It was a decent phone.

  • Summary: I prefer full qwerty so texting was slow. The sound was not great. But other than that it was amazing.. This phone like other phones is not river resistant. Made the mistake of thinking i could kayak with my phone without getting wet.. Nope

excellent phone and a MP3-player replacement

  • Excerpt: Replacement for my 3-year old Sprint M300. The Trance is the best phone you could get from Verizon that doesn't have that much features like the Omnia/ EnV touch for example. With a 3.5mm jack and Bang ICEpower music tech (in addition to a microSD card w/ support up to 16GB), this phone plays music...
  • Pros: Long battery Life, Excellent music quality, Interface looks nice, Even has calling restrictions, Lots of storage (16GB microSD)
  • Cons: No EVDO, Fingerprint magnet, Camera quality is kind of sub-par with no video recording

Cool Little Phone

  • Excerpt: Actually I disagree with the above reviews...I find this to be a simple straight forward phone with a stunning MP3 player...the sound through my Shure S-310 pro earbuds is very, very good! Especially when tweaked...the B&O chip is better sounding than my iPhone 3GS!

  • Excerpt: OK so lets start off the top for all u pessimists... Verizon has not had a VERY GOOD phone ever... not kinda this one or kinda that one.. EVER... NEVER. So with that said, lets proceed. Simple slider design. not super heavy but feels of good quality. decent size screen.
  • Pros: style, quality, speaker quality, menu ease of operation, internal storage space 1gig
  • Cons: fragile glass front, lack of usual features (video etc)

Great Music phone

  • Excerpt: I've had this phone for about three days. So far it has worked perfectly. This phone is actually a bit of a downgrade and an upgrade in different ways. My last phone was a Samsung Gleam which was a great phone but i had to give it to my mom. Even though the camera is 1.3 it takes decent pictures.
  • Pros: Cool design, great music player can take standard headphones, up to16 gb storage
  • Cons: Touch sensitive buttons rub againg cheek while calling, 1.3 megapixel camera
