Summary: Yes I am glad I got it. I got it refurbished from Place_to_buy. came quickly, worked right away. they loaded android 4.0 in it. I can run most new applications! It is tough, seldom freezes, very reliable. good and bad listed below. had 1.5 years, still reliable! Poor battery life.
Summary: As of yet can not be upgraded to the latest android operating system. Only uses latest gingerbread OS. Which is okay for my use. Since it is not the latest OS and unlocked, you have to go to carrier website, in my case AT&T, to get the latest MMS settings to be able to receive text pictures.
Summary: Although this phone is older and only comes with the Android 2.3 Gingerbread OS, it still works great. Bars are usually full, so no struggling to get a signal and screens transition quite smoothly. The phone does tend to heat up when under heavy workload and rarely ever freezes when under pressure.
Summary: Good phone, great camera, fast, and great price. Be aware, when upgrading ROMs that this only has an old kernel available right now, and newer ROMs won't have access to certain benefits of the old ROMs. There is a new kernel in development right now, but it's a very slow process.
