I can reliably crash my new Nokia 6230i, with overuse of ellipsis in the SMS editor. If I end a message with a trailing off thought (like I never do, right...) and press down in order to jump to the top of the message to re-read it, the UI freezes and the phone resets itself about 10 seconds later. That shouldn't happen, should it?

In other news, the 6230i is an improvement on the 8310 because its T9 predictive text dictionary can spell "custard". This pleases me greatly, as does the fact that efficiency and deficiency are T9 twins. Simple pleasures...*

* See?!? I can't help it... This is a problem.
