Yes, I am.. for what I do with it, it's been working well (phone, sms,
gps) in germany as well as UK.. of course, a few quirks are still
around... but I'm happy to work around them.. (like rebooting once I had
WLAN on - can't seem to power it down again so it drains battery.. or
that I need to split sms manually when sending)

I use the SHR-testing image which I patch manually echo-free.. (some
clever guy posted that once on the list (where to put the 187 command
in)) I would say what-where, but got the instructions at home.. :S
I understand that the SHR-unstable is already echo-free - but has other
more severe problems instead? I stick with testing. :D

I use it as my everyday phone just fine.
Haven't really got around programming for it, though.. :(
