Excerpt: I received this phone some time in early January of 2012. It was my first smart phone and I instantly fell in love with it. Although I only had it a short while, it never gave me any problems and was always responsive. The 3G was never sub-par.
Pros: Slide-out QWERTY keyboard, Nice speaker (very clean and crisp), Can play music and games while in call w/o other person hearing them (I thought that was cool).
