Pros: It functions as a phone, it's a slider, it comes with a charger.

Cons: It will come with outdated firmware so be ready to spend 45 minutes or more in a Verizon store, battery life can be horrendous with extremely little use, pressing "ok" twice unlocks the keypad and lights up the LCD display after which the LCD dims but never turns back off (might be part of the battery problem issue solved right there - poor thought on Samsung's behalf!), its texting is slower than other Samsung phones such as my old T629 but is not entirely unbearable.

Things to HATE: No FTP via bluetooth, no OBEX support either. Verizon likes to take your money for a poor product, and that includes their entire product line. Every device they sell is crippled so they can charge you money on things like ringtones, which on other carriers you can freely trade them among phones.

Things to DO if you buy a Sway: Update the firmware at Verizon. Obtain a data USB cable for the phone. Obtain QPST 2.7 build 301 or newer. Modify that phone. Join the efforts to hack it so Bluetooth is not crippled.
