I bought this phone kind of hastily a few months ago and it's turned out to be a decision I really really really regret making. This thing needs to be charged almost every other day even only with light use like other people are saying. It's really annoying and inconvenient because the battery will go from three bars to two to one in a matter of a few hours and once the batteries at one bar you cant read texts, change settings or really use your phone for anything besides making calls. This really makes me angry when I'm at school and cant get a hold of anyone all day because my phone shut down on me without any prior warning

battery life on this phone is ridiculous

I find I can usually go two full days without having to recharge. That's with pretty average use too. A couple of phone calls and a few texts a day..

Hmm I have this phone And its like it requires a constant charge I have it on for about 8 hours txting most of the time and it really doesn't last. Also I think the reason is it takes 1 min at the lowest setting for the screen to be unlighted

I own a slash and the battery lif is ausome!!
Don't believe the stories about the slash not being well made, this is one of the best phones on the planet!!
The camera is surprisingly good(for a phone) and I absolutley love the keyboard!!
Its also really thin.

the battery life is really good, cuz it lasts for a LONNNNG time but if your considering getting a slider phone, i highly suggest getting the SHUTTLE because it is way more high tech and has waayyyyy more features. plus, my SLASH broke after having it for 2 months! the slider totally got ruined cuz i used it every day like most people do. Good luck! and i hope i helped.

no. at least not mine. because ive had mine for about a year now and sometimes i throw it up and catch it. i miss all the time and it slams on the ground and nothing happens. the only problem i've had was sometimes it freezes up when i send a message. i take the battery out and put it in and its usually better

I text nonstop with this phone, and I'va had it for over a year now. it's been perfect for me and none of the buttons had any problems.

the t9 is really good too because you can teach it words and it will store them in its dictionary.

p.s. the setting where you have to push space twice to get to the next word can be turned off if you know what you're doing.

i ADORED the keyboard on this phone. the buttons are uber easy to use, and you can practically text without looking. and the keyboard held up the whole time, until i got the wildcard cuz i was looking for an upgrade, but it was pretty much a downgrade. so DONT GET THE WILDCARD. cheers:D
PS and the t9 works amazingly. on the wildcard they have something called "ezi" which is pretty much just a rip-off version of t9 that doesnt work. and you cant have ABC on the querty keyboard and ezi on the outside, its one or the other.

i'm not sure what you're asking... you can get unlimited calling and unlimited text messaging, but if you're asking if you can have unlimited texting and just pay as you go for calls... yeah, you just top up your phone to have enough money for the unlimited texting, buy that, and whatever $ you have left over is left for calls
