Love the phone,my friend,Dean,gave me one for free..
I owe him for it now,lol.
It has a qwerty keyboard akin to a pc's with a shift and alt key,a space bar,a menu button and a back button.also a delete button and a symbols key.
I bought a 2gb micro sd card and filled it with mp3's and videos.It plays mp3 perfectly.great sound..reasonable battery life.Video is in a 320 x 180 avi format,but looks like HD on the scaled down screen.I downloaded a free app for my pc to convert video into supported formats.The OS I upgraded through the blackberry software app,downloadable from the web.There a number of OS themes to choose from..
I had a slight issue with the trackball,which was easily fixed by turning off the phone,holding down the ball and rolling it in every direction..There is a volume control button on the right side ,which doubles as a next track button for the mp3 and video player when held down..On the other side is a button which you can assign as a single press quick access to any app or function...I found the voice recognition to be hit and miss,also there is a jack for mini headphones and a usb slot for charging the battery and data transfer.The battery also charges,but slower with the phone connected to pc.There is no camera on the phone,it's major flaw,but it displays pictures well with a zoom and pan function...also any mp3,or voice recording can be set as a ringtone...overall I'ld give it 85 per cent,the lack of a camera and shoddy voice recognition being it's main detractors.Now I'll go to get Dean a decent wedding present..:)

Of course you can't stream youtube. It's not an issue it's related to your connection speed. Wifi connections are generally faster than edge so youtube will actually stream.
