It's not like I ever used it but they should at least let me reassign it..

Me too!

It's kind of irritating but a bug I learned to live with. My phone will just randomly ring BBPro 1 every so often. I can't wait for 5.0

Threaded SMS

The interface on 5.0 is really neat as far as threading goes. It's on 4.7 but much cooler on 5.0.

The phone will work fine all day and then all of a sudden stop sending calls. The only way I can get it to start working again is to yank the battery, with or without powering off first.
