Default Nokia 6255i (CDMA) ... Anyone here owned one? Pros? Cons?

Hello.
I am considering upgrading from my Motorola T720c to the Nokia 6255i (CDMA)
http://www.nokiausa.com/phones/6255i and
http://alltel.com/phones/nokia/6255i.html (yes, my cellular provider is
Alltel of course). I am wondering if anyone here has owned or used
6255i and could share any pros and cons that they have personally
experienced? Anything you could relate would be invaluable! I really like
this phone, but I don't want to buy a dud.
Thank you,
Paul

I've had 2 of them for the last 2 years. It's a good phone. The hinge seems
a little flimsy, but I have had no problem. My son uses the other one and he
is kind of reckless with things, but his also is still intact. The other
plus with this phone is it has full blutooth capability, i.e. it is not
limited to just a BT headset. My 2 year contract is up and I'm not ready to
part with this phone yet.

I went through four, maybe five, of them over the course of a year and
a half. I picked it because it had every feature I was looking for in
a phone: camera, MP3 ringtones, memory card, Java, un-crippled
Bluetooth, IR.

The first one got stuck in "headset" mode when I used a standard
headset (not the proprietary Nokia connector) within a couple of
months. No amount of software resetting/rebooting brought it back to
normal operation, so I had it replaced. Same thing happened to the
second one after a week, but I liked the phone enough that I got one
of the proprietary connector headsets, and never had the issue again
with any subsequent 6255i.

I had two or three additional ones break at the hinge over the course
of a year and a half. At some point along the way, the firmware on
the phones went from "let's hide the Collection page to make it hard
to get to your Java apps" to "It is impossible to get to your Java
apps." That annoyed me, but I still got good service out of the
phone.

The hinges are the biggest weakpoint. The rest of the phone seemed
tough enough, but the hinge just didn't hold up well living in my
pocket.

It is a bit bulky compared to some of the newer flipphones, but the
feature set was compelling. I really liked mine, and I wish Nokia had
come out with tougher, smaller successor.

I'm currently using a Nokia 2865i. It's a "candy bar" form factor and
drops the camera and memory card, but is otherwise comparable to the
6255i feature-wise (BT, IR, Java, MP3 tones). The OS is sometimes
flakey (had several spontaneous reboots, but no data-loss; sometimes
fails to auto-lock) and it doesn't respond to keypresses as quickly as
I'd prefer, but otherwise a great phone. Too bad it too has been
discontinued.
