A configurable gesture menu would be great but it could create an Apple Support nightmare. This phone is a brand new concept for Apple and has only been in the hands of the masses for 1 week. Why on earth are people bashing Apple for not getting it exactly right? This phone will evolve w/ software updates and if you aren't one who likes change, they made 2 other iPhones that are EXACTLY like last year's model. Stick to that and maybe jump on board next year. The X will not hit that happy medium for quite a while.
