Excerpt: I absolutely hated this device as a phone. It would reboot when you would "shock" it with static electricity (like anytime in winter with polar fleece on) and didn't have enough power to get out of its own way. The screen was small and it didn't have enough device memory to run many applications.
Summary: Do not buy I have been using an Iphone 3GS for about a year. I switched to boost and purchased a Samsung Galaxy Rush because my reception was poor. I thought that getting a phone 2 generations newer would be nice. I was wrong. This phone is unbelievably slow.
Summary: I have had this phone for six months, and it started out just fine. I was reasonably happy at first.... Not great reception at my house, but that would not be an issue with the phone, just the service. Now the phone has lived with me for 6 months it has a mind of it's own.
Summary: I never got it wet, dropped it or abused it in any way, and the speaker stopped working. No sound for the ring tone or speaker phone function. A great way to miss every incoming call. I've only had it a couple of months. It just got past the 30 day warranty. I'd say avoid it like the plague.
