That's actually pretty good to hear. Motorwerks is also my dealer, and my experience with their service department so far has been somewhat less than stellar.

No, but it was certainly a step up from what I was getting before. Besides, I figure that emails and calendar can wait. SMS is a little bit more immediate.
