Anyone got/used a 7710, are they any good? I'm currently using a 3230 which
is ok but a bit slow to use...

One concern is the large screen, does it have any kind of protective cover
as I wouldn't want it scratched as that would wreck the phone!

I have it, and love it. It is very geeky remember, touch screen is
definitely the only real way to use the phone. It is a soft plastic screen
cover which is permanently installed to protect the touch screen. If you
have ever used a touch screen PDA or a Nintendo DS, then you can imagine
what this is like.

If you simply make calls, then its not for you. However, if like me you use
the phone for all sorts, such as email, and web browsing, then it is
awesome.

I use it for all the usual mobile functions, and also:

- Email checking, and sending
- Internet Browsing
- MSN messenger (Powered by Agile Messenger - awesome)
- Calendar / Diary functions - very cool


Also, all text messages, emails, phone numbers etc are input with your own
hand writing, it is very good - my writing is such a mess, yet the phone
makes very few mistakes. You can also train the phone to recognise your own
style of letters.

The camera is OK, but there is no flash. Also, the phone is a bit of a
brick, Bluetooth headset recommended :)

I've heard reports that the software is not too stable, have you had any
problems with that?

Had one issue where the ringer and vibrate would not work. Had to restore
to factory defaults.

Otherwise, no problems.
