Will be interesting to see how many pick up this phone and what they think of it. Being one of 2 Android phones that don't require the 4G tax, it may be popular.

I picked one up yesterday at bestbuy also. Free phone friday. So far I like the phone for the free price. I would not have paid the $99 they want for it though. Realistically it should be a $50 or free entry level android phone for sprint.

Would someone be willing to upload their 2.1 ROM to megaupload? I've got a Cricket Zio, and there hasn't been the eclair update as of yet. I would like to see if I can get the sprint ROM to run on crickets phones.

Thanks. :)

Picked this phone, two of them actually, up last Thursday at BestBuy. My wife really likes hers. Me, meh... I think I may have got a dud. Her battery lasts a LOT longer than mine; I'm charging before the work day ends and hers is still going well into the next day. Nope, i'm not a more heavy user than her either. My phone also seems "buggy" i suppose would be the best word. In fact tonight I swore it was possessed. The virtual keyboard, to me, is not easy to use at all; my messages look more like an easter Slavic language than anything resembling English.
I do love the size of this thing though. It's svelte lines and thinness is what sold us to begin with. We don't want large digital bricks in our pockets and purses. It's very lightweight as well and I barely notice it in my pocket. The OS and it's user interface is great, first foray into Android and I'm liking that aspect o the phone.
All in all, even after only five days of ownership, I think I may be trading this one in on something with a slider keyboard and hoping also for a phone with less "bugginess" but keeping with Android for sure. My wife, she's keeping the Zio.

Quick update: I traded my Zio in for a Samsung Transform and couldn't be happier. The transform is not without it's flaws of course, but I'm not having nearly as many issues as the Zio and the hardware keyboard benefit cancels out the extra weight issue for me. My wife will be keeping her Zio as she seems to really like it.

i returned the sanyo zio on 11/03 (got it on 10/21). the touch screen is really poor and non responsive. signal strength is very poor. battery life is also very poor. my husband has the motorola droid (verizon) and showed me all the ways to save on battery life (he's a computer/tech geek), and the sanyo zio still had poor battery life.

I couldn't deal with the touchscreen and random reboots. Took it back today and got the LG Optimus S for free at Best Buy. It comes with 2.2 and is way better so far than the Zio. It can switch ID's in less than 10 seconds. No lag so far eather

This phone dials random numbers while sitting on the desk. It dialed my boss when she was out of the country!
The screen won't light up most of the time when taking off of lock.
The nav app couldn't find an address 2 miles away, instead it was trying to send me 463 miles away even tho the address was complete down to the zip code. The voice changes when using nav. And no, I haven't downloaded another nav voice app.
The touch screen keys are so out of whack that I have to press two keys away to get the letter I want.
It doesn't ring when paired with the bluetooth. It has to be unpaired for it to ring. If I am not wearing the bluetooth, I don't hear it ring. When using my BlueAnt it disconnects every few minutes then reconnects. Which is very annoying as the BlueAnt talks each time something happens, so it is constantly saying "There is no phone currently connected" Then "The phone is connected" over and over and over all day long.
It depends what day it is for the battery to stay charged. It seems when I don't use it much, the battery discharges quickly and after using the car charger, it won't hold a charge for long. I want another phone!!!!
