How much phone do you want?
If all you want is a simple to use and durable phone, this serves well, but don't let that tough=simple moniker fool you. This phone deserves more than a passing glance.
Rugged-milspec, meaning it would be functional in a war zone. You can drop it in a bucket of water while its in the middle of a call and simply pull it out, shake it off and carry on with your conversation. As long as the ports are covered, it can handle water up to 3 feet deep. Dust is no problem either. Dropped your phone while working on a roof? Its not likely to do this one much harm. Every bit as tough as they claim and its fairly simple to use for basic functions.
Take pictures and video, play music, use a bluetooth earpiece or sync it to your car audio system, you can even tether your computer to it and use it as a cell network modem linking through the bluetooth radio or the USB cord. One of the best ergonomic features is the easily accessible micro sd (up to 8GB) slot on the side rather than under the battery. I'm able to pull that card out of the phone and insert it into my computer (via an SD adapter that comes with the micro-SD card) and transfer any pictures or video I've taken with the phone directly onto the computer rather than trying to sync the phone to the computer. This is a great work around if you're not computer savvy and just want to get the pictures out of it, much like any digital camera or pda. Same thing for putting the podcasts and music files on the phone, simply transfer them directly to the SD card and then reinsert the card into the phone. Do ask about the types of files this phone can handle. I loaded my 8GB card with a passle of audio files in mp3 format only to discover the phone's software didn't recognize them. What's up with that Verizon? I haven't tried that in a while, could be the updated software will handle it. Hope, hope!! Don't expect it to be a ruggedized iPhone with its access to the App Store, but the Navigator provided by Verizon and the very limited music player are easy to use. As a mobile web browsing device, the tiny screen and the 16 key keyboard aren't supposed to compete with QWERTY keyboard sliders or the touch screen phones, but it will allow you to get that web page up.
Features-A little bulkier than most clamshells owing to its ruggedized shell, especially with an extended life battery. (good for 2 days of normal use without a charge) 1.2 megapixal pix and flix camera and the camera's flash also serves as a flashlight, speach recognition, (it will take verbal instructions so you can dial a contact by pushing a single button and saying, "Call" and the contact's name) intuitive text t9 typing, web browser, global positioning system receiver (GPS) which I use with Verizon's navigator, an electronic compass, (in case you get lost in the urban jungle) speaker phone, Push To Talk radio (PTT) capable, . Its great for audio, but I don't recommend it for surfing the web on its tiny screen, however, if you do have a need for a data connection I'd recommend checking out thestreamcenter.com/pda for live radio feeds from any English speaking country around the world. I also recommend getting the charging cradle, its much easier to drop it in the cradle which has two contacts that marry up to the contacts on the back of the battery, than to plug the charging adapter into its covered port. For some reason I find it difficult to get that adapter plugged into the phone's port. You'll love this phone.Read full review

Small & weightless
They were excellent on the shipping !!! I got it very fast The sound has been ok I can hear people & people can hear me fine ! It just doesn't pick up at all when I am in the basement or in more closed in area's the reception is really bad !!! The phone is very small & it does what I need it to do just fine & the pix are not bad at all either, over all I think the phone is good.I just think that $ 80.00 was alittle to high for what you are getting. But overall it's been a good little phone !!!
