HTC "Smart Phone" should be a smarter cell phone. This phone is nothing but a pain in my butt!!! The only reason i got it, was because at Tmobile they a bunch of cell phones where you have to pay an extra fee each month just for having it, even if you didnt want those extra features, or cell phones with the regular number keys, or basically cheap phones. I must have the qwerty keyboard on my phone, since thats what ive gotten used to, and i absolutely love and prefer. This phone does have the qwerty keyboard, if you dont like phones with these keys because your not used to them, trust me i wasnt when i ot my first qwerty keyboard phone either, and it really pissed me of, but its very easy to get used to, especailly if you type a lot on the computer as it is. Now thats all i like! This phone, was the one smart phone that i didnt have to pay no extra fees for each month. I can upgrade my plan if i ever do wish to use them, but i dont use my phone as a computer, and dont need the extras. The screen is big, and easy to view, which is always a plus. It also has an mp3 player, windows media, on it, and comes with two games: solitaire, and bubble breaker, which arent demo versions, thank god. You can also transfer files from your computer to your phone, like i did with music. However, unless im dumb and cant figure it out, lol, i dont think that you can use your music as your ring tones. i dont know if any phone can even do that, i just wish they could. The home screen is made out like a computer screen, with the start button on the bottom left corner. You can choose different layouts for the home screen. The text messages are laid out cool too! when you open your text messages, all the people you've been texting,until you delete those texts, are in a list by name. Click the name of the person or text you want to read, aND it opens up almost like an IM. So if you get a text with more than one page, instead of opening one, reading it, closing it to open the next page, its all right there infront of you. your sent messages there too. This is extremely useful, seeing as any other phone ive ever had, if someone sent me a 3 page text, the texts would recieve out of order, so id have to try to puzzle it together, to make it make sense. My favorite, and most useful feature, is that i can check how charged my battery is. Just looking at how many bars you have left, always puts me in a situation where i not home, and phone dies. It tells you what percent of battery life you have left! Other features it has on the phone are, camera, video recorder, communication manager, wifi, device management, email, task manager, internet applications, instant messaging,internet explorer, tzones, voice command, java application, adobe reader, office mobile, and your regular applications most or all cell phones have like speed dial, calculator, etc. The phone is red and black, which i love the colors, but if you dont you can always buy different color ( skins are they called? or phone cover things? ) It also comes with its on carrying case-belt clip. But i dont use mine because then i cant hear it go off. The speaker, apparently, is on the back of the phone, so you have to keep phone faced down in order to hear it go off, which means you cant see if it lights up, like i do, for occasions i dont hear it. Usually ill see phone light up telling me my phone went off, but cant do that with this one when its face down. I also hate how fat the phone is. Yes it is a slider phone, but its the fattest slider phone ive ever seen. I usually keep my phone in my back pocket, because when im out, i dont listen for phone if its in my purse, or if im at home, i dont want to carry it in my hands whereever i go. This phone i cant keep in my pocket at all, due to its size. When im wearing my basketball shorts, its a pain to even have in those big pockets, because it is very heavy. As im walking, it swings all over the place in my basketball shorts, hitting into things i walk by. Being so heavy, it makes for a huge crash landing. Everyone has to have dropped there phone atleast once in their life, most of us many times, but me, i do it daily. When i first dropped this phone, omg i thought it had to be broken, because of how loud it drops due to weight. The bad thing is, iv dropped my mine walk walking, where it drops right where my foot is taking its next step, kicking my phone across the room, which makes a really loud bang!!! The final bad thing about this phone, is it processes very very slowly. When i first got it and didnt have anything loaded onto it, it was slow. I never turn my phone off, because turning it on, is nerve wrecking, seeing as how takes forever to get to home screen, then when it does, instead of saying your cell phone service, it says searching, wait a moment, then when you think you finally have service, it says home service. Meaning not connected to your provider yet. Eventually it will say your cell phone service, but during that wait, you cant do anything on your phone, cuz it just freezes.
