone].
