Summary I really love this phone. It comes in great colors. I have the red one. I see a lot of negative reviews on here and I have to say that I haven't had any issues with this phone. I guess I got lucky because I'm very pleased with the phone. I also bought the clear plastic covering to protect the phone especially the display. It helps if you purchase the optional case cover. It will protect the display from cracking! I haven't had any of the issues with powering off or with the keys on the keyboard. I pretty much stick to my digital camera when it comes to pictures because the pictures on this phone doesn't come out too good. If you're a huge texter like me then you will enjoy this phone. I hardly talk on it because I rather text. It has a cool interface and it comes with with some nifty tools. I especially like the tip calculator. That has come in handy on several occasions while eating out! It's not a perfect phone, but it was just what I needed. Alltel also offers prepaid on it for those who don't want to sign a two year contract.
Pros The design and QWERTY keyboard
Cons The bugs and flaws
Summary I was really excited when I got this phone, but from day one I had problems. It would connect to other phones via bluetooth, however was not capable of accepting ANY kind of files. When trying to type on the little keyboard, things were okay if I had the sound on, but if I had it in vibrate mode the phone froze up so bad it took me MINUTES to type short messages because the buttons wouldn't work. It also had terrible reception. I took it back the next day for a simple exchange, because I really did love the setup, and this new phone is almost as bad. The keyboard hangs up terribly, and even when it is fully charged, the phone shuts itself off. It just suddenly goes black, and it does this 4 or 5 times a day. Don't buy this phone until they've worked the kinks out.
"Yep, owned em all"on by narn3049
Pros NICE KEYBOARD AND CAMERA
Cons Has a flimsy port where the charger goes.
Summary I've had the chance to own the phone on ALL the carriers it was available for. Which pretty much means it a thorough test from me, and at all summed up I got a 4.0 in ratings.
ALLTEL VERSION: SCOOP
The phone was purchased in a blue color. I owned it for a short time before it and FELL got dunked. It was dried but the mic never worked again, so I paid tp get a new one, or refurb, which worked ok and then came to the issue of the port breaking.
I'd say the first phone was the best phone out of the Alltel bunch. I never experienced problems with it, (MORE WITH ME BECAUSE I GOT IT WET. LOL) but it never really had any issues,
SPRINT VERSION: RUMOR
The blue rumor was an excellent phone, and probably the best phone that I've owned on sprint's network. Probably NOTHING even close. The Rant was probably the worst qwerty phone on sprint I ever came to recognize. Constant dropped calls on that phone and the phone would always freeze, and overheat and power off and the battery was the most suckish thing ever. But thats a different review. This phone was dropped repeatedly and had tons of good features that weren't available on the scoop. The ending of this phone was it dropping and the top breaking from the bottom. It had a lot of wear on it.
USCELLULAR VERSION: WHITE RUMOR
The phone was ok. I got it from a family member with a broken charger port, but was able to charge it by holding pins down in right way. it worked good and had good features as well. It seems the owner dropped the phone a lot as it was chipped, dented and all of the keys were worn. This phone has a couple issues, but I'd get it if I could.
