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.
Excerpt: Pros: Great screen. The video games are surreal. Texting with T9 is easy and convenient. Video rings are great! Envy of many friends Access to yahoo, google, and Myspace. Cons: Rings and alerts not loud enough. Camera leaves a lot to be desired. Flash makes pics unintelligible.
love service and phone, just the battery needs some work..... :(

Excerpt: I just can't say how much I love this phone! I switched to Helio from Cingular and am happier and happier everyday with my choice. First of all, let me say that I switched from a Treo 680 to the Drift.
Excerpt: What an amazing phone, everything is great on this phone, however it would be nice if the plans were cheaper. It would be so nice if this phone was available for sprint this would be top seller no doubt......
Excerpt: I just recently got a drift..But man do i love the phone..It gets great reception the amount of things you can do to personalize it is crazy and the google maps is the coolest thing i have ever seen for a phone.
Excerpt: This phone is great, dont get me wrong BUT...the camer is pure garbage. If u dont have the hand of a statue when taking pictures....they look ugly!! Pros: -GREAT UI... -GREAT customization!! -BLUETOOTH+HELIO! -Sexy slider.
Excerpt: This phone is literally loaded with options. I love everything that Helio offers and enjoy that fact that you get everything with the All-In package. The drift has everything that a phone should offer and a little more. On a huge plus, it all works too.
Excerpt: I was about to purchase this phone and switch from Cingular to Helio, but thank goodness I did some additional research before buying! A previous reviewer mentioned that he or she had trouble accessing Gmail, and that that was a dealbreaker for this particular phone.
