Cannot recommend. Has been just barely tolerable despite turning all all the bloatware I could without rooting. Do yourself a favor and get something more up to date with a lot more internal memory. No amount of memory management can make up for what is simply not there in the first place (not even adding SD memory helps much even in the most recent iterations), but the apps forced into this device certainly do cripple it to the point of not being usable at all until as many as possible are defeated. Even then it will be an exercise in frustration. Between Moto & ATT, this device's implementation was botched. Which is sad in that it had such excellent potential for a starter Android smartphone. But now, a year later, it is merely another irrelevant piece of obsolescence. I like Motorola on the whole, but this one should be avoided.

Have had the Flipside for two years now... and just to let the author know, the version of Android listed in the article needs to be updated to Android 2.2 (Froyo). See here for details:

Understand when I tell you this phone is a piece of crap. It freezes, the memory sucks, and the battery power is terrible. If your looking for a good phone I suggest the Samsung captivate glide that is what i have now and its the best phone I ever had.

This phone is kinda cool doe, I am kind of qwerty physical keyboard person, but if you don't have enough memory it sucks. The UI MOTOBLUR sucks battery,slows the phone down,lags and causes freezes. I admire but sometimes it's a pain. I want to root it to rid the bloatware but wouldn't even bother because I am going to get a Sony Ericsson Xperia Pro and selling it.

this phone sucks, not enough memory to load more than a couple programs, keeps freezing up requiring a master reset. Worst phone I have ever owned, I am going back to a BlackBerry.

run far from this phone!!!!!! do not purchase. i regret buying this phone. camera is shitty. my past bb storm camera is better than this. memory is another shitty feature of this phone. constant out of memory errors with this phone. even with 2.2.2 installed, not worth it. shitty, shitty phone... i have like 3 apps installed- less than 4 mb for 1 and the other 2 about 2 mb and it says i have 32 mb free... and dont talk about bloatware from at&t, rooted and deleted all the bloatware and it still didnt release any memory.
please for your sanity, do not buy this phone!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
