Score 4.0/10
Good points:
Looks good. Decent music player
Bad points:
No matter how many times you reset the 'phone, after a day or two the external keys start operating when they are supposed to be locked. This alters the ring menu and results in a lot of missed calls.

Mandy , Scottish Borders Basic text and chat user

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Small, quite easy navigation (although too many folders). Fell in water and recovered after drying out so impressed with that!
Bad points:
Can't seem to get it to link to computer. Even with the disk and a data cable. Also freezes about once a week. I have to take the battery out to 'reboot' before it works again. Also, why so many folders for things like photos? Have to hunt around for pictures and music saved to phone. Why can't it be one folder for pictures, one for music, one for videos?

You can see the name of the person calling without having to open. Cool images on cover when shut.
