Summary: Noone has said that you MUST suscribe to motoblur before you can even use this phone so I am. Its nothing tho, just wanted all to know. Its fairly easy to use. I have had to go to the manual for a few things, but most things can be found on your own. The battery holds charge all day and then some. I dont do alot of web browsing or game playing, but am in and out of signal alot and use the phone in very weak signal locations which would drain alot of phones Ive tried.
"New life with Android 2.2 from Consumer Cellular"
17 March 2012
Pros: User friendly, inexpensive, comfortable size, voice quality, battery life, optional 3g data plan, many apps available from Android market, 3.7" multi-touch screen, wifi and bluetooth wireless connections, and available desk-top multimedia station.
Cons: The installed MotoBlur app seems more of a distraction, but might be contributing to some of the user friendly qualities without my knowledge.
Summary: I bot this Bravo in May '11. I studied smart phones first a lot (for mid class phones) This was one of the best choices. It has turned out well. You can put Android 2.2.1 on it. It can pick up WiFi and be a WiFi hotspot. Screen is big enuf to use the touch screen key pad easily when set sideways. It uses network HSPA for 3G and HSPA+ for 4G, which ATT and T-Mob use in US, and Bell and Telus use in Canada. I use it thusly in US and Cdn.

Summary: Very good phone. Stable and good call quality. Lots of options and features. Good value for a mid-level phone. Get this phone if you want a good android device but do not want to pay extra for the newer android phones out there.
