Good: The Bluetooth -- must have
Bad: The easily scratchable case, and screen that can not be replaced
Comment: The mystery of this phone is it lack of it. I bought this phone on contract, so therefore to my friends I shall keep up with the expression, ''I love it,'' as I have no option of changing it for another 18 months, and do not wish to listen to their ''told you so's''. The quality of the camera is hard to tell, because of the pitiful screen size. Also recordings are not up to the standard of my previous fone the Nokia 3650, obviously size does matter. The use of the Internet is a bonus, however to view a Web page on a tiny screen is as painful as it sounds. The key good point is that the annoying way to text has stoped me wasting money on so many messages, and even dialling numbers is sometimes more trouble than its worth... but hey here's to cheap phone bills! However at 60min there's little room to be chatty. NO GAMES -- what kind of a backwards world are we living in? A main concern of mine is the fact you get a second SIM card drawer, surely this causes some concern over the wear-and-tear of the manufacturing, of the fone as a whole.
Good: design of the phone (bit different)
Bad: Texting, camera, pictures, number entry
Comment: had this phone for about 6 months takes about 5minutes to type a text message that would normally take about 30seconds. camera is of poor quality & the pictures are too small to look at. MMS is worthless unless the item you are wanting to send is less than about 20b. all in all a nice looking phone but if you send more than 1 or 2 texts a day stay clear (although has cut my texts down fom about 800 a month to around 150 due to the hassle)
