I got this phone about 4 months ago as part of a plan I was renewing s, o it was free. Overall, it is pretty fantastic. It comes with all the necessities, such as good screen, decent applications like alarm clock and camera, perfect size, weight, and distribution. It is also highly durable, as in a fit of rage I've already thrown this phone once and it bounced back just fine. The camera, while not being the best available, is still the best I've had on a phone - offering 4x zoom and quite a clear picture. It can be very handy for fast snapshots of things. Text messaging is available, and although there is not a full keyboard like on some PDA phones, it is a good enough interface that it doesn't slow me down too much. The phone can accept email and all the other things now necessary, so I recommend it as quite a good buy for anyone with a modest budget but still seeking some of the uses of a great phone.
