    They had three left at my store today (9 when i called on saturday, they went quick!). I updated all 3 lines on my family plan.

    The production date is 240209. It seems that some of the issues people were complaining about in the earlier releases has been fixed. The loose battery cover and the "wave" across the screen when pressing enter is not immediately apparent. However, the keyboard wiggle was obvious in 2 out of the 3 phones. Doesn't bother me much, so its ok.

    One thing is that the battery slot is really tight. Is this normal?
    Other than that, love the phone so far.

    Good for you....I didn't have any luck finding one in my area, so I had to deal with the backorder drama.
