"Great entry level qwerty phone."4.0 starson by flny007
Pros: No data plan req'd. Good spacing between keys on the keyboard. Very good voice quality. Battery life not terrible. Very good pictures for a 1.3MP camera. Bing Local Search is a great Poor-Man's Google Maps.
Cons: Verizon OS. Verizon browser(!!!) 2.5mm headset jack. Strange charging issues. Keyboard buttons a bit stiff. The phone itself is pretty thick.
Summary: Great if you want a qwerty keyboard but can live w/o 3G data costs. The keyboard is a good bet for people w/ larger thumbs, although a bit stiff. The Social Network shortcuts are a nice thought, but implemented poorly. The feel is solid for a plastic phone, but I feel like I need to be very careful w/ it. Scratches already appearing on the screen. (Buy a screen saver!) The quality of display is good.
Battery life: I can get 2-3 days of light calls and text, but typically one day per charge.
I'm no fan of MicroSoft, but the integrated Bing Search is slow but handy. Allow it to use your GPS location, type in 'Irish Pub', and it will come back with a good amount of bars currently near you, including a map, directions from your location, and a Call link. On a more advanced phone, I would HATE this feature, but on a cheap phone, it's a blessing.
Verizon MobilWeb browser is still laughably horrible. Unusable.
Despite Verizon's attempt to wreck this phone w/ their software, it has good call quality, good features, good hardware and decent battery life.
