I refuse to do any business with AT&T myself. The whole battery thing is a very important aspect of many. If it is new I suggest steering clear even if the manufacturer is a know name. The electronic industry is a mess in itself. There is no reason to fix something when the new model comes out in 6 months, sometimes less. I have an evo4g and I am upgrading myself. Speaking of Smartphones make sure it has access to QIK, it can help in those encounters with LEO. The videos can not be deleted from your phone. It is all automatically saved to the account online. The only way to delete the videos is to log in online (not from your phone). Please keep this updated because I am going for an upgrade myself.
