Call and Text Centric

twitoot has owned it for less than month before publishing this review

Great for smaller hands, well placed mic & speaker, easy to replace parts, responsive buttons, well placed buttons for qwerty use. Sliders and iPhones are my two most hated phone types. I havefound very little to dislike about this phone though, and like it better than the LG Rumour. With the Rumour, I had issues with the reception, no clue why, but this one seems to be better. Just trying to figure out how to put my contacts from android to this phone.

Easy to take apart, easy to put back together, very solid parts including the motherboard. Took 2+ minutes of being in a cup of 60 degree F until the phone glitched. Took 5hrs drying time in rice until phonewas functional again. DID NOT SHORT.

Has access to user dictionaries, offers spanish and english with VirginMobile. The slider keyboard is a heavy factor in this decison. Would rate '4' if slider was not included.
