Pros It's a smart phone, prepaid. I haven't used it yet, because I'm trying to get these little slots for the sim and other devices to open.
Cons One thing the reviewer states is that trying to open the slots for the different devices was too tight, and so far I agree. I am trying to get the doggone sim card in and out and have to use tweezers. I've dropped the phone twice, and have not even used
Summary One thing the reviewer states is that trying to open the slots for the different devices was too tight, and so far I agree. I am trying to get the doggone sim card in and out and have to use tweezers. I've dropped the phone twice, and have not even used it. It's just not an easy phone to handle for the tiny devices you have to insert and use.I've had a while to play around with the X2 and I'm disappointed and thinking of returning it to Target. I have a prepay account and it is very limited. In order to get the photos from the phone, I have to a) send it to another mobile device or b) install OVI sfwr (which I did) and use the software to transfer. Well the OVI sfwr blew my Win O/S and I had to restore all settings. There's no other way to get the photos to your computer except through Nokia's software. Also in order to use the full internet service like email, you need to be on a monthly plan.

I think I'll just give it back, because it's not what I expected. Will stick with the Samsung T139, at least I can send the photos to an online account.
Pros Better key shape than Blackberry, decent screen. No touch screen (can't stand them). Very pleasantly surprised at MP3 sound quality through good earbuds, not perfect but good enough for me to stop carrying my Sansa player. FM Radio is a bonus and rece
Cons In a word, T-Mobile. Their billing administration on prepaid monthly is TERRIBLE. We have more than one of these in the family and they've dropped off auto-bill to credit card twice. Re-activating is a giant pain in the @55. With Boost, you can re-act
Summary Excellent phone for short money, but prepare for clowntime when dealing with T-Mobile account administration.
Pros Querty keypad
Camera Is not too bad for 0.3mp
Large screen - the resolution is not a problem trust me!
Very customizable homescreen and other display options
access to Facebook and Twitter
Access Google Docs for mobile phones and Youtube fro
Cons No WI-FI
Long loading time during web browsing etc
No document viewer (I have seen this beta app called s40reader... not sure if its compatible, will test it).
Summary Its worth the money and more! If you are on a budget, and you can't afford a Blackberry, and you would like a similar phone... I think this phone is a good substitute. Its not a smart phone buts its still awesome.
Pros MP3 music/radio, style, color, comfort
Cons Button clicks, VGA camera, USB/MicroSD slot access
Summary I got this phone after downgrading from an iPhone 4 (personal reason, not financial reasons). I was impressed by the slick design and screen display. Resembles those higher-end smartphone LCD displays. To access the card slot and USB sync, you actually NEED to take the battery cover off and open the tab, which is a minor inconvenience for this phone. I was also impress by the radio function as I like music to calm me down after a stressful day. Even though not an actual full-featured smartphone like Apple, it satisfies people who are looking to text, email, talk, and listen to music on a daily basis.
Decided to downgrade from Apple fanboy iPhone 4 because of stress on keeping up with data usage and constantly checking if I went over it every month. Before the iPhone, I originally was under T-mobile prepaid before wasting the last 400 minutes because the year expiration was up.
Very good phone indeed.
Pros Threaded messaging, physical keyboard, large navigation keys, good basic music player, decent call quality, easily customizable, keys and ergonomics easy to adapt to.
Cons Hard to access MicroSD slot and USB port, lack of dedicated volume keys and camera key could bother some, vga camera (1.3 could have been better), propriatary charge port (usb only transfers data, does not charge phone)
Summary Good overall entry level phone if you don't want something as complex or high strung as a smartphone. I downgraded from a smartphone because I thought it was too much for me. Then again I am a big fan (the only American one?) of both the Symbian Series 40 and 60 platforms...
