I have had this for over a year now and hasten to say it is the best PDA i ever used and best phone i ever bought.This is a combo.You have all the gears you ever need on your trip in your hand.Unlike the IPhone, you can expand the capability in cluding the storage by the power of your wallet. Watch video, listen to music, get direction, browse the internet, make WIFI call, make subscribed phone calls, bluetooth etc.It is endless.Free software out there to furher enhance this phone. Key board is great.I used the touch screen most of time.The phone reception is great. Compactness. This gear has droped many times and i wonder why it is in its pristine self.Very beautiful and compact. Battery Life I have read a number of complaints about this but will submit without procrastination that this is far from truth if you know how to manage the battery.Come to think of it, i will not expect you to use it as GPS without car Charger unless your are walking. The video and music tenure is great.I can not ask for more.Another plus is that you can pop the battery our with ease in case you are armed with a spare. I set back light to one minute and i can use my phone for three days and change. CONS Do not tell ATT you have 6945 in your hand when it is time for activation.Tell them you have 6925.No major diffrence except that one is made solely for ATT.6945 can work for as well. This multifunctional gear is useful in any country in the world.Your next trip to Europe, all you need is this phone and updated software for GPS.Listen to your music wirelessly through. This is the best PDA out there today Less
