There is hope for those that ordered. I placed mine yesterday around 2pm EST and when I called back last evening and they said that it would not ship until Wednesday. No big deal, then I called this morning and the lady said that it would arrive today.
The SIM card was rejected because when I purchased service I was planning on porting over a number and they did not give me a temp. number. Just got up and running. As most have noted incredible screen, fast browsing, etc. The keys are not to small and I have adjusted fine. Only problem is finding the alt key since it has moved up a little bit. Lovely device.
