I recently bought the 6225 despite the somewhat unfavorable reviews I've read. The only worrisome part for me are the complaints re battery life, though it might not matter for me since I'm not a heavy duty user (I dont care if the screen quality isn't great, I dont really care about the camera, and if I want a radio I'll turn on my stereo). Basically I wanted a great form factor phone with good reception, the $80 price was right. So if the battery life stinks I'll return it. So far have noticed: -Reception & voice quality is great -One design flaw in my opinion: the screen saver comes on with nothing but the time displayed. If you've missed a call, it doesn't show it on the screen saver, so if you've walked away from where your phone is & wonder if you've missed any calls, you have to hit a button to wake up the phone to check. Both annoying & wasteful of battery life. So I set the screen saver onto its maximum delay so I can see the normal screen for as long as possible. ALso shut off the wallpaper to see if it helps battery life. Anyone know any other suggestions to improve battery life?
