Moving from Sidekick II to P1i

I'm moving from Danger's Sidekick II to Sony-Ericsson P1i. Here are some steps I took to make the move useful to my needs.
  1. Read reviews on P1i. Watched some YouTube reviews of P1i. Read P1i specifications and technical white papers. Compared with iPhone and P1i in Sony Style and Apple shops. (6 hours)
  2. Ordered P1i from Amazon. (1/2 hour)
  3. P1i arrived well and ready. (7 days)
  4. Transfered phone contacts' phone numbers from Sidekick II internal memory to SIM card. Each contact's phone number has to be transfered individually. Only phone numbers could be transfered. (25 minutes)
  5. Removed SIM card from Sidekick II and placed it into P1i. (1 minutes)
  6. Placed battery into P1i. (10 seconds)
  7. Started P1i. (1 minute)
  8. Made first call to a contact on P1i. (5 seconds)
  9. Browsed the P1i manual. (15 minutes)
  10. Connected P1i to home W-LAN (WiFi) system after a simple scan of all W-LAN's available within range. (30 seconds)
  11. Browsed the web. (1 minute)
  12. Configured and tested for my corporate e-mail at Sun Microsystems Inc. (4 minutes)
  13. Downloaded first batch of 75 e-mails from corporate e-mail account using the W-LAN. (7 minutes)
  14. Wrote and sent first e-mail reply. (3 minutes)
  15. Started Bluetooth (P1i carries 2.0 version) and synchronized, through Handsfree, the P1i mobile device with our Toyota Prius phone/navigation system. Transfered phone book. (2 minutes)
  16. Dialed a number from the Prius. (5 seconds)
  17. Received and responded to a call from the Prius. (2 seconds)
