Unreliable over time

Summary: We are on our third replacement, Wifi stopped working on one, user data lost on another and if they get hot on a long car trip will just stop working, plus Dell do not sell these anymore in the US
Summary: Everything works, except for the apps! In the marketplace once I select the "Apps" category the screen is black except for the words "Applications" written above. I can't download any applications. I can't play videos from youtube either. Other than that, the other elements of the phone (i.e email, messaging, etc.) work fine. The main thing is, I ordered this item from Amazon as "new" and I received it as used. The box was taped shut, having been previously open.
Worst phone...only good for looks...poor in performance...

Summary: This phone looks great and the screen resolution is very sharp and crisp...This phone has lot of drawbacks....this phone will get turned off for 5 mins when u plugin to power outlet i dont know y is this happening ...call quality is very poor...camera is not good is is very slow while taking pictures..windows marketplace sucks.....
Summary: The main difficult is to find the unlock button, is too tiny and hard to press. To call a contact must follow 5 steps, you cannot use the keyboard as shotcut. The OS WP7 have not settings as WM6.5, you cannot personalize like we use to do with WM6.5 The battery life is so very poor, I´m a moderate talker and I cannot reach 8 or 9 PM every day The only pro is the screen resolution and W7 environment to work
Flunking grade for power management, otherwise good

Summary: - I am both delighted and disappointed with Dell Venue Pro. Windows Phone is the operating system of my choice primarily due to its productivity. Venue Pro is very much businesslike, precisely the type of mobile phone I want. However, the terrible power management makes it virtually unbearable to me.
Summary: I bought this phone a few months ago!! At first I was impressed by its beauty, elegance and uniqueness!! It says "Unlocked" in the sense that it supports any sim card no matter what the operator is..., that's true. You can make phone calls, text, wifi and the world is still happy!! Windows Phone 7.5 Mango experience is sublime and this huge phone makes it extreme..., but when you try configure a data plan the wicked secret arises!!
Summary: This phone is really nice if you have t-mobile. If you don't then the term "unlocked" is deceptive. I ordered this phone for my husband for christmas. Our carrier is At&t. We put in att's sim card and the phone kept trying to access the t-mobile network. We tried for three days to get a real unlock code, even contacting dell directly. Nothing worked. We were told by dell that the phone is rooted to t-mobile. Making it impossible to use another network.
Summary: Got my dell Venue pro within 2days. This Dell Venue Pro is fast and has a beautiful screen. It does not have the basic features such as. Copy and paste. It does not have default settings Profile for normal, vibrate, and silent. You have to manually go in and adjust. The browser is does not have folders to organize your favorite website links. The list goes on. Anyways, I am going back to my Black Berry Bold 9780. Waste of my time. F*cking idiots.
