I'm really not crazy about the "touch" buttons

    Way too sensitive, constantly triggering them. I'd like to see an app that puts in like a 2ms (or adjustable) delay before they respond. With "hard" buttons you actually have to press them (like my MyTouch 3G), with these if you so much as fart 6" from them they trigger.

    So far that's my only complaint.

    You know, I actually liked and prederred the touch buttons, but now that I have them on my Ego, I think I agree with you. I'm constantly hitting them by mistake. But then again, it would be too hard to hit them while using the phone one handed, you'd lose grip of the phone.

    I actually agree here too. I find that the meaty part of my thumb hits the back or search buttons when i'm navigating around on the screen. Chalk it up to learning curve, i'm sure i'll grow out of it.

    Mine dim. I have to restart the phone to get them to relight. Anybody else? Is there a setting I'm missing?

    Remember guys/gals... everything takes getting used to. Within a few days you'll not notice any longer. Just think if we started using cell phones back in 1985 and they had these type of touch sensitive buttons and then this year they released a phone with tactile buttons, everyone would be voicing their discontent with how hard it is to press one, why can't they be touch sensitive, any way to adjust them.. etc..

    It's all what you become used to.

    I think any case eliminate the accidental touches as I had no problems with the buttons but if this phone was any bigger I wouldn't be able to reach the HOME button. I do agree some type of trackpad may of been useful for those small links.

    They activate via the light sensor so if there is enough ambient light there is no need for them to stay lit.

    I agree, they are my only complaint...a very small delay before registering would be a good idea.

    that's what i thought, but i was in a pitch black car and couldn't see them at all. i checked my settings and it's at "automatic." after an unlock, they're on for a bit, then go off. this phone sucks! j/k

    If I cover the light sensor, they seem to come on and stay. If I uncover it, they go off. IDK if this is normal, but that is how mine work.

    I love the touch keys, but yes, there's been a few times I've typed out an email and/or text and I've reached for a trackball to correct a spelling mistake. The arrows on the keyboard help, but still take some getting used to.

    Not complaining at all, love this phone and all I can do with it. Just a slight adjustment to my (used to be) normal usage.

    No doubt more sensitive than with the Iphone. Probably just a learning curve. I disabled the touch vibration feature as that was driving me nuts.

    This is what I LOVE about this phone. I wanted buttons to be sensitive.

    It's one of the best features.
