Summary: This is a great phone! I like that it has wifi and that its compact and cute. The only downside is that my batter doesnt really last and I am constantly charging it or worried that it might die on me while im out. Im looking into getting the extended battery because of that alone but other than that this phone works really well!
Summary: I bought the motorola charm that in spite of being a smartphone of 2010, is currently very functional at a lower price. You have almost all frequencies so that it can be used with different mobile companies. The only bad thing is that your OS is 2.1 and can not upgrade to a more advanced, but is a durable phone and stronger than many that are on the market today on the $ 200.00.
Summary: How much do I enjoy this phone? I lost one the other night while drunk. I ordered this exact same one. Why? Cause it's easy-to-use. I'm not a huge fan of phones getting bigger and bigger, with screens the size of a wallet. I loved this phone because of its texting capabilities. The phone sucks when it comes to memory. The camera sucks. It freezes here and there, but I like it since it's functional and the phone has personality.
Excerpt: It's a really good phone but the camera is terrible!!! The phone memory is quite low so learn to send all your pictures to the SIM card, Hotmail worked for me for 4 months only. It's a great emergency phone or starter cell. Def!!!
Summary: I have had this phone for almost two years now (which is longer than I have stayed with any one phone ever). I purchased it from T-mobile directly, not from Amazon so I can't say anything about this seller. I have had a love/hate relationship with this phone. Thought it was a lemon when I first purchased it. I actually had it replaced twice within the first three months.
Summary: This Charm was a gift and replaced a regular mobile phone and first smartphone purchase to use for texting and calls. The keyboard was the desired feature and it is more than adequate for this purpose. I also bought the extra battery with more life and this combination works well. The wi-fi setup was confusing at first, but I figured it out after while. Turning off the wi-fi saves battery life and the performance is pretty good for a Android 2.1 phone.
i think it's worth it. for the price it was worth, why not.

Summary: i bought this product wanting to gradually ease into the whole new world of smart phones. it was extremely affordable and came with a lot of cool features. i love that it's compact and super thin. it did not take very long to get used to all the apps and features that the phone has to offer. the only redundancy that the phone carries is that besides the screen being a touch screen, there is a track pad on the back. but there is an option where you can turn it off.
Pros: -the charm is not a flashy hipster phone (ahem, iphone), its core focus is on its functionality, which is does great at -QWERTY keyboard, makes texting/emailing very convenient -easy to use, touch + keyboard -stock email app works great for me
Cons: -very poor battery life (4-5hrs, if i am busy, can idle for 8-12hrs only) -poor camera resolution -poor screen display -over-heats during prolonged phone calls (1hr+) and my cheekbones start sweating profusely
