Excerpt: When I first switched to AT&T, the Nokia Surge was on sale with a new contract. The phone seemed to be a good choice. Plus I was just excited to be getting a new phone, because the one I had was outdated.
Summary: I was like a dog with a bone in regard to this phone. I would not let it defeat me. But, in the end, it did. To perform the simplest functions, (like calling out to a non-contact) you had to go through a labyrinth. You may think you like the price, but you might be better off with something less brain twisting. Did I say you have to open the keypad to call out? that's if you are allowed to call out, just by using the slider, which you will not be.
Summary: I am very happy with this purchase. Everything went smoothly and it was delivered in quick time. The phone is a dream. It fits neatly in my pouch or pocket and the slide keyboard is inspired..
Summary: Exactly as expected. I was replacing another phone that I used exactly like this one. The only problem is that now when I receive a call it doesn't show the name from my address book , only the number. I don't like it but haven't been able to figure out how to correct the problem.
Summary: I have poor experience with this phone because it won't charge the battery. I have this same phone but the battery is bad and the pixels are not doing well. Have had it for years and really like this phone. The battery from the new phone charged well in the old phone and it worked in the new phone. But if it won't charge in the new phone then there is something wrong with the Remanufactacturing process.
Excellent, affordable phone. Has all the basics. If only it had Wi-fi...

Summary: Pros: Excellent, affordable phone. Has an FM radio, although you need small 2.5 mm earphones to play it. As a Symbian, it has a lot of good apps and games, some in 3D. Has a fair PDF reader. If you can afford it, vBag and Quickoffice are good apps for it. Cons: Though it kinda looks otherwise, it is not a touchscreen phone. Radio doesn't play unless you have headphones in. (-_-) Camera makes sounds whenever you take a picture and you can't change it under Settings. (??
