Summary: Unfortunately, the mobile starts to go bust once you install a small number of apps. You need to continuosly clear the cache, especially if you are an avid FB user (which ironically HTC tries to portray the mobile suitable for)
Summary: Bought as a gift on the recommendation from a friend. Initial thoughts were positive but then we realised that the signal drops out with alarming regularity. Most calls are now interrupted with two or three complete losses of signal. It is really awful. Having made this known to the seller I thought I might get a repair or a replacement but having acknowledged my initial email they then chose to ignore me. Very poor customer service. Not recommended.
Summary: I decided to buy this phone as it is reasonably priced and reliable - I had had enough with these fancy smartphones. This phone is anything but reliable. The low internal memory (design flaw) means that you are restricted from using apps and viewing photos until space is cleared. The actual software uses up most of the memory and despite having an sd card, you can only put certain things on it. It has reached the stage where I can no longer view texts.
Summary: Having been a Blackberry user since 2005 but being very disappointed by their more recent efforts, I bought an HTC Cha Cha sim-free to accept my existing O2 sim card. The keyboard appealed to me as I have never really been a fan of touch screen phones. While I really like the design of this phone, in use I find it fiddly and unreliable.
Summary: The HTC ChaCha is not a bad phone. The touch screen and the QWERTY keyboard make it excellent for finding your way around the phone and sending text messages and emails. The only (and biggest) snag is that you are very limited to the the installation storage that you have. I know this is something that was an issue with earlier Android handsets, however I would have expected HTC to have overcome this problem.
great phone but dont expect to be able to use all the apps you want

Summary: advertised as 512mb ram is as about as misleading as it gets ... after the factory loaded apps you will have around 130mb left, and none of these can be moved to sd memory ... after installing 5 to 10 apps you wont be able to load any more as they have to reside in ram ... there are pages and pages of people complaining about this on forums so why no tech reviews mention it is beyond me ...
