Great...for the money

I posted a review of this phone as well, but I just wanted to say that for the money, I really like this phone. For the past 4 years, I have been with t-mobile and bought 2 or 3 phones per year. On average, I pay about $350 for my phones.

When I switched to sprint, which I couldnt avoid, their SERO plan saves me like $1k a year..literally, I was really concerned that I would have to stick with a crappy selection of phones. After a little research (mainly on this site) I decided to go with the S30. I have to say, for being less than 1/3 of what I normally pay for my phones, it has only slightly less functionality.

Its not that horrible in comparison to the m800, but it is horrible when you compare it to good camera phones. Ones that have flash and zoom. This phone is pretty light, there is really no reason not to put a really nice camera in it.

As for the battery issue, I hope I have stock in the first company to come out with a revolutionary mobile battery solution... because they are going to make a TON of cash!
