After reading some comments on this board...I am really concerned for society. I am not being mean I am totally serious. IT'S A PHONE!!!! It's not going to do everything exactly the way you want it to. It does a hell of a lot of things and does most of them very well. If you wan't the perfect phone, buy HTC and make one for yourself. I am amazed at the way people are so quick to dismiss a new piece of technology so quickly over almost nothing. It's like the writers from Seinnfeld are posting here. The phone is not "sponge worthy" Are we as a society really this addicted to instant gratification that we can't be bothered to LEARN how a phone functions and MAYBE settle for a few meaningless flaws (heaven forbid) in an otherwise great piece of equipment? You know there are starving people in Africa that don't even HAVE 3G lol. Look, I went from a razor to a BB 4 years ago...and for the first TWO MONTHS I absolutely hated it...until I got familiar with how to use it, then I loved it. I have had my Eris for a week now and I love it more now than I ever did my BB. When I think back to my first Nokia brick in the mid 90's, I am pretty amazed at how far this technology has come. But...if you don't like it, return it. Do you really need to go on some forum to tell people how much THEIR phone sucks just because YOU don't like it? If there was just one phone that everyone loves, there would just be one phone!!! Just like there would be one kind of car, one kind of dog and one kind of ice cream. Geez people stop hate posting and go outside and live your life. IT'S JUST A PHONE!!!!
