Summary: How do you expect to compete or stay a prepaid giant when you drop a touch screen phone in 2010 with like 4yr features. Its a big deal since its prepaid. No! This is not a new company, this is not a broke company. If I'm going to spend $400 on a phone, it better blow my socks off. Been with boost since 2002. Back then the chirp thing/ direct connect, blew socks off. This was there time to shine, and they blew it. I thought they were coming up when they dropped the blackberry curve. I had that. I was like okay. Now we doing something. [The Blackberry runs of the CDMA Network, why would you try to run a touch screen with multi features on a slower network like IDEN. Makes no since] Don't tell me the chirp/direct connect is the reason for that. If so, that that crap off. Come on Now! Blackberry didn't have a chirp. I could use these whole 5000 characters talking mess, but I'm just gone list more of the cons.
[While on the phone] If you do switch to another app and come back to the phone call. You will not be able to push any buttons. You can push em, but nothing will happen. Example: I called my voice mail. Switched apps and came back to the call. The automated system was telling me to push 1, 2, or 3. I pushed 1,2,3 more then once but the automated system washing taking it. It's touch screen, it's not like I'm pushing it to soft. I even did a hard push and nothing.
[Youtube] How could you not play youtube. That's like saying happy birthday with no cake. [Extremely up set with that little move]
[camera] How could your 5MP Cam take crappy pictures like that. I mean it looks like. HD on the phone before you snap the shot. Then after it like *** Happen.
There's countless number of glitches. That's some what expected. But there's to much on the phone.
[Wifi] If you don't have wifi, downloading apps will take forever to complete.
[Android] Although this is my first experience with the Android Market. Why were we giving the 1.5v when i see there is a 2.1v out heading into v2.2.
[Updates] I hope we get them, and soon. This phone could be such a high lite for boost.
