Something you should know

One thing I found out the hard way after buying this phone is the stunning lack of customization. Every other Motorola I've had you could make the two soft keys and the four direction keys (and the side smart key when they had them) into shortcuts for any program in the phone. This phone however, you not only ONLY have the four directions as shortcuts, but the two softkeys have been locked by the provider. They are NOT "Options" and "Main Menu" as the picture shows, but rather "e-mail" and "Music" and are UNCHANGEABLE. The thing that makes it even more outrageous is that there is a dedicated Music button on the phone, which goes to the Carrier's music program, but the softkey labeled Music ALSO goes to the SAME music program. So they've locked TWO, unchangeable shortcut keys on the keypad to the SAME, provider music program. Terrible, lame, and idiotic. If you need to hysterically paw at your phone until the music program comes up, then this is the phone for you. Who knows how long it will be until the provider releases a phone where EVERY shortcut key has been changed to the provider music program. Lame.
