    Hi, I picked up one from Cricket and so far I'm loving it, the only thing is the battery dies fast when I use it for games or using the nav while driving and also when using the WiFi. The Zio is new and not many people have one but it is lighter and thinner the most androids out on the marked. Right now I am trying to find how to gel break it so if you or anyone knows 100% how to do this, please tell me. Thanks and I would give the Zio a rating of 3.8 out of 5.

    I am thinking about getting one for my daughter. Especially if Best Buy has it on their free phone Friday promotion soon. I'd really like to know if it will get froyo and if the phone part of the phone is laggy like the Hero.

    Hi, I'm new here. The Zio is my first smartphone and I rather like it. Getting used to the thumb-scrolling and typing of course. But it was free when I switched to sprint. Android 2.1 is pretty good, but I do seem to notice some lag.

    i just got this lil device, despite all of the bad reviews i saw. and i must say, the only things that are really "flaws" are the battery life, touch-sensitivity and keyboard in portrait mode. i use Better Keyboard and it works beautifully now, plus Juice Defender for the battery drain issue. all in all, a great little "mid-range" Android device

    Aimeeattitude, how much did you pay for your Zio?

    I just ordered one of these today from Sprint. That's why I'm here.

    Hello all. I just got mine for free last week and so far no (major) complaints. Except for Skype not wanting to run (just posted a new thread about that)
    I'm a die hard BlackBerry fan but this is a work phone to replace a Motorola Nextel device.
