Maybe i'm teh luckiest guy in the universe, but i've been using my fr as 
a daily phone without problems (i am always reachable, i don't even know 
what wsod is, echo is there, but barely noticable, no buzz, te testing 
image is *FAST*)
there are some issues (e.g. i don't like the qpe apps), but the basics 
are working RELIABLY.
the antenna the put into the pill is awesome: i am the only person at 
the pub, who has reception (which is not always a good thing, becaus 
there are so many annoying folks out there who keep stealing my time).

i am using the testing image (but i also have a backed up 2008.9 which 
is working perfectly, but slower than the testing, which is why i 
switched to testing)
