Sweet! Mine just got here. Didn't get my tracking number until 11pm last night, but one of the first to get it. Not gonna complain. There goes productivity for the rest of the day.
FYI, no signature was required (this was a residential delivery).
Edit: Don't know if this will apply to everyone, but I happened to order my phone off a Premier account and didn't have an activation number. Had to call support at 866-499-8008. Sat on hold for a few minutes but it was pretty painless.
Some first impressions about the device (moving from a 1st gen Samsung Focus)
- It's definitely much bigger in the hand, but not so noticable in the pants, thicknesses are about the same
- Screen-wise I'm glad I didn't go with the Titan. this reminds me of when I moved from a Tilt 2 to the HD2. Same screen resolution but 3.6" to 4.3". The difference in sharpness of the screen is noticable, but it's not bad. I suspect as with the HD2, I won't notice it after a while. Pixels aren't visible unless you really stare, it's just softer
- Color temperature of the screen is different from the Focus. Not sure if its a good difference or bad difference
- Blacks are slightly deeper (it is noticable though) on the L900. That's impressive.
- Build quality of the L900 is worlds beyond the Focus. No random rattles, which leads me to...
- The vibration on the L900. As the WPCentral review pointed out, it's this horrid metallic sound. I guess I can get used to it, but it sounds awful and cheap
- I don't mind the band around the screen. It's barely there.
- This screen is brighter than the Focus, both at the high end and at the low end. Not thrilled about the latter part for night-time reading
- Camera on the L900 seems snappier than on the Focus
- The scrolling thing isn't bad. Like many people have already pointed out, there is no lag (none). It's just slower (read:different)
- In setting up my live account on the L900, twitter and linkedin automatically came over. I had to set up Gmail and Facebook manually
That's all I can think of for now, just took it out of the box. Question for other people though - is there any way to transfer my text messages from one phone to another? I haven't figured that part out yet.
Edit #2: Just got visual voicemail set up so I thought I'd post how to do it to help people out. I was on an existing account with old 2gb data plan. When I activated my phone, the person on the phone told me that my data plan was already provisioned for 4G LTE, and I figured that was correct. Turns out it's not a switch in the data plan, but a completely different dataplan altogether.
I called 611 and she told me that I would need to move to the 2gb data plan with LTE + VVM (still $25/mo). After she did that, I had to call into voicemail again to set everything back up. After doing that and disconnecting, a prompt showed up when I pressed on the phone icon asking for my VVM password (default is your phone number, no area code, but I changed mine in the setup). After that, a new menu to the right of history showed up, called voicemail. I had to restart my phone one more time to get rid of a message saying it couldn't connect to VVM. Sent myself a test message and it works great!
Also one thing you might want to look for in determining if you're data plan is the LTE one or not (I would guess only works in an LTE market). Originally, the icon next to the signal strength said "4G". After I had my plan changed, it now says "LTE".
Hope that helps.
