I was just reading up on your new phone Here and man that thing seems nice... you will have to report back any problems you find, because everything I have been reading seems to be good to go.

so far it's pretty sweet....it's going to take some getting used to...but not much (i'm relatively smart)...

you HAVE to use the TouchFlo3d app (you're not required to...but it's sweet) for navigating the thing....makes it...sort of iphonish without it being a piece of junk.....flip through pictures....slide through menus etc...

for extra apps:

MochaVNC for windows mobile is a must (they've also got an SSH client and an AS/400 client)
gotta get the "advanced configuration tool" (google it)....makes getting into a lot of settings easier..and total commander will let you edit the registry etc...

also "torch button" makes the camera's flash into a flashlight
and you've got to get slidetounlock2 ...makes it much easier to lock/unlock the phone...as well as a host of other fun things..

so far my biggest annoyance is that the D-Pad on the front of the phone kind of sucks....it's kind of hard to make it work right....the one INSIDE on the keyboard works great

I'm currently using Wisbar Advance Desktop on mine (No TF3D for me), there's quite a few nice themes in their forum and found the one I like. The front or home screen is pretty empty so I can see my wallpaper, time, date and battery level. There's a text message, calendar and temperature pages that are easy to navigate to as well. I really like this theme because I only really look at the time, battery, text message and temperature so this cleans up the interface.

I'm also using QuickMenu which expands the Start Menu (just like in XP), easier to navigate to my programs without having to open a new window.

Hey Bhowett, you need to flash a new rom on that and get TouchFlo2d. It's the 2D version of Touchflo3D, it works MUCH better than the stock Touchflo.
