I was won this phone in a contest a few days ago. I've played with all the functions, but I have not used it with my service (Cingular) yet so i'll just review the functions.

-Super loud speakerphone
-Durable (built to have back cover fall off if dropped to absorb shock)
-Nice bright screen
-MP3 player (NOT iTUNES!!! Woo-hoo!)
-External memory (insert or remove card without taking our battery! Woo-hoo!)
-No cap on songs on MP3 player (instead of the 100 song cap itunes sets)
-Internal Antena
-Can use bluetooth with PTT feature (except to still have to push the PTT button on the phone)
-Buttons big enough to press with nails and easy to feel. (not like stupid v3 buttons)

-Hinge seems a little too small...seems like will break if dropped right on the corner.
-MP3 player is a little different to use and hard to find at first. (it's in the sounds like ringtones instead of in it's own application)
-Thickness...but I understand why it's that way. (to house the huge speaker)
-External screen not in color
-No little mirror next to camera to line up self portrait.

Overall I'd say this phone is a good mix of function and durability. It seems to have been made for a young construction worker! (or someone who abuses phones!) :)
