Up's n' Down's

This phone, like anything in life, has good and bad.
The good: the price, I purchased this phone for 100 dollars and it came with a 50 dollar credit, so I didn't have to pay for my text/WAP browsing package until two months later. The keyboard is good, and the speaker for the mp3 player is very loud, though I only use it with headphones.
The bad: can't multitask, by that I mean if you're listening to an mp3 and receive a text message, you have to stop the music to read/respond. Also, and I've read this in many other reviews, when I'm typing out a text message it often enters in the symbols assigned to the letters, when I haven't hit the symbol key first (not really a big deal). The phone's camera isn't so great, but what do you expect for such a low price? Can't record videos, can't even watch videos, but again, the price is right.
Bottom line: load your favorite tunes onto a microSD card and this thing (almost) replaces your mp3 player (kinda). If you're like me and go through phones like socks, and don't want to spend too much, go with this phone because even if it ends up in the washing machine it won't be the end of the world.
