    So far so good. I was about to get the ultra just for the keyboard when I heard about this. So far no problems with the on screen keyboard as its much bigger then the prevail was. Very fast and not to heavy. Reminds me of my co workers evo. Its very snappy and I am putting things on here the prevail only dreamed of handling. Netflix was awesome on wifi and still very good on 3g. Even with all the bloatware it has lots of app space. 4 gig on-board memory. It feels good in my hand. Well maybe a bit big as I was used to the prevail.
    One thing Im trying to figure out is the ram. It had specs of 512 but the task manager has only showed me 376.61. Scratching my head on that one. Now all I need to find is some protection and I will be good to go.
    Feel free to shoot any questions my way.

    Wanted to add that the on screen keyboard has been no problem with the larger screen size.

    I believe the ram is 376.61 because its like a hard drive on the computer when you have a 300G and you install windows, its no longer 300, its more like 297 or 298. basic program/software ram usage. Could also be used for virtual memory maybe?

    That would be available RAM for use, Installed RAM is still 512MB, Just the system takes up a portion and doesn't list it as available unless you have certain root applications that can fee it and utilize it safely.

    No official word yet, we will have to wait till the first people get their hands on the phone and report back to us about details, I would guess yes though because capacitive buttons are a total pain to hit in the dark without back lighting.

    Also I would like to know about the little red light in some pics, I have been told either its a notification light or a IR proximity sensor that is only detected by a camera, well see.

    So peeps if you have this phone already message me or post up about any interesting facts about this phone that you think people should know.

    The red light is a notification light that YOU can set up in the settings to stay solid or blink depending on actions. IE sms, email, etc.
    It does have a proximity sensor that darkens the screen as it goes to your ear.
    As far as the function buttons at bottom..... They dont stay lite up but that does not seen to be an issue.
    Hope that helps some.

    Thanks chodroid for the reply. What do you mean the function buttons dont stay lit up? do you mean they go out when the screen goes off?

    No. After paying attention, they go off after phone boots on and stay off.

    Minor correction: the red dot on the pics is a charge status indicator. When charging is red and blue when charged well. pull out the charger it will blind.

    Mine is going back. Horrible customer service from boost about my 50 dollar price difference. A supervisor hung up in my face. AND over the weekend when using this beast, I dropped at least 80% of my calls and had to pull the battery twice. Pandora started on its own a few times. Very unreliable. I wish it wasnt because it was pretty snappy and handled most things well as far as processing. :(

    The light sensor controls them. In a dark room they light up, in a bright room/outside they don't. I haven't dug into the phone yet to see if there is a setting for it or not but that's how they are controlled.
