    Checked a few minutes ago, Amazon wireless is stating I might not get the phone until post-Christmas, which means I will have waited over an entire month with no phone. Kind of ridiculous seeing as I placed this order weeks ago.

    I talked to one of their reps, and they said they have no idea when stock will come in.

    That is... absurd. Completely 100% ridiculous. What are you going to do? Keep waiting? If it wasn't for the cheapness of the deal, I'd say forget it and wait for CES to see what's coming up in January.

    I'm just going to have to keep waiting. The Titan is *the* phone I've wanted since it was unveiled in July. Amazon is saving me $120 if I upgrade through them instead of AT&T (AT&T is charging $199 for an upgrade to the Titan; Amazon charging $79).

    And yes, this waiting is absurd. I already waited 2 months since the Titan came out in Europe on the first week of October; now I'm being asked to wait another month as they can't fulfill their orders.

    Good luck on the waiting then! Hopefully a miracle will happen and you'll get it sooner rather than later. :)

    Lovin' this thing so far! So much nicer and so HUGE!! I don't miss the Arrive at all. :)

    Man this phone is BIG! I knew that going in but unfortunately had to order blind as there were no units in the entire state of VT for me to get a hands on with.

    Now, I do have small hands for a guy and so far I'm struggling with normal use of this phone compared to my Focus.

    I do like the build quality and the screen is very very good but I'm starting to have doubts about whether I can adjust to a phone this big. :(

    I think you'll get used to it within 2 or 3 days. It didn't seem all that big to me compared to my Focus. I mean, sure, it's noticeably bigger. But not by a lot. But it can make some one-handed activities a little more challenging. Like if your thumb isn't long enough to reach the other side of the screen when typing one-handed.

    And therein lays the problem. I cannot reach over to the back button very easily at all. I'm finding I have to change this phones position in my hand often to be able to use it. Compared to my Focus I'm finding it very dificult to do anything easily with one hand. :(

    Sad, but better luck with your next device! Maybe you should wait for the Nokia hotness dropping next year?

    That's the plan. I've always been a huge fan of Nokia devices, owning an E63, E71 and E72 before going full touch screen. I really hope the rumored Nokia Ace is coming next year.
