"New life with Android 2.2 from Consumer Cellular"4.5 starson by djk1940
Pros: User friendly, inexpensive, comfortable size, voice quality, battery life, optional 3g data plan, many apps available from Android market, 3.7" multi-touch screen, wifi and bluetooth wireless connections, and available desk-top multimedia station.
Cons: The installed MotoBlur app seems more of a distraction, but might be contributing to some of the user friendly qualities without my knowledge.
Summary: This phone has been upgraded to Android 2.2 and is now available from Consumer Cellular, which uses the ATT network. No data plan is required with this provider, but limited plans are available at much lower prices than from other providers.
With an increasing number of free wifi hotspots available, both my wife and I have stopped carrying our android tablets in addition to our cell phones, and now only carry this phone. We find the "tablet" uses of the phone to be much easier than our more expensive tablets, even though both had larger screens and one had a Honeycomb operating system. When connected to either 3g or wifi, connections are fast and responsive.
I'm sure there are better smart phones on the market. But if you are a light user of both cell phones and mobile Internet connections, the Motorola Bravo when combined with Consumer Cellular, represents a value that no other carrier/smart phone combination even comes close.
