I have one.
I will be looking for a replacement once the 12 months are up.

It's an OK phone, but nothing special.

The most annoying thing for me, is that if you close the muic player then it forgets where you were in the song (and I listen to downloaded radio shows which are 5hrs long, so it's a blood pain in the neck to remember where you were. Plus, the fast forward is useless, it either goes too slowly or if you keep the button down it flies by way too quick.

If you don't plan to listen to music on it, then you might like it.

First things first - its cheap! For around £120 it's extremely cheap for a smartphone.

The music player is fine, I use it all the time - but that forgetting thing is quite annoying. Strangely other Nokia non-smartphones (like 6500) DO remember. Also the fast forward speeds up the longer your press it - useful as if a show is 10 hours long, you'll be there all week trying to forward it. Or you can just use the progress bar to do it.

Its a superb phone, GPS is excellent, Garmin works perfectly on mine, Nokia Maps does aswell, Google maps are a dream, web browsing is snappy when loading full HTML pages (in v21). And with a 8GB memory card you can't go wrong. BBC iPlayer is really good, I just download them and watch them later, and the Nokia App store is pretty good. Camera is rubbish (ok, ok, not bad but not as good as N95 8GB), and it sometimes crashes, more so than my N95 8GB which has very mature software is hardly crashes.

And it's got Fring which has Skype, MSN, gmail etc. etc. And I use it to check my emails.

So ultimately it's not the best phone out there - but price versus value? It will totally kill anything!!!!!!!!!
