    My delivery date showed up yesterday and this morning it shows that it's in my city (which means it's at the ups center like 3 miles from my house). I just called UPS and I still have to wait till the 21st! WTF! That's inhumane! Water-board me why don't you!

    so cool, I have 2 in hand.

    First impressions are that this is solidly build and the OS is very responsive.

    I got it!!! I'm posting with it right now!

    My firtst impressions... It's great so far! Great build guality, feels good in your hands... I've never owned or had a lot of use on a touch screen before, but its definitely veery responsive and easy to use. I've only been on it foor about 15 min so I haven't delved deep into what it has to offer yet, but I like it.

    As for cons... yes, no phone is perfect. So far, the charger gets in the way when using the keyboard. It's quite annoying. Also I have nooticed it's hard to place the curser if you want to edit text. I noticed this trying to make this post. Last thing I've noticed is that there are no is no dedicated key for tab. Ill have to look if there is a hot key for it in the instruction...

    Those are my initial impressions, but I'm getting anxious to play with it more that that's all I'm gunna say for now.

    use the trackball to easily move the cursor around when you need to edit text, works soo much better for me than the iphone.

    My G1 is amazing--and not just because of the internals, but also because it defied all odds to get into my loving arms. This morning, UPS tracking showed it was sitting in Dallas (5hrs from where I live), and I called UPS customer service and they told me it would get here tomorrow. Then, only by the grace of God, the UPS driver shows up with my G1!

    thats what it attempted to do was uuse tthe trackball but it just wasnt working for me... it kept trying to go out of tthe text box. i think i just need to be a little slower with it, i think its more sensitive than the one on my bb pearl

    Mine was delivered today to the wrong address. I had called tmobile right after I ordered the phone last month and told them to ship it to a different address and they told me sorry the order is in we can't change it, call UPS when you see tracking information. I called UPS and they told me Tmobile had to change it. So long story short, it got delivered today to my old address and since nobody lives there went back to the shipping outlet. They said I can come pick it up tomorrow morning. Bastards! ( Lesson learned: make sure you have the correct billing address listed with Tmobile before you order anything)

    Picked mine up at UPS a couple hours ago. Then had dinner @ Ruby Tuesdays. This phone couldn't come at a better time. my Wing has been being buggy all day long. It's currently charging.First impressions- light and much smaller than it appears in ads. Sleek. Texture is soft without being too rubbery. Case is cheap but will be just fine until I get some armor for it. I've ordered the zagg invisible shield for my PSP, and if I like it, I'll get it for G1.Headset is sleek and simple, will do just fine. Much better looking than the boxy headset that came with the Wing.
