Update Dec7 9pm: Marked resolved a few top issues, updated bluetooth section, and dell customer service response
Update Dec4 2am: Corrected some text and added
Update Nov30 7pm: Added two pending resolutions, and two resolution notes
Update Nov26 5am: Added three things @Art_Mighty noted, also 1 additional
Update Nov24 6pm: @DellCares, says some folks over there have read over this post, and the "mobility specialists" are going to go over it in detail on Monday (after Thanksgiving). So my guess anyone looking for a replacement or to buy the Dell Venue Pro your going to be waiting at least another week or two. I'll update this post though if I get responses from Dell.
In an attempt to help dell support out with the Dell Venue Pro, I'm making a list of issues with it and hopefully they can resolve these issues before they "officially" release the phone. It would also be great if dell can give a response to each one of these issues so I can keep this forum post up-to-date. Dell please tweet me any responses or updates you would like to this post @xer21
Top issues (5 1/2 issues remaining, 5 1/2 issues resolved)
Suggestions for the phone (9)
I don't think Dell has control over these next issues but I find these following usability problems when using the device, these are not show stoppers though like the top issues.
Microsoft Issues (5)
Hey I even got some for T-Mobile! LOL...
T-Mobile Issues (3)
Fellow Dell Venue Pro Users, do you have anything to add or see something I'm wrong on here?
Please let me know, and anything you would like added I can review and update the post.
The DVP is a great phone. I love mine. But you need to face facts, it's two years old and it's basically been End Of Life'd by Dell. The camera was my biggest gripe. I learned to live with it. Then there's the GPS problem. Face it, they aren't gonna be fixed. It's an old phone in tech years. If you really love WindowsPhone (like I do), get something new. I went with a white Lumia 900. Beautiful, fully functional phone.

guess like the other manufactures they started rolling out tango the last few days doubt it fixed much related twords the dvp itself. but from what i read a subsiderary of benq's is the odm for dvp/dv just tells you how much qc they do now
