Received the phone for use in France, yesterday.  It seems to work here, too.  I'm trying not to wonder exactly why, as in oh holy hell is it running up charges as if it is calling from France?  Because it does have a French phone number (ie, the prefix is ooh-la-la, though inside France you drop the la-la and just say ooh).  But here's the thing: I hate it.

Oh, I like that it does lots of things.  But I spent half a goddam hour trying to type my name into something.  Its 'smart typing' should be relabled incredibly sensitive and enragingly idiosyncractic random character selector.  And the size of the freaking keys makes me feel like my fingers belong to Andre The Giant.

Why didn't the size of the damn phone even occur to me?
