    I for one was originally gonna be a "get it on release day" type, which I've done for many phones in the past. Almost did it with the Incredible, but held off after hearing about the Galaxy line... and almost did it again with the Fascinate, but was spooked by the lack of lag / gps fix, considering VZW waited many weeks after the other carriers already released.

    Thus my idea for this poll!

    Not to hijack the How many will return thread, but I did include that option in the poll, just to try to be more "complete"

    Option 1 here. It was good out of the box. With root, lag fix and some tweaking its now very good. It will only be better post-Froyo. I have few to none of the problems so many complain of so this one's not going back at all

    I am waiting by default -not eligible until mid Nov. Franlly, rooting worries me a bit. I like the lag fix, launcher pro, and maybe Dolphin, which all can be done without root.

    Is there something specific that keeps you on the diving board and not in then pool? Or is it just the apparent wave of complaints? If its the latter remember this the squeaky wheel gets the grease so whenever anyone has a complaint it will just stick out and be more apparent than someone like me who has zero complaints with his SF.

    Mine is great. No regrets. What specifically are you worried about? What difference will it make if Froyo gets here in October or December? Still a great phone, right out of the box running 2.1. I couldn't be much happier.
