Just picked up my replacement at Radio Shack this evening and all I can say is version 2 and 3 are like having two different handsets. Version 3 has a different rear frame, a totally different battery door and a totally different battery. The list goes on. The vibration is MUCH MUCH better very strong the screen is brighter and whiter looking (more vibrant) The digitizer in now sub phone frame ALL AROUND, the battery door has more attachment points to it so it fits much better but is harder to take off now. The whole back of the phone is also a different color its a rubberized flat black now. More to come. PS screen rotation is almost instantaneous now no lag at all.
