I agree with you, i had this for less then a year and the touch screen doesn't work anymore. the keyboard was nice though, but the touch screen is the heart of the phone. I tried to get it fixed because the phone was still under warranty, however they told me i had to pay $120 for the fix. i was not happy to say the least and decided i can use that money to get a better phone.
Its a rip off..definitely not worth my money!
