    Here go my top 10 problems with DROID.
    1) EMAIL no empty the trash? I have over 1000 emails in the trash and I cant empty them.
    2) EMAIL You can EASILY open an email trying to check it.
    3) EMAIL No way to create filters to separate emails and create JUNK filters.
    4) EMAIL You can easily open an email trying to scroll. Seems like we need a safe area on the left or right so we can scroll without opening the email.
    5) Text Messaging. You cant copy a sent message or a portion of it? This doesn't seem possible and is very irritating. I cant forward a message either.
    6) Text Messaging something read a text message for me? Like a text to voice reader? This can help with all the driving rules.
    7) Text Messaging An automatic reply that can be turned off or on to inform users you are on the road.
    8) Video Player. I like to play movies but have often noticed audio drift on several
    videos. SO the video player needs a way to delay or advance audio to match the video like VLC has.

    9) Video Player ZOOM I need custom zoom sizes so I can play video and resize them to FIT the video window irrespective of the aspect ratio. The screen it too small to care.
    I want to digitize my video at 320x480 and zoom it up why not so I can get more video on my phone.

    10) WEB Browser Last complaint for today.. FLASH WHERE THE $^$%#& is the FLASH support that was promised by Adobe?

    11) WEB Browser Shouldn't you be able to copy text from a web page to use in a search?

    WHY cant I view pages without being classified into special class?
    Like ABC news. I cant read user comments because my phone reads the news articles only. You cant reply nor can you read news comments. Bummer :( The phone is reading reformatted pages.

    I love the phone but it really lags from where I expected it to be at this point. With so many developers maybe its hard to find the good stuff?

    1. Can't say cause I use Touchdown and it does have a deleted items folder that can be emptied.

    2.?

    3. You can with Touchdown. Not sure about the stock email client sorry.

    4. I agree, there should be a dedicated scroll section in every program as it's easy to activate certain items.

    5.If I long press the text message, I get the option to copy or forward it. Try it.
    (I am running a custom rom but the messaging app as far as I know was untouched)

    6.?

    7. As far as I can tell the stock messaging app doesn't have this feature. However you might want to try Hancent. It's a replacement messaging app with more features and seems to be the one everyone recommends. I haven't used it yet.

    8.I've read of complaints of audio drift but I haven't experienced it myself. I guess I haven't recorded enough video yet.

    9.Can't help here, sorry. This isn't something many will want though. Most people want their video in the highest quality possible. And you have to admit the video quality is very decent for a cell phone.

    10. Patience :). But yeah everyone's waiting on Flash. From a recent video posted, it looks like it'll be here soon.

    11. Yes, simply slide out your keyboard, hold the shift key down(key with arrow pointing up)and drag your finger across the text to be copied. You can also choose menu>more>select text which is the longer way.


    To view and reply to comments on abcnews.com you need to go to the regular site. Just scroll to the very bottom and choose 'regular site'. This will bring up the desktop version and allow you to use the site like you would on a desktop. This is normal with most smartphones as they generally default to the mobile site first. You might also want to try xscope or Dolphin browsers, both of which are faster and have more features than the default browser.

    As I try to watch an xfiles episode audio drift makes the video unwatchable. It worked fine until I had to pause and go back. Going forward or backward seems to cause audio mess up with no way to correct. Text messaging when you forward or create new the to box is hooked up to your contacts.

    Tv output would have been real smart. The fact is this phone could do small presentations for business travelers as well as entertain. With a blu tooth keyboard no laptop required. Big market.

    Additional item of disappointment is font size of text messages and emails. Can you adjjust them yet? The time is so small on the font size of the text that you can barely read it if you needed to.

    So.... tell us how you really feel Bob. LOL! Your thread cracks me up for some reason. But some of your gripes are shared by many. The text size being one of them. If you rooted your phone you can try the app 'font size' from the market.
