Summary: I had this and I absolutely loved it. Right up until I didn't, then I absolutely hated it. This thing was like a mini-computer you could take calls and texts on. I would store all of my clients' information in this thing. I could look at and see (for example) that on Monday at 7, I had client X who had a terrier mix with socialization issues.
Excerpt: Beware of this model. I renewed my 2 yr contract and upgraded my phone to the 8520 - so I thought it was an upgrade. My first one in Feb, 2010 began turning off when ever it wanted after one month: in the middle of a call, in the middle of a text or an email. It never got wet or was dropped and I kept it in a hard case made by BodyGlove. Verizon sent a replacement (refurbished) and the same thing happened to the second, third and fourth phone over the next three...
"NO GPS! Can't use Google Maps, Foursquare, Flixster"
25 June 2011
Pros: It doesn't blow my head off when I'm making a call.
Cons: No GPS which means you can't use: Flixster, FourSquare, Google Maps, etc. The sound quality on this phone is HORRIBLE! That means the speaker phone and the small ear speaker. It is actually painful to talk try and have a conversation on this phone. LO
Cons: Had to replace it after 5 months because the track pad kept freezing, 5 months later the "new" phone started doing the same thing! The camera sucks on this phone as well, very blotchy looking pics :(
