it has so many glitches in it! The camera takes forever to load and then nothing happens usually. The scrren fades out for no apparent reason or will sometimes have these coloured vertical lines all over it. The buttons mysteriously switch around on me so that the on button is not the off button and vice versa. Also, when I send a txt the phone automatically restarts itself for no reason. Do not buy the phone...chosse a different one...but not the Samsung r500, that one sux too!

Not for Music Lovers

Reviewed on Thursday November 13, 2008 by , Toronto
I was attracted to this phone because of its memory card slot and the frontside music player buttons. However, for a number of reasons, I am very disappointed with it as an MP3 player. Here's why:

1. Although it has frontside controls, you have to open the phone up to run the music player. You can turn the camera on, but you can't turn the music player on without going through the phone's menu system.

2. The music player takes a while to load, and you have to reload it each time. This phone can only run one program at a time, so you can't just keep it in the background.

3. Although it uses a microSD card that you can plug into your computer, you can't simply add music to the card and hit play. You need to download a telus music player application to your PC and add all your music into that player first. Like I really need another MP3 player on my computer!

4. When listening to music, you can't see what time it is. That's just pathetic. What, I need to buy a watch now?

5. The music application doesn't remember what you were listening to. So each time you reload the application, you need to forward your way to where you left off. If you want to listen to a book, forget it.

6. The handsfree microphone is poorer quality sound than others I have used previously. (Though I do like the fact that I can use any headphones with a 3.5mm plug.)

7. I never thought I would really care about ring tones, but I can't find any on this phone that I like at all. I guess they want you to buy some.

Overall, this phone is meant to help sell MP3s and ringtones, and not really intended to be the phone of choice for people that already have music libraries. Better software would make all the difference, and I suspect that better software was available from LG, but Telus is too focused on incremental revenue and not enough on basic user preferences and needs.
