I was given one of these as a present recently. At first if looked the paart, smart modern, touch screen etc. then i set it up to use. That is when the problems started. Thetouch screen was over sensitive, and the qwerty board disappears when I 'm in the middle of a call and I have to input a number, 'press 1 for... ' press 2 for...' you get the drift. Now the phone sits at home and i use my godd old reliable Nokia. Where would we be without the Nokia!? Regards, Less
