Nicer than most "Smartphones"


Jun 9, 2010 by taxial

I have had this phone for about three weeks now and really like it a lot. Maybe be the best phone I've had. (I've had many)
I really do not do much text messaging but being a "messaging" phone I will assume it does that very well.
I do a lot of web browsing and must say that the Netfront default browser is very basic but yet quite capable. However once I downloaded Opera Mini 5, the browsing now is almost PC like. The page rendering is perfect on almost every site I view. The touch screen zooming works very well. Only tap zoom though.
The touch screen itself works very well. I for one like the resistive type over capacitive because they just work better with my fingers. My only complaint with the touch is when scrolling you have to press rather hard and sometimes it will thing you taped it and go to that app or whatever instead of continue to scroll. The best thing is that you have the choice of using the touch screen or navagate with the arrow keys on the keyboard which is great when dealing with links on a web page and the links are so small that your finger would hit multiple links. My biggest complaint is that it seems that Virginmobile is denying access to downloading the Bolt browser which the people at Bolt tell me it would work on a touch screen phone but I can't seem to download it
As for the phone, I find the signal and sound quality to be excellent here on sprint in the NYC area
All in all, if you need a great phone with really good web browsing ability, I would strongly recommend this one.

Would be great if it had IM...


May 15, 2010 by cheriba

This was my first foray into this kind of phone. I really liked it for the most part - lots of great features! However, the one thing it does not have is IM?!?! It is included in the Features Guide that comes with the phone, but after talking with Sprint Tech Support, they said it was not available on this particular phone.

* Great features
* Love the slide out QWERTY keyboard
* Durable
* Long battery life

* No IM!

Since my office uses IM for work, I need to trade this phone in for something similar (like the Samsung Moment) that does have IM. I'm sad because I love the purple color :D.

If you can live without IM, then this phone is for you; if you can't, then move on to something else.

Rumor Touch ROCKS!!!!!


Apr 29, 2010 by Kimberpooh72

I just received my Rumor Touch yesterday...and have been playing with it non-stop ever since!! So far I absolutely LOVE the features it offers..some unlike other phones-and I am a phone nut!!! I especially love the Hello UI Interface to keep your most used contacts organized. Very clever!!! I also love the touchscreen-very user-friendly and responsive.
The only missing feature that kept me from giving this phone a 5 rating is when you turn the phone sideways, there is NO virtual on-screen keyboard as an option to type--so the only way is by sliding the phone open and using the actual keyboard-which is GREAT-by the way-but the option of typing on screen is nice sometimes too for a change of pace. Other than that, this phone is amazing. Camera quality is excellent too. Also love the Facebook option-kudos for giving us that.
Overall this phone rocks...I highly recommend it to anyone that loves to text and loves a fun phone! :)
