Pros Easy to use, not to big, good screen, key board not to small.
Cons Batter life, signal reception
Summary This is a good phone for someone who wants/needs more than a basic phone. I'm not a text-obsessed teen but someone older who besides making and receiving phone calls needs to occasionally send and receive texts and who needs internet access while traveling. I also enjoy the option of checking news and sports sites when waiting between flights without having to drag out my laptop.
There are two big drawbacks to this phone. Call signal reception. Whenever I replace a phone there seems to be a correlation between costs and signal reception. The more I pay the worse the reception. This observation is based on the performance of my last three phones. Also, battery life. I know other reviewers have mentioned this but with low to moderate, not constant use, the battery is only good for a maximum of two days.
Would I recommend this and/or buy it again. Yes, but watch the battery.

Pros Small & Has a Keyboard, & is Easy to work.
Cons Turns off all the time, drops calls, stops charging,
Summary I don not recommend this phone to anyone!
I have had it since September of 2010 & went through 2 phones and an extra 2 batteries.
& having to go to the sprint tomorrow to get a new one.
It rarely charges, drops calls, and turns itself on and off constantly.
It's a waste of money.
Pros QWERTY keypad that slides out.
Cons Memory issues. If you don't shut it off for a bit at least once a week, it will go into a loop of rebooting. Cannot handle large files.
Summary Gives me a little internet access, although it can't handle flash sites. I can get the news. I don't send many texts, but do access hotmail and yahoo mail through it. Had trouble with the email from my ISP, that kept crashing the phone or failing to update. Also can watch some television programs in short snippets. I haven't had any problems with signal quality for calls. Camera quality is poor, but I didn't buy the phone for that.

Pros Keyboard, touch screen, fast and easy to get on social networks such as Facebook, Myspace...etc.
Cons touch screen texting, camera
Summary Texting on the touch screen can be a bit confusing, and the camera takes a little less then average photo's. But besides those qualities I love my Rumor Touch and glad I got it rather then the seek:)
