Bought this phone because it was the tiniest at the time. Nice fashion statement. But that's where it ends. Reception was always a problem. (Low signal, No signal, dropped calls)Phone never had any physical problems. Dropped many times and it still works. Took the SIM card out and put it into a N-Gage, Best move I made! This phone now sits in a drawer waiting to be used as an Emergency phone. Less

Okay

Good design, small, light, great battery life. Major problem is that it doesn't work alot of the time. Apparently you can't EVER drop this phone or it starts acting up. Shame, I like the size and style alot, but I need something that works consistently.

Very bad performance

This phone works half the time. I even had to repair it once...

Craptastic

This phone was cool for the first day, even that is pushing it. I can't get reception anywhere in my house, it cuts in and out at work and in my truck. Overall its a piece.

Reliable enough..

Gotta say that I've had this phone for a while, the battery is awsome, but the reception is crap at times, and mine likes to cut out on people but other than that its decent

Piece of Shit

It's interface is good (Nokia Bias here). Crap Reception. It's good to remind you for Ebay stuff. Basically this phone is a paper weight.

No or Bad Reception

This phone failed me when I was in most need of a cell phone. I was unable to get any reception or signal in the downtown area of Vancouver. It was frustrating. I gave it up and quit Rogers altogether....!
