I am looking @ this AT&T go phone, to take back control of my exspenses. I have had a Blackberry Pearl with a sd card slot and the ability to bluetooth files from one device to another and an mp3 player, guess what I never used them. I am looking for a phone to take calls, check emails, receive text messages for potential leads, veiw websites posting those leads. I think this is the phone that will serve my purpose with out a contract with a carrier that for some reason keeps double billing me for apps on my plan.I can get a prepaid plan for voice and data for about $75.00.
i cant figure out how to save a picture from a message i got it to save to my files but i cant find my files.

It looks nice to me. It comes in blue rather than black. I bought it mainly for looks, the QWERTY keyboard was a bonus for texting. If you like to text with a good looking phone, I'd recommend it.

You can set the camera mode to silent with it. It probably has to do with the carrier's OS if AT&T phones can't do this.
ive owned this phone for about a month now and i have to say i am not too impressed. this phone would have been impressive about 5 years ago. this phone masquerades as a feature-rich phone with it's blackberry-ish layout, but it's a basic phone beyond that. for a brand new phone in 2009 at this price range it is surprisingly lacking on features that have become pretty much standard on phones costing half the price. no stereo bluetooth. no voice dialing. no video recording. no sd card slot. only 16mb storage, cant set anything over 300kb as a ringtone, no 3G, can't change the message tone, measly 1mp camera...and the features lacking goes on and on. it would be an acceptable phone at $50, but definitely not for the $100 range. If you want features, you can do alot better for the price. look to the virgin shuttle, for example. the only reason to own this phone is if you want a querty keyboard/large screen/blackberry-ish looking phone to impress your friends.
roze, 10 Aug 2009can anyone tell me how to silence the camera? I did go to camera settings and its not working..help!you cannot silence the camera. you can only change it's tone. even if you turn your phone to silent mode, the camera will still make a tone when you use it. so you cant take people's photos without them hearing the tone.
Cedric, 12 Aug 2009So... Can you get on the internet with it?yes, you can get on the internet with this phone.
kaitlyn, 12 Aug 2009im getting this phone but i have a question about it..... can u record music then set them... moreringtones are limited to 300kb. so unless your song falls into that category - which is very unlikely because thats not alot of data - the phone won't let you use it for a ringtone.
LIZ, 15 Aug 2009does this phone have an expandable memory slot?there is no memory slot of any type on this phone.
