Initial Reaction to V9M
--its gotta be in there, keep lookin'
And as far as parenthesis go, im sure they are in there, there has to be a symbols section of some sorts. You dont leave off parenthesis in ANY phone, especially a $300 one.
The two issues you have mentioned are extremely basic and I am positive that they are on the phone somewhere.
Hope this helps.
my initial thoughts:
What a huge phone!
When it comes to the entire RAZR line, really, everyone fixates on how slim they are... yet they're quite wide and tall for flip phones.
Just not as compact as you'd think.
