Waste of Money

  • Excerpt: This is by far the worst phone verizon has ever come out with. Its extremely slow even with the upgrade. It takes forever to send and receive text messages. The sides chip like its nothing, the whole sliding top portion comes loose and eventually falls off, the buttons are SO slow and takes a year...
  • Pros: Texting was easy with the number pad
  • Cons: Slow everything.

  • Excerpt: This phone is the biggest piece of crap I have ever spent money on! 1.  The sides chip off and it now looks terrible and the screen is scratched beyond belief. 2. Now for the second time my phone will not call anyone or text anyone yet I have perfect service.  It says CALL FAILED!!! TRY AGAIN.

  • Excerpt: I bought the this phone about six months ago and I honestly wished that I hadn't. For the first month I had no issues with the phone I loved it. It was great for me because I love having my music and phone together so i don't have to carry my ipod with me all the time.
  • Pros: great for music lovers and pictures are great quality
  • Cons: falls apart poor construction

  • Excerpt: Had phone for 30 days-had to ret because of peeling frame and screen not reponding. After the second phone screen came loose from base and finally fell off the base and tape broke. Out of luck, even though phone is warranty for a year. Verizon will not replace.

  • Excerpt: It was a good phone in the beginning playing music, taking pictures, texting, etc. I've not even had this phone for a whole year and it's freezing now. I can't text anything but yes or no. Anything longer than that everything freezes and i have to remove the battery to get back to anything.

26 August 2008
  • Excerpt: I was so excited to get this phone, but quickly learned that it wasn't worth it. Only after three days of having it, it froze the first time and never turned back on. I quickly went through FOUR phones before asking Verizon to replace it with something different.
