Re: Are you still getting the device after all the bad stuff we have read?

Just put in my order this morning through telesales. Definitely want it, even more so after reading what people have said because for the most part - most people love it. Only a few aren't happy, and from those, only a few actually don't like it, the others like it but want some bugs fixed.

Its not going to be perfect, but it sounds like it can get near perfect with the proper programs and ROM updates.

As for the bad hearing, etc. If the fixes online don't work, they need to return it as not all people have bad speakers. I will be doing that until I get one that is hardware-wise, perfect.

Re: Are you still getting the device after all the bad stuff we have read?

Come on Cody! Go for it! Nobody comes on a forum to say "hey my phone is working perfectly!" or "My phone hasen't had a single problem yet" but I know they are out there....because I'm one of them. I'm sure that there are way more people that are not having problems than those that are. I say go for it and judge for yourself! If you don't like it return it before 30 days are up! Good Luck!

Re: Are you still getting the device after all the bad stuff we have read?

Go ahead and get it. I've had mine since last friday and have not had any problems except i can't get word completion to work. the battery doesn't last as long as my mogul but it will last all day with normal use. the only time mine got real hot was the first couple of days i had it. that was because i was messing with it all day non-stop. this is by far better than anything other pda phone i've had before.

Very true, exactly... For every person that posts regarding a problem, there are several pleased people who just don't post to say so. This is true for almost anything.

Re: Are you still getting the device after all the bad stuff we have read?

yea I'm still getting it. Almost every electronic device has problems when they first come out, they usually end up fixing them. I'm worried about the battery life, but with my Touch I'm getting about 7 hours of life out of it before it is dead. So I don't think it'll be that big of a change for me. As long as it lasts 7 hours I'll be fine. And I realize that now someone is going to come out and say it won't but I'll be the judge of that lol.

I think you need an addition to the Poll. All this bad stuff is overrated and the TP rocks. Of course I will/have gotten it.

Remember, the complainers are always the most vocal. Best phone I've ever owned, despite the battery life problems, which are my only real complaint.

I'm always on the (cheaper, more debugged) trailing edge. But its fun to follow you early adopters. Go forth! Blaze the trail! I'm right behind you
