MY review of the Quickfire...

Comming over from T-Mobile, using their purple Nokia Xpress Music 5300 (which I LOVE),

I got my orange Quickfire mid December 2008, the week before Christmas as a gift from my mom. I've had it almost six months now, I'm on my second warranty replacement, and I can honestly say, I wish my mom had chosen another phone for me. There was no way for her to know that it would have issues, etc. have not had any issues with my charger or phone overheating like everyone else did...I can see the arrow on the charger plug and didn't plug the damn thing in wrong...but I am being sent a new charger anyway. I asked for another phone since I heard a lot of customers were sent replacement phones other than the Quickfire...

Pro's:
-Large, backlit screen
-Great for texting, which I do a lot of since I my mom got me unlimited text.
-Solid slider design, no problems with it comming apart, etc.
-My battery life is great, i've had my phone off the charger using it as much as I would a home phone, and it lasts and lasts.

Con's:
-No ways to add new themes, just the same blue and Grey...
-Can't assign ringers for phonebook entries unless they are saved to the phone, not sim.
-Volume on the highhest setting isn't very loud.
-It didn't come with a USB, or driver software for the USB, and once I did get one, drivers were installed and the Quickfire still didn't show up on my pc.
-Touch screen is mostly unresponsive, depending on the temp of my hands, and it does not respond to a stylus...
-Sadly, with the exception of custom ringers and wallpapers, there is not a lot of room for customization on the Quickfire...
-My phone randomly turns off anytime it feels like it...
