I've had mine for a few weeks now and made the transition from my Tytn II. Here's a list of irritations:

EMAIL
* I find the "messages in an envelope" interface for email really irritating. It's OK if you only have a few emails but as I get loads I always use the Inbox. It's always hit and miss whether sliding over an email in the envelope will move to the next one or open it
* When viewing the Inbox it's hit and miss whether a finger movement will scroll down the list or open the item you're on
* Sometimes when I return to the Inbox the status bar is missing and th message list goes all the way down. I have to go to the drop-down task list on the home page and quit the email and restart to get it back. The status bar in the Inbox is useful knowing if it's still downloading messages and how many there are to come
* If you have a number of images attached to an email which you have downloaded and you view one of them you can't swipe the screen to scroll through them but have to return to the email and select the next one

WEB BROWSING
* The Opera browser is really pants. The whole thing of having to change into and out of text selection to navigate a page/links is stupid. I'd love to be able to remove it and install the standard Opera Mobile
* The zoom thing works badly in Opera and IE. On a big page opera shrinks to fit, IE shows it full size, but getting the page to display at a manageable size is difficult in both
* I have one site that worked perfectly on Opera on the Tytn II. In Opera on the TP2 if I go there it reboots the whole device. It works fine in IE which must be a first. The site uses a lot of flash

SMS
* It no longer gives an alert to say an SMS has been sent (but I love the conversation display for texts - brilliant)

GENERAL
* Auto-rotation of the display according to the device's orientation is hit and miss. And sometimes the screen displays half one way and half the other
* At the top of the home screen are five icons (data, signal, speaker, battery and tasks). Why does clicking the first four no longer show you the properties/manager for them individually? It's useful to be able to terminate a data connection if it's stalled or see the accurate battery state or set to/from vibrate only from the home screen. Instead you have to go into the relevant section to do it - unnecessary taps

VODAFONE v TMOBILE
* The data coverage on Vodafone behaves very differently to T-Mobile. With T-Mobile I got an H all the time or no signal on occasions. With Vodafone I very often get a G or 3G. Is this just more accurate way of reporting or does the Vodafone network fall back better than T-Mobile? Or is Vodafone's H coverage worse? But overall I think I get a data connection of some sort more often on Vodafone than T-Mobile

Be interested to hear what others think
