Ive had this phone for the past few months now and it does the job for me for now but there are a few valuable options that htis phone lacks...A, how do you make a PDA Phone and not equip it with blue tooth?!! B, it does not have a WiFi card. C the system is locked*even when you unlock thephone* to only work on the GSM band of the previous service provider...for instance my phone was bought and used through AT&T wireless networks and the 900gsm network, and now it will not change band from 900 over to 1900! a few minor gliches like that you will never find in Motorola nad Nokia phones!
