Wow, I hope these problems are fixed in the update to 2.1.So I've got the phone, but it has so many issues.
First of all, most of the blog entries all said it was multi-touch. It's NOT!! Is there any possibility that's something that could be fixed in the future? I don't know if it has the hw, but maybe they didn't finish sw support or something.
Also, lots of programs randomly close. Like the google maps navigation sw, if I switch from portrait to landscape, it simply exits. I can start in one or the other, but the moment I rotate the phone, closed. There are many programs like that. It seems their implementation is really buggy, I hope 2.1 fixes much of that.
I went to watch a movie trailer on youtube yesterday and the phone simply froze while on the load screen. I had to take out the battery.
One of the biggest things I was looking forward to with this phone was google voice support. I've been using GV for nearly a year now. Well, I installed the google voice app, and it's great, I can use it to call out and for txting. But now, if I try to make any call without google voice it says "cdma: reorder" on the dialing screen and won't complete any outbound calls. So I'm basically forced to only use my GV number, I was planning on that anyway, but it shouldn't break regular calling. I don't know if it will work if I'm out of 3G coverage now, which could be a big issue.
Support is worthless because their only solution is to reset the phone, if that doesn't fix it, too bad.
What other issues are people having? Anything similar? Any solutions to any of these?
I really want to get this phone, and this is really making me wonder if I should get it.
