A phone that works as a phone
I got this phone because I was tired of my old phone's touchy touch screen and touchy keypad. This phone needs you to actually hit the keys to call and doesn't answer itself, butt dial, or hang up because you grabbed it wrong! It makes calls and texts--all I want. It does have internet capability, but I am a Luddite and don't ever access the internet on my phone.I love it!

Nokia 6790 Surge Is A Superb Messaging Device
The QWERTY keyboard on the Surge is very easy to use. It is one of the best features of the phone. The worst feature is the 5 way navigation key. It is too small and is difficult to control the push function without having it activate one of the direction controls.
If you do not want a touch screen phone this is an excellent choice. Once you figure out that you can use the two softkeys for most of what requires an "enter" from the navigation key this is an easy to use phone.
»Message button - It is assignable from the Own Key menu but stock it takes you to the message program.
»Own Key is also assignable in the Own Key menu and will take you directly to one of your favorite phone functions or programs.
»Menu button is not assignable and brings up a list of all the open programs.
»Camera is a basic 2 mp shooter with usual range of adjustable settings. No flash is available and video is 320 x 240, which also happens to be the resolution of the viewfinder/display. Night mode, sequence mode, self-timer, white balance, color tone are all adjustable.
»FM radio, if you have a headset plugged in to act as an antenna, is available.
» XM radio is also available but you will want to have this on an unlimited data plan as it will stream the music over the provider network. XM, no wifi and a pay per kilobyte data plan is a recipe for disaster.
» Standard programs include a calendar, converter, calculator, Quickoffice, voice recorder, clock, RealPlayer version S60 cvs_cays221_20081120, settings wizard and Adobe PDF Reader LE v1.5
Look and Feel
»The Surge is a plastic phone and feels plasticky. The glossy black is a magnet for fingerprints and micro-scratches show up well. The back is a semi-gloss plastic and does a better job of hiding prints and small scratches. It will look dull at the contact points when it is worn. Replacements are plentiful and inexpensive on eBay.
»The display is well recessed so unless you insist on throwing it in your purse with the keys it will remain looking like new for a long time.
»The cheap feel does not extend to the QWERTY keyboard. That has nice, firm, responsive keys and after you get used to where everything is it is a snap to use.
» Battery life is quite good.
» It grabs a signal quite well. I've had no problem with it going to zero bars during a phone call. The data connection is 3G and has been known to drop to one bar.
»The display is great for indoor use. outside it is a challenge.
» It is a fairly decent game playing phone. Snake III plays well along with trivia games and other sorts of java based offerings. I use gamemobile.co.uk to take care of my gamimng needs. Thwe Nokia store will also have many offerings for this S60 v3 Feature Pack2 device.
» You will not confuse this with the E75, a high end device with the same OS. You will be able to load Map v3.03, the version with lifetime turn by turn navigation, something the E75 can not do.
I used mine for about a week before moving on to a device with wifi, a necessity for me. If it had wifi I would still be using it.Read full review

Great overall phone. wouldn't send it back but feel like I was taken.
Phone is great now that I'm used to it. When I received it it had an off brand battery in it that would sometimes work and most times cut phone completely off. I couldn't keep it on long enough to use it. I ordered a new Nokia battery and it hasn't cut off at all. Also I don't think it was a new phone. The little navi keys below the screen are worn off .
