    I cant take it anymore. I am never ordering through the post office again! My phone was supposed to be here today, and it's not! I hate that I cant track it. That what I get for getting a free delivery. Should have paid the extra for UPS. Sorry just needed to vent. My wife doesn't understand and is calling me a baby lol. I want this freakin' phone sooooo bad.

    I detest waiting for things too. I've seen me go buy things locally far more expensive than I could have got them online, but oh no, i have to go get them so I don't have to wait. (Makes no sense whatsover)

    You aint the only baby around, that's for sure duke1231. :)

    LOL!! Maybe it's a man thing, but I love shiny new electronic gizmos, and I want them NOW!! They made a mistake by giving me a hard date like the 29th. Now I think it got lost. The funny thing is, is that I had ordered it on the 23rd, and it didnt show being received by the post office until the 27th, and you cant track packages through the mail......it's just plain stupid.

    How is it coming, First Class or Priority? You can't track First Class but you can certainly track Priority, the cheapest and most reliable 1-3 day service.

    I've also tracked post-office mail. Who's the shipper so others can learn (Thanks), and optionally, where are you? This probably reflects on your shipper. I've received packages that are postmarked the prior day although the shipper sent me a "your package has shipped" msg several days earlier.

    The more people you have to blame, the easier your burden will be.

    You are a baby; it takes one to know one. ;)

    YEA!!!!! I got it today, when I got home from work!! The phone IS FREAKIN AWSOME!!! Even my wife was like "my Iphone 4 feels so outdated." Anyway what pisses me off is that it came loosely packaged and has no USB cable WTF. I am not sure where I am going to buy one from :(

    I'm so glad you liked your phone, duke1231! It really makes an impression, doesn't it. So fluid and minimalistic, the OS is a beauty.

    Simplicity is king for sure! Is there a way Is for my twitter app to let me know when I get a new twitter post. Like when I ja d my blackberry, I had a social feed app that would let me know when someone I am following posts.

    The official Twitter app doesn't yet have a live tile duke1231, won't be far away I don't think but some of the other twitter apps do, if you try them out you might see one that you like.

    Beez, seesmic, birdsong, motweets, rowi etc, some of those apps feature live tiles.

    I keep picking up my phone and just playing with it! it's what, a year old? seems like a newly released phone except of not having a front facing camera. honestly though I don't really need one. Buttery smooth, silky smooth doesn't even come close in describing the OS.

    Hey Duke, I know its been since the first that you got your phone. Its awesome that you're enjoying it as much as I did when I first got it. I was going just to add this, with Mango, on the Me tile you can scroll to the "what's new" section. Doesn't notify you persay, when someone post something new on twitter, but its nice to have it there along with FB. I'm loving Mango, kinda feels like a new phone. Keep having "i can do that!?! nice!!" moments. Hope this helps and that your device got updated to Mango.

    I bought my first WP last Friday. My Focus is supposed to arrive Wednesday. I keep checking Ebay for a tracking number. So far there is none. I also keep checking this forum to try and learn as much as I can before it arrives. I've been with WebOS for the last couple years so I have to totally relearn everything.

    By the way Duke, right now I am using Twitter's text message function for updates. Everytime someone I follow tweets, I get a text message of that same tweet. Works well for me on WebOS. I'll probably try the same when I get my Focus. Hope it works out just the same.

    If it's through the USPS, you won't get a tracking #, just plan on 5 working days.
