Very Nice phone, nice design, nice price, and just right for a texter

Summary: So, I just received this phone today after my beloved Env3 decided to slowly circle the drain of phone life. Anyway I love the look and the feel of the phone. It feels really sturdy, and we'll see how that goes as time progresses since I am moving in a month and will be using it more than usual over the next 10 months when I'm in AmeriCorps.
Excerpt: I got this phone brand new from Verizon, and here I am a year and a half later, and it's been reduced to rubble. I'm not that hard on phones, so I have to assume that some of this is the phone's bad build quality. It was very cheap, and that made it worth the purchase, but there are some fatal flaws.
Pros: Phenomenal typing experience., Great media player (but no 3.5 jack)., No required data., Very affordable., Great reception., Beautiful and big display.
Cons: Can't turn the phone off and expect it to come back on., Inferior plastic film quality over the screen tends to chip off., Battery is dying a year and a half in., Backup manager somehow doesn't work - had to type in all my contacts by hand on my next phone.
Summary: my son finds this phone very user friendly and easy to use. my son tried other phones but had trouble using them and understanding them. so i got this one and he found it very easy to use and understand. nothing to dislike about this phone except for small keypad if you have big fingers.
Summary: The keyboard takes time to get use to an the camera is not the best. If theirs issues with charging/turning on phone I suggest trying a different charger. Worked for me, an no problems sense.Its no android, but overall its a nifty lil phone that works well an does not require a data plan.
Summary: I had to downgrade my phone from a droid to this simply because I couldnt afford the bill anymore. For the amount of money I paid its a great phone. Does everything I need it to do. Plus some. The thing I dont like about the phone is that when you hit the camera button it goes to video camera so that can be a little frustrating. But all in all I like the phone alot.
Good basic phone for good price. Adds mp3 player which saves even more $.

Summary: I purchased this for my son when his Jest broke. I know that as far as texting goes on it, he already knew all the shortcuts so it doesn't seem to affect his speed over a keyboard phone. He seems to like the mp3 player built-in.
