    Okay the story goes like this

    recieved phone 5 days ago
    worked great for 2 days, 3rd day had issues

    Beer guide app
    happy hours app
    mixology app
    color note app
    ford rangerforum app

    Messaging app failure (force close)
    generic network failure
    Pandora would not go past the welcome screen (worked great for a few hours though)
    googlemaps took FOREVER to load however google navigation worked great
    slacker wont load
    several other small glitches

    went into tmobile and got an update to 2.3.5

    so now i am STILL having issues but some different issues too.

    new downloads:
    color note
    ford ranger forum
    adobe flash player (downloaded to fix an issue)
    advanced task killer
    look out security

    i pay for 4g 2gb data, i have MORE THAN 1.5 gb of data left and itll show that i am using 2g mobile network sometimes
    watching video from sites other than youtube will go directly to screen share (which i dont want) and thennn it doesnt even play, downloading adbobe seems to have fixed that but it loads slow and only plays once (no repeat option, and forces me to reload it if i want to rewatch it)
    messaging failure
    abnormal reset (happend once, this morning)
    not sure if this is related but...before the update, my car charger couldnt charge my phone very well but after the update it works okay (buying new charger anyway)
    some apps wont open like rockband (which i could care less about lol)
    adding words to dictionary so i can swype it (such like ****ing, wtf, my email) does not get recgonized when writing messages

    i have insurance so its not a huge deal to get the phone replaced but i wanted to try this first...

    NOTE: PHONE HAS NOT BEEN DROPPED (I SWEAR) nor has it been near any water whatsoever.

    please help i really LOVE this phone and dont have any biased feelings towards it, i just want it to work correctly

    this phone is 50/50

    either you get a great one, or a crappy one....this is what i read atleast

    i got a crappy one too, no insurance though.....so they are bein dicks when i call

    your best bet is to just get a new one and hope for the best
