I just got this phone and like most of it, except small keys on keyboard. I use a q-tip & also downloaded swype keyboard. It is much easier now. The email setup is not working, but soon I will figure it out. It may only want a google address, not a yahoo (since google has contract with this company)? Any suggestions? K.C. Less

Just not powerful enough for Android

Pros: Performs basic phone functions without any trouble. Cons: Disappointing battery life, very poor GPS chip, slow processor means long load times and slow application performance, touchscreen not very responsive, ringer and speakerphone are quieter than they should be

ive had this phone for 4 days. for 150 dollars with WIND ( 0 dollars on the windtab) this phone is amazing. it has full android powers and can do just about anything any other android can do. one AND ONLY ONE problem people might have with this phone is the keyboard, if u have big fingers the keyboard will be difficult to use but i think u can get keyboards from the android market. the market has so much more free apps than the apple and blackberry markets! Less

I bought this phone . Its good but only one thing bothers me is the battery life is soo low. its brand new but battery dies without using it. Wind mobile should have checked this issue before selling it. Customers have just 30 min to judge its performance . as per their policy .which is totally unfair .
