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.
Summary: They say it's entry level, but plenty of phone for me. Upgraded the OS to "Gingerbread" with no problem -- and that's as far as I could take it. Most marketplace apps run, though I haven't tried that many. It's a little bulky, but that's the price to pay for a cool slide-out keyboard with tactile buttons. Great for my big old hands. Bought a rubberized hard case that makes it even easier to handle. Battery life doesn't seem to be that great.
Some people have to be dragged into the digital era... ;)

Summary: I bought this phone to replace my husband's old accidentally-washed-with-his-work jeans flip-phone. He was originally stubborn about going to a smart phone and I only talked him into it by reassuring him he'd have a physical keyboard and not those "annoying" touchscreen ones. Smartphones with physical keyboards AND good ratings are somewhat difficult to find. Pantech was one of the better rated ones, so I went with it.
Summary: I was a little hesitant at first to order this phone after reading so many negative comments about the hassle required to actually get the $25 airtime credit. I decided I wasn't going to give up until I received it, so I went ahead and ordered the phone. I received it promptly two days later. My initial impression of this phone is very good. It's nice looking & loaded with features. It seems solidly built, but not too large.
Summary: i originally had the samsung infuse and after the second time of it breaking i decided to wait for my upgrade to get the galaxy s 3 so to get me buy i searched and came across this im a extreme android fan and would settle for nothing less this phone is very sturdy and durable and a real bargin.
Summary: I got my Pantech Xover phone about three weeks ago. It is a very good phone. The voice quality is top-notch and the apps are amazing. I receive my email with no problems. I receive texts also with no problems. The only thing that could be improved is the battery. I have to charge it every day. I got the Pantech to replace a Blackberry which I also had to charge every day.
Summary: This phone looks good, is easy to use and gets the job done. If you've had a smartphone before, that's probably all you need to know from my review. If not, then keep reading... For me, this turned out to be a great phone for the money. I originally wanted just another feature phone, but the ones I liked the look of weren't much cheaper than this phone. So I went ahead and got the Pantech instead.
Summary: Neat little phone for the price. I bought it to use with my T-mobile account. Wasn't sure it would work, but found a way to unlock it on youtube. Just search for "unlock pantech crossover p8000". Now works with my T-mobile account and all my info on my SIM card is accessible. I like the android OS and wifi capabilities. Tried the GPS function and it kept searching for satellites.
Summary: The phone is nice and pretty good with the features and accessories. The touch screen interface is a also quite good. When I turned it on, I selected WiFi Only, which means I do not plan to use a data plan. Inside the house, close to WiFi, this worked great. However, after I inserted an existing SIM card from ATT, I got an email the following day saying that they have added a data plan to the account, since this is a smart phone.
