    Hey...everyday is Christmas . no way in hell would I put this back in a box. Got mine last night and hooked.

    Security wipe and put your old device in the box and seal it up. You can re-gift it. LOL

    Okay all those solutions sound great, but no one has offered their selfless help. Thank god I'm here; I will gladly hold that Z30 for 7 weeks, and get this! You don't have to pay me, boy am I generous
    PM me for details! (lollolololol)

    Open and use the Z30 now, but download a leak at Christmas. It's the gift that keeps on giving!

    I say just go ahead and use the Z30 and if your wife doesn't like it, tell her to marry another guy

    Open it, set it up, use it, love it, and keep it for yourself. Wait until the appropriate time, buy it, wrap it, give it, help set it up, teach about it, and enjoy the fun together.

    I got the phone! I got the phone! I got the phone! It came early! I opened the big box to reveal the Z30 box. So excited. Then the wife took it...

    My Christmas wait begins.

    I hate to be... what's the term... a wet blanket? but only because I was unlucky enough to have two defective Z30's back-to-back (one with non working touchscreen, second with bad battery), that I would recommend checking it out within your return window.

    Now to be clear, I have not read any posts on the forums about hardware issues so you probably have a 99.9% chance of having no issues. I must have pissed someone off for some reason or such giving me some bad karma that I got bad units. And since, at least in Canada, you could probably get a brand new unit through warranty exchange through your carrier, there would be less reason for concern.

    Still, I know only because of my experience that I would want to check it out. Up to you though. I don't want to remove that feeling of getting something to play with on Christmas morning :-) And if you have a venue to return it if you do have issues 6 weeks from now, then keep it in the box. But if you will be screwed 6 weeks from now with a bad unit then I would say check it out... or have someone else check it out for you to confirm it is fine and then box it back up. That way you have the confidence of no worries and that 'yippee' feeling on the 25th.

    My two cents.
    Chances are yours came from a defective batch and the two you got that were issues were part of that.

    Do what we do in the house for early gifts. Give the gift early and remind them that there will be one less gift to open that day and don't complain on the day that you have non gift to open.

    Tell your wife that you are a grown man and not some six-year-old boy (as she well knows ). You are not going to wait until Christmas to use a smartphone that serves a purpose in your life.
    Agreed! You have a 9900 for chists sake! You can't get a new phone unless it's an xmas gift? Take underwear for xmas!

    Let's just say my negotiation skills need serious improvement. The only way to convince her to purchase the Z30 was the Christmas angle. I guess it worked and ultimately backfired at the same time. Lol

    On the bright side, gonna be one hell of a Christmas for me!

    Warranty starts from the day of purchase, not usage. So yeah. A reason good enough to convince her.
