The dailies are "minimal" systems that are designed so that you have
to install additional software (eg. by logging in via USB networking)
to make it usable.

I'd guess could be
a good start, since unlike 2008.8 release directory, FSO has gta01
images available. Of course it's also pretty basic without installing
additional software but should theoretically work phone-wise just ok.
AUX button switches the keyboard visible/hidden there, see wiki for
more instructions.

If you don't want to do anything besides basic phone functionality,
Qtopia might be best for all users at the moment (though 2008.8 is
working quite problem-free already, too). But for the flexibility of
free software most people bought Neo:s for, other images are better
since you can run any software instead of only Qtopia software.
