Don't agree with the review

I have had the D2 for 3 days now. Previously I had a Pixi Plus and Incredible. The reception and battery time on the D2 easily blows away both of those other phones. I find places where I was barely able to get calls on the other 2, I now actually have 2-3 bars and have clear calls. I use Touchdown with push and talk about 3000 minutes per month. By the end of the work day, I still have 60-70 percent battery left.

Their is a known problem with the D2 involving Exchange. While mail and calendar syncs great, contacts do not. There is some chatter about deleting the categories of the contacts but this has not helped me. Also the D2 applies a security pin when using exchange, even if you server does not, and forces you to use a pin to unlock the phone. The phone allows you max 20 minutes before you will need to enter pin each time before you use the phone.

The fix right now is using Touchdown which does not have these issues but forces you to pay another $20 for third party software rather that using the phone's native software.
