"Awesome Phone!"

The good: Features, Speed, Facebook and other Social Networking Apps, Messaging, and Theme/Settings Diversity.

The bad: Battery Life, Freezes Occasionally

Summary: I've had a Samsung TouchScreen, RAZR, RAZR 2 V9M, MOTO Clutch, and several other phones, and by far, this beats them all. I loved having a touch screen but they freeze alot and scratch so easily, so they are really aggravating. This phone definetly makes up for it with its large screen, great QWERTY keypad, scrollball, and features. All-in-all, I would recommend this phone to anyone (including experienced smartphone users and the beginners who have never owned one). It does freeze up occasionally when you overuse it or bind it down with several apps running at once, and sometimes restarts itself. The app memory could be increased greatly, but it's fair. And the battery life is ok but not outstanding. But....as long as you are not using it and keep it on the "standby" mode, the battery lasts great...where I work, I'm under a steel reinforced ceiling with concrete overlay, which means that I can hardly get any signal inside and the phone has to work overtime to achieve a signal, which severely drains battery lift. So, I keep mine on standby mode while at work, and when I leave, it's almost completely full. When off of standby mode, it still has over half of the battery life left when I get out of work. The features of the phone are awesome...Facebook works pretty good and looks cool, as well as Myspace, Email, and the Blackberry Internet. Ringtones also sound great and the camera is definetly a plus with a great flash. So, overall, this is a great phone with alot of good awesome features and pretty good battery life!

PS. I have Boost Mobile and purchased my Blackberry through them on the $60 per month prepaid plan. It works great! Also, as for the couple of people who were on here complaining about their phone freezing up (even after them and their family members have tried several of them), are overexaggerating greatly. They have probably downloaded several apps and ignored the warning message that comes up saying "your application memory is almost full, please select an app to remove" If you ignore those, your phone will restart and freeze all the time because it has no memory left to run your apps.
