I Gotta Say I'm Kinda Disappointed

I got my Q yesterday...stayed up until 2am editing the registry per your guys recomendations... but some of its basic features are what is lacking.
Correct me if I'm wrong or just plain stupid.
-No ability to copy and paste
-No built in notes that sync with Outlook
-No MMS (I did read about this before buying so i guess ishouldnt complain)
-The question mark is a pain to access
-Video recording is tiny when played back
-Picture Caller ID is a joke
-I cant edit tasks (just create new ones or view old ones)

I knew it was WM5 Smartphone but MAN...I guess I might have to get the 700wx instead. If there are free programs that can fix some of my issues please share. Thanks in advance.

How is the "?" hard to access?

You just hit the "zero" key.

Most of your concerns are legit, though. I've just switched from a 6700 to a Q. I was tired of having to pull out a stylus to do something as simple as changing the profile to vibrate (don't get me started on that useless rocker switch on the side).

One tip I can give you on the video size. I "sling" video from Beyond TV to my Q. The default mapping of the "0" key to "fullscreen" in Windows Media Player on the Q didn't seem to work for me. So I mapped it to the spacebar. Now when I hit the spacebar my videos go full screen. It's still a pain that every time you pause or change the volume it goes back to windowed mode, but that's the case on the 6700 as well. At least on the Q everything opens landscape by default, which I love.

i just installed Papyrus, and i see that you can edit tasks. its a great app. and this is the rest of the info:

Papyrus turns your Smartphone into a powerful time management system. Papyrus offers innovative and compelling tools to manage and keep track of your schedule, plus advanced views, category coloring, and icons far beyond the ability of the default Smartphone Calendar and Tasks programs. What's more, Papyrus is highly customizable, so it works the way you work while keeping the intuitive and user-friendly interface you expect of your Smartphone.

here is the link: http://www.sbsh.net/products/papyrus/
