Summary: IT'S A HORRIBLE PHONE, for one reason. the internal components are bad. this phone will break on you in about 6 months. I thought that i could beat the odds, and buy a decent phone but it just craped out one day in the middle of use.... its a piece of s***...
Summary: If I knew what this phone is, I would not have dared purchase it! I read the reviews before but gave it the benefit of doubt because of a previous HTC that I had used for one year which was a really nice phone.
Summary: This phone is pretty good for someone who wants a feature phone but not smart phone. However, I have had problems with this phone since the day I got it with it shutting off on me randomly at least once a day. The only way I could get it turn on was to pull the battery and then turn it on....
Summary: The htc freestyle is a very attractive and affordable phone but freezes and shuts off out of no where and the battery must be removed to restart it... The music player brings the phone to its knees. Good for texting but so is any other phone with a qwerty keyboard
Excerpt: I've had this phone for about 9 months and I LOVED it at first, it was fast, responsive, and nice looking. But then after about 3-4 months of everyday use, it became slower and slower, unresponsive, and SUPER HARD to type/text on.
Pros: Nice Layout
Cons: REALLY hard to type on, Sends/recieves messages really slowly, Touchscreen is unresponsive and SLOW!
Good luck, I don't recommend this phone to my worst enemy.

Excerpt: I got this phone refurbished. It kept restarting itself, freezing, lagging like hell, battery drainage. Had to take out the battery several times a day to get it to unfreeze and reboot the phone. Went to the ATT store and switched it for a NEW phone.
Pros: Metal Build, Good quality picture.
Cons: From the internal system, to the touch sense it uses., Pretty much everything
Excerpt: I had a 1 yr old Samsung phone that had water damage last March and I replaced it with a newer model of the same phone. Well, it wasn't the same phone (my chin kept disconnecting calls), so I returned it within 30 days and after reading several reviews, I cautiously bought the Freestyle.
Pros: Sleek styling, smaller than iPhone, Texting is conversation style
