Default after a week

Please Login to Remove!

After a week I am getting a better grip on this. There is definitely more of an adjustment period than with the other BBs I have had. The big positives for me is the slide out keyboard. I don't care how good a touch screen keyboard is.. they are tough for long emails. Nothing is as good as a blackberry keyboard. Liking the big screen and browser and the camera is pretty darned good.

The biggest call management negative I see is that there is no way other than using the screen lock, to hide the in call touch screen buttons (hold mute speaker add participant) so I have been hitting it either with my hand, face or it gets activated when I slide it back into the holster.

The only bug that I have found that happens every time is that the entire screen freezes when I try to add a note to a number when on a call. That function is something that I find really useful. Can get around it by using the memo pad but its not as nice as attaching it to the phone number.

Maybe these things will be worked out with the new software?

Hey Kalinka, you now show 9800 in your profile. So, you've adopted the Torch? It's a great device...
