I picked mine up yesterday, biggest reason being the desire to dump AT&T as my carrier, and join the rest of my family phones on VZ. The network quality is not even comparable. I had a Bold, and loved it, just the ATT network was pitiful anywhere I traveled. The port and transfer of info, which I did when I got home, was flawless...I'll be waiting to see if I get a call from AT&T retention.
Overall, I'm happy with the 9650. Slight change in size and feel, but thats something you just get used to over time.
I do have to buy a couple car chargers, as the power connector has changed, but thats just a quick trip to ebay.
I'm a little curious about battery life..seemed like this one needed a charge pretty quickly, even after having one earlier in the day. Need to go back thru setup options and make sure I have all the power wasting crap disabled.
If I hadn't read the comment about the trackpad being "crooked" I probably wouldn't have noticed it, and honestly, can't really tell on mine if it is or isn't. Maybe my failing eyesight here is a good thing..
The SMS screen..yea, not crazy about it, would be nice to have the ability to choose old style versus new style. I'll have a definite opinion of that after this first work week using it.
Overall, I'm happy with it...way too long a wait for it to come out, but we've all seen that before.
