The battery was working very bad from the beginning

Summary: The battery was working very bad from the beginning. I have to charge my phone every 6 hours even when I do not use it very much. I had done every trick I found in forums to reduce battery usage, and nothing solved the problem, so I should conclude the battery is wrong.
Summary: This is the worst phone I have ever owned. It's new and very slow. It shuts off while I'm talking. Sometime people can't hear me and I can't hear them. Have to reboot the phone and that takes a long time cuz as I said the phone is very slow
If you want a phone to last longer than 1 year than its not your phone!

Summary: I loved this phone at first but I only had it for not even a year and a half and i noticed that whenever I would use the keyboard that the intire screen would go black and then i would slide it back and hit the lock button and the screen would come back on but often it would turn blue, and red or...
Summary: The charger over heated the battery. It wouldn't hold a charge so I bought a new battery shortly after I got it. But even the new battery doesn't hold a charge. Also, I often lose phone calls because I touch the panel (or something) and it goes dead.
Summary: I have had this phone for 2 months, and it was nice when I got it. now it freezes up, drops calls, is slow to download webpages even on WiFi. I hate it. i have tried erasing apps, setting to factory, clearing data and nothing improves it's speed even for sending a text message. This phone is junk.
Summary: If a phone won't hold a charge it doesn't matter how many great features it has, it won't work! Being tethered to a charging cord is not acceptable. At first it would hold a charge for 4 hrs of standby time before it started shutting down to conserve battery.
Cons: Poor quality, Did not meet expectations, defective batteries common
Summary: So here it is November 2012 and I've been using this phone since the beginning of September. I regret the purchase. Pros: it is a "smart" phone. Has a querty keyboard. It's a good size for carrying around in tactical pants, and using out of doors.
