My best phone to date...
This is a short history of the phones I used since 1999:

1999-2001 Sagem MC912....pretty sturdy phone, battery died quickly though and some problems w/software

2001-2002 Nokia 3310....reliable but battery life was quite short, also it was way too heavy

2002-2003 Alcatel 512 Pretty nifty little bugger, but quite fragile, had to take it in for repairs twice before I gave up on it

2003-2004 Sagem My X-5, my 2nd BEST, very good, reliable, very good battery life

2004-2005 Motorola C385 pretty straight forward, good battery life

2005-..... This Samsung, the X480...I can't even remember how many times I dropped this phone, I even dropped it in water without realizing, picked it up minutes later, let it dry for a couple of days, worker without flaw. It's shell is pretty beat-up but no cracks...very good material/workmanship.

Battery life is not outstanding, but it still gives me 3-4 days, even after 4 years, despite some saying batteries (Li-ion) have about 3 yrs working life.

I love the shape, size of it, I wouldn't change this phone unless somehow it stops working.

this is still my favourite phone of all time, I have now had 22 phones, Blackberries, iPhones. But this cute little bundle of joy is by far the best.

I have had one of these for 3 years now and the problem list is endless. i have heard of people having them and having no trouble at all. mine on the other hand turns off when people try to call u. sometimes it just turns off for the sake of it. messages dont come through properly. everything works extremely slow. Even though i have deleted almost everything. The Keys are extremely sticky ans stop working from time to time. expecially #,0,* definately not worth the price

My X480 broke a couple of days ago. I bought it two and a half years ago. I was great. Suddenly starts to reset and I couldnt listen to any call, people could listen to me but I couldnt them so I had to close it and open it multiple times until it goes back in action. Battery was lasting around 8 now... Too bad this things happend, cause the size and features of the phone where perfect!

we use the X486, at first it unique lightness and stylish design catches you but after using it for two years when it decides to go its gone, it was quite faithfull and as my husband in into construction it has been in many accidents, it even fell off a 3 storey roof and survived by it just died i do not want another one like it though i believe this phone is more suited for children or women in an office
