The small buttons on the S66 are not a problem unless you have extra large fingers or long fingernails. There is a grove above each key which helps separate it from the key above, and provides a grove to catch your nail when dialing. After the first two days, I got used to the keys and have not mis-dialed since then (about 4 months).

I don't miss the radio or MP3, except when it comes to getting left out of the MP3 ringtone scene.

The S66 screen is very nice, large, and clear. Brightness can be adjusted from 100% to off, and great in direct sunlight. I keep my brightness between 50% and 70%. For web browsing in bed 10% works fine. First phone to have me desiring an e-book reader.

Signal strength is very good. In staff meetings in poor reception areas, my phone is often the ONLY phone that will work. Games are good, but the racing game is too touchy to enjoy. Siemens also lets you download a couple of extra games from their website for free. Contest Arena is a blast... you go through a zone fighting off attackers. A cool feature of this game is that you can take a pic of anyone's head, and stick it on your player in the game.

Exclusive is right, I've yet to meet anyone else with this phone in person.

S66 Cons: SO exclusive that you can't get accessories from local stores. Menus are complicated... you can tell they were designed by programmers and not users. Photo quality in low light situations is awful... get the flash. No voice dialing. Speaker phone volume is low and cannot be used in a lot of situations.
