I looked at a live one today at an AT&T Corp. store, it is even uglier then the photo's, and plasticy but it did seem to function decently for a low mid range phone. Still, if one wants something like this, I feel one would be far better off with the Samsung Propel.
in our rural area motorola gets better reception than samsung, but since this is a text-centric phone that really doesn't make a difference. LG should come out with something like this too for att. The next style won't be touchscreen it will be half sized/pseudo rounded/full keyboard phones.
