I love chocolate, but hated the phone

  • Excerpt: The Chocolate is the only phone that I have ever actually taken home, used only a couple of days and the returned it to the store. I tried as hard as I could to like it, but it was a stubborn phone. Every soft touch would set off the mp3 player. It was extremely sensitive to touch and I hated the slide cover. The RAZR or en-V are better.

Too small for those who text alot!

  • Excerpt: This phone is not designed for the every day texter! The letters are too small. The over all appearance is great but the lighted touch buttons around the dial are a bit confusing. They tend to turn on if you touch your cheek to them while in a conversation. Muting your caller or trying to search for contacts, etc.. while you are talking. Camera takes good pictures. However the view screen is tiny and settings are slightly confusing. Graphics are also very tiny.

hate this phone

  • Excerpt: I hate the chocolate phone and was SO glad to get rid of it.  I knew lots of people who liked it but I thought it was really hard to text on and if you held your phone with your shoulder like I did your face would bump the buttons on the front when talking.  It was really annoying.  I didn't use this phone for much.  I occasionally texted,  and I talked on it.  I never used the music features so I don't know how they functioned.

  • Excerpt: This is a really bad phone, and no one should buy it. I've already had my phone replaced 3 times in under a year for different reasons each time. It's very annoying, and has limited functions.
  • Pros: looks cool
  • Cons: pretty much everything

  • Excerpt: This phone is the worst phone I have ever seen Verizon come out with.  I would not recommend any one get this piece of junk. I have had so many problems with this phone.  I would lose calls for no reason (even when i had full bars).  I would also not even get calls and later I would talk to someone and they would tell me they have been calling me all day.  My text messages would not send and I would get a text from someone a couple hours after they have sent it.
  • Pros: NOTHING
  • Cons: EVERYTHING

  • Excerpt: I bought the new chocolate when it first came out.  I had so many problems with this phone I can't even count them on all of my fingers.  The screen would freeze, the middle section would not scroll, the middle button would not press, etc.  I have gotten it replaced 1 time and have went into the store numerous times to speak with technical support about my issues.  I have insurance on the phone, and was offered to get a replacement, but I would have to pay $50.
  • Pros: NONE. The only pro about this is that its a verizon phone and I can speak with family and friends with IN calling.
  • Cons: EVERYTHING... DO NOT GET THIS PHONE
