      My best friend in the whole world, in whom I place great value on her judgement of things and her opinion, swore to me up and down that the Chocolate, which she’d owned for two years, was by far the best phone she had ever owned and that I should, when my contract was up, invest in upgrading to this phone. I had the motorolla razor, and I loved the phone because it was the first phone I had owned in which you could store and listen to music. I liked the idea of having a phone and mp3 player in one, because it made no sense to me to have to carry multiple electronics just to get the same benefits out of one piece that does it all. And, since texting and music were the two features I was most likely going to look for in an upgrade (the razor is

      not a texting phone, per say), I figured the Chocolate was a logical next step, especially considering that it came so highly recommended. My friend said the music feature was the best thing about the phone, and she even told me that, although it supports the Rhapsody music kit, you don’t actually need a kit to download music to this phone, and that was a big plus to me, even though I did already have the kit for my older phone. So, I signed up and got one.

      And yes, the one thing I loved about this phone was the music features. It supports regular headphones, and not those specifically made for phones, with those obnoxious phone-charging plug-ins. I hate that, because it means you have to settle for the uncomfortable earbuds that come with the phone and you can’t invest in nicer and more comfortable earphones. I had already purchased a ...


      • set of noise-reducing very expensive headphones thinking my razor would support it, and when I found it wouldn’t, those glorious headphones of mine were sitting unloved for over a year! And I thought great, I finally have a reason to use the headphones now, and it worked wonderfully. Sound quality was fantastic and I couldn’t have been happier with this particular feature. However, that’s about all I really did like about this phone.

        The front and internal screens were apparently made with some synthetic ingredient that just ATTRACTED fingerprints, and I was spending more time than I care to admit to wiping the screens free of dirty and grime and fingerprints, and it seemed a never ending battle. My friend suggested I just get the protective screens, which I did, but it was still an annoying problem. Even the casing, in general, was fingerprint-attracting. And, the keyboard was very slick, and I

        found that, due to the keys being so close together, my fingers would slide from one key to the next, unintentionally, while I was typing, and it would get so irritating the amount of times I’d have to backspace to fix a typing error, when I’m a normally very proficient typist. Also, the camera is about the poorest quality I’ve seen. I’ve had the next cheapest phone to the freebies that come with new plans, and the cameras in those phones were better than this one. It didn’t matter how close to or far away from a subject I was, the picture was always blurry. The lighting didn’t matter either. Occassionally, people would show up better than inanimate objects, but this was testy at best and certainly wasn’t reliable. I hated the camera with a passion. Though I loved the phone for the music feature, I really can’t say much else in favor of this phone.
