yeah it does kinda blow.
but what needs to be recessed into the case is the screen, i was so pissed when i scratched it because i was planning on getting a screen protector but whats the point once its scratched. if those bung-holes wouldnt put stupid pictures/writing all over the screen protector that comes on the phone, then i would still have it on there, and my screen would be pristine. scratches piss me off.
what really blows about it is the lack of wifi, and not implementing a little scroll-slider into the music library like you have in the contacts. their customer service sucks. they now have an 800mhz smartphone, the Jet, while i have a 166mhz pentium that is faster than the impression. I still like it, for the AMOLED and i've never had a touchscreen or full keyboard. getting your own apps on it and running is a bit complicated. to have such a nice display and a full keyboard, it should have wifi, or at least the option to do more than just fileshare via bluetooth. its really the phone's software thats the problem. it took me a long time to figure out how to even change my im ringtone, or find the missed calls.
but about that unlock button, if i am having trouble with that stupid button, i just slide out my keyboard a little bit, or all the way, depending on what i want to do with the phone.
sliding out the keyboard is faster than holding that button down.
but locking your screen is way too easy. its handy for when you actually want to lock out, but if you are doing something and hit the wrong button, instant screensaver.
with a screen and keyboard, it should really be more like a computer. i havent gotten to try out the internet, but the browser does look like it would make a good browsing experience, switching between pc and mobile internet mode. but my account is set up with the data-opt out. i am barred from doing anything involving data. mms, web, email, videoshare, gps. none of those functions are of any use to me, so i deleted them. thats probably why i can hold more text than you.
to do that, you're going to need TKFE, and to know the master codes. google'samsung impression forum' if you want to do that sort of thing, deleting locked apps, placing your own apps in their place and locking them, etc. i just wish iknew more about java, so i could write my own apps.
alright that is the first chapter of my book 'sir talks alot'
ubuntu just finished reinstalling so i turn this computer off and use that one now.
