Ok, first off, All the reviews made me not want to get this phone, then I decided to give it a try. I'm happy I have now cuz it's nothing what they say really. YES it does have it's occasional times when it will restart itself, but that's only since it needs to reset it's memory to where it can run everything you have it doing. I haven't tried the Wi-Fi on this phone yet considering I don't have access to wireless, but it does pick em up and tells you if they are locked or not. YOUTUBE can not be watched unless you have it on a Wi-Fi connection. Calling is great, it's clear. Picks up service better than my former LG 620G did. 3G connectivity makes web browsing a breeze. The pictures it takes is pretty good and clear. It does run on AT&T so check to see how well they cover your area before picking up one of these phones.
Ok so the complaints on the phone I've seen is buttons on the screen being too small. I have pretty good sized fingers and till I used to it, I had a hard time. Over time you learn how to hit the buttons right (in my case just two days). Currently can not find apps that work good on it, yet it does come with Facebook, Twitter, and Myspace preloaded on it. I use the facebook app and it's pretty nice. Has a standard headphone jack like what you would find on an MP3 player so you can hook up and listen to your music. IT WILL BROWSE THE WEB AND TEXT AND EVERYTHING WHILE PLAYING YOUR MUSIC UNLIKE SOME PHONES. The screen has a lock on it, on the side is a lock button, you push that it locks it up. On the screen you can hold a button and it unlocks, or on the side you can hold the lock button and that will unlock it. It is a little slow at booting up, but look at everything it has to load on a small device. I would say no more than 1 minute, if that, it will be ready to go. You can link your email with this phone and when you get an email it will notify you (it's not instant, but it lets you know when you get an email). It has three homepages (all with custom different backgrounds if you want) that hold your widgets.
Summary: Video Recording, Video Playback, Pictures, Browser, Games, MP3 player, full qwerty keyboard (when turned sideways), Bluetooth, Wi-Fi Connectivity, Voice recognition, and Much More.
Widgets: Facebook, Browser, Date, Google Search, Video, Pictures, Music Player, "sticky notes", Bluetooth, Weather, and more.
Note--The Widgets are shortcuts on the home pages that make accesing stuff faster. The Facebook widget shows the status updates right on your homepage of the phone.
Apps: Facebook, Twitter, Myspace
Overall a Great phone so don't hesitate to get it (if AT&T covers your area). Some of these people with reviews are comparing it to a much more expensive phone more than likely and that's why they rated it badly.
AND please get screen protectors to keep it working great. Just find some for around 5 dollars that are universal and cut them to size. This will ensure that your screen does work properly for the years to come.
