After using the HTC Surround phone for a couple weeks, overall I like it. It is a touch screen, it has a kick-stand on the side for when you want to watch a video or just want to prop it up. A lot of stuff you can do on regular phones, but on this one you can use microsoft office, add apps, play x-box live (with a fee), plus it has wi-fi which is great, and everything usually downloads very quickly. It's a lot easier to use the e-mail app on this phone compared to regular phones. The bad: You can't download Ringtones to use, and there are not enough tools on the phone (unless you download the apps)...But overall the phone is a great phone and I will continue to use it.
