So I went out and bought one. :)
My phone number is the same, and tonight once I get the MobileMe account set up, I should have all my contacts etc.
Now, to start going nuts with apps! ;)
I plan to do some heavy-duty putting this thing through its paces this weekend, including tests down at the Richmond ComicCon. But if all goes well, the long national nightmare of Gneech Trying to Get a Phone That Doesn't Suck may finally be over!
