I loved it, but many flaws.

  • Excerpt: I had this phone for about 3 weeks with VZW. I loved it, the screen, the classic clamshell form with the extendable antenna, and of course, windows mobile. I really loved my phone, but love soon turned to sadness. My big complaint with the phone was battery life, it was awful, so I got an extended battery, and that improved a lot. But then, one evening without warning, I was unable to connect to the network to make calls.

Not Ready for Prime Time

  • Excerpt: This phone has potential, especially since I have lugged an i600 around for 2+ years. But the software is just not there. Pros - Outlook sync - But took my tech guy 10 hours at $90/hour, goes down if administator not logged on server 100% of time. Form Factor - OK Cons - Many are repetitive from other reviews but valid Front lit panel not really usable for even Caller ID, timing is so short, did not use to wear watch, now I have to.

It has so much potential but can't seal the deal.

  • Excerpt: When it was time to buy a new phone from Verizon and i came across this in the store, i thought it was the perfect phone. For people who want to use outlook to manage their schedule and contacts, as I do, this is the only phone that has a normal keypad instead of an awkward mini-qwerty. If also looks and feels like a phone instead of a waffle.

phone/software needs some big fixes

  • Excerpt: I really want to like this phone, but there are too many nuisances/bugs that make for an unpleasureable experience. I am pretty sure I will return it to Verizon. I have been long waiting for a compact phone that has full featured contacts and calendar so that I can sync to Microsoft outlook. All the other PDA's that are out there are too bulky. So when I saw this unit I was like... "ahh finally".
