The Xperia could be such a nice phone, but the user interface, and most importantly, call quality, are just horrible. I mean having to navigate 3-4 screens to turn the flash off --when you're in camera mode, is just ridiculous.
I read tons of reviews and it only got 20% recommendation rate from users.
If Sony/AT&T got off of their asses and made it user friendly, I'm sure it would sell like hotcakes. It has excellent hardware, its just the software that really blows.
As mentioned earlier, I got the Samsung Captivate. I was going to go with the R2D2, but then came to my senses. The phone is white --I'm a mechanic. Bad combo. That phone would be black in a matter of a day. Not to mention the Samsung is one helluva durable phone. Metal backing and so on. Would definitely be beneficial to resist burns from welding when in my pocket.

AT&T used to be pretty bad around here, but they've gotten considerably better. I asked my bro about it (he's been using AT&T for several years), and he said that they've dramatically improved their service. I remember ~2 years ago they rewired the whole area to make it Uverse ready.
