LOVE THIS PHONE

This phone is awesome. i love everything about it. it has amazing features. the display is great. the only thing i would change is that the sound wouldnt be fuzzy when volume is up all the way and that when u send a text message u dont have to go to contacts to select the persons number but otherwise the phone is well worth is money

The best I've had

I have a 2 GB memory card and i have about 200 songs that I can listen to through headphones with this phone just like an Ipod. Im on Myspace and Facebook a lot and I take soo many pictures for posting and you could never tell that the pictures were taken with a cell phone. People literally think its a $300 digital camera. I posted a lot of videos on youtube. But you can only transfer videos and pictures and MP3 with the SD card, Which is a GREAT feature! it has a great bright flash that helps a lot both video and still shots at night. The length of the video is unlimited.
This phone is better than any of the razrs. The only bad thing is that its not as slick looking as any of the new phones today, but in my opinion, it has the best features a phone could have.

could be better

the only way to get custom ring tones on this phone is to have some one send it to you via text msg the phone looks and feels cook but the battery life sucks and the fact that when u send a pic or video msg the phone won't all u to do any thing else really sucks

Nice looking phone, but...

The phone looks nice. It is very slim with a clean design. The speakerphone button on the side is a little difficult to activate. The main screen is large and the picture quality is great. My only real grip with this phone is the bluetooth. If you use bluetooth and like your mp3 as ringtones, this phone is not for you. You need additional devices to access the bluetooth, you need to store your mp3 files on a sd card (purchased seperatly), and you can't make your mp3 files as ringtones. My husband bought me this phone. He bought himself a much cheaper phone. His bluetooth readily works and so his phone plays the mp3 ringtones I like and mine only uses the ones on the phone file, unless I wanted to purchase new ones. I am returning this phone to get a krzr.

I bought this phone a few weeks ago and my wife liked it so much she got one too. The external MP3 controls are great, you don't bump them on/off when listening to music.
The display is excelent.
Battery life is good for such a small battery.

Gripes:
The menus are not as friendly as LG.
I haven't figured out how to save sounds as ring tones.
There is about a 2 second shutter lag time on the camera making it nearly useless for pictures of anything not stationary. There is a digital zoom, but only in the video camera mode, not the camera.
Takes great stills and videos. No time limit on videos.

It's good but not great

The phone has alot of great qualities. A bright screen, great camera, a flash, decent ringtones, slim, appealing, and overall just darn good.

However, there are a few things I don't like. One, when you turn the phone on silent, your text message sound will still go off unless you go into the setting, then the sounds, volumes, text messages, and turn it down, on vibrate, or off. It should all go off when you turn the phone on silent. Second, the user manuel isn't too helpful.

Other than these few, the phone is good

I have been interested in this phone for a while and finally decided to invest in it. I considered it to be one of Alltel's best phones and well...I was not disappointed. This phone owns up with the likes of the RAZR V3m and the KRZR k1m. The feel of it is good and so is the style. The overall call quality and signal strength that I have experienced so far is superb. I haven't gotten a chance to mess with the bluetooth or the memory card but I can say that it has the BEST 1.3 MP camera I have ever used. Hope that helps!
