Mine works wonderfully. Are you calling vim by typing "vim" or "vi"? "vi" is
actually a symlink to busybox, so it's a very stripped-down version with no
syntax highlighting.

I did manage to add vim as an alternative for the 'vi' symlink, and now I
set it up by "update-alternatives --config vi" (as root):

Nokia-N900:~# update-alternatives --config vi

There are 2 alternatives which provide `vi'.

  Selection    Alternative
 +        1    /bin/busybox
*         2    /usr/bin/vim

Press enter to keep the default[*], or type selection number:
