thanks for being honest...

it's about time at&t gets called out on their bs...
"The main menu has been littered with AT&T apps..." - I couldn't have worded it any more perfect. at&t really cannot grasp the concept of customer choice.

get real

Every real person I have talked to that has this phone loves it!!! I mean really loves it!!! There are thousands of really great apps with easy access to them right from the phone, and most are free! You can create a google shortcut on your home screen in about 2 seconds. This is the most customizable phone I have ever seen! You can make your home sceen have what ever you want on it. I haven't seen that on many phones! Delete the AT&T stuff you don't want. It takes a half of a second. Sure, the battery could be better. But, my wife and I have both been using this phone non-stop since we got them and it makes it through a day just fine. Simply charge at night by your bedside which is what I have done with every phone I have ever had...

Great phone +potential

I saw a backflip at the AT&T kiosk on Friday the 5th, and for some reason they sold me the phone two days before the official launch.

phone is great. my biggest complaints would be the processor speed, and the battery life, and the lack of push facebook notifications from a native facebook app, especially with a phone that boasts its integration with social networking sites.

Contacts are awesome. The way I see it is most people have hundreds of contacts, so even if that number were to double via the induction of an entire facebook friends list doesn't change much. Just search by typing the name. My favorite part of the contacts is how they display the latest facebook/myspcae/twitter status update, gives email addresses, and facebook ph...

Google Music

The article mentioned that the default google music player was burried in a sub-menu. Can somebody offer a hint on where? I haven't had any luck finding it.

Two questions on Backflip (contacts and delete messages)

I am trying to figure out the following:

How do I quickly search all contacts to make a call?

How do I delete all messages in universal or separate boxes?

Can't figure out help. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

Outdoor visibility

I am not quite sure how you can claim that the screen is useless outdoors. It has the same reflectivity in sunlight as the iPhone and the Storm 2. I have compared them all side by side and there is no difference in visibility under direct sunlight. It kind of makes me wonder if this aspect was actually tested. If the device were AMOLED it would likely be even worse.

I have had this phone since Sunday and the only real complaint I have is that battery life could be better. However, many times in the past for me the battery life improves after the first few full charges.

Bluetooth and Voice Dial - Can these work together on this phone?

Many times I find myself having to make HandsFree Phone Calls from my Car over the Garmin GPS Unit I have installed. The most safest and convenient way ofcourse is via. Voice dial, which my Garmin has the capability to do. however, it requires that the phone also support the same. I've been successful working with T-Mobile's handsets for the most part in the past using this feature but not with my current Samsung a867 Eternity Phone. So my question to all is: Does the Voice Dial that is available with this phone capable of meeting my needs as I've described here? OR do I need to modify something or perhaps install a Market Place App that would fullfill my purpose here?

Bonus (and completely separate) question: Does anyone know of a ...

AT&T ruined an already struggling phone

The Backflip was not a great execution to begin with, as you clearing pointed out in your review.

Any hope this phone had of making any dent or convincing anyone in the marketing that AT&T was ready for Android was destroyed with the way they treated this device.
Removing Google Search is an insult and a tragedy of the highest degree. On top of that not allowing users to install "unknown" applications on this "open" phone is ludicrous.

AT&T has really destroyed my faith in them on every level. It is truly sad that the largest Cellular company in the US is so stupid when it comes to Cell Phones

Didn't agree with the review

A few exaggerations ( esp on size and weight).

One way to conserve the battery is to remove the Happending widget from the homescreen and just let it be part of the menu and you look thru it as when you want.

Only thing I agree with is all the ATT programs everywhere.

This is an excellent phone depending on what you are upgrading from
I prefer customer reviews from those who have to use the devices everyday.
I don't recall ATT ot Motorola saying this would be the latest and greatest device above all others. So the reviewer needs to step back.

I have this phone and love it.

Can't download SWYPE beta keyboard :(

The phone won't let you download from untrusted sources and we don't have an "allow unknown sources" option under the Applications menu under Settings.

Just and FYI

Darn. Crying or Very sad

Camera?

Where is the lens on the camera? do you have to have the phone flipped open to take pictures? I looked at the pictures posted here, and can't seem to find the lens...
