I bought my envy 2 about two years ago and it has been the best phone I have ever owned. It is durable (i have dropped it in water dirt ect.), reliable (long battery life), has an excellent keyboard, phenomenal coverage and reception and is the perfect size as it fits into my pocket easily and can be whipped out whenever I receive a text message or call. The keyboard is easy to use, the letters light up and there are two bumps on the F and J key allowing me to text without even looking! This is a very durable phone and has not had a problem in the two years I have owned it. I have dropped this phone in water sand mud and on pavement and It still hasn't broken. Verizon does excellent with coverage and I am almost never without at least 2 bars. The phone came with a variety of ringtones and options to be able to customize the phone to my specific needs. The sound quality (even though it is a texting made phone) is very clear. The phone has an 2 megapixel camera and photo cropping capabilities. You can record sounds and give the phone voice commands allowing hands free operation while driving. The battery when the phone is not being used can last 1 week on. When I use the phone for 6+ hours a day It lasts about 2 days. This is an all around great phone and I recommend buying it!
