Customer Review: Basic

Its a phone. It makes calls, it sends text messages, and can even take some pictures. If you're sharp, you can upload a custom ringtone to the phone.

Can be pretty slow...typing a text message takes a while, since the text doesn't show up for half a second to a second. Address book searching and scrolling is similar; don't press a button a few times to scroll down one thing, you will end up at the bottom.

Customer Review: No bluetooth or USB connection

I learned the hard way that not all phones have bluetooth. I went to sync up my phone book with my computer and... hey, where's the bluetooth?! So, I though, ok, no problem, I'll just sync over the USB connection. On a mac, that doesn't work either! The mac iSync program doesn't support this model. So, if you don't mind not being able to sync your phone numbers, this phone might work fine for you, otherwise, get something with bluetooth.
