    So far so good with the phone...LOVE the speed and the overwhelming amount of things one can do on the Android environment...I actually don't know where to start haha.

    Anyways the three things that have been bugging in the last few days I've been using this device.

    First and foremost is the email reader. I've got a gmail account which I created a few days before getting the phone so I could transfer the contacts and calendar from my old Storm. I also have 3 other emails addresses which I use on a day to day basis...2 Live accounts and 1 Comcast.

    1. Now on the two BB's I had in the past it gave me the option to either delete on handheld or to delete on both handheld and in mailbox. I set up the accounts on the X and it receives the emails but when I delete it doesn't delete it from the mailbox nor is there an option in the settings part on the phone. Also when I read messages it doesn't show up as read in the mailbox. Is there an option some where on the phone that I'm missing. A coworker of mine has the Incredible and his email reader has that option and does the read/delete function I'm looking for. Also a friend with a regular Droid says when he deletes from the phone its deleted in the mailbox.


    2. The next thing that bugs me is gmail. Why does it thread email messages? How does one go about turning that threading option off? If I can get this to turn off I'll migrate my saved emails and folders from my Live accounts and shut those down completely.

    2.a. Talking about migrating emails...has anyone used the tool within gmail to migrate saved emails and folders from hotmail/live/yahoo accounts into gmail? How did it work for you?


    3. Does the facebook app lack notifications? I know the X has the social networking app which will combine twitter and facebook (and actually downloads more contact info to my contacts which I think is cool) but it lacks on local app and redirects you to the site when you want to view more. So I download the facebook app from the market and its no better on the notifications (but gives me a local app like my old BB's did).

    Thanks in advance for any help possible.

    I don't think I've had a Facebook notification work for me since I've been using Android (Nov of last year when the Droid launched).

    Instead, I just have them send me an email notification to my Gmail account. The push is actually very quick. At the very most, you get the notification a couple of minutes after the event.

    1) Buzzing sound in the ear piece for calls
    2) Lag / Unresponsive touchscreen

    Sorry but if mine was buzzing in the earpiece I would instantly return it. I can guarantee the majority of the complaints = less than 3% of total phones sold. If I was in that 3% i'd just keep returning until I got one that functioned the way it should. Mine has been working very well, with only minor glitches; I don't know of any computer devices to be free of minor glitches. The ear buzz deal would be grounds for an instant exchange IMO, I was on the golf course this weekend driving in the cart and had to take a call..normally I have to duck down because the wind will make being able to hear a call impossible..I didn't even have to slow down with this phone. Amazing.
