Hmmm shame this phone is stuck on at&t, our secretary's son needs a new feature phone....

Quite true. The Burst, even being a budget smartphone, is still very competitive, even with pricier models. Pantech has some very good phones in their home Asian markets

Why can't anyone make any new keyboard slider phone that isn't a piece of crap? Mine is 18 months old and it's way better than this or anything I've seen come out in the past 6 months.
