I love this phone,the auto memory is really helpful when it comes to dialling a number that ia already dialled,once you enter the first 3 digits every numbers that have those 3 digits popped up.
A lackluster phone, though good-looking and with a slick slider form factor.
Depauperate in the feature department: no memory card capability (and only 3 mb onboard), poor camera, no video, no mobile email client, HFP/HSP bluetooth profiles only, can't put third-party apps on it if not signed by T-Mo (and with the measly memory, you won't get much on it even then and/or it will be prone to crash), cannot change T-Mo branded theme. Definitely not worth the $120 T-Mo was charging for it (now it's down to $40 on their site... at this price, it may be worthwhile).
On the plus side: it's easily unlocked for free, to use with another domestic GSM carrier or overseas; Google is your friend here.
On the bad side of this good side: unlocking still won't allow OTA config of WAP parameters for use with other carriers, and for some reason it still will not work with some foreign carriers, period. Looks like T-Mo sabotaged it in many ways. Unfortunately, this seems par for the course. Combined with the above issues, being only triband and lacking 900 MHz (more popular abroad), it works marginally overseas. At the current lower price, it'd make a decent domestic workhorse/beater, housed in a nice exterior. Don't depend on it alone if traveling abroad!
My only issue with the phone is that is does not transfer files with bluetooth and does not use a standard mini usb for data and charging. Other than that it is a very simple phone and of good quality overall.
The Bluetooth limitations WERE really annoying - I thought I'd be able to use it to sync with my Outlook, and it turns out it only recognizes Bluetooth headsets and hands-free devices - nothing else. Huge bummer.
On another note, my phone seems to be having some issues displaying all contacts. Some ("Mom," for instance) that were saved on my SIM card don't display in my phone book. When I try to input the number manually, it says the number is already in use on my SIM card! Overwriting it doesn't seem to make any difference. Has anyone figured this out?
i had this phone for a while and it is very bad it has no features the camera is horrible and the bluethooth does not find other phones.personnaly i regret buying this phone
according 2 the website, it has video. But it doesnt and it says it has a usb......... wrong. also, this phone is supposed to be great in bluetooth according to some people....... it doesnt even notices other bluetooth devices. this phone to be upgraded and needs some technological improvments..... this fone is whack........
Mine stopped working after 10 months. Started with the clear buttom, and continued with the up and down buttom...now all top buttoms dont work...
I have had this phone for the past year[a very long time]..and now it has finally stopped working write..started out with keys not working and now it doesnt work right at all....if i were u i would avoid getting it..not that it is all bad. i just wouldnt recommend it...for example the (blutooth) it doesnt work at all. it can never identify anything. Even if u are simply trying to download something from a friend..still [doesnt] work...also the whole tmobile display theme can not be changed(bummer)..so as a [previous] owner...i dnt recommend it. even tho its not all bad. [Also has a long battery life compared to other tmobile phones].....
I've had this phone about a month. So far, it's worked fine, although the delete all messages function doesn't always work properly.
can anyone comment on the bateries life of this phone. Mine seem to last only 1 day.
