I replaced 3 rzrs in a year and then got this one. I LOVE this phone. It's rugged. I've dropped mine at least 5 times and it's been knocked off the counter onto a tile floor. It keeps on working. It's about the same size and thinness as the RAZR (which is what I really liked about the RAZR). BUT I get more bells and whistles with this one.

I wanted the windows 5 mobile stuff and I hated the bar style pda phones that I tried in the past. (I kept dialing people from my pocket, and they would barely fit into my pocket. I don't like a huge wonking phone hanging on my belt). I loved the size of the RZR but again the longevity of the RAZRS just weren't there. The microphone and the antenna bars in them kept breaking.

This 3125 has been the ticket. The size is great, the size is awesome, the clamshell with win mobile 5 is awesome, the toughness of the phone is terrific. The only drawback to this is that the speaker phone is pretty weak.
Battery life is good for all it does. Not as great as the RAZR but then my RAZRs didn't let me have connectivity to my MSOffice either. I have to recharge one day sooner than I did with the RAZR.

The other drawback is that HTC changed the connector from a standard mini usb (like all their other phones) to some proprietary thing. But you can find third party accessories now.

Would I recommend this phone to another phone geek.. ABSOLUTELY.

fyi.. some people are talking about the bright flashing light... if it bothers you, just turn the phone over, so the light faces down against the countertop instead of flashing up into the air. (DUH!)
