It is normal for the phone to move while open.
The battery door shouldn't wiggle at all.
Your lag that you are seeing could be because of to many widgets.
If you take the widgets that you dont want to use off your main screen they will not run in the back ground.
If you replace the native SMS and email, they will still run in the background you just won't get any notifications. But there still will be a copy of the messages in the native folder. Any widget or shortcut you have on the main 5 screens will consume cpu cycles and battery life. I would recommend using task killer as it helps lag a lot.
Glad to have you a part of the forums.
I also use advance task killer and I have everything that originally came on the phone on the ignore list. (i.e. gmail, messaging, phone, and i also have facebook on it too)
What do you mean by disabling the clock/notification?
I dont think there is a way to customize the message/happenings widget.
you can see the time by pressing the lock button on the top of the phone. You can download an SMS application called Handcent which will give you the option to have pop up text. Any other message you get (email, facebook, twitter) you will have to unlock the phone.
Welcome lucaszieland, excellent questions. I have gone back and forth on replacing the original SMS messaging with Handcent or not and the email with k-9 . I really don't find anything wrong with the built in features and now that I know they are running in the background anyway I might just delete Handcent again.
Hvae you tried some of the other browsers like Opera or Dolphin?, I have tried both but keep goign back to the built in one....but this is one of the many cool things I like about the phone, two weeks in and I am still discovering new things and playing around with it .
I don't use google mail at all so I have this option turned off. I use a hosted exchange account for my mail, calendar and contact sync.
