Because it's really not a smart phone. The review from VeeJay pretty much sums it up. This phone will provide you with passable touch screen capability and a workable Internet surfing experience via a customized browser. This browsing program only displays basic screens (not the intricate detail you normally see on your computer or on a true smart phone screen). But it gets the job done for someone who needs or wants Internet connectivity and doesn't want to pay the rip-off $30/month charge that comes with a true smart phone. $30/month ... what a racket. Cell phone bills are high enough without adding on this exorbitant expense. Wi-fi means that you can connect to any unsecured wireless router signal within range of the phone and thereby avoid using minutes on your plan. I guess this is nice if you're always within the relatively short range of a wireless router and your plan doesn't offer very many minutes, but having the wi-fi radio activated on your phone will suck the life out of the battery. That's something the people who tout wi-fi conveniently forget to tell you when they pitch the advantages of having a wi-fi capable phone. Sorry if I sound a little cynical, but it seems that you really can't trust what a salesperson tells you these days when it comes to cell phones. They either lie, don't know what they're talking about, or just don't bother to give you all the info you need in order to make a smart decision. You really need to do your own research and educate yourself before deciding on a phone and getting locked into another 2 years with it.
