I Recently received the Cricket Txtm8 from my older sister who lives in Texas after she upgraded to the Apple Iphone 4G. My previous phone was a T-mobile Sidekick LX 2008. This phone has all the basic functionality such as text, picture messaging, Camera, Calls and a web browser. The battery is very good usually as long as you dont use the web browser. It is a tri-band system so i often have connection. The Text message system is pretty easy though the non-qwerty Keyboard does throw me off now and then and their does seem to be a connection problem that often double sends every text message i send. The picture messaging receiving is very flawed as you have to go to an external browser to access it and that is very frustrating if you do not have an internet connection around. The Camera is low megapixel and doesn't have a motion sensor so the pictures are often out of focus and blurry. The resolution is a joke and i often have trouble making out people in pictures so i just use the camera as a harassment tool to meet women. The non-qwerty keyboard is very confusing with it's labyrinth of special keys and alt-code functions. It's so difficult to type almost any symbols or smilies because this colossal problem. The web browser kills My sister said she had the same problems with this cheap phone; right down to the keyboard. The web browser is ridiculously slow and drains the battery in no time flat; otherwise i can use the phone for up to 3 days without charging it. The web browser doesn't support any scripting languages such as flash, java or NPinquisit. It is a faulty HTML, CSS browser that often freezes on a frustrating load page. You can never tell if the web page is just gonna load or just freeze and you often try to exit out of it right before it is finished loading. The tri-band feature is probably the best so i can use CDMA or 3G to make calls but it doesn't make up for it. I would not recommend this phone but i hear they have many new models of the same phone so maybe they addressed this issue. AS it stands though this phone isn't as good as a Nextel phone i bought in 2002!
