My last phone was a silver Razr V3. My fiance had the same phone but in pink. I never had a problem with mine, had it for 1.5-2 years. It took some beatings too. I believe she had an issue, but it was only once in the course of 1.5-2 years and it was just a matter of getting a new phone.

My current phone is a silver EnV. I've had it since March or so and it has taken a couple falls and it has not have one problem. For a camera phone I love the camera. I take a pic while driving and txt it to my photobucket. I travel all over the country so this really helps me take pics of the scenery.

My fiance also has an EnV. Also had it since March, she has the orange one. The inside down button failed, got a new phone, 'P' button fail on the new one in a day or less, still have to get another. I know my phone has taken more abuse than hers, but she got the bad ones I guess.

Those are all with Verizon.


My work phone is with AT&T and is a Razr V3. Had it since January. No problems but no real abuse to it.

I got a Nokia 6210 last week, so far I really like it, a lot nicer, lighter and smaller than my last phone. Only cost me $20 and I could still use my existing car charger. I woulda liked a camera phone, but couldn't justify the cost.

Dont they give out some cheap ass camera funs for free when you renew or get a plan? My Razr was free, but a nice steamy pile of shit

don't get a juke... the buttons and swivel parts get full of grit and don't work well. after a couple months the damn thing was making calls by itself and ringing for no reason... they replaced the phone with another of the same I've had this one longer without the phantom calls but it is still starting to stick from the grit.

i have an IPhone 3G.

best entertainment device i've ever used. struggles with being a Phone though. (dropping calls periodically and stuff)

i suspect mine has a hardware issue which is causing the lackluster performance in calls.

I have the iPhone 3G as well.

It was well worth the price. I agree with SuperD, though, it sucks at being a phone sometimes (lack of simple features such as picture messaging). I don't have many problems with dropped calls (software update 2.1 fixed most of those problems).

Im also pissed that the worlds most advanced cell phone does not have turn by turn GPS navigation because Apple doesn't want it to.

It has some cool apps that can measure your cars g-force and estimate HP an 1/4 mile times. It basically has a G-Tech performance meter built into it. Another cool app that is in the works is an OBDII code reader and simple scan tool. This could be very useful.

Its expensive to use, though. I pay around $105 a month for 900 minutes, unlimited data, and a simple text messaging plan.

Ive got a blackjack II and now its a huge peice of junk, its got a huge crack in the screen, all the way across. and the whole bottom half of the screen is broken, its just blackk and multi colored stripes. Im gunna see if i can get a new one. I got this one for free a while back when switching from cell one to at&t. besides the broken screen thing the phone is awsome, the only phone i can say is better is the iphone but im to hard on phones to have that one.

so you want them to give you a replacement because of your negligence and misuse?


let me know how that works out for you.

no wi-fi but the sprint network is pretty darn quick. I usually load pages within a second or two which is the same amount of time it takes my dsl.
