Nokia 6820 / 6820i
Good Phone but not Great
I was excited to have a small phone with a foldout keyboard. The fold out keyboard is great, but the number pad on the front was too difficult to dial. The keys offer little feedback and they are different sizes and heights from each other. The screen is small, but very good. The phone fit nicely into my pocket. The phone performed excellent with T-Mobile (Unlocked) and using WAP, Bluetooth, IR, etc. I loved using SMS and IM with this phone. Also, I loved being able to respond to email with this device too.
Fold out keyboard.
Great for IM, SMS, and E-Mail
Front Keys OK
Volume control is weird to operate
I used this phone for about three months. I got tired of the poor dialing ability, so I sold the phone on eBay and got a Nokia 6230.
Good reception (even in southern GA)
Calendar has many wonderful features
qwerty keyboard is easy to use
joystick function is convenient
The battery lasts forever
Speakerphone volume is awfully low unless in quiet area
Joystick is messing up after four months of use
Camera------useless-------it may as well not be a camera phone

great phone i work for cingular and it has a really strong reception
Good phone but watch out for the Mmode button...
The phone is really cool. Actually one of the coolest phones I have had. Now let me just summarize my personal experience with this phone that might help anyone that might want to acquire this phone.
-Great live video recording and sound
-Awesome for txt messaging
-Ok picture quality
-The size is good, not too big or not too small.
-The picture quality is a bit too dark and hard to see.
-Speaker phone is not too loud.
-If phone is in your pocket, or you mistakenly hit the button on top of the (end call) button to terminate a call, you can activate the connection to ATTWireless Mmode which you will be charged with. ( Make sure to always lock your key pad to avoid this problem and discussing charges with your carrier)
-Have noticed that I don't get calls for a while and when I look at the phone I realize it gives me a lot of SIM card Errors.
I reside in the Central Florida area around Orlando. The service is I would say about 90% good, I don't really get good reception around some areas where I live.
But in all I like the phone and even though it has some setbacks it is a great deal and a device you will have fun with, with all the features it brings.
Hope my review has been of some help to anyone.
I got this phone from AT&T, and it is pretty good being a Refurbished
-Cool Backlit QWERTY keyboard
-Stopwatch, Countdown timer, Converter (Like Fahrenheit to Celsius)
-Lots of ringtones
-Screen brightness doesn't seem to fit any pics
-No Screen savers even though it comes with tones of graphics
-Camera Quality really stinks even when put to high quality mode.
I guess its a good phone, but not like my new Nokia 3200!
