    Hey everyone,

    So I got my MY4G about 3 weeks ago and am still figuring it out. Switched from a blackberry and this thing is completely different! But, for the most part, I think it's awesome.

    I was wondering if anyone else knows what's happening when you force the keyboard up in the contacts list. Without clicking the magnifying glass in the top right hand corner, I held down the center key and the option key to the left. Up pops the keyboard. Started typing and a box comes up with the letters, but doesn't really sort through the contacts to try and find the contact. Is this then some sort of command prompt? I guess I was confused as to what point of the keyboard is if it doesn't do anything...

    Also, does anyone have difficulty getting the GPS to load? Mine will say "Searching for GPS..." for at least 3-5 minutes before loading using the Navigation app.

    Third and final issue (for the moment at least) - I'm bummed to see that people are getting the phone for free! More power to those of you that were fortunate! Now I guess I'll have to renegotiate with the T-mobile people to see if they'll do a price-match. Has anyone ever had any luck with that?

    Thanks for any insight!!!!

    Sometimes unless I have a perfect view of the sky GPS never seems to get a lock. Other times I works just find with no view of the sky.

    Sorry I don't have a better answer for you, but at least you know you aren't alone.
