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!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

cant connect my phone with google server, which makes it hard to download on it, and i can only recieve files through bluetooth because i find it hard to send files through bluetooth.

Despite using relatively high-end devices like Cliq 2 / Milestone 2 / XPRT, I still decided to get this phone (free with contract renewal) even though the phone seems a bit old by now.

I got the phone unlocked and upgraded to Android 2.2, the latter really helps as I can move most of the apps to the micro-SD card. (got a 16G one for around US$20!),

I am also using other qwerty Moto phones like Milestone 1 & 2, Cliq 1 & 2, and XT300. the keys on the Flipside indeed are among the largest, which makes typing easy.

No chance to measure battery life under 3G operation, as I took the phone overseas which only works on 2G network, and I haven't charged the phone for 2 days already. (vs. daily on most of my other Android phones running on 3G)

Hence I actually use my Flipside more as a "phone" then Android, due to its relatively compact size.

For Chinese handwriting input, there is an app call touchpal keyboard on market.

Love moto's, the only phone company that makes phones i don't break every six monts.
Pros: Android OS, app variety and availability, music player, full keyboard or touchscreen keyboard (situation specific options), price
Cons: Battery life (if you use a lot of apps), no Swype compatibility.

I am new to the Droid-type phone. I wanted one with a keyboard with large visible letters, and a screen large enough to read without reading glasses. I am quite happy with this phone. The battery life is short, compared with my old phone, but it more than makes up for that in it's capabilites. It also has a very nice camera.

Worst phone I've ever had. Locks up all the time and it takes 7 minutes before you can read your text messages. I hate that thing. Hate it. Wouldn't recommend it to anyone that I care about.

My wife loves this phone as an entry into the smartphone market. It's not going to wow anyone looking for a high-end device, but for what it is (an entry-level android), it works great!
