Pros easy to use
Cons tempermental phone - only works when it feels like it, display not on outside, more below...
Summary I bought this phone 2 & 1/2 years ago, and can't wait till my contract is up. It's a piece of crap. Looks nice though, but that doesn't mean anything. Can't make calls when you want - seems to esp. occur when I am most desperate (ie. calling the car mechanic, personal emergencies, etc.). I bought this phone after seeing that my friend had it, (plus the cheap $25 price), and she is having the same problems! Also, it sucks how you can accidentally turn the ringer to vibrate with the switch on the outside. Thank GOD for CNet (reason why I'm on here now) is so I can research before I buy my next cell phone. (Thanks CNet!)
Pros Light weight... thats about it.
Cons horrible antenna reception, no color screen, no extras. If you leave the phone on a lot, the screen will eventually refuse to work until the phone is turned off and on again.
Summary I ordered this phone over the internet through CINGULAR, and was VERY unhappy with it. Worst phone I've ever owned... I should've stuck with a nokia, even if they don't make a flip phone. Cinglar service is great, phone sucks.
Pros silver thin Styling
Cons Bad reception, hard to hear caller or ring tone, bad usability design, bad software
Summary Only my son's 12-year old friends think this phone is cool because its looks cool. For the adults who use it, its a stinker. Several weeks ago, I thought I had trashed it but turning it on and accidentally pushing the on button, and another at same time. I had to remove the battery *and* chip to reset it so that the screen displayed info again. (Call to Cingular tech support did not have solution to this, they were looking for me to buy another phone- yeah right!)
The reception is terrible. The volume is not loud enough, even in quiet area its hard to hear caller. The loudest ring available is not loud enough, the vibrator is not enough 'vibraty' enough either, and you can't have both at same time.
Lastly, the design of the volume control buttons which are on the outside of the case when it is closed are awful (and are pointless, since its at maximum all the time)
If the volume controls get pinched and held down for more than 1-2 seconds, the phone either vibrates or beeps like it might be ringing. Guess what happens ten times a day to me when I squat and those buttons smash against anything in my pocket? I jump because I think I'm being called.
There should be a special place in h*ll for the engineers who designed this dog.
