Summary: good phone nice and small not like the other smart phones that are really big and bulky. i like this phone because it can fit in my pocket and i am not afraid to sit down for in fear of cracking the screen
Summary: I hooked this up to Page Plus, which runs on the Verizon network. This was the lowest price point I could get with the provider for data/web access. It works better than expected. It definitely is a downgrade from my Samsung Galaxy II but I'm not an intensive mobile web user and don't need to be checking in or posting status updates on FB constantly. That being said, the screen is on the smaller side, the touchscreen feels clunky and not as refined.
Pros: fits in my pocket, good for quick web access
Cons: touchscreen is a little clunky compared to smarter smart phones, not able to transfer contacts from SD card onto phone, not able to move apps to SD card to free up limited phone storage capacity, screen is not as vibrant as higher end phones
Summary: Verizon requires all "Advanced" phone to have a data plan. You can technically get a Prepaid data plan but that's still $75 a month with voice + data. I don't know of a way around here. Other mobile carrier does not require this.
Decent value if you have to purchase a phone without a contract renewal!

Summary: I purchased this phone, due to the price. My Droid died, I needed a replacement and was not due for an upgrade. After having my second Android phone, I've discovered that Android itself has some corks. The phone is basically easy to use, I like the size. (A little smaller than my old Droid) I would recommend getting a protective cover or glove for it.
Summary: I bought this phone straight from verizonwireless. I thought that this phone would be better than my last smart phone. But after having it for a year I'm ready to get rid of it. Screen does not always recognize its being touched. Can't get it to answer when someone is calling. Or it will freeze for a minute and it won't do anything. Sometimes can't get games to load or they load but slowly.
