Straight away I have to say that I don't use this phone for music, and rarely for the internet. I have played on the internet, and using the internet on a small screen is just too much of a fiddle for me - off to my computer. Incidentally, I could never get my Yahoo e-mail account to accept my password. As a phone and text machine, I love it. I text a lot, and using the stylus and the keyboard, texting is easily 3 times faster then using a keypad. A plus is that you really can't text while driving. Speaker phone is good. BlueTooth works fine; the wired hands-free has the microphone way down on the wire so that you must clip it to your collar or seat belt to have it near your mouth. Touch screen works very well, with stylus or finger. The battery seems to last forever. I eventually want an iPhone, but this is a very good second best.

I really wanted to love this phone, and I did when I first got it. There a lot of things that work really well, and some that really don't!

PROS:
* Touchscreen works pretty well, and seems to respond ok. Screen size is good and definitely much better than my iPod classic for viewing films on. It also accepts more formats.
* Multi format support - I'm no expert in these matters but I just want my devices to play as many formats as possible. It has played just about every type of music file I could through at it, including songs from my itunes library. Seemed to take a lot of video formats too.
* Bluetooth connection to my Mac was pretty good and faster than I would have thought, very convenient way to copy files across.
* Wireless connection works well and internet browsing on it is really very good, and very handy just as a hotspot finder, saving you dragging your laptop/macbook out just to test if there is an open network connection.
* Media bar short cut thing works quite well for quickly getting to images, movies, music and internet.

CONS:
* Weirdness - there seem to be quite a few weird glitches, but the worst two are:
1. Occasionally the web browser just close down, screen goes black, then goes through what looks like a re-boot (you see the nokia logo appear again, then the search for network etc)
2. Glitch occurs (apparently quite common) where the phone decides to stop alerting you of incoming text messages. One day it just stopped alerting me, no sound no icon, nothing. Even more weird is the solution, where you need to turn your call log off and then go back and make sure you have got alerts set up.
* Email - On the whole is not bad, and would even be in the PROs section, as the set-up and use of is really easy.

looked at the other reviews and decided to get this phone, overall i am very pleased with it the wi fi is great, faster than my wifes laptop the only gripe i have with it is the mobile internet its so slow i dont use it the music player is very good i can plug it into my car stereo listen to music and if i get a call i can listen though the car stereo and talk via the phones mic ! by the way i did this reveiw on the phones wi fi.
update"having used this phone for a while now i love it, the internet is not slow it was my fault for not having a 3g sim card ,since i have resolved this the internet is as quick as the wifi, the phone its self is so easy to use, the only down side is the battery life when watching videos, but if i just use it as a phone its fine ,and anyone who says its not as good as the iphone that is true, but the iphone is not £200 better !!!
Update, still a very good phone ,no problems ,the best part of buying sim free , is i have got a t mobile sim only deal on a 1month rolling contract free unlimited 3g internet for 18months ,unlimited texts and 100 minutes ,for £ 10 a month!

This phone does exactly what it says on the box! I love it. It is easy to use and has everything I need on it - a radio, music, a good camera, a diary, maps - as well as being a phone. I spent a lot of time reading up on touch screen phones before I decided to order this one and I am so glad I did.

I got this as an "upgrade" but am not overly impressed.

The good bits:
* Nice screen
* Compact
* Gives a qwerty keyboard for texting
* Internet access
* Decent radio/MP3 performance

The average bits:
* Battery life much shorter than advertised, typically 3-4 days at best with average use
* Ho-hum camera, poor colour rendering
* Some software bugs

The bad bits:
* Too many gimmicks and adverts in the supplied software
* Have to buy games
* Unreliable - keyguard switch broke after a month rendering it unusable
* Scratches far too easily
* Clunky interface requires too many taps just to make a voice call

Summary:
* Not really recommended

The stylus on this phone falls out after being used a dozen times, because of wear to the internal clip. The stylus hole is on the bottom edge of the phone, so the stylus then falls out. Since the wear is to the phone's innards rather than the stylus, buying a new stylus won't help.
The wrist strap is anchored to a concealed hook inside the phone. The hook is very weak, meaning that the slightest stress leaves you with a broken hook and intact wrist strap.
Every couple of months the email app simply forgets all the accounts. This isn't a simple case of reconfiguring the accounts - it then tries to download all old emails from the server, runs out of space and locks up. Trying to delete emails it had already downloaded didn't work because it got "clever" and assured me that despite me wanting to delete them it would keep the headers because it knew best.
Incoming text messages are timestamped with the time of ARRIVAL, rather than the time they were sent. So when I switch my phone on and get a message I have no way of knowing how old it is. THIS IS PATHETIC!
The touch screen is sluggish and the interface laggy. The menu system is inconsistent... in some contexts you can drag the actual menu to scroll (eg in Contacts) but in some (eg Apps) this just launches the app you touched. The scroll bars are far too sensitive and all too often there's too much content, so that it's actually impossible to see it all as moving the scroll bar a pixel whips the content up and down whole pages at a time.
Despite having installed several software updates since having the phone, they do not take effect. The date of last update is shown as two years ago!
The screen lock/unlock is a slider switch on the side of the phone...
