Time will tell

I hope this version for AT&T is more reliable than our Kyocera Torques on Sprint.

Our Torques have been unbelievably buggy since day one. For the first few months, they were a constant problem, just barely usable. They finally got the firmware updates to where the phones are usable, but they are still noticeably buggy, especially compared to my wife's iPhone4, which has had zero problems.

We do love the volume & clarity of the Smart Sonic front face in lieu of conventional speakers. For the Smart Sonic feature I give the Torque an A+, but for overall user experience, I give ours a C-minus.

We go off-contract next month, and we can't wait to be rid of the Torques. The Torque had a lot of potential, but the constant bugs and lack of r...

I don't see in the details of the phone what is included as accessories? Looking to see if the plain old clip comes with it?
