The Tap!!!

I bought this phone about a month ago, really liked the size, appearance and weight of the phone.  However, since the third day I got it, I have had nothing but problems.  I do not have access to instant messaging, (three help desk tickets already, with no resolution in sight!!!)  The battery does not take a charge. I was sent a new battery last week, still doesn't work.  I now have a new phone en route.  What happened to the days when you had a problem with the phone, you could go to a t-mobile store, and as long as it was under warranty, it would be replaced??  They have them in stock, I guess t-mobile does not believe in customer satisfaction.  When I went in to the t-mobile store - to buy the phone, I was helped immediately, when I went in with a problem, I was pointed to a phone to contact CS, and left to fend for myself.  (I could have done that at home).  Aside from what I have already mentioned, my main problem with the phone is the automatic lock, (which I also asked for assistance with at the Springdale, OH store), I was referred to my owners manual.  When attempting to contact my voice mail, (home or office), as soon as the call is answered, the screen locks,  then you have to keep tapping the keyboard to enter your passwords. When you finally get the keyboard up, you accidently hit the wrong digit, and have to start over!!!  I have had many contracts with t-mobile,...

Great Phone!

I really love this phone!  At first it turned me off with the screen but when I started using a stylus it made it alot easier to use !  And having a memory card with my music let's me have a more personel ring tune!  This is more phone than I would have been able to afford !

Is good but so lock password

 I got this phone yesterday, and liked the shape, size, color, feel. The abilty to turn into a QWERTY keyboard is a plus but the con is just that the lock feature doesn't have a password which could be helpful. The passwords are to be able to access the phone at turn on, and/or access the SIM card.

All in all, it's a GREAT phone! not a productive as some of the higher priced pda's. If you have a flip phone and are wanting to upgrade this is the way to go!. touchscreen is way better than the iphone. texting is way easier and faster. scrolling through pictures uploaded off the comuter can be really slow. music player is functional. camera is nice. looks great. the menu is very clear and easy to navigate.I dig it and I think i'll stick with it!

4 days w/ tap

 Works quite well holds up to 8 gig on card. A great bang for buck. The browser works ok  and the data plan is a deal. Wish browser had better resolution but it works quite well that makes up for that. The pc connect software is terrible I just load my music onto a 8 gig card with one of those SD cards. The camera is good. the touch interface works great can text quite fast with it. The music player won't show album art has a equalizer and sounds pretty good with mini usb headphones. The gps worked alright in town.I am happy with purchase phone works quite well.
