Conclusion: The AT&T Quickfire misses its calling as a music phone by skipping a standard headphone jack and not including an adapter in the box. Still, it's an effective Sidekick clone for the AT&T set with a comfy keyboard, built-in Web browsing, IM, and e-mail capabilities.
Pros: Comfortable QWERTY keyboard. Roomy LCD. Includes Web browser, IM, and e-mail clients. Solid multitasker.
Cons: Finicky touch screen. Weak reception. Lacks a standard 3.5mm headphone jack—and there's no adapter or earbud set in the box.
