Summary: I've been using PDAs/smartphones for years. Prior to the BlackJack, most recently a Palm Treo 650, and before that, a Blackberry. Compared to the Treo, the voice quality and overall reliability are much better (doesn't reboot every half hour).
Summary: I bought this phone because of its advanced features and Windows based applications. I ran into two problems that after 25 calls to Cingular could not be esolved and I had to returrn the phone. 1) Cingular does not have the expertise to support this phone, 2) The e-mail feature is ridiculus..
Summary: In some ways, it's a great phone - the screen is BEAUTIFUL and the storage of films and audio are great. But those are extras - in what you basically need, it often is terrible. To search a name, I push the CONTACTS button.
Summary: I was looking for a fast (3G) phone that had windows mobile on it so I could use it for streaming television from my slingbox. As much as I love my Nokia E62, it just doesn't take pictures, have 3G, and won't play my slingbox.
Summary: I will say that the most annoying part of a cell phone is the latency associated with navigating the menus, browsing the web, etc. My razr is so slow to go through menus, to cycle through contacts rapidly, browsing the web is a chore.
Summary: All and all It's not a bad little phone, The sound quality is good, reliable reception in places where other phones drop out... but there are some bugs. 1. If you're going to connect it to a laptop to use as a modem via USB, beware it won't charge from USB and will deplete a fully charged battery in...
Warning - Blackjack does not run Java Apps (like Google Maps, Google Mail) properly

Summary: I have a Blackjack, and would echo the comments of the other reviewers that it is in most respects an excellent phone - although having coming from the Treo / Palm world, the Windows Mobile UI seems hard to use and confusing.
