My suggestion to you is to buy an unlocked/unbranded handset. One that comes from the manufacturer to you. No carrier corruption/manipulation!

I've been using an unlocked/unbranded Nokia N95-3 now for almost 8 months and I love the customizing options. I can even asign quick access to apps on the navigation keys, I've got txt msg assigned to left, contacts assigned to up, calender assigned to right, notes assigned to down, and calculator assigned to select, it's really great, and useful. And I have many themes that change the appearance of the menus.
