I'm not sure "finally" was the descriptor you were looking for when discussing the menu system, guys. You've been able to use the D-pad to hop between the different menus without reverting to the main menu on Sprint's Samsung phones since the a500 -- maybe even the a460, I can't recall -- back in 2002.
WOW! i never, ever, noticed that before. looking back at screen shots from my previous reviews, i see what sprint did now was add arrows and feature the little indicator that you can move horizontally more prominently. i seriously never had seen that.
