Afriend invited me over his house where he had a T-Mo rep(family member) with the phone.. He answered a lot of questions that i had. im posting this to see if it helps anyone else Shipping doubts-------(he said that as far as he knows, as long as you ordered your phone before the 3rd then you should sure be receiving it on the 22nd) i asked if there was a possibility of having it earlier and he said probably not Contacts------It DOES have an option to upload all your SIM contacts into your gmail contact list. (one of my biggest worries) AIM------I was worried that it would be like the wing which is not too comfortable but it is actually really easy to use. Google/GPS/StreetView/Compass---------Did not disappoint me at all. The phone itself---------it seemed sturdy and easy to handle. the keyboard is a little bit flat but really not much to worry about(more or less like the wing) and it IS kinda annoying to type while it is charging. (also if i remember correctly the material in the back is sorda rubbery which feels safe to handle) and the touch screen is very responsive.
