It's a good phone but it's not reliable. I just had to get a new one since the last one I had broke last Tuesday (I had it for two months). I turned it off before a job interview, turned it back on and the screen would only light up after that. No home screen or anything. Sprint thought it was the battery, wasn't, got a new phone out of it.
Past three phones I've had have either been free or less than 20 bucks. They have been the most reliable phones for me. I spend a little bit more money on a nice looking phone and breaks within two months. And I lost all my contacts since freshman year of HS.
Go figure. Since when did phones start storing numbers on the phone instead of a sim card. Such bullshit.
You have to change the option so it stores on the sim instead of just the phone. Or you can save it to where it gets backed up on yout srping account on the web.
Looking at getting a new phone and as my Mother will be paying I can't have the most expensive contract on the market.
Thoughts on getting the HTC Desire now? A contract i've seen is 18 months long, think the Desire will be fine for that amount of time? I suppose I could always sell it during the contract and pick up another phone sim free...
I'd highly advise against the Torch, at least until they patch up some of the current glitches. I know some people who work at a logistics company that ships out RIM products across Canada and the amount of returns they've gotten on the Torch phone has apparently been heavy. The same thing happened with the Tour model (which eventually conformed to being a pretty solid product) but its not uncommon for the initial batches of phones or any piece of technology for that matter to have fixable issues...
As for myself, I'm currently kickin the Bold 9700 which has been worth every penny I paid for it... Thus far
