This is the worst cell phone I've used. The keyboard is virtually impossible to see in most light conditions because its silver finish reflects light and the keys' pale blue backlighting defines nothing -- unless used in darkness. The keyboard is incredibly sluggish, with the space bar especially requiring inordinate firmness of touch. Charge life is short. When I sought to exchange it, Credo phone service offered to replace it with a REFURBISHED Reflex OR one of five smartphones, which require hundreds of dollars in added charges. And my renewed contract was binding, with or without new phones. Credo calls itself the only politically "progressive" phone company; it donates one percent of revenues (a paltry sum at best) to liberal causes. It's a good ploy that serves to mask sleazy business practices.

Anyone having troubles with dropped calls, poor signal.

Sure, you've gort a big name behind you, but that's what you pay for, the big name, the status symbol. Sad that these piddly little devices are still being made when Google has created one of the best Mobile Phone OS's currently available

In many ways Android and iOS are overrated.

I am thinking about getting this phone but does it let you text by just clicking the screen or do you have to use the keyboard?

FAIL. Get a Sony Ericsson Xperia Pro instead.

Just purchased this phone through Boost Mobile. Easy to set up. I really feel for the money it is a great phone. So far no problems.

I love this little phone! it is very light weight and stylish. i have seen no flaws, although i have only had it a few days. I think it is a good phone for someone with no data, but for people with data, i have no idea. i really like the touchscreen and the voice command. i would defenitly recommend this! P.S.- there have been no stores i can find selling cases for this phone, but amazon has lots!

I've made calls by accident also & text msgs. have you had any problems with beeping noise while on voicecalls? I can't figure out what it is.

New style of phone for me but I've found it full of features. Sound is great. Only problem, and that's probably me, is the sensitivity of the touch screen. I'm sure it will be much better as I get used to the phone. Love This Phone!
