Excerpt: The nokia surge is a decent smartphone. The phone call quality is low and I have had some static issues since switching to this phone. I like this smartphone better than my previous because of the video option. You can watch videos on youtube or take videos with the built in camera.
Excerpt: So I've been using the Nokia Surge from many months and its the best cell phone I have ever used. The screen is large and easy to read things. The full size keyboard is easy to operate and many different functions. The abilities and function that come on the cell phone are easy and very understanding to use. The battery life last for 2 1/2 days, even when used all day long. The themes and wallpapers are easy to understand and changable, or you can down load new ones.
Excerpt: I've had this phone for almost 2 years now and love it! It packs a lot of features into a very small package. The phone size is perfect. A slim build that fits nicely into a pocket, but without sacrificing screen size. The phone is ridiculously customizable in terms of the menus, shortcuts, and overall look of the screen. I've got it set up just right for quick access to messaging, photos, email, and internet.
Slide out keyboard with no backlight - how do type on that???
9 September 2012
Excerpt: This was the worst idea I ever had! I bought a Nokia Surge from a website instead of going with the cell phones that AT & T offers in their stores. I just do not like the selection at my local store. I want a Qwerty keyboard, but I do not need the internet package for the additional $40 that you have to get with Blackberrys. So, this Surge was perfect! But the keyboard literally isn't backlit!!!
Excerpt: I have had this phone for a little while I thought I could live with the number keys but it immediatly bugged me I hated the way the screen was extremely old looking. the keys were kinda close together and the keys always made clicking noises( not the beeping you can turn off in the setting but like button clickings). oh it also broke after just a bit of use.
How Do you tether the Straight Talk Surge 6790 to laptop?
15 February 2012
Excerpt: I have not figured out how to tether the phone to my laptop. The Nokia PC Suite has a place to connect but does not have the presets for Straight Talk. Other people have said they have done this. Please help with directions. Thank you in advance for any help you are able to provide.
Excerpt: I was drawn to this phone because of it's keyboard. I have massive thumbs and couldn't afford a large touchscreen phone, so I got this one because it was the only phone I could comfortably use. I also got it thinking that I couldn't break it. How wrong I was. My first one lasted a month until I closed the phone and the screen broke in half. I couldn't believe it.
Excerpt: the key sounds can be disabled. and i tether with mine all the time. i've had this phone for 11 months and it barely has a scratch on it. i've dropped it many times so i was surprised to read that one review. the only problem i have with it is the 2.5 headphone jack.
Excerpt: i'm very picky when it comes to phones. this one, i truely loved and thought i would have it for a while. sadly, i dropped it at work while texting, and it broke. it was ridiculous considering it landed on a rubber mat yet suffered such damage. the entire top left corner where the keyboard connects to the base of the phone was broken and when i took the back off to retrieve my sim card a big chunk fell off.
Excerpt: Do not buy this phone. I had it for 3 months and parts kept falling off. !st the directional pad and then the contacts. Nokia did not want to fix or replace it. this phone is made of cheap plastic parts. It does not tether which is a major downer. If your a texter like I am this phone will not last.
