hey dudes ... thanks for the reply!
for the first poster... ok, it may be worldwide known that it peels off, but it is not certainly an excuse for a $600 phone, i think this has a very bad quality finish. I think it is also not an excuse to say most PDA's have a problem with sunlight... a non-reflective screen has not to be that expensive nowadays (all phones have one !!!!!). For me the issue is that, when combined with a touch screen and a sunny weather, the problem is really serious, the phone is nearly unusable
I am investigating the GSM issue because any cheap phone behaves noticeabily better.
