I have had this phone for over 2 years now and still don't want to get a new phone. I paid $70 for it when it came out, which was a pretty good deal at the time.

The thing that stood out to me the most was the style. It is simple and beautiful. Concentric rings make up the navigation buttons without labels to clutter them up. The screen is decent, but nothing to jump for joy about. I like the silver and black design and the overall shape really feels nice.

The reception is better than any phone I've ever used, and I get great coverage inside buildings and places where my friends don't get any. The battery life is really good too, as it still lasts for 3+ days on a charge after more than 2 years of heavy use.

It doesn't have bluetooth, which would've been nice. It does have and InfraRed port, which is kind of neat, if you have a laptop or computer with an IR port as well. The camera, while definitely not the best, is average and takes good pictures for phone use.

The only two things I don't like are the speed of the operating system and the memory. The OS feels rather sluggish sometimes, especially when trying to take a picture, and there is a measly 2.5 MB of storage on this phone, with no SD slot to upgrade.

Overall, I love this phone, and it has consistantly performed for 2+ years, which is more than I can say about most electronics these days.
