Stay Away from the Glyde

Posted on: September 3rd, 2010 by Anonymous

The good: qwerty keyboardThe bad: Horrible touch screenSummary: I am on my 3rd glyde replaced under warranty. They all have major problems with the touch screen with or without screen protector. The touch doesnt always recognize your touch it will almost always select something else on the screen than what you want. Many times you have to power off and on before the screen would become functional again. Do not waste your money buy something else.

wish touch screen was better

Posted on: February 19th, 2009 by Shawn Kenney

The good: keyboard is great, messaging is good.The bad: TOUCH SCREEN Summary: I like this phone but i can't deal with all of the problems with the touch screen. I can't count all of the times i've wanted to throw this phone against the wall. sometimes i want to send a text message but i have to wait 10 minutes for the touch screen to become responsive. If this phone had a better touch screen i would love it but i am going to get a different phone.

Take it Back ASAP!!

Posted on: January 10th, 2009 by Alaina Magrini

The good: Getting the phone in July thought it was quite attractive and cutting edge being one of the first touch-screen phones. Easy to hear people once called, great service anywhere you go(especially in NYC), small compact design made it easy to carry. I was worried about scratching the touch-screen so I bought a screen protector skin and a snap on plastic case - made the phone a but bulkier but the phone was well protected - kept the screen from scratching.The bad: The touch screen is a disaster! I bought the original phone in July... took it back 3 times because the touch screen would stick, meaning I couldnt push anything. I would be trying to send a text message, hitting send numerous times with the keypad open, slide it shut, couldnt send it there, open it back up, finally could send it! Too much thinking and effort into sending a simple txt. The touch screen would also light up on its own and push buttons/change screens by itself.Summary: The phone is sexy and could be worth the money if all the "bugs" were worked out. As said, I bought the phone in July and almost immediately the problems began. I love the QWERTY keyboard because I txt more than I talk. However, it's difficult having a phone you cant manipulate because the touch screen is having so many issues. My advice, after having 3 different Glyde phones, all with brand new software installed, DONT GET IT. It will definitely cause more frustration than necessary.(PS- when I brought the phone back yesterday to the store a gentleman who worked there asked me which phone I was having problems with, said the Glyde, and he grumbled something and told me to ask for a different brand new phone - got it, without any hassle... apparently people at VZW arent happy with the product either.)

Iffy type of phone

Posted on: January 3rd, 2009 by Jacqueline Garcia

The good: Qwerty keyboard wich makes txting faster, light weight; perfect size not too big, not too small. Nice features n screen layout. And the camera has flash =]The bad: The touch screen might sometimes tick you off, it will sometimes go somewhere where you dont want it to go.Summary: Overall this phone isnt really all that bad whats iffy about it is the touch screen. It sometimes tends to go to other places rather than it going where you want it too it could also be a little slow sometimes. The kool things about it is that it has a qwerty keyboard n if you're a texter lyke me you'll lyke the keyboard, tha camera also has flash which is koo. So yea not the best phone out there but its good

Not what I expected

Posted on: September 14th, 2008 by Weston Ogburn

The good: Great browser, neat menu system, many customizable options, keypad worked great and was easy to use, compact sizeThe bad: The touch screen was very difficult to use especially in mobile IM, the web browser, and the edges of the screen were hardly ever responsive. Also, because the glyde senses the electricity from your finger, after about a days use, oil from your finger collects on the screen and the electricity travels through the oil on the screen and selects the wrong thing. This wasnt too big of a problem, i just had to wipe the screen off every day. The lock does not lock the screen very well. Every now and tSummary: The touch screen can very very frustrating. Even though it has a very nice web browser, its slow and hard to select links. Overall, I would not recommend this phone.
