ok you know everyone cries about how VZW cripples this and cripples that.

1) AT&T cripples everything they releaseby putting it on that joke they call a network.

2) I'd really like to understand why you feel the UI has been "crippled"?

I understand that they do cripple the obex bluetooth profile. However to be honest that's a contractual requirement by the Get It Now vendors. They don't want people sharing thier ringtones and applications so they require that VZW disable obex. And yse Dialup is usally disabled but it doesn't even require you to hack the phone to turn it on. just a series of keystroks such as ##dialup on te moto's and VZW will even tell you now how to turn it on.

Thos are bluetooth profiles though and not UI's

I've used phone from t-moble (talk about crippled) I've seen phones from AT&T btw the UI in the rocker was exactly the same as the e815, it was just a diffrent color.

I really don't see wht is so "crippled" about the VZW ui. I find it generally simple to navigate most suff is in a logical location.

Please explain so i can better understand.
