Hey guys, im planning on grabbing a milestone on thursday when it releases in canada. but i have a couple questions
1. Hows the vibrate? my phone is on vibrate 99% of the time, and the reason i sold my storm 2 is because of the ****ty vibrating.
2. how are notifications? can you set different colors of led's for different things (ex: text, email, missed call), and are there any little indicators on the screen of unread/unseen messages (like blackberries)
3. whats the bootup time like

1.I came from the Storm 9530 (first gen) I have to say the viberate is about the same maybe better I do now notice when I get a call.
2.Defaultly you can't (anyone correct me if I'm wrong) but there are plenty of apps that do it for you the notifications show on the top of the device even before you unlock which is nice, but apps like handcent give you popups when you get txt allowing quick reply without having to unlock device or find the txt message along with custom LED colors and custom notifications on the notification bar(top bar).
3.I could cook a full meal while I waited for my storm to boot now it is very quick just timed it and it took about 1 min a little under but you will not have to do battery pulls like you did on the BB.

About the vibrate. i dunno how good the 9530 was. but the 9550 blows.
Theres no actual vibrate mechanism, the screen is what vibrates. If u guys are saying its worse than the 9530 and the 9530 is as bad as the 9550 than thats basically a deal breaker for me.

Does anybody else ever experience that phantom vibrate from their phone? your phone may not even be in your pocket and you still feel it vibrate? My paranoia first got developed because of the 9530. I've noticed it has subsided a little since i got my droid. That may be because i have a reason "DROID!" to not be in vibrate anymore.
