Summary: The Zio is a nice phone, however, the design of it, having the camera button right on the side where you naturally hold the phone is really annoying. Almost everytime I grab the phone to use it I press the camera button bringing it up when I do not want to use the camera. Otherwise nice.
Excerpt: I used this phone for a little over a year and it was worn out. I have to admit I really use a phone but the battery wore out after a few months and I bought a oversized long life battery and it took me for about another 7 months. The last few I just left it on the car charger and switched batteries with my girlfriend. The screen was hard to see through in the end(maybe I should shave more often?) from scuffing.
Excerpt: I'm really disappointed. I bought this phone believing they still offered free text messaging, but it now costs 15 cents for outgoing messages. The reason I bought the phone was so I could text for free. I'm also frustrated that I can't register the phone online after waiting 20+ minutes for someone to answer my phone call and then hanging up. A 5 year old could type everything correctly during registration, so it's not an error on my part.
