Summary: Okay, so i heard so many bad things about this phone before i bought it that i didnt even look at this phone when i was shopping. I accidently glanced at the specs thinking they are for a samsung phone and was very excited. It has everything that you can ask for in an iphone or any other phone.
1. Phone is of good quality. The material is sturdy and nothing is wrong with it.
2. The features work fine, no sms problem, no slags, nothing. it doens't slag any more/less than my past iphone, 8125, tilt...THEY ALL HAVE QUIRKS!! (My iphone would randomly shut off sometimes or would freeze and would have to wait 16 minutes to reboot, 8125 and fuze would freeze when i would open the keyboard sometimes..etc.)
3. The phone will frustrate you until you tweak it to your needs. I increased sensitivity in the touch screen(it became almost as sensitive as the iphone). I deleted some unneccessary programs (made it faster). I added some iphone touches (made it cooler).
Seriously, its 99 bucks...100 cheaper than iphone and 200 cheaper than fuze. it's just as good and the size is smaller than the fuze or iphone so its more compact.
The pros outweigh the cons. yes its slower at times, yes the screen is tiny bit smaller. I can use it very easily (im a guy with no nails)...practice makes perfect, and its memory is expandable to 32 gb (8gb card is 12 bucks on amazon. 40 for 16 gb). The phone is a well built mobile phone for its smaller size, expandable memory..etc.
At&t and just about any other professional cell phone carrier is so negative about this phone but as an experience user and a previous cingular employee..im telling you. this phone is amazing. I wouldn't mind having a fuze or an iphone but they are way tooo expensive.
