Nice phone, but a few issues

This is a really capable phone, and has pretty much any option you might be looking for. It's very comparable to the Razr, but in my opinion a little more rough and tumble. That is, I'll toss this phone around, but I wouldn't want to sit down with a Razr in my pocket.
As for my issues with this phone, they are few but significant. The volume and camera buttons on the outside of the phone are far to pressure sensitive, so you are constantly turning on the camera and taking pictures of your phone case, or turning your volume settings on. It's really quite annoying. I know at least 5 people with this phone, and it does the same for all of them. Purse, pocket, belt clip, doesn't matter. You will definitely be pushing them by accident.
Next, the built in MP3 player is cool, but takes forever to load up, and it's a real pain getting your songs to be usable as a ringtone.
These are my only issues with this phone.
I saw on another review on this site that someone was disappointed that the V635 was discontinued in favour of the V635i, but that isn't true. The i was simply added to the phone name when the 512mb card was bundled with the phone. Anyone who purchased the phone before the card was bundled should have been able to go back where they bought the phone, and gotten the card free if they showed their original receipt.
