    This is a decent phone. It was also released for US Cellular this week. Interesting to see that they are still meddling with the interchangeable faceplates.

    As David mentioned, this really is a great little phone. I also love the sporty design.

    this is to kyles question:

    all you have to do is get a micro sd card usb adapter, and plug it into your computer and drag and drop music files onto it.

    Does anyone know if it is posible to change the colour theme on the main dispaly on this phone?

    I was also wondering if you change the colour theme on the main display? The green looks awful.

    I bought this phone at the end of November and by the end of December was having text messaging issues. My phone would start saying memory is 77% full, please erase messages. But there were no messages whatsoever in the text area. Yet the percent kept growing. Took the phone back to where I got it and they replaced it. Same thing happened with second phone. I’m now at 98% full. DON’T buy this phone! I have seen so many other people with the same problem. One store even had 15 returns of the same phone in 1 month. If anyone has had this issue and got if fixed, PLEAS let me know how!

    Ya definitely a trend forming with the text memory here although i was “fortunate” enough to not have it happen until after 1 year ( Waranty length) so i’m probably screwed. Will call my local telus but i will be searching for a solution and get back to you Brittney if i find one.
