Using this on the T-MOBILE network in Southern Cali area.

PROS:

Excellent construction and build. Strong beefy metal hinge. Flip opens and closes without any creaks. Has a substantial "feel" to it. Even the battery door is made of metal (magnesium or aluminum, can't tell). Bottom part of phone also has rubber coating.

I have small hands, and love the slim form factor. Folks with larger hands may not like.

When getting a strong signal, call quality is excellent. I have both SPRINT (ppc-6700) and T-MOBILE accounts. Sprint has much better reception here in the SoCal area, but when the KRZR K1 has a strong reception, the call quality is crystal clear.

Nice responsive 2MP camera. Decent MP3. This phone uses the ATI Imageon media chip.

Stereo bluetooth


CONS:

Stupid name. The folks at Motorola need to learn how to spell.

Phone is slow. Not super slow, but slow enough to get annoying - especially when one has a large phonebook. About the same speed as the RAZR. Phonebooks with pictures makes it even slower. For those that like a phone that is responsive, you may want to look elsewhere.

No standard audio out jack (no 3.5 or 2.5, only mini-usb).

Front of phone is a fingerprint magnet.

Screen resolution too low for a "flagship" phone with a 2MP camera.

Browser is slow.
