Summary: I bought this phone for the keyboard, bc I prefer it to a screen keyboard. The "r" button is now having problems--I have to press on it hard to get an "r" to appear. And sometimes the phone powers off by itself.
Now it keeps breaking up really bad when I'm talking to someone or the screen freezes ...

Summary: I gave this phone three stars because it only made it a year. Well to be technical it made it 1 yr and 2 months but still. It worked really well for me up until about three weeks ago. Now it keeps breaking up really bad when I'm talking to someone or the screen freezes up.
Summary: I wanted to love this phone, and I liked it enough to use it for a year. The keyboard is great, and the slide mechanism is very tight and effective, and did not wear out. The phone comes with Android Gingerbread on it, but can be updated to Ice Cream Sandwich (but be careful with that-- see below).
Summary: I do like the phone but there are some issues. A problem with the phone itself is, often when I open the slide-out keyboard, the phone powers off. That seems to be a design flaw to me. Also, this phone, though unlocked, is still dependent upon the AT&T network.
Summary: Although this phone is really unlocked, superb stats at a great price, it comes with all the configuration for AT&T. Basically it has all the krapware from AT&T + some internal configuration that its making the GPS to take minutes to lock.
