some minor issues, should i swap?

Ok, I took the plunge and got the z6c.

I really like the look and feel of the phone, but have some minor grips with it. Just wanted to see if others are having the same issues... and whether if exchanging for another one would be worthwhile.

1) sometimes the ringer doesn't right; for a brief period of time last night, when the volume was set on max, all incoming calls did not cause the ringer to ring. vibrate was working... after poweroff, remove and reset the battery, poweron... it seems to be working now... I HOPE THIS was just a one time glitch.

2) the right "contact" button (above the CLR button) makes a creaking sound when depressing it. hard to explain this but it just doesn't sound or feel like the left "message" button.

Had the phone fully charged since sunday morning 4/6, unplugged it and only had a few short conversations and a few text messages. It's now at 2 bars left on 4/8 tuesday afternoon. At most it'll probably only go for another 1 or 2 days. This is a far cry from the advertised 15 days! Heck, I'd be happy with just 5-7 days of battery life. I've tried other tricks too, like disabling "location on" gps (only using e911), keeping bluetooth off, and disabling EVDO signal, but nothing really helps.

Also, here are some annoying software glitches and other issues:

1) when you raise or lower volume during a call, the di...
