  111. Amy says:

    My boyfriend owns an Impulse and I have to say it´s a pretty cool phone, especially for the price it goes for. I guess my favorite feature would be the camera, since I love taking pictures and it does a pretty neat job at it. Still, I wouldn´t mind winning this Xperia to make him a little envious.. 🙂 Does AT&T also support ringback tones? I´m quite a maniac when it comes to those (yeah I know, it´s silly – I annoy the hell out of all my friends) and I don´t know if it is compatible with them… I don´t really want to change provider if I can avoid it… Still, a free phone is a free phone!! 🙂

  112. Daniel M says:

    Games, puzzle, sports, action, card, racing and more!

    I’m not a friend of the Xperia 4g, I got stuck with my galaxy s2. The Xperia has some nice feautures, but it’s to small for me.

  147. alex cox says:

    The best feature for the impulse has to be pricing and the led flash. Alot of phones today leave off the flash making the camera useless 50 percent of the time.

    Since I don’t have a smart phone so I’m going to say that my favorite feature is just being able to surf the web and receive emails. Everyone at work laughs at me because I don’t have a smart phone for work but when you put 2 kids thru college, they seem to get what they need first!
