Excerpt: I have had this phone for almost a year and I have gone through four of them! The touch screen was very inconsistent and unreliable on the first two models, with one of those models stopping to power up. The third model would automatically turn off on me in the middle of my phone calls! I am on the fourth model and this is actually responding very well! Despite all of those problems, I do enjoy having a touch-screen phone that is callibrated and responds to my touch!
Excerpt: I got this with a two year contract with Verizon and I CAN'T WAIT UNTIL IT'S OVER! When I try to talk on the phone, everyone sounds like a robot unless it's silent in the background on both ends. The texting seems to run slower then my fingers go so the letters are usually jumbled. The only thing good about this phone is battery, reception and music player. The battery life will usually last 4-7 days for me, and I text A TON.
Summary: This is pretty much an old style cell phone with a makeshift touch screen fashioned on top of it. Things I liked: -Layout of the physical buttons. Everything felt in place and solid. -How when you hold the phone up to your ear, the screen turns off. -I dropped it many times and swam with in in the pool for about an hour. It still works today. -It takes decent photos in good light. Things I disliked: -Touch screen is pretty much a joke.
What the phone is, and how 3 turned out when all bought at once.

Summary: Writing this review because most of the reviews I see either love or hate the phone. Since me, my mom, and little sister all got this phone I thought people on here would find it interesting to see how all these phones turned out. We got them in October of 2010 so here's how they turned out: My little sister who had broken a screen on a phone previous (and got a replacement) broke this one in about 4 months. Definitely not a good one for young kids.
Excerpt: so, it started that i loved the phone, it was amazing, until about a week or so after i got, it randomly truend off, and i couldnt turn it back on! well alright.. maybe that was messed up, so i took it in and they gave me another one, well this one was pretty good.. until about a month after i had it, the screen started to freeze up, so i took it again, and they gave me another, it happend again, and they hgave me another... i had 5 diffrent fones in less then a year!
Pros: music player
Cons: texting, freezes u p all the time, turns off randomly, keyboard is sooo small
Excerpt: At first it was decent, because it was my first touchscreen phone, and I hadn't seen anything else before. But after having it for over a year, and seeing other devices, I can't stand it anymore. EVERY MORNING it freezes when the alarm goes off, and sometimes I even have to take out the battery. It's a huge pain to text on, sometimes I get so frustrated with it that I just delete everything and stop trying. Web browser is simply the worst I have ever used.
Pros: Multimedia features, 3.5 mm headphone jack, 3G (only EVDO Rev 0), Some apps available, VERIZON!
Cons: Resistive touchscreen, Glitchy interface with ugly UI, Bad camera, Cheap build quality, AWFUL keyboard
Summary: I decided to buy this phone because of the large & brightly colored display and the general sleekness of the device. I am picky when it comes to the appearance because if you aren't in love with it, you're stuck with a phone you dislike for the duration of your contract. Loved the large screen! the brilliant colors and themes of the phone were very cute, and it had great sound quality. However, I owned this phone for less than a week.
Excerpt: When I first got it, it was a great phone. After dropping it a few times it turns off randomly and just started to drop every call i got. The only problem I hhad with it since day 1 is i can hear everyone perfectly but nobody can hear me unless i yell.
