Re: Quickfires have been recalled. Read for info on getting a free exchange for a Propel.

Here's the thing... I paid $50 for my Quickfire. I paid $100 out of pocket with a $50 rebate. I used my phone upgrade at the time.
The Propel is being offered for the exact same amount right now. I fought for the Vu when I called warranty and was denied. I accepted the Propel. For me, it was a fair deal. Sure, I lost the touchscreen, but I gained so much more.
I had the Propel in 2 business days. Got everything off the Quikfire and on the Propel in a few minutes. Shipping was a breeze.
A week into it, I LOVE the Propel SO much more than the Quickfire. I would have never picked out the Propel, but I'm glad I have it.
Quickfire: landscape slider mandated a two-hand grasp
Propel: Portrait slider means I have QUERTY access with one hand grasp
Quickfire: Developer demanded how you use your phone
Propel: With adjustable shortcuts I can get everything I use in one touch
Propel: Actually loads webpages at 3G speed
Everything works on the Propel!
No bugs, no locks, no lagging touch screen, no faulty alarms, calendar is the right day AND date
Basically, every gripe I had about the Quickfire works on the Propel
For me, it worked out.
I'll probably still look into the new LGs coming out in May, but for now I'm happy.
