"crashes easily" - yes a windoze mobile Os (?) often crashes, but generally mobile devices OS is weak for definition.
"useless camera" - 1,3 Mp, discrete colours, honest definition. "useless gps"- I installed TomTom 6 the last year. Fix for effemeridi update from cold use: 30 sec., fast in computation and its display.
"bad phone" - crisp audio, great sensibility in zones with bad signal, i can us it with my left hand: try to do the same with the fantastic iphone 4... ;)
"internal memory blocked" - not my case but you can install
programs on Mini Sdcard too.
But, OVERALL, in 2010 we are still speaking about a 2006 mobile phone:
this is the sign that it is still a good, honest, decent piece of hardware...

@ sanchezcaro
Simply you are a complete ignorant of technology.
Read with attention its specs:
GPS, WI-FI, Bluetooth, Touchscreen, 416 Mhz cpu, hardware graphic acceleration, external keyboard, infrared port et cetera et cetera.
Plus its layout permits to be used with one hand.

My experience with it:
Dropped from 2 meters: no damages.
Sensibility for radio module: superior to Apple iphone.
Yes unique problem is edge for data... as the iphone 2007-2008 ;)

I cant believe today in 2010 good opinions about this outdated phone. Tell me truly: have you ever tried a recent phone? or do u live in afganistan or a similar country? Here in Spain any known person, wokmates.. who see me take it out of my phone asks me what is this brick, "gameboy", "plumber register machine"... those are literal words from them translated from spanish
I bought this in march 2008. The motherboard crashed in jan 2009. Its been carefully treated, but its really slow from the beginning and apart from wat other users say:
- crashes easily
- the browser doesnt support any multimedia content
- really slow processor
- useless camera
- useless gps, only if you get so lost that u wouldnt mind waiting half an hour, u would use it, besides u cant uninstall the preinstalled outdated tomtom navigator version
- bad phone: bad coverage, low sound in phonespeaker, blocks sometimes for no aparent reason, ppl on their nerves for a zzzzzz they hear during a call...
- guys from hp have internal memory blocked so u cant uninstall any preinstalled software
I could be all night telling disadvantages NO COMPRES ESTE TELEFONO! lo que dicen abajo es cierto. Me siento engañado por HP, estoy deseando cambiarlo desde meses despues de comprarlo y no pienso comprar ningun telefono mas de esta marca. Esta visto que los pocketpcs no son lo suyo. HP solo deberia fabrica r ordenadores e impresoras

This device is crap, bought it 4 years ago and today had smashed it into a wall. It cost me so much nerves when I wanted to call somebody fast and I just couldn't because of it's lag and all of it's tricks - like you want to call, but no, you have just called someone, so device turns off by itself even when the battery is full, and then you cannot turn it on! an finally when you turn it on, it has no gsm signal for about 5 minutes. So if it's still on sale in some countries DON'T buy it! it's laggy, it's not dependable, and HP - they just forget about support and updates. Will !!!never!!!! ever use any of HP products! So glad I had smashed it today! finally I can buy a good device after many years of struggling with this piece of sh..!

Why shut it off? Just put it to flight mode, turn off the screen with the button on the top right corner and put it away. With the excellent battery life and short recharging time, I never had a problem.
If you REALLY want to turn it off, the only way is to take out the battery

DO NOT BUY THIS PHONE, YOU WILL DEFINITELY REGRET IT! I got this phone (it was 6945 version) brand new (I also had various phones), and problems were following:

- Battery life is short (1,5 day max)
- All data in the phone memory dissapeared TWICE
- Unstable wireless connection
- After the installation of multiple applications (FROM TRUSTED SUPPLIERS), phone works muuuck slower (although none of them were running in background)
- When trying to make a call, it freezes (solved that with new software from 6915, 6915 and 6945 are the same phones)
- Can't get MMS Messaging to work
- In the camera mode, after turning GPS positioning and frame counter, these can't be shut down without a reset (soft or hard)
- Camera is very bad, even for 1,3 mpix (compare nokia 6230i with same camera and display 65K)
- It takes forever (more tahn 5, even 10 min+)to read SIM contacts
- Lack of option to mark all contacts or delete all at once, you have to delete one contact at the time.
- Video player doesn't support a medium quality and medium resolution .MP4 files, only .3gp and .H.263.
- SMS messaging: it's hard to switch between capital and small letters, without using the touchscreen (it shows cal letters on, and then it turns cap.l. off for no reason).
- Speaker sound is too weak
- Below average sound quality on the headphones (original ones)
- It doesn't support animations (only shows first frame of.GIF file)
- Freezes when trying to change profile (eq. from general to silent).
- Below average network reception
- QWERTY keys too small

I could go on an on, and on, but there is on point. this phone was carefully used and it still did all of this and more.
MY FRIENDLY ADVICE, AVOID THIS PHONE !
