"No problems here"4.0 starson by MrsSmithII
Pros: Faster than my 8330
separation of sms from email
higher level of customization for profiles
far more reliable
Cons: -too many similar folder icons; difficult to quickly tell which folder you need
- doesn't use a universal USB
Summary: I'm not sure why the previous reviews are so negative. I especially don't understand the complaints of the phone 'not working'. If it doesn't work then it's broken - take it back.** I also have NO problem with battery life. I use several networking apps that update information constantly through the day and I still have at least 30% of my battery left when I plug it in at bedtime.
I had the 8330 previously and had many problems with it. I have had no problems at all with my 8530. Compared to the 8330 it is so easy to use. My browse and app speed is amazing, and get all my messages on time. I also have no problem getting my Hotmail messages and my call clarity is excellent.
If you're a power user then sure, this might be a simple phone to you - but for someone who just needs reliability and speed for messages, calls, and email: this phone is perfect.
