Summary: I bought this product because i wanted a windows phone for my sprint service and this is the only one. the os is great but the doesnt have the most common things, front camera, landscape mode for some apps, and alot of app.
Summary: This my second purchase of an HTC Arrive. The first one, bought as an early adaption, from my carrier. The App Store at the time seemed pretty dismal, but, the handset's build quality and performance were stellar. The tilt screen keyboard remain stand outs with the keyboard still one of the best out there.
Excellent Windows phone that is very user friendly!!!

Summary: Great Windows phone and easy to type on. I had mine about 8 months before it got wet and the screen couldn't be saved. My choice was to go back with the best phone there is for Sprint so I got another one.
Summary: I love my htc arrive more than any other phone, even my htc evo 4g that is rooted and unlocked on the sprint network. the only problem is the seller i purchased my replacement arrive from sold me a stolen fu**in phone. it's a usles brick to me.
Summary: The Arrive is a great phone, i got it because i wanted to try out something besides Android and iOS. WP 7.5 is easy to use with a very different style. The phone takes good pictures and has a great display. I have found 1 drawback after 2 months of having it, app developers do not make apps for WP 7.5 like they do on both other platforms so you can't play popular games or games with your friends like bike race this is why I only gave it 4 stars.
Awesome product, Great battery life, Super easy to use.

Summary: This is the BEST phone i have ever used, with the battery life of an old analog phone. 1 Charge lasts minimum 10 hours. Getting more apps every day, many apps i use daily are here. I have used Nexus S 4G, HTC EVO 4G, iPhone 3GS, and many before then including some old Windows Mobile.
Summary: I can't stand Microsoft, but this phone is brilliant. It's fast, easy to navigate, and really streamlines the things you use most often in a phone. The good: - Contacting people, organizing groups, and social networking is a breeze. Windows Live makes synchronizing contacts and schedules with your PC effortless.
Very fast, but the marketplace needs more developers.

Summary: I purchased this phone just to try out Windows take on a smartphone. Very fast and an amazing keyboard, but the down side is the lack of apps in the Windows marketplace. Coming from using an android with a giant marketplace the Windows marketplace is a huge difference. I say save yourself some money and get an Android phone. Unless you want to spend more for a fast phone with only a fraction of the apps.
Summary: This phone is so simple and perfect if you are addicted to social networking! The screen is crystal clear and always runs at a smooth speed. Camera is great as well (5mp) Touch screen is really responsive and the slideout keyboard is really amazing but the touchscreen keyboard is easier to use! Battery life is great unless you surf the internet or web all day. Overall, I'm an Android fan but Windows phone really put itself on the map with this one! Great phone! Get it!
