I love this phone! I bought it used and couldn't be happier. love the e-mail, and I have it set up through Bloglines to receive RSS feeds -- for free! I'll never go back to a run-of-the-mill cell phone.

Great to have access to e-mail, news feeds

Expensive. esp. when you include access charges

The 7280 is outdated by the 7290, which of course has the speakerphone and bluetooth, my two main complaints about the 7280. But work issued me this for free so I'm "stuck" with it.

Bery fast, email is 10/10. Phone quality is excellent

Large, a little awkward, no speakerphone or bluetooth

The email funciton is by far the best feature and really the only good feature

The Phone, PDA, and Internet functions are all very poor compared to most others all in ones on the market
