Excerpt: This phone is great if your needs are simple. There are limited apps for windows 7.x but many to manage your life. Kindle is available but not Kobo. The phone is clear and easy to use. Listen to music, radio apps etc. If you don't want apps for workouts, rides etc. This phone fits most needs.
Summary: First off, I was at first gravely disappointed when I thought I couldn't add CUSTOM RINGTONES. Then I discovered how... To create a ringtone using the Zune software Open the Zune software and find the file you want to turn into a ringtone. Right-click the file, and then click Edit. In the GENRE list, click or type ringtone, then click OK. Connect your phone to your computer using a cable, and then sync the file to your phone.
Summary: This phone is great! Easy to use. The volume, especially on the speakerphone, is fantastic. The phone is sturdy. Camera is great and takes really nice videos also. Even though this is "unlocked" I couldn't get it to work with my carrier as far as the MMS messages, which is frustrating - That was my whole reason for purchasing this....but hey, you win some and you lose some.
I've become one of "those" who can't keep their hands off their device.

Summary: This is a fantastic smart phone but be prepared to deal with limitations if you're on a pay as you go or a bring your own sim card plan. If you're with AT@T with a data plan you're good to go on this phone. Many features rival anything on an Android or Iphone device. But if you're on a bring your own plan or a basic pay as you go with another carrier, there are limitations. Many of the apps that come bundled with the phone only work through a data plan! (Bummer).
