Facetime only works through wifi

Inconsistent 3G signal from smart


The screen is nice and crisp.  I wished it were bigger though.  The design is the same as the iphone 4.  The real difference comes from its innards. Better camera, faster brain.   waaah!

To protect the phone from occasional drops, I got a nice Incipio Feather Ultralight Hard Shell case.  It really cushions the impact and its matte material gives me that non sticky feel.

Its a great phone but my battery only last half the day due to nonstop tinkering.  The solution was to turn off the wifi, the screen brightness, bluetooth, location services and  the gps.  It really helped a lot.
