Customer Review: AMAZING!!!!

I have had this phone for about 2 1/2 years now. I changed from the RAZR. This past weekend I was not paying attention and WASHED AND DRIED the phone that was in my pant pocket powered on! To my amazement it still works just fine!!!!! I have had it slip out of my pocket before and hit the ground from standing level, but WOW I cannot beleive that it is still working after a full wash and dry cycle!!!!!!

Customer Review: Still works fine.

- It more or less works like it's supposed to.

- I like the sturdy build quality...doesn't have that cheap plastic-y feel

- I find that I need to recharge every 48 hrs regardless of how long a talk (which isn't much).

- I wish it had a more standard audio jack...the dongle/adapter adds bulk and i found that the lowest volume is too loud, so I have to use ear phones with a built in volume control...thus the one star deduction. At least the mp3 feature exists :)

It's still the best phone I've had to date, so... 4 stars.
