I really enjoy this phone. Former iPhone owner to Blackberry, and now to this phone. It is leaps and bounds above the prevoius mentioned phones. The bloatware really doesn't bother me, and I removed the icons from the swipe screens. I turned Swype on and my messaging has gotten so much faster. Over all, I'm very happy with this phone. Not to metion it's gorgeous. I like the stock launcher, but I really wish I could put the GMail app in it, as opposed to the slow app that is there right now. I just turned it off from ever checking email and am using the push gmail app. What launcher are you guys using? I can't seem to find one that is allows me to customize it, but is as nice looking as OEM. I really liked how on the iPhone & Blackberry you could pick what you want in that bar. Is that possible? Am I just missing something? Also, I can NOT get this thing to mount to my Mac. Even with the thread that was posted last night (I can't find it now for a link). That is annoying me, but over all, I'm in love and completely sold.
