5 out of 5 eggsLove this phone.

Pros: Great little phone!
- keyboard is small, but after a couple of days messing with it, I was really fast at typing. My fingers are not really small, so people with bigger fingers shouldn't have a problem with this phone.

- camera is ok. But I never bought this phone for the camera. It does the job

- applications. I had a few applications on there, like GOAL.com, tether app, and my favorite was Microsoft office. I had people constantly sending me word documents for work, it was nice to view them when I wasn't at my desk. On rare occasions I even edited the documents and sent them back. Believe me, it was really handy.

- email. No unified inbox, but I kind of like not having it. It just kept everything neat and organized.

- tethering. It took me a while to get the tethering to work, but after finding articles online, I was up in no time.

Cons: had to restart the phone a couple a times a month, because the internet wouldn't work sometimes. But then again, my phone is really old.

Other Thoughts: Great smart phone, good amout of features, and is reliable.

1 out of 5 eggsJunk

Pros: Shiny, nice specs. Works great between full resets (see below)

Cons: Works for 1-2 weeks at a time before a complete OS reset is done. I did not buy from Newegg and am now stuck with this paperweight.

Other Thoughts: Have gotten a total of 3 of these units (2 warranty replacements via cell provider) in the first 6 months of ownership. The longest I ever had it work was 3 weeks when I did not do any software upgrades or install ANY programs. When doing such things expect it to last 1 hour-2 weeks tops before you need to do the equivalent of an OSRI loosing ALL DATA!

Read other online reviews it is a model specific issue with no solution. Samsung tried to tell me I must be doing something wrong after waiting 3 weeks for them to get back to me after I gave up on the tech support and endless replacements from my cell provider.

Been gathering dust for months as I have enough scruples not to re-sell it to someone.
