Comfortable QWERTY keyboard. Solid email support. Decent call quality

No 3G. Poor camera. No music or video playback

Kyocera Brio ( Sprint)

 

The Kyocera Brio has good call quality, access to Web-based e-mail, room for a 32GB expansion card, and it's free with a new two-year contract.

The buttons and keyboard could be more comfortable on the Brio, the camera is pretty terrible, and Internet is a poor experience. The Brio is not a 3G phone.

Comfortable QWERTY keyboard. Solid email support. Decent call quality

No 3G. Poor camera. No music or video playback

The Kyocera Brio is a free, capable messaging device, but Sprint users can do much better without having to spend a dime.
