Love the phone

Comment: 

I bought mine in Feb of 2011 and it's still works great in 02/12, and really haven't had any problems, I did buy mine brand new. Works great, had no problems with service, GPS has even been wonderful. It has multiple email's you can set up,so its great if your a busy person and need something on the go. The only bad thing I have to say, is if you like games, this isn't the phone for you, but for everything its Great!!

Nokia 6790

Comment: 

wouldn't go so far as to say this is a great phone. It is good at best, VERY outdated compared to the new phones on the market. About the only good thing is the flipout keyboard, strong signal, doesn't use the Sprint network (the newer Android models do use Sprint and Sprint coverage blows if you are in a rural area) Internet is not up to par...very slow and nothing like the newer phones. Not a touch screen, small and very dull screen not bright at all even turned up to the brightest setting. I would steer clear as this phone should be considered an old outdated model by now and I can't even believe it is still possible to buy it. I bought mine over a year and a half ago and it was old then! One thing about the 6790... it is durable.
