Summary: Initially I had a old Nokia brick that I had for years that finally died. I only have an annual pay as you go account and did not need all the bells and whistles you have on the newer androids and iphones. This phone does the job nicely and is overkill for me. :) I like it a lot. Great value. It was advertised as an ATT - Tmobile phone. Not the case however, I had to pay $9.99 to have it unlocked to accept my T-Mobile simm. Not a big deal.
Summary: The phone worked correctly,and it arrived on time. My only difficulty was dealing was my unfamiliarity with the phone itself. I used this phone for two weeks in Italy, and received a call 20 feet underground, while touring Etruscan necropolis.
Summary: Great value for the money, however there are a few significant drawbacks(1) not enough memory, (2) not enough apps, (3) the IT policy on the phone is nearly impossible to get rid of ... causing annoyances such as the requirement to change password almost on a weekly basis, and not letting some programs (eg Opera web browser) to run outside wifi on G3/G4 network.
Summary: I purchased my unlocked 8820 a little over a year ago. The one I have is labeled for T-Mobile and since I am a T-Mobile customer that works out fine. Overall the phone is one of the best I have ever had. It is durable enough that even dropping it has not seemed to have damaged it in the least. I might add that I dropped it twice and it fell approximately 5 feet to the lightly carpeted floor.
Summary: This phone can be purchased for as little as $70 on e-bay. It is not a fancy android or I-phone, however, you can access the internet through Wi-Fi or a data plan. It can be used to access emails either through your work server or through a web based email like Gmail, yahoo, etc. by using Wi-Fi. The phone has many helpful features like a calenar and reminders, voice dial, media, etc.
