I am not sure what is going on here with Nokia; but i am glad (i think) 
that others are having the same problems that I have been having.

As for build quality, this device is suffering.  The other night i had a 
new problem; the sound was always coming through the speakers no matter 
what i plugged into the 3.5mm socket.  I had to reboot for it to be 

I am slowly becoming saddened and disheartened with this device.  What 
was once a pride and joy, has become a "will it or won't it work" device.

Will not be standing in line for the next Nokia device that comes out, 
thats for sure.
