However, since it does cover all VZW phones now, you don't have much of a choice.

I have found the krzr to be a fairly poorly made phone. I like it for the slim form factor - it feels good to talk on and is easy to put in any pocket. If you want a small phone, it's hard to find one smaller.

However, there are some pretty large sacrifices for the small size. The phone is slow - it lags whenever you press a menu button. The reception is weaker than I had on my old V710. But most importantly, the ...
