Summary: This looks like a great phone, love the size of this phone, really would have liked to use it. Unfortunately, no cell phone provider will activate this phone. Helio went out of business and the providers who at one time offered to activate these phones on their service.
Summary: Phone in great condition and the skin looks awesome on phone. Absolutely nothing negative to say...even the box, car/house chargers, and usb cable as well as earphones are in wonderful condition. I love everything about it. ..muchas gracias.

Summary: I suggest this phone to anyone who does not want to spend alot but wants it all. When I first bought this phone, it did nearly everything the Iphone did. Except it was 3G! Casing is great and strong. Drop it nearly everyday and no issues. The chargers tend to wear out fast and wont charge you phone. So be ready to buy new ones once in awhile. Both aftermarket and OEM charges did this.
Summary: I give a the helio devices an excellent rating. simply because they are excellent devices. the Drift by Helio is a very sophisticated device, it comes in sexy white, or midnight black. Drift packs real heat with its 2.0 mega pixel camera. clean video recorder, not to mention; all your pictures can be uploaded straight to myspace(tm) from your phone. with its speedy 3G network, you can also download over the air music, music videos, ringtones, 3D games, wallpaper, apps...
Summary: The new features this Helio has going for it, though, are what you are likely most interested in and thus what I will cover most. First, there is the 3MP camera that is built in, then there is the thin and sexy clamshell form factor; I have borrowed a pink RAZR for comparison. Other than that there’s Helio’s Ultimate Messaging Suite and Ultimate Inbox. The new features on the software side aren’t small in comparison either. First there is Helio On Top or H.O.T.
Summary: Product is of the finer quality of the Helio Phones. It contains bluetooth technology to do some features such as those of the Headset devices. It has the tight myspace integration which allows users to do online chatting.
Excerpt: I give HELIO a try in hopes to find a provider to stay with and new phones and all. I got be 2 Drifts, and to my surprice while the phones were GREAT overall, HELIO's main network sucked.. I found my seld roaming a lot indoors on Verizon but that is to be expected since the main network is Sprint's. Overall the phone is great, but it does have a cheap feal to it. A bit bulky for a slider phone in comparison to some sliders that have been out in the last year or so..
