Excerpt: This is a pretty decent phone. The keyboard is nice to have. Could have been better without the small round pop up type pads but, hey, it's better than an on-screen keyboard to me. Slider and landscape feature are nice. Pretty easy to navigate and I appreciate the revision A they upgraded it to. Email and messaging are easy to use. IE is nice to have. Just a nice little phone that works well as both a phone and a pda and a internet source on the go. Not many...
Excerpt: I previously owned the MotoQ, which I loved, but accidently drowned. Did you know cell phones don't swim?? Who knew! Anyway, this phone was a "free" upgrade for me. I have had no problems with it. Love the querty keyboard (was used to it) and I especially like the fact that this phone (with the sliding keyboard) is more compact than the MotoQ. Reception is great, looks great, sounds great! Yeah, a touch screen would be nice, but you can't have it all.
Excerpt: I waited 6mo for this phone to hit the market and was the first to buy one at the verizon store near my home. Its the worse phone I've ever owned. While it has some features I really like... It fails bc the phone locks up almost every day. If its not the Qwery keyboard its the whole phone. Just locks up without warning or for any apparent reason. I've been to numerous verizon stores and they fixed a few glitches but no one has overcome the lock up issue. Its been...
Excerpt: I had the phone for about three months and the problem I kept running into is that the phone actutally came apart. The only thing connecting the keyboard with the rest of the phone was a ribbon. I had someone I know fix the phone by taking it apart. It happened 2 more times after that. I decided to get a blackberry instead. The windows mobile 6 os worked absolutely fine and the internet browsing was fine. Just the structure of the phone could've been better.
Excerpt: I got this phone for 99.99, who can beat that? Everything works great. This is my first PDA cell phone, however I am a software devloper for PDA devices, so it was easy enough to understand. The reception I get is amazing, my previous phone, from the same carrier, would not get a signal in the basement I work in, this phone I get enough signal that I can even surf the web! For 99.99 you can't beat this thing!
Excerpt: Pros: I love the keyboard and the PDA capabilities. Also, we found a way to get MS Word onto the phone so that i can make documents and not just review them. That's fun. I've only owned for 3 days, which brings me to my negatives... Cons: My battery is dead for the fourth time and three days. I don't even use the phone that much AT ALL.
Excerpt: Good device overall, with the following observations. Pros: Nice integration of phone and PDA. Light and small for its functionality. Cons: The slide out drawer does not seat firmly in the closed postion givng the phone a loose and flimsy feel when being used in phone mode. The talk time is far shorter than advertised. I have yet to get more than 3 hours. Surpised there is no voice dialing (as distinguished from voice speed dial and short cuts, which it does have).
Excerpt: I have had them all. My company pays for my phones so I get to try them all out and return them at no cost to me. So, I have had or tried the Samsung i700, i730, Treo 700w and wx, Motorola Q, Q9m, XV6800 and now the SMT5800. I am a regional sales director for a major medical company and getting and replying to emails is paramount. For the size, battery life, signal quality and ease of use I LOVE the SMT 5800!!
