This is the best phone ever produced, EVER.

Pro: This is the best phone ever made. Con: Eventually the flip wears out and will not close, I've seen more than one cracked screen as well. Personally I've had no problems but I'm careful with my stuff. Using experience: 5 years This is the best looking phone on the market unless you buy a razor, which are ridiculously overpriced. Ericsson got it right when they made this phone and since then they have added useless features that just suck battery life. This is the ultimate minimalist phone with voice dial, good phonebook, vibrate, and the only two games you would ever need (Tetris and Solitaire). I will use this until it breaks and then buy another, and another, and another. They sell on Ebay for less than thirty bucks. Less
