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...
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.
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.
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.
