Actually, now being able to both dial and receive phone calls, this 
issue moves down the 'issue ladder' for me. It doesn't work in a sexy 
way, but it works!

What I would rather like to see now is working text messaging (SMS) and 
better battery life, because then I could switch my regular mobile phone 
to the Neo for every day usage, and that would put many more testing 
hours into it. Right now, it is only after I come home and have time 
sitting down with it that I can fiddle and test it, and that makes a 
huge difference.

If emphasis could also be put into providing more characters in the text 
messaging, eg. European, Japanese and Chinese characters, that would be 
helpful, too. You know, text messaging in Europe and Asia is sometimes 
more important than voice.

Then, having a USB mode = Mass Storage, so that when powered up, or in 
the boot loader mode, being able to directly access the SD or SDHC flash 
card would make access to it easier and less demanding with moving the 
flash card back and forth between the Neo and a reader, when populating 
it with a new kernel and rootfs image. How and when do you suppose that 
is coming along?

In general, how do I put such functionality road map priority wishes 
through? Bugzilla? Or is that only for actual defects?
