Im planning to buy this phone...but do you guys know if the memory card is hot-swappable? Also, on the keypad, do you really have to press the keys? I thought the keys are touch-sensitive? Thanks!
I got my e8 just yesterday and my keypad is allready broken, i dnt know how exactly (maybe becouse i pressed 2 keys at the same time :S ) but now my numbers dnt show clearly and i can see the photos and music icons (but un-lead, just the icon)
Many thanks for so many comments (unaccountable) from U2dV (that was before until August) and t5W7 started sometime in August 08 until now for your contributions.

Andy, 20 Sep 2008Hi Stu....I think u seriously need help mate lol...
I look after my phones but not to the bor... moreYup mate, I'll be seeing my psychiatrist soon (LOL).After reading your feedback, I re-inspected my E8 again, so far no hairline scratch marks yet (YET). I do agree that it could happen sooner or later so my intention is to "try" my best to maintain its condition. The only time my E8's placed on a table is when I'm at home otherwise all the time it'll be in my pocket with only fabric contact. It's true (LOL) it seems like an obsession on my part but that's normally how I treat my properties ie, wife, daughter, cars & so on... (LOL). So let's see when the first scratch is going to happen, I'll probably need to celebrate.... by getting a ZN5 (LOL), like what you did.Seriously, there's reason why I handle my phones the way I did, it's because I treat them as one of my survival tools (at least that's how I perceived them). Communication is really important in my line of work so a phone with good voice quality, reception signal, reliability are my priorities in choosing a phone, hence my choice - Motorola. I can't recall exactly how many deals/projects that I've closed via mobile phone alone and its positive contributions toward my work leading to my family's livelihood - That's how I see it, man. Therefore I always respect my phone like the way a carpenter respects his tools, his survival tools.
Good day man.
Stuart, 18 Sep 2008Hello mate, for the E8's cracked, you bought the ZN5? (LOL). User friendly huh? Good for you. ... moreHi Stu....I think u seriously need help mate lol...
I look after my phones but not to the border of obsession lool.
I guarantee that the E8 has already been scratched up lol even a hairline scratch???
