don't waste your money there are better phones out there
5 January 2014
Summary: Thought this was going to be a good little phone from the reviews that was read. Unfortunately after receiving the phone we found out different. The first problem was the external speaker wouldn't work unless you slid the keyboard up a couple of times. The second problem was the Wi-Fi wouldn't work. Then the battery wouldn't hold a charge more than 3 or 4 hours.
Summary: I have been looking for some time on Ebay and the internet as a whole for a smartphone with a slider keyboard with a number row.I wanted the number row to use for dialing as I have a minor tremor which makes it difficult to use touch screen dialer (and I didn't want a physical dial pad on the outside of the phone for phantom calls which I had with a previous phone.
It's a good phone. I recommend it for people who want good battery life.

Summary: I like the htc windows 7 phone. It synched automatically with my hotmail contacts. The battery lasts a couple of days--unless I use it a ton. Once in awhile the wifi doesn't connect like it should, so I have to reboot it. That's not a big deal. Voice texting is awesome. I haven't typed a text message in weeks! All of the voice activation features are built in.
Summary: This is a great phone! And I know I said Windows Phone has its flaws but I have no regrets so far in investing in a WP device. The variety of apps are growing tremendously by the day. and I am very satisfied. Also 16GB of onboard storage should be more than enough for most people, but I like having the option.
Pros: Amazing call quality(at least where I live) Great QWERTY keyboard, good screen(AMOLED is nice but you really aren't going to notice this phone doesn't have it unless you put it side by side to an AMOLED), sturdy, great U.S. Cellular option!
Cons: Battery life could be better but you can easily get a days use out of it, Some minor flaws in Windows Phone ( Wont get into it here, just look em' up), and no expandable memory.
Summary: Love this phone the big screen makes everything better fast and smooth all day. this is one of the best windows phone out there but there are two little problem with it like the camera which is kind of unbalance between backgrounds and the battery could be better.
Summary: I WP7 to be the best cell phone operating system. I used Android and I phone, and WP7 bests them. That is not to say it has no short coming. I upgraded to HD7 from HTC HD2. Win Mobile 6.5 which is the operating system in HD2, is clunky and most developers stopped developing for it. But it allowed one to tether a notebook PC. HD7 does not allow it! I gathered that it is a function that was disabled by T-mobile, and is not organic to wp7.
