I read through lots of reviews of the 5310 (including those posted on CNET). Most of the Cons are of no concern (e.g., camera issues). But a few things kept coming up that gave me pause. OTOH, reviews can be misleading.

Tony, from your reply, I take it you're a dealer? Have you owned the 5310? If so, wonder if you could comment on the following complaints that would be important to my wife:

1. Vibrate strength - wife cannot have ringer on at work. I only found one review that even mentions vibrate, but the reviewer said it was weak.

2. When holding phone, slight touch to MP3 buttons activates music (this came up several times; not sure if this can happen during a call?)

3. Accidental activation of phone and/or music in pocket. Understand this is an issue with all bar phones, but some complain that lockout function on this phone is annoying. Not sure my wife would be happy with having to choose between pocket calls vs. having to mess with an inconvenient lock/unlock function.

Thanks for any feedback anyone can provide!
