Nice basic phone

We just got outfitted at work with the LG 285 (on Telus), and my few comments are:
1. Battery life is exceptional! I charged it fully last Thurs. and up until now (6 days later) it has only dropped to 3/4 battery bars. The phone is always on, and I spent a few hours programming in phone numbers, investigating all of the menus and features, took some pictures, and transferred some wallpaper images and MP3s! Really impressive battery performance.
2. T9 input for texting oddly defaults to OFF, so you have to constantly switch to T9 as your input method.
3. Transferring MP3s to this phone by bluetooth works fine, but you won't be allowed to use them as a ringtone. The built-in ringtones are terrible, so Telus is hoping you'll buy some decent ones from them.
4. Nice big buttons, and, overall, easy to use and carry around. The earpiece volume is clear and loud.
