I have had the phone for 2 years now.
It has been dropped alot, and its survived.
I spend alot of time at the barn (horses), so my phone
has been through alot.. its still kicking.

However. I hate the phone.
When i talk on it for a while, the buttons start to get really hot.
Camera sucks... when i e-mail the pics from my phone to my computer, the pictures are horrible.. poor quality.
The speaker phone is aweful. It cuts in and out all the time, so i have never been able to use it.
And it does this crazy thing in the winter when its cold out... when i close my phone.. it shuts off and turns back on... so i have to close it really really really gentlely.
Ring tones are not very clear.
There is just tonns of things i can't stand about this phone.
The only reason i have had it for 2 years is because the phone i had before this one broke before my plan was up, and i was told(by telus) that when i got this phone, if it broke, telus wasn't going to let me get another one..

Data unfrendly

Yes you can take pictures but there're not yours [service provider] gets a royalty when you wish to download them for printing you must sign up for internet access because you can't get a data cable that allows you to interface with your computer.

Yes it has a voice recorder but you can't download those files either.

Yes it's your phone book but there's no way to download/upload the data base to you computer for editing or to use with other software like MS Office.

If I knew this I wouldn't have I got the phone .

The phone is NOT FREE it's a BONUS for signing a long term contract.

Other than that I don't find it any better than any other phones I've used.
