Summary: The phone is capable of listening to music and has music controls on the front, is perfect for screwing Verizon which is always a plus, and you can't go wrong with a flip phone. my niece absolutely loves this phone. I fully recommend this phone for anyone who wants to entertain their kids, nephews or in my case, niece.
It's the best there is. only because they don't carry any better.

Excerpt: Number pad is good. Feels good and is laid out well. battery sucked, but extended capacity battery lives long. same VZW GUI, which i don't like. But it has Motorola intelligent texting. camera needs auto focus and flash. SPeaker is nice and loud. And I've taken hundreds of underwater pics in the pool.
Excerpt: Good for moderately rough use. Has a nice rubberized grip around the edge. Tip: an SD card is optional; but if you do add an SD card it will use a lot of battery power. Tip: before, during, and especially after locking the battery cover, the cover must be pressed down all around the edges to get the gasket to seal. Tip: download the app to backup your contacts online.
Pros: Rugged., Water resistant., Rubber grip prevents slipping from hand.
Cons: Optional SD card drains battery., Interface can be very slow at times.
Excerpt: I purchased this phone in May 2010. I acquired the extra capacity battery at the start because of all of the reviews referencing poor battery life. After about a week the battery life did drop drastically. I'm a systems engineer and I decided to investigate why. I found that there was a software function that was not terminating and was increasing the battery drain by a large amount.
Excerpt: This phone is pretty good, but a few problems. The battery cover doesn't close all the way, which wasn't an issue for me because I bought the extended battery which comes with a different battery case. I've only used the original battery once, and it is true that this battery doesn't hold a charge long, but with the extended battery I bought, the phone can last almost 48 hours. This might not seem very long, but I use my phone for texting constantly nonstop every day.
Pros: Water Resistant,, Extended battery has decent battery life,, Great Bluetooth capabilities,, Easy to use.
Cons: NOT waterproof as they claim,, Original battery cover is not waterproof or even water resistant,, Extended battery is a bit bulky,, Micro SD card is difficult to get out without taking the battery out.
