Summary: This is being used as a TEMPORARY PHONE and spare. Small Phone, Small screen, old android version. Putting a sim in this is hard to do, likewise putting in a micro SD card. Cover doesn't seem to close. As I said, A SPARE/TEMPORARY phone and as that it's adequate. We are using this on T-Mobile in US. This becomes a SPARE phone, once my Nexus 6 Arrives, wife gets Nexus 5, this becomes spare then.
Excerpt: I actually thought of buying Samsung Galaxy S the GT-I9000, or Apple’s iPhone 4 however, I realized that I will be needing a phone that is not so costly, but wil surely fit my needs and lifestyle; so i tried to look for other phones without compromising the features …
Excerpt: After getting bored with my previous analogue cellphone, I ventured on buying a tacky symbian based phone for the love of short messaging. Punching out buttons on a qwerty keypad didn’t necessarily feel any different but I loved the practical efficiency of my nokia e71.
Excerpt: This is my first android phone ever and I have to say it's not bad, regardless its "age". I bought it used for only €70. At first I had problems using it because it's impossible to turn off data transfer so if WiFi isn't available, it'll automatically connect to 3g/other carrier-provided network. Other than that, it works perfectly. Another negative experience is programming for android.
Pros: Small, responsive
Cons: Can't turn off data transfer, Old version of android
Summary: Hate this phone with a passion. On paper it's great but just too many things don't quite work properly now an again - apps not initializing, web sites confuse it now and again and can be left with the keyboard filling up the screen and can't close it. Keyboard is terrible for anyone all but the smallest finger tips. Nothing like an iPhone's KB or the HTC Wildfire. Needs something like the HTC Sense interface.
Pros: Build, screen
Cons: Heavy, slow / laggy cramped keyboard even with 'Better Keyboard' installed. Just a pain to own as a phone. .

Excerpt: This is an old phone (2009 model), and still its specs and functions are impressive for a low cost droid phone. 800 mhz cpu, mid range resolution, android 2,1, 1500 mAh battery, divx compatability,and physical back, home, menu, left, right, up, down, ok buttons, of which most android devices seem to lack (strange). There is no new devices better than this one for a similar cost.
