I have had this phone for almost two years now and have been quite impressed with it. I have used the mp3 player function while doing menial tasks at work, waiting on people, sunbathing, and many other times. This function does run down the battery significantly, as does the radio feature, but you can still get several hours of entertainment from a good battery charge. I bought a separate 2 gig memory card for the phone at Wal-Mart and have had no trouble keeping plenty of good music, ringtones and other sound clips on my phone as well as pictures without maxing out the card. The phone comes with a USB cable so that you can hook up to your computer and download new content or backup what you already have. I have found this feature easy to use and priceless. I nearly drowned my phone at one point and actually lost it once. I was able to plug in the replacement and retrieve all of my saved data. Love it!
