"Great idea, awful phone!"

Well i love the idea and this phone has a great range of features, plus it is just plain cool! I mean a 180 degree swivelling phone with full screen wallpaper... but, and it is a big BUT: It is just not strong enough for evryday use. I first bought one of these a few months ago and discovered, after rushing it home excitedly, that it was cracked, but put it down to a one-off accident. However, i then got another two, one after the other, both promptly lost their joysticks after a few days of use. I then took it back for a refund and decided to buy another from another store a few weeks later, however i had the same problems again. It was at this point that i realised it was not just a faulty batch, but a simply faulty phone.
So, if you want my advice, dont buy this phone!
Hope this helps!
