Try reading with attention, eh?
Well, I guess it wouldn't be too bad if you lived in an Apple.
I had an HTC Windows Mobile phone here in NZ, and it did a lot of what you want, quite well. I sold it off to get an iPhone, but that's because 1) I could buy it as a bare phone (and it is actually cheaper than some of the alternatives here); 2) I can use it on prepay 3) it has the standard lexicon of Ancient Greek available as an app, which is a killer a. for me.
I think most of the problems people have with the iPhone in the USA are really carrier problems, but you seem to have some of the shittiest carriers in the world.
If you push the "extra ice" button on the soft drink vending machine, you won't get any ice. If you push the "no ice" button, you'll get ice, but no cup.
