    My first impression was that it was plain but not nearly as ugly as it looks in pictures.

    Ever used a Windows Mobile phone? Boot times were similarly long. Now the old PalmOS phones would boot in 15 seconds or something. Great stuff.

    KB doesn't bother me, either.

    Easiest way is likely to turn off the phone radio in Settings. Second easiest would be to munge the APN name in Settings. Either will force the phone to use WIFI as the mobile data connection will be unavailable. There's an app called WeSync (I think) that will cause data to sync only over wifi. APNdroid may or may not munge the APN for you. Tasker can turn off 3G when connected to wifi.
