A great set, and i Must say i should post here the fixes to the only problem one might have. My phone had less batt time, so i installed Juice Defender App Free version, it makes it about 1.4 times the battery time with Wifi on the whole day It freezed randomly during the day, black screen and had to remove batt and put again to start the phone. Happened atleast once a day right from the first day. Here's a solution for that i found and worked for me.

1. on the key pad, type *#*#197328640#*#*
2. Select [1] Debug Screen
3. Select [8] Phone Control
4. Select [7] Network Control
5. Select [2] Band Selection
6. Select [2] GSM Band Preference []
7. Select [5] GSM 900

In step 7 try different bands to see on which band you can make calls. I'm having Froyo 2.2 with no upgrades to firmware

If the problem is still there, then in Advanced Wifi Settings, turn Wifi Sleep Policy to 'Never' and disable "apps sync data in background", only android market won't work without enabling it, otherwise every other application does.

I hope this helps..I love my phone and that's why i don't want you to miss such a great phone for such small bugs that can be fixed...
