Super Awful phone!!

Excerpt: What a awful phone! the storage is small and after restarting my phone i cant send texts, receive texts, call, or get calls! ive had my phone for 6 months now as a starter phone and its soooo annoying. i had to delete my pictures, music, a few contacts,videos, and more. but the only good thing i can think of is that it has great reception, i was on a road trip and i was the only one who had reception.
Pros: great reception
Cons: stops texting, runs out of space fast, no games to entertain kids, back pops off easy, hard to restart, have trouble sending texts.
Summary: I really like this phone and this is the second HTC phone I have owned. I do not like the touch screens so I purchased this phone because it was an unlocked GSM phone that would run on the AT&T system. I have previously owned the HTC Dash 3G and LOVED it! However - after receiving this phone -I discovered that it would not work on the AT&T system. I switched out the SIM cards, did exhaustive searches online to find a way to get it to work -no go. VERY frustrating.
Nice features but unreliable junk, the OS crashes 1x a day

Summary: From a design standpoint it seems like a good phone but it crashes and locks up at least 1x a day forcing you to remove the battery to restart. When speaking to a phone dealer they told me they had the same issue with many clients. I would return it but we tossed the packaging.
Excerpt: I have had the Ozone for less than a year & it was great & fast when i first bought it, but when i tried to put music onto the music player, the phone would tell me there's not enough space for it, & i have a 16 GB memory card. My picture's wouldn't save to it either & i would have to delete my picture's to even receive my texts. This phone freezes when it get's a picture message & you have to restart the phone.
Pros: Fast internet, Simple keyboard
Cons: It freezes all the time, Battery life is very short, USB connector wears, causing phone not to charge properly.
Summary: Microsoft tried to imitate apple services and launched this phone. Like apple phone this phone does not have Memory card slot, you cannot share music or files using bluetooth. No front facing camera for video chat applications. But costs alot. This WM7 phone has so many restrictions and the OS does not have any option except the screen showing live widgets. I would really appreciate HD2 more reliable, affordable and flexible phone with lot of options. Buying HD7.
Summary: I heard great things about HTC, and I looked at their product line with great interest. What I liked most about the Tilt was the slide out keyboard. Very nice feature, and I prefer it over a screen-displayed keyboard. That said, what do I like about it: - Slide out keyboard - Camera quality is top notch. What don't I like about it: - You have to use the pointer stick for practically everything.
Excerpt: I've used this phone for about 14 months. I originally traded over from the "Q" because this phone supported Skype. Well, to eliminate the "hang" feature, I upgraded Windows mobile and when I did, Skype no longer supported Windows mobile.The phone goes into a frenzy at times and the USB connector has worn to a point where the phone won't charge occasionally.
Pros: Ease of turning features on and off.
Cons: USB connector wears, causing phone not to charge properly.
Excerpt: I have been with T-Mobile for several years and I know their service is better than I am getting with this phone. Dropped calls. That is it, that is the problem. The phone is a 5 other than that. The Internet is usable on the 3G network, I can connect my laptop and still not miss a call, it syncs with my Exchange server has good reception when on a call, connects my favorite Bluetooth headsets, nice keyboard layout, volume level is good, great speaker phone.
Excerpt: I think that the HTC Snap is an interesting phone for basic use. As a secondary phone it would be perfect - but it is never going to compete with the likes of the iPhone or the Nexus S. As a Windows Phone, it naturally has all the windows features - office, live etc...and all these are easily accessible. However, when using the phone I have the impression that it is not designed to be a phone - rather just a tool to boast Microsofts feature.
Pros: Easy to use keyboard and interesting number of features
