Costumer Reviews

This is my FIRST REGULAR ANDROID phone(other than ViewPad7 by Viewsonic). And before this, I had a HTC HD2 with Windows 6.5 (it was too buggy) and decided to go to an Unlocked HTC Android Phone. Since I am a huge HTC Fan (have been since HTC Excilabar-Dash). That said, this is how I gave a rating of 4.95:

1) Fast - goes into programs, apps very fast. 5 stars

2) WiFi - No problem QUICKLY hooking up to WiFi anywhere (at home or on the road). 5 stars

3) Good basic Music Player - I love to play music and audio files and this does the job nicely.4.8 stars

4) FM Radio - Easy to use and wonderful sound. 5 stars

5) Easy to use menus - I learned this phone within 1 hour without referring to the manual!

6) Added bonus--After I installed apps to my phone, I wanted to move them to my SD card. I downloaded the FREE APP called SUPERBOX from the Android Market (it is free and has 10 superb utilities including: Move to SD Card, UNINSTALL, File Manager, Task Killer, Battery Info, System Info, Memory Manager and more). Because of this program SUPERBOX, I was able to move my apps from phone memory to the SD Card! Android 2.2 and higher ASKS you at the time of each APP download if you want it on the SD Card or on the phone. Android 2.1 by default places the app on the phone. However, now that I have SUPERBOX, I have moved my APPS to my SD Card (after I installed them on phone). Note that Android prior to 2.1, you cannot move APPS to SD Card. (One of the reasons that I bought this phone it has 2.1).

CONS (however, these can be "fixed")

1) No File Manager! Minus 1/2 star! To fix this I went to the Android Market App and searched for FILE MANAGER, I found one I liked and installed and it is free and works great!

2) Needed better Music Manager to move songs around in my playlists. Again Android Market App to the rescue, downloaded a Music Player FREE that I like and am so so happy that I can move songs around in my playlists.

3) Poor TASK Manager! So back I go to the wonderful Android Market App Store! Yes, there I found a TASK Manager program FREE called SUPERBOX that has an Task/Memory Manager and a TASK KILLER and it frees memory so quickly--keeps this phone running smoothly and fast, fast fast

4) MMS/INTERNET Settings: WiFi works right out of the box, however, as in ANY unlocked phone, you need to get the MMS/Internet settings from ATT or T-Mobile or whatever your carrier is. In my case, I am a ATT Customer and paid pre-paid for $25 worth of data and wanted to try this out in a non WiFi area. It did not work. So I placed the APN settings in myself and opps, they still did not work! Now I am somewhat of a techie so I knew most in the APN settings were inserted by me OK, but something was missing as I could not go on ATT Internet or MMS! Every phone accepts APN settings differently. So I called ATT and had to sweet talk them for about an hour because I am a pre-paid customer. Finally after I insisted for about one hour, the support person sent me to the post-paid department and the tech there simply SYNCED the settings to my phone and in just 5 minutes, I had data (internet) and MMS! I was so blessed in this because ATT does not like UNLOCKED non ATT phones, nor do they like to deal with Pre-Paid customers. However, I explained to them that I paid $25 for the LARGEST Monthly Data Pre-Paid Plan (ATT offers $5,$15, $25 good for 30 days)and I was very upset because I could not use my data, and when the ATT Rep heard this he was very helpful and this is why I was able to speak to the "higher end" Post Paid tech who within 5 minutes synced my phone with proper settings for both the MMS and Internet Data , both have worked rigtht then and have ever since! I mostly use WiFi at home and on the road, however, about 15% of the time, I need to get on the Internet in a location that does not have WiFi this is when I use my ATT Data. If you ONLY use WiFi and don't plan to use a pre-paid data plan as I do, then you will not need these settings from the carrier unless you MMS (send pictures or receive pictures).

I hope this helps you the person thinking of buying this phone or any unlocked phone as maybe my experience with this will assist you in making up your mind. As far as this phone is concerned, it is a wonderful phone for a beginner to smartphones, android phones and even wonderful for the more advanced person. This phone has gone BEYOND my expectations! And being an HTC/ANDROID phone icing on the cake! If anyone would like to comment or ask a question, I will answer. Hope that you have enjoyed my review.

Update August 16, 2011: Just checked the software OS and it showed 2.2.1 Android! At the time that I purchased this phone in May, 2011, I assumed that it had 2.1 Android OS. However, since I have been using the phone, I get on the internet often and notice that the phone automatically updates my APPS and programs (I set it up to do this). This is why I believe that the phone possibly updated to Android 2.2 Froyo since I just checked and it has Android 2.2.1! I do not think that this phone is upgradable to Android 2.3 Gingerbread. However I did a search on my computer and found that in the Android Marketplace there are apps for Gingerbread theme and other OS themes. Since I love the theme I have now, I am going to keep my 2.2 true to form and when I buy future Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) or 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) future phones, the themes will be real! There is only one CON about this phone: Screen is kind of small just a 3.2". My next Android will have a 4.3" at least!

I wanted a Nexus One but this one is perfect!

Excellent price, pretty and exactly what I wanted.

But if you are really into cell phones, this is not the best option. The android version needs to be updated, there are few limitations to the 2.1 version, sometimes it crashes but still it has never disappointed me.
