Summary: A great phone for it's age and can keep pace doing tasks with much newer devices. Cosmetically looks like a silver brick, but I kind of like that in a phone... This particular phone has button sensitivity issues, but they do work so I can't complain other than that.
Summary: this phone was purchased for a friend ,, he likes it very well and serves his needs fine..he is overseas and the phone is working fine, he likwes the cameraand touch screen, as it takes less time to do calls and the slide is easier for him than the dial numbers and letters.
Excerpt: I have been searching for a Smartphone for awhile now and the Cingular / AT@T8525 was exactly what I was looking for. It includes Microsoft Windows Mobile 5.0 with Direct Push Technology, Bluetooth® v2.0, and even Wi-Fi. You also have ActiveSync which syncs your documents, music, pictures and any other file to and from your PC to phone. With Word, Excel, and Power Point you have the ability to create documents right on your phone.
Excerpt: Really amazing phone. Picks up great service and is very fast. The Windows media player is great to use as an mp3 player. I bought a 2GB mini-SD and I have a ton of songs, ring tones, pictures, word documents, recorded notes, games, and video on my phone. The Internet is also very quick and easy to use. I am not too savvy with this stuff but it was really easy to get used to.
Excerpt: The 8525 is a wonder piece of technology. I have really enjoyed having my phone, MP3 player and PDA all in one. Over all it takes fair photos, maintains fair connection with internet, and is somewhat user friendly. The only saving grace is the Win mobile OS. Which is wonderful to get around in. However, the phone is in no way sleek. It is bulky, boxy, and heavy. So many time I wish I had something alittle more delicate.
Excerpt: The AT&T 8525 phone is a great phone. I was using a phone and a Dell Axim to manage my office on the go when this phone came out. I immediately purchased it for $199 (price match) from Cingular, now AT&T, and have loved it from day one. It is a little heavy for a phone, but it has all the applications I need. Word, Excel, AvantGo to keep up with the daily news and events, video tv, email, and text messaging.
Excerpt: THE PHONE IS VERY NICE TO HAVE. IT IS A BIT BULKY, BUT SPORTS A FULL KEYBOARD WHICH IS GOOD. THE TOUCH SCREEN IS A NICE TOUCH. THE 2 MP CAMERA IS GREAT IT TAKES CLEAR PHOTOS AND HAS A FEW MODES TO SHOOT WITH, YOU CAN ZOOM AND DO OTHER THINGS. THE PRICE I PAID WAS 2OO.00 THROUGH ATT BUT YOU MAY FIND IT ONLINE FOR AS LOW AS 180. ITS A GOOD PHONE FOR THE PRICE. THE WIFI IS AN AWESOME FEATURE ON THIS MODEL.
i love the keyboard and the fact that is is a touch screen phone

Summary: This is an excellent phone running very good and it is very easy to learn and use.. The slide-out keyboard is full QWERTY, and easy to use even though a little crowded. With a little practice you get used to it. The touch screen is very responsive but you do have to use a stylus.
