Chocolates not created equal.

from Amazon
I had my phone for two or three years now and love it. I have dropped it plenty of times, it is scratched but works great. It has also gotten wet a few times and phone has managed to survive. My husband has had horrible luck with his mint and later white chocolate, perhaps I just got lucky with mine.

Pro: Cute, Shiny (until you kill it), once your used to the keypad it's very easy to text Con: buttons are kind of stiff, battery life is Bad, once you drop it it starts to have difficulties Etc. I have had this phone for 2 years now and i hate it! If your one of those people that only get like 1 year plans maybe it will work out but i hate this phone! I got it before alot of people had it and yeah i really liked it and i got attention. As the year went on i dropped it and the keypad would act up, once the screen is scratched it's really hard to see, the battery sucks (i haven't gotten a new battery like i should have) But my phone will die and then i'll wait a couple of seconds and it will work again, it's ridiculous! Oh yes, i can't call people because it will just die while i'm talking. I never figured out how to use the speaker (if there is one) and where you hear it can be really loud. I'm not going to continue on about how much i can't wait to get a new phone, thank god my contract is almost over, i hope you make the right decision and don't get this phone!! I'm not lying either, or trying to persuade you not to buy it, i just thought i'd warn people out there that this phone really does suck. Less

WORSE PHONE!!!

I bought this phone last year and HATE it.... people can't hear me on it and i can't hear them..... the screen went all crazy and is fuzzy.... it calls random people... my contacts are all messed up... don't buy this phone!!!!

BEST PHONE EVER

Not only does it look good, but it is the best phone i have ever had. It is very dependable!!!. Before this phone i had a pink razor and it sucks compared to this one. This is a GREAT phone to get.

Before I go out buy a phone I always read reviews about it first I had this phone for 7 months now and I like it... enough. Firstly this is the only "white phone" by bell that I find acceptable in looks because all the other "white" phones are not completely white for one and most of them look very ugly in white when they look great in other colours. Pros: Sleek looking - the front, back, speaker at the top, keys, number pads are all very sleek Slides very smooth - I had a Kyocera slider before and when I used that one I have to always make sure it's locked in place. However with the chocolate its very smooth Display - very bright easy to read, good colours Touch pad - VERY SENSATIVE i like it because it responds quickly Self explanatory - I did not have to read the manual to use this phone. Its simple, I found everything I wanted to find within minutes of navigating The phone even has a icon glossary in its hard drive. Memory Status - I liked being able to tell how much room I have left on my phone for downloading from the internet or from my computer All their applications work, I never had a lag problem with any of the software. I had unlimited internet but obviously because its a phone its slow compared to a computer. AND the box it came in is to DIE for Cons: Compared to my Kyocera (which was 2 phones ago) the old phone had WAY more features. The chocolate has no voice recognition calling When sending texts if you slide close the phone it will stop sending msgs mid way and there is no way to default out of that programming. So make sure your msg is sent before you close your phone The end button has caused most people to complain you can't hang up on people but I find I just slide close and open the phone to hang up. Touch pad - VERY SENSATIVE some people find it annoying Charging / Ear phone Jack - is the same one which contributes to its look but you can't use a wired head set if you are charging the phone No Memory Card - The phone ihave is the older model which doesn't have the expandable memory. Easy to Scratch - I throw my phone around a lot and i change the accessories on it every couple of days so I scratched up the face almost immediately after getting it but when the back light is on you can not notice it at all. Heats up - If you use your cell phone to talk for hours like myself it does warm up. If that bothers you use a land line Generally I enjoyed using this phone it doesn't shame me to pull it out of my bag Less
