So google would not connect. I gave it a day and works fine now. Sounds strange but the steps took were. Turned off phone>disconnected plate from back> plugged back in made sure it was flush> turned on and turned off wifi> set up google account. Worked! Not sure if timing or luck of the draw but if you are having issues try that.

When I get this Focus S I'm planning on using it as my "daily driver" just cuz I want to see how it compares to my captivate. I'm sure sound quality will be better with my crappy, but Focus S has 4G in some places, and I'm pretty sure it will have a better GPS lock and Wifi signal. We'll see when I get it though.

Calling sounds like the only option for me. I would drive down to where it is at, but it's an hour drive...

I went into the store the day after my email.

They had already run out of HTC Titans, and Focus S's, so they offered me a choice between a Titan II, or a Focus Flash. I took the Titan II, used it for three-four days, traded it with some guy on Craigslist for a Galaxy Note (About 2 weeks old one), sold the Note on Craigslist for $525 .


My brother unfortunately got a Focus Flash, and....yeah, it might just be better to keep that phone, nobody is buying it.

"Dear Microsoft Store Customer,

Thank you for participating in the Windows Phone Challenge! We're thrilled to say that response to the challenge far exceeded our expectations. While the response to the challenge was great, the incredible demand also depleted our inventory of many popular Windows Phone models and, unfortunately, your preferred choice of Windows Phone is no longer in-stock. We are actively working to secure more inventory and anticipate receiving additional inventory in the next 4-5 weeks. We genuinely appreciate your patience.

We understand that 4-5 weeks is a long time to wait for your new Windows phone. If you would prefer not to wait for additional phone inventory, we are pleased to offer an alternative. Instead of receiving a Windows Phone, you may visit the Costa Mesa, CA Microsoft Store where you participated in the challenge to receive a $200 Microsoft Store gift card for use on any products carried at the Microsoft Store. If you choose the $200 Microsoft Store gift card option, you will not be required to recycle your existing phone, but you will no longer be eligible for a free phone from the Windows Phone Challenge.

Of course, if you elect the option of a new Windows Phone, we will let you know when your new phone is available.

Thanks again, and we hope to see you at the Microsoft Store soon.

Microsoft Store"

I got this a few days ago. Who doesn't know that free stuff attracts people...? Haha
