Rumor 2 and Battery Life
I have had this phone for a while and actually , like it very much . Easy to use , seems sturdy and has lots of features . The ONE thing I really do not like is the battery life and I find the battery indicator / meter to be somewhat inaccurate. When you see the first battery bar go away , you havent got long . I just charged the phone last night and used the texting feature quite a bit today and one bar is already gone. Thats not to impressive. How is everyone else finding the battery life on these phones ? Other than that I like it a lot.

good, simple phone
I've had this phone for almost a year, and I really like it. I owned the original rumor before this, but the rumor 2 is by far a much better phone. The qwerty keyboard is very easy to type on. I would recommend this phone to anyone who wants basic features like calling and texting, but if you want to use the internet browser, i'd choose a different phone because the screen isn't really big.

Great Sturdy Phone
I have had this phone for a year and a half now and it has literally been through everything. I'm not usually hard on phones but about a week after I bought it, I dropped it into a full glass of lemonade. I popped the battery out, drove 25 minutes home, then took a hairdryer to to and stuck it in a bag of rice. It worked! It gets dropped daily on blacktop, tile, cement, ect., and it has held up wonderfully. Then last night, I dropped it into a glass of pop. Once again popped the battery out, hairdryer, and a bag of rice and it works perfectly today.
I wouldn't recommend doing these things to your phone, but accidents happen and this one has lived through them all!

Happy Abt purchase!
My 1st Qwerty keyboard, with camera cell. Very happy with this phone. I really like the number of features (6 programmable alarms & 1 quick alarm, scheduler, notepad, MP3, etc, etc). I also quite like that you can set different ringers/vibrates to various features. OH! I took a voice recording & set it as my scheduler 'notifier'... now I get to hear "Pls check calendar" =)
The only con I have is that all the buttons are a lil bit to hard. I wish they were a little bit more rubbery or soft... would make it easier to push the buttons (I often misspell words b'c my fingers slip. I would also like it if I could sync my calendar & contacts with my computer (yes, I have the USB cable - still doesn't do it =( Alas ).
Overall, pretty happy with my purchase.
