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.
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: 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!
Excerpt: I been using HTC Arrive for over a year now and found it to be much superior OS than Iphone and Android. I believe microsoft got it right this time with its Metro UI. it doesn't feel cluttery and simple to use.
Super-fast, amazing integration, and easy to use...a beautiful phone.

Summary: Amazing phone...I'm telling you, windows has created the best phone OS on the market, hands down. My entire online life is amazingly integrated. It's simple, super-fast and powerful. I will never own another kind of phone as long as windows stays in the market. Do yourself a favor, put down the iphone cool-aide and give this phone a try. HTC has also built one of the best physical keyboards I've ever used on a phone.
Pros: - Windows Phone OS with mango update is very slick. - 100% facebook enabled. - Slide out keyboard is amazing. - the touch screen is very responsive. - Battery life - Reception! - batt saving mode - Zune mktplace - Camera & Camcorder built in
Cons: - Google Plus App doesn't remember your login. - Limited apps, (even though many are free you have to pay for on iPhone) - 1ghz isn't as fast as it used to be but for this phone it flys - only 16GB for storage. - screen isn't as large as newer phones
FAST FAST FAST, Amazingly fast, easy to use, fits in my hand.

Summary: It is super fast, 15 to 20 seconds to load. it is responsive, you click it is there, you click back it is back you don't have to wait not even a second. Compared to Android EVO and EVO 3D it is much much faster. I switched from Android back to windows, I've been using windows mobile since the early days and could not be happier. Made the right move, by going back to windows.
Pros: Great hardware, I expect nothing less from HTC. Real metal, no chrome painted plastic nonsense. Slick pop-up hinge. Fantastic keyboard with nice, subtly rubbery island keys; even has cute little lights for caps and fn. Fast, responsive, lots of space for
Cons: Not everyone will like Windows Phone. My only other gripe is also with the OS: Text messaging does -not- automatically break up long texts into multiple, it just prevents sending a message that's too long. Not a deal breaker, by any means, and something t
