Summary: I enjoy this phone I have had it for a while now I'm going to get another phone like this phone again. The only thing that seems to be a pain in the butt is having the power button on the side. I have dropped it several times and the screen never cracked.
Summary: This is the 3rd time I've bought this same phone. It is not because the phone has not held up its because I am hard on phones and I keep going back to the Kyocera Risa phone because its so inexpensive but has the feel and look of an expensive phone.
Summary: Haven't used it too much yet, but so far I have no complaints. I'm a texter so I NEED the full qwerty keyboard. This keyboard works good. the buttons have good sizing and spacing. I sometimes forget my phone in my pocket when skateboarding, and this phone has a little weight to it.
Summary: It is a little on the chunky side and definitely kind of old school, but it is really a wonderful little device. I love that it has both a slide out keyboard (that is pretty easy to use, whether you use the pads of your fingers or your nails) as well as a touch screen QWERTY keyboard.
Lot of reviews, but here's my positive experience...

Summary: UPDATE: revising my review cause of so many negative reviews. A key to the phone working well is utilizing the 'Battery' app that comes on the phone. If you get the phone and open the app it will bring up all the apps that are open.
Summary: People kept telling me that this was an "entry" level phone and that I should go for something more "high tech", and they were wrong. There's nothing wrong with this phone, there's nothing slow about it, and I have yet to see anything that the pundits told me about this phone.
