"Take it Back ASAP!!"

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.)
