    1. IMAP email. I have tried every possible configuration to get IMAP to work and so far no luck. What's worse is I get this strange error message which force closes my email app. So while it's not a deal killer, I am stuck using POP email.
    2. Unified Inbox: When you first set up the phone you are required to do with a Gmail account. This account cannot be unified with your other emails in one nice happy unified inbox.
    3. Random reboots: Yes, and I have had a bunch. Seems to happen when I have running multiple apps then go into my email app boom it crashes.
    4. The power button on top is a royal pain every time I fire up the phone. I should be able to tap the screen or something with one damned hand and not two.
    5.Apps without a quit button, seriously. Yes this phone is supposed to multi-task, but if you have 9 programs running in the background, unless it's a PC you will get drag on performance eventually.
    6. If you are going to provided a charger, something that will reach the outlet is nice. The power cord is like 2 feet long.
    7. Oh syncing were have you gone. If you have all your music and videos in iTunes then so far bad news. I have not found anyway to get my music on to the phone.


    #6... heres a fix... USE YOUR STORM WALL CHARGER... thats what i do ... that lil cord is waaaay to small...
    #7 there are a few apps im hearing about such as the MPT from motorola but havent checked out yet...

    #5 Isn't there a task manager app built in that you can use to kill apps (among other features)?

    I have gotten the force close message as well. I just click ok and it opens back up for me.

    I haven't had any random reboots yet **knock on wood**

    1) okay, had a major problem with the email last night. Here was my resolution and it will work for you, promise.

    Go to you BB Bis account (if you are using BIS) and edit your emails, go advanced, all of the settings you need for the droid are there. Just put them in the droid just as you see them. This fixed all of my IMAP problems.

    3) Yeah no exiting out of apps, but download Task Killer Advanced free and this will take care of it for you.

    6) Yeah the midget ass charger sucks but I use my S2 charger.

    I tried the BIS account settings, no go there. Not sure what's up with IMAP but it surely is driving me nuts.

    Are you using the right ports? I've forgotten what they are for IMAP (know POP uses 110 & 25 though). I'm just wondering if it's a port issue.

    Or maybe a username problem. Try the following (keep in mind I've not touched a Droid yet so I may be off).

    username+domain.com

    Using either + or % rather than @ may be a fix. Just a thought.

    I tried both of these and fooled around with the ports still no go. Thanks for the suggestion though
