Pro: Great phone all around until bluetooth is connected to a computer or other source. Con: This phone is great until it is connected through bluetooth to my computer. After it is connected many features on the alarm clock page stop working---including the "new alarm" button and the exit button. The page just freezes and the only way to get it to stop that I know of so far is to have the Alltel agency reset it. I have had 3 different phones of this model do this. Using experience: 10 days If anyone has had this same problem and knows how to fix is pleast let me know! Less
