I currently have the Wildcard and its an O.K. phone. I got it in December and it only froze once, and it recovers quickly. I want to get the X-tc because it has a much bigger screen and the Wildcard has a very small screen. But im not sure if the X-tc is a 3G phone, but the Wildcard is.

im thinkin of switching to the X-tc soon though

answer 7
i had a wild card till it broke and it wasnt very awesome (unlike the X-TC!!!!!). its only good for txting. and the games arent that fast.
the shuttle is ok becuz it has an mp3 but so does the X-tc and with the shuttle you can record videos or at least thats wat i heard but oly for like 30 seconds. it also doesnt have a qwerty keyboard so if u text alot like me i think u would like the X-tc. im used to the qwerty keyboard because like i said i had a wild card...till it broke in half.
now for the X-tc it may not be able to record videos like the shuttle but so far its the BEST phone ever so far (in my oppion) it slides and has a qwerty keyboard wich is awesome. it also has an mp3 wich is very good becuz i was gona get the shuttle fir that only reason untill i saw that the X-tc was more my style and it has an mp3. i dont know what type of phone u have so if u like music and calling people get the shuttle. if u like texting,music and or calling people get the X-tc and if u just like to text get the wild card.

i have a wildcard and i like the texting and the doublescreen also it dialing is easier in my oppinion than the x-tc. but for features definately the x-tc but just for a nice looking phone i say the wild card. and some people say that the charger break easily on the wild card, i have had my charge for a year and i travel alot and it never have broken. and also the wild card charges super quick when i was going to school i would let it carge for ten minutes and it was full every time. well its your choice i like them both.

I have the wild card and it is definately the best prepaid phone I've ever owned, and ive owned quite a few. Ive had my phone for over 6 months and have never had a problem with it, or the charger. Ive been reading everyone is having trouble with their phone breaking in half and they keep going through chargers, I must have gotten lucky or something. The keys are small at a glance but after getting used to them I can type very fast. My wife has the ENV2 and its so hard for me to type on that since im used to the Wildcard. The only downside is the Tetris game I downlaoded freezes sometimes which is very annoying but other than that it is a great phone.

I don't understand why everyone says there wildcard snapped in half or they go through 3-4 chargers. If your wildcard snapped in half, you must have some pretty heavy hands, I have had my wildcard for about 3-5 months and it hasn't malfunctioned once. Although i have to say, the x-tc does look like like a pretty good phone, but all in all the wildcard was a pretty good phone. Gets boring after a while.

I had the wildcard, and now the X-tc. The X-Tc is a better phone hands down except for the keyboard. The wildcard's keyboard was bigger.

I must have had the only wildcard they made, that did not fall apart. After I downloaded the opera mini, I could have lived with my wildcard until it died, but I brought the X-tc for the bigger screen.

I just switched from the WildCard and I LOVE my new X-TC.

THe X-TC UPS:
-Has A bigger screen
-Looks better
-It slides rather than flip
-has a MP3 player
-generates clear pix
-Great features
-Great sound (loud)
-The keys are soft and easy to use
-Better Ringtones
-Better Txt-Tones
-Better Camera frames
-You can modify your pix
-Great graphics
-New games
- Dial by sliding out or by the navigation key
-Great reception
the downs:
-No video
-the numbers keys are vertical rather than horizontal
-no smilies for txt msgs

The phone is FABULOUS...just FABULOUS

The Wildcard:
-The screens are small
-when using the flip to often it will become very loose
or even come apart
-not worth the money spent on it
-doesn't have the MP3 option
-vibrate is not strong
-not very loud when volume is maxed
-out dated

I hope this has helped....So in my opinion the X-TC would be a better phone to go with. The WildCard will do the job but if you want a better phone for your money I say go with the X-TC. I Love my phone. =)

It depends on how big your hands are. If you're hands are bigger you may have a few problems maneuvering the device because the buttons seem like they're designed for smaller hands. But if not, you should have no problems

If you are in a hurry or you have really big fingers, you will probably mistype on the keyboard.

However, the keys are actually pretty easy to type on. They should be no problem to type on as they are raised slightly in the middle of each key.

OK, Your deciding to get a new phone? I'd go with the X-TC. I'm getting that phone myself this Friday. I currently have the Arc and i do like it a lot. I've had it for a year and it's never froze, broke, needed to be replaced, and everything still works the same. But i had the Wild Card too. It discontinued but they still sell it for now in some stores. It is a terrible phone to me. I'm a teenager, so i text a lot. And the wild card gets very lose and the first one i had it broke in half when i flipped it open not hard at all. And the second one i had froze constantly, and the front keypad ripped off the front(not kidding) i had to re put it in and trust meee! its not easy. and my friend has the X-TC and he says its a great phone. I've used it 2 times. It is a great keyboard. Pretty good clear picture camera(about the same as the wild cards camera) and it had great color. So my opinion, Get the X-TC. if you do get the wild card. You wont be too happy i dont think.

You should get the x-tc just because it looks better. Although the keys on the keyboard are a little cramped it all depends on what size your fingers are. Plus the x-tc is more up-to-date than the wildcard and the x-tc hold music/mp3 unlike the wildcard.
