Summary: Hardware shoulder buttons: One is a quick access list, the other is screen lock and power. I use them constantly. Keyboard: I can't manage to use on screen keyboards accurately. The hardware keyboard provides tactile feedback. The keys are large and nicely spaced, easy to see and feel. The sliding action is smooth and solid. All of the symbols accessed by the Alt key are also clearly printed on the keys, and I almost never need to go into the deeper symbol menu.
Good value for the money - Pros out weigh the Cons!

Summary: Overall I "like" the PantechCrossover. I tried 2 different similar phones which was disappointing that I returned before purchasing this one. Considering that this is my 1st touchscreen it's not bad at all. This phone is more durable/heavy duty/tough-like than most phones. It's also easy to use, comfortable in ways of size and feel in hand, and best of all it gives me the option of using the touchscreen or keyboard.
Awesome phone for the price! Have enjoyed using it.

Summary: This is a great phone, it is very durable and texting on it is amazing! The keyboard is great, the buttons are raised at the perfect level and spread apart good too. Screen size can be a bit of a pain though and connecting into wifi I've had trouble with. Whatever you do, do not update the phone. It erased all my phone data.
Summary: The phone is great for a starter smartphone. Before using this phone, download the Android 2.3 Gingerbread upgrade on a home computer from Pantech's website, plug phone into the computer and follow instructions to complete the update. The phone will operate much faster and better than with the original Android 2.2 software.
Summary: From the reviews I have read, it seemed to me that the wifi connectivity was strong. In fact, it was one of the best features. However, it was not "unlocked" as described on the product description. It only worked when an ATT SIM card was inserted. When I brought this phone overseas, I had no way of communication with my family, which was saddening. This phone was in fact, pig in the poke.
Summary: I'm very satisfy with the purchase. It's simple to use, cheaper and very ligth. I recommended this cell phone to everyone that I need A replace your expensive smartphone for any reason (broken, lost, or any reason that give you the necessity of new, great and cheap smartphone). They only problem that they have for me it's a very slow download of multimedia text messages.
