Great phone, but not the best

Posted on: May 26th, 2008 by dustin pline

The good: Great camera, keys are close together so its really easy to text, vibrates so you know when you pressed the heat sensored buttons, very loud speaker phone, big screen, very fast scrolling with the wheel, loud earpeace so you can hear the person on the other line very well in loud places, 3 very different themes for your own personalization, screen does not scratch easy, people will look at it and think you spent a fortune on it =], great battery life if you have the settings right.The bad: No flash on camera, hard to slide up after eating greasy food, when pushing up, down, right, or left, sometimes i would slide the wheel accidentally so it would throw my scrolling off.Summary: I got this for my 14th birthday. I had no expectations on what phone i wanted or what features i like. as long as it had a camera i was fine. its a great phone overall exept for the things that I, personally, thought should have been changed such as flash for the camera.

Great Phone

Posted on: December 19th, 2007 by sarah noneya

The good: Music and other great offersThe bad: touchsceen- sometimes, you have to press the buttons more than once, and if it's in your pocket and not on the lock mode, buttoms might be pressed and messeges could be accidentally sent, contacts erased, etc.Summary: the newer chocolates are very efficient and stylish! i have dropped mine well over 30 times (literally!) and it still continues to work. This Christmas, i have the choice of upgrading, but I?m choosing to stay with the chocolate! its very easy to use and fits my needs. i can have a few music files, around 1,000 contacts, games, updating ring-tones, etc. i think it's well worth the money and is everything you're going to want and need!
