"Yep, owned em all"4.5 starson 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.
