Summary: As a long time Nokia and Wifi Calling/UMA user, I am very disappointed in the C7 Astound. Now, granted, some of my issues seem to be inherent in most touch screen smart phones. And I do come from almost a decade of using non-touch screen Nokia Communicators and a few that were not Communicators. Some history for comparison: In May of 2011 I bought an Android TMO MyTouch 3G.
Summary: The reception on this phone is much better than my previous Samsung. But two weeks after getting it, there is a layer of dust under the glass. I'm not real happy with that. Also, the teeny tiny keyboard means going back and correcting texts. I have small fingers and still have problems.
Summary: I bought this phone four months ago. Pros: It looks good.Is rugged. I have dropped it couple of times,accidentaly and still it did not have any scratches or blemishes. The touchscreen interface is good. Good Battery life. Call quality is good. Applications are fast. Games are fast and dont get stuck like they do on my other Nokia 5530. Web Browser interface is good. The zoom in zoom out is just like iphones.
Excerpt: I've had this Phone for 4 months and I can't wait to get rid of it. Firstly, the touch response is very frustrating. If you own an Apple product, you can tell the difference.

Summary: The Nokia C7 is a nice Phone........But. I have only had the phone a couple of days, I charged it up fully when I got it. But only after a few hours it completely freeze on me (whilst charging) and I could not do anything at all and then it turned itself off. This problem keeps happening. Once every so often might not have been a problem, but this was happening at least twelve times a day.
Summary: I got this phone on contract from orange after my last nokia had major problems and had to repeatedly send back. The operater told me that this phone was a contender to the iphone but to be honest i had my doubts and even though i took the phone out with them i have noticed that the phone does lack some essential elements.
