    Thats really about it so far. I have had a fairly easy transition from BB. BTW, I saw that VZW has a 2100mah extended battery in the system for $60. Has anyone seen this?, it must have a different back cover?. If it doesn't drastically transform the phone into a chubster might be great.
    I'm wondering about the dock someone said they saw, so I'm waiting to see if I can get a dock and larger battery together. It's such a slim phone and I'm used to a Storm2, I think even a bit thicker would be fine.

    I have yet to run across a phone that is great outdoors in direct sunlight.

    My friends Palm Pre[Plus] is great in direct sunlight, she keeps laughing about it every time she shows me.

    I am coming over from Crackberry. I just ordered it online last night. Right in time before they sold out online! Anyway, should have it by tomorrow. Can't wait!

    They say the first time you experience android & sense UI, it's amazing. I am wishing for it to be amazing. Tired of blackberry's "familiar" [to users who used BB in the 80s] OS.

    I am really concerned about the back cover breaking. Plastic clips all around the entire phone, especially around the charging port, make it difficult to remove. I removed it twice today -- once to put the battery in, once to swap in my 8GB card from my Storm -- and thought I was surely going to break one of the clips. Doesn't seemed designed to be constantly opened up. I think if in the future I buy a battery from VZW I will have tech support at the store install it... that way if they break it, they buy me a new cover.

    Other than that the battery did seem to drain a bit faster than my Storm 1, but I'm willing to sacrifice a bit of battery for the amazing speed. Seriously, the web browser is amazing. It blows away my Storm, and I had co-workers at work (who ALL have iPhones) drooling at how fast pages were loading/rendering.

    Other than that, just not knowing the phone or the OS. Learning curve with customization and figuring out how to maximize battery life.

    After using this phone for the past few days it is the ****. The battery is less than desired. I will have my siedio 1750 for the eris tomorrow, so I will let you know if thats any better. I hope it adds some weight to the phone. Otterbox better get on this wagon soon.

    Is there any way with the stock SMS/Android vs. Handcent/Chomp to make it so the same SMS from the same sender isn't all lumped together in a single "conversation" thread?

    Coming from my BBPearl, say 'Joe' sends me 3 SMS's, they are 3 separate SMS's that I can read/delete individually. But with the DI (and yes this is my first day with it, I know DI noob!), is there any way or another SMS app to make all the SMS's even from the same sender separate like on BB's?

    Not a deal breaker, but I get lots of SMS's from people that I either delete or keep, and with now a long "thread" SMS conversation all bunched together, I don't want to say delete or save the whole thing.

    Thanks!

    No gripes so far. Nice phone. To those that talk about it feeling cheap.....there's a definate difference between feeling cheap (Pre) and Light. This phone is super lightweight. I must admit I do like the feel of it better with the crappy case I bought at VZW on it. Can't wait for some quality stuff to come out for this little gem. Now back to playing with it I go!

    I think even BlackBerry is moving in the threaded message style. That's how it worked on my Storm.

    Same here... I bought the black "jelly" checked look case even though I wasn't sure if it was going to be any good, but I actually like it. Gives a tad more weight to the phone and feels good in the hand.
    The VZW screen protectors, well that's another story. I'm going to return them tomorrow. With just the factory protector, there's prints/"goobage" all over the screen. So, I'll need a full front protector soon!

    How do they work? Rarely... I've only had intermittent notification. Even BB had their issues. It seemed on BB that I received 60-70% of the notifications. With Android, I've only received a couple so it's probably at about 10-20%.

    However, the rest of the phone clearly makes up for me having to review Facebook notifications manually within the App...
    The facebook not giving updates does bother me, it only updates every half hour. Also not in love with the integration with my yahoo mail either. I like to be able to delete a email on my phone but keep it on my account. You cant so far.
    Other than that I love the phone, damn keyboard is amazing compared to my storm and the internet/app tasking speed is blazing fast.
    Also I was skeptical but need a case bad so I bought the body glove and love it ..not otter box rugged but very rugged.

    I only have two gripes during half a day of exploring...

    Just can't get my work exchange account to setup properly. I hope it's a configuration thing on my corporate side and they can address it. Otherwise I'll be bummed.

    One of the apps I was most looking forward to downloading was an LED flashlight. There was a BB one, but it wasn't free. My friends with Moto Droids had them for free and I was jealous...so far, I still am!

    My friend was looking over my shoulder as I was reading, and she started laughing. I asked her why she was laughing, and she said she gets the best of both worlds. When I ask what do you mean she showed me.

    Apparently on her Palm Pre[Plus] she has a single conversation thread, but can swipe(delete) a single message, so she can keep only the received messages she wants, but still have them in one single thread.

    like stated its threaded SMS. It the way all platforms do it.
    Nope, Palm Pre[Plus] can have both.

    Dude both here and on CB you are brutally honest.....totally respect that bro.

    You make me feel like I made the right choice, I mean I know I did, but battery life is always an issue but heck what phone gets great life anymore except BB's and my curve gets a few hrs but if I open an app and forget to close it, it takes forever.

    I am guessing that everyone with this device that nobody is closing apps and that is why battery life is low?

    You can delete a single SMS by pressing and holding it until a menu pops up with different options including one to delete.

    they actually do it differently than everyone else because they tie everything together in one combined "thread" and it can include instant messaging apps along with SMS. But its stiill threaded
