Advantages: reliable and simple
Disadvantages: no camera or 3g
This is by far the most reliable phone I have had. While not the newest, so with weaknesses such as a lack of 3G and a camera, it is a workhorse, and a mile apart from the newer models which seem to break far more often. The keyboard is perfect, and the battery life is amazing, it seems to run in my pocket for about 3 days, being used every day for both email, and text, as well as the occasional BBM. Moreover, this has the original brick breaker, which I can vouch for being amazingly fun. The calendar is easy to use and effective, and the layout, while simple and perhaps not the most stylish is very good to use and effective. Moreover it is a phone which can stand up to daily rigor, with mine having been dropped many a time. All in all, an amazing, although dated, phone.
My only complaint would be the slightly annoying layout of the menu, with some options hard to access, as well as the fact that sometimes the track-ball becomes unresponsive and requires some patience to get working again.
Summary: Very Good.
