I received this phone for my birthday in 2006 and I still have it now one year later. I like the fact that it's not too small and not too big. Just right as Goldilocks would say. My meaty paws don't dwarf the thing and its size means it can be chucked at your enemies with extreme prejudice. It's pretty durable as well. A good thing since I tend to be very clumsy with my phone.
The reception in my area can be downright embarassing sometimes (having no reception in your own home is not fun) but is otherwise decent. The battery lasted an entire week without recharging but after 8 months or so it needed a charge every day or every other day. It seems to be normal for most phones.
The phone also contains a camera. And I love taking and sending pictures so that was definately a big plus. Unfortunately, the camera is rather weak and pixelated so the pictures are not of the greatest quality. Overall though, I have enjoyed the use of my phone and could not live without it. I think it is a decent phone for the price.
