  • hooooo, its really an excellent messaging phone. i and my son both really like its features you presented. More interestingly its not very costly as compared to other phones.

  • I just got a Gravity T two days ago after almost purchasing a Samsung Highlight. If you are concerned about email on your phone like I am, be aware the Highlight only supports email from providers such as Yahoo and Gmail, while the Gravity T has full IMAP and POP support to any mail server. That was the selling point for me, and after 5 minutes of playing with the phone I could see it was more responsive and smoother than the highlight. Additionally The combination of a touch screen and a slide out keyboard on the T has made navigating this phone quite easy and enjoyable.

    It's not the most powerful phone, and it doesn't have an app store like Nokia's Ovi, but for the low price it comes equipped with a pretty decent set of programs that you might expect on a 3G phone. You can check email, chat, watch videos, surf the web, listen to music, record your voice, capture pictures and video, write memos, and more. The touch-wiz interface is pretty easy to use as well, with 3 customizable "desktops" that you can scroll through and add icons to for quick access to the programs you use most. There's also a nice feature that lets you make gestures on the screen while it is locked to quickly jump to a specific application.

    I'm not a fan of the contacts list since you can only see 3 contacts at a time, but you can scroll with your finger and search with a tap so it's not a big deal. Also the web browser is a little bit slow and clunky, certainly not up to par with a smart phone. There is no 3.5mm jack for headphones, only the proprietary samsung connection which requires you to purchase an adapter.

    Being on the lower-end of the high-tech phones these days seems to be adequate (for me anyway). The fact that it only requires a $10/mo data plan makes the Gravity T an affordable way for me to have email and internet in my pocket. It's no Android, but it certainly is a nice phone. We'll see how it holds up over the next few years…
