I actually spotted this phone by accident while my wife and I were in the process of geting new ones, which happened to be Blackberry Torches. However, our new phones were already programmed and wrapped up for us, so it was too late. I TRIED in earnest to like my BB, but I found it to be cumbersome heavy, complicated and simply a bear to use, especially for texting. My wife loves hers, but I decided to go ahead and exchange mine for the Pantech pocket a week and a half later. I had never owned a pantech device before, but have looked at a few of their models over the last few years. However, none have impressed me as much as the Pocket. So far, I am very delighted with this phone.
One thing about this particular model is that it is BIG and has a screen to boot. I read negative reviews about the size of this phone and that's understandable. Nonetheless, I did not find it too terribly big and in fact, it fits in my hand perfectly. The biggest attraction is that it is a simple phone to use, yet just the right amount of apps to keep one happy. If you are looking for a blow your socks off phone, this will not do that. However, if you are looking for a "gateway" device that will accustom you to the smartphone, then this is it. Texting and surfing the web on this phone is a breeze.
Surprisingly, the battery has held up for a couple of days given the size of this phone.
The reviewer "Beach" above provided remarkable technical details, so i won't go on about that.
I believe there is a phone for everyone, and the Pocket is definitely for me.
