It's Motorola, of course it isn't perfect!
Nothing they make is perfect. Don't look for this phone to be around long.

Great Start
The criticism that you can't download a song over the phone is
ridiculous. Look at the iTunes window. it has so much info on it.
Imagine trying to find a song navigating a tiny screen.

Being able to carry your songs and phone in one device is very
good.

ROKR E1 Problems
Today I will take back my second ROKR E1 and cancel my Cingular service. Sometimes when trying to rewind a song the player gets locked into a mode where you cannot play any songs, it just fast forwards through the entire playlist. Unplugging the battery will fix the problem until it happens again which in my case was several times per day. I will now buy a real IPod instead.
