Good model? Bad model?
I've read that the battery life is really good on this model, and that it's relatively durable...
I wonder if there's a way to make it play nice with Verizon so I can just put it on my dad's account?? Not a big deal either way, but I have no experience with Cingular GoPhone service either, and I don't know if it's any good or if it sucks...
Been looking at some online reviews of the phone. Recurring comments involve the very good battery life, the good durability (apparently a 20-foot drop doesn't even faze it), and the good reception. Recurrent complaints are from idiots whining about the monophonic ringtones and complaining that they can't play their MP3s on it, can't take photos with it, and that it has 'only' a 100-entry phonebook.
All I care is that it makes calls when I want to, and that it doesn't break even with the severe abuse most of my stuff endures. If I wanted to take pictures, I'd get a camera. If I want to play music, I'll use a CD or cassette player.
So basically, it sounds just like what I'm interested in.
