Well I was the first one in line to buy this phone and was very excited.

I came from an iphone 3GS and knew this was not the iphone killer but hoped it was close.

From the start I had issues retrieving email from my personal email account. I was forced to sign up for Gmail in order to use this phone.

The phone has issues DL attachments from Gmail and kept showing a blue question mark in place of the attachment. In my Verizon mail client the attachments would hang forever or fail to load from the server.

Right now I am leaning more towards your email problem being more USER related then OS related .......
