    It's my first smartphone as well, but if the call quality is crappy for me, it does warrant a replacement or something. I mean of all things that should be good about a cell phone is that!!

    Please elaborate on your major glitching issues so the rest of us can be informed.

    This phone is hands down one of the most innovative phones Ive ever seen. What other phones have a track-pad, a similar keyboard, any social networking features that even start to compare with motoblur(besides phones that have motoblur), and features like the tabletop mode and the dim screen while on a call? And yeah, its android 1.5, but so what? It works fine, and Im sure there will be an update in the future.

    And everyone keeps complaining about how yahoo is the default search. Get open search! It takes up less room on the screen, its overall better. And about lag, any smart phone can lag with too many things running in the background. The phone runs fine for me, its a phone, not a computer.
    I agree that this phone is a breath of fresh air in a sea of Android phones on the market. There are other Android phones that are faster, sure, but even though it is not a computer it is nice to have a phone that can keep up.

    Yahoo search is very annoying along with the "ATT Music" labeled music player. I installed the google search by voice and was pleased that it added a voice search button to the browser as well. I have opensearch too, but it does not work with the keyboard search button. The whole idea behind an open source OS is the ability to customize it to our tastes, and it is annoying when the phone comes from the store being locked down. Why can't we uninstall the preloaded bloatware? And why can't we install apps that are not on android market without having to resort to using the USB cable and ADK?

    I think call quality is good too, although it did take me a couple minutes to get used to the "sounds like I'm in a tunnel" earpeice.

It was fixed within a couple days... but as far as call quality, awesome! Speakerphone works really well too. And I have that clear case for it, doesn't cause me any issues at all.
    I have the same case and have used my phone with and without the case to make calls and I do not notice a difference or have gotten any negative feedback as far as call quality is concerned. What I do not like about the case is the puddle of water effect it gets when the middle of the screen cover sticks right on to the touchscreen.


    I may return my Backflip also though. Not because I don't like it or not even because it is slow, but because the phone I have really been wanting is finally coming to AT&T- the Palm Pre Plus.

    I have a thread about my considerations for getting the Pre Plus vs this phone here:
