The battery is draining quickly indeed. The data connection sturdy though at the "wireless controls" section which is good,since previously I had internet connection problem all the time with various Roms.

Funtaztic ROM. Fast, stable and so ELEGANT. The battery consumption is moderate if you use Radio 2.08.50.08_2 My only comments are:
-Please update the Cookie Home Tabs and CHT Editor to version 1.7
-Please update Opera to Opera 10 Final
-Please include the dialer (not sure the name (I found it in other custom ROM, but the function is to automatically terminate the data connection upon certain trigger)

I also need a world card mobile and My market place CABs, where can I download it?

Thanks for the best ROM ever!
