Rated 2 out of 5 by from Worst Phone Ever! I really hate this phone. I've had it a few months and it is no exaggeration to say it is the worst phone I've ever owned. If I press the speaker phone, it mutes the caller...and yes, the volume is up as high as it goes. The caller can hear me but I can no longer hear them. The only remedy is to hang up on the caller and call them back. This only happens on phone calls otherwise the speaker phone option works fine...I can listen to books on tape just fine. If the phone rings and I even touch the screen while getting it from my purse or from the cup holder in my car, I've either hung up on the caller or answered the call...it's a crapshoot which event will take place. It's awful for business. The speaker is located at the mouthpiece so you can't hear very well; people are constantly telling me they can't hear me...and I'm telling them the same thing! Again, its awful for business!! And the volume on the speaker phone option isn't very loud so it's hard to hear when you're in traffic and listening to a book. Then, the hands free convenience is lost because the speaker phone doesn't work on phone calls...ugh. I have a phone holder in my car that I can't use with this phone. Not only because the speaker phone doesn't work the way it should, but the buttons to adjust the volume and to "wake up" the phone are on the back of the phone. Honestly, do yourself a huge favor and do not buy this phone! Worst phone ever! Worst design ever!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best phone Both my wife and I have this phone. We have had it several months and truly enjoy and love this phone. I have read some reviews of people who say they don't like the way the battery holds up. I think it holds its charge very well. My phone stays at 100% for close to 24 hours if I do not use it much, I can talk on it for a longer period of time than any other phone I have ever had.
