Seems like a pretty good phone so far.. it's snappy and already has 2.1. The dialer lags also but not as bad as my Eris. The physical keyboard is okay but I am more comfortable with the touch screen. I have not found any apps that will not work with the Ally yet, but I am sure there are some. No trackball on LG and that is something else I have grown accustom to. Just my two cents I thought I would share for anyone who is considering an Ally.
