This phone is horrible and it does NOT have GPS I'm on my fourth one of this phone. The only good thing I can say is that I got all the replacements for free.

I've had this phone for a little over a year, and it gets gradually worse. Mine has begun to shut itself off, the interface is confusing, and i agree, it doesnt play ringtones for text messages, like it says it will. Avoid this phone if possible. It is durable, but it's not a good phone to have?

Ultimate Durablity

Ive had this phone for just over a year and it still works great, except for the speaker phone and camera function. This phone is far and away the most durable phone I've ever had from sprint. The hard plastic case is nearly indestructible (unless hit by a hammer) and the screen has no color fade or scratches on it. In case of emergency can be used as a rock to throw and should be able to still make a phone call! Other than that its not much more than a house phone.

Honestly, why did Sprint have a phone THIS horrible? I just don't understand..... There are no good features in this phone. It is worst that terrible.

Peice of crap

This phone is a big steamy pile of poo! Like the other writter said, it wont play a ringtone to tell you if you have a text message, even though its supposed to be able to. Its latest trick is shutting itself off..thats pretty convenient! I can think of 50 other phines I'd rather have at this same price the way SPRINT SUCKS!

I like this phone a lot. However, I, too, have noticed that there seems to be very few downloads available for this model. Most sites don't even list it. You have to remember not to put your fingers on the place where the antenna is located near the hinge.
