I got one in the middle of march '04. Till now the service seems good. My reason of buying it is Reliance is giving away this phone + Rs 2000 talktime in installment scheme. So I need to pay Rs 500 per month for 7 months.

The good things first.

The phone is attractive and lightweight compared to other CDMA phones.

Voice clarity is extremely good, almost like landline.

Signal strength is somewhat ok in shadow areas.

Backlighting is good but everytime the signal fails it comes up and that causes a lot of battery drainage.

Now the minus points.

The navigation key is very hard and difficult to operate.

For menu, first thing that displays is settings instead of contacts. I wonder why they thought everytime we will change the settings.

For SMS , default is ezitext which is a kind of dictionary and very irritating with all kinds of suggestions. So every time you want to send a SMS you need to change the setting to get to normal typing.

Viewing a missed call is difficult. It shows, you have a missed call , but when you click ok it comes to default screen. Need to navigate down to missed calls section and then view it (maybe I don't know how to operate).

Ringer volume is very low. This makes it difficult to hear the ring if the phone is in your trouser pocket.

Another thing is local calls make up for most of the cost as billing starts as soon as the other end starts to ring no matter whether te called party picks up nor not.

Overall the set is good for recieving and making calls, but no fancy addons like d/loadable ring tones, picture SMS, RWorld, mms etc.
