Unless you dont mind having to charge your phone twice a day. I got the chocolate a month ago, and after 3 days, the battery started completely draining a full charge at random. Also even with VERY light use I had to charge the phone as soon as I left work every day. Verizon said "of course it drains the battery if you send text messages while listening to music". So I brought the new phone in a week after I got it to complain, and they said I had a bad battery & gave me the heavy duty as a replacement.
Well that lasted 5 days or so, then right back to the same thing. So I went back again and they said the only other thing they could do was give me a new unit. So I took it, brought it home, charged it fully. And after 12 hours of sitting ilde in standby with a 2 minute call in the middle the 'brand new phone' had lost half its battery.
So back to the verizon store for a 3rd time. Now they started getting offensive, asking everything I do with my phone and telling me that I text too much and thats my problem (not true). So I demanded my money back so I could get another phone. A clerk went to "ask a manager what could be done". At least 2 hours and 3 managers later, I was given a "special favor" and granted a 1 time only refund.
Which I used to get the VX8300. No complaints here. This one has a flash for the camera (not on the chocolate). As I type this its tuesday night, and last time I charged this phone was saturday night. With HEAVY texting and listening to music for 3 days, has only used half my battery.
Another big complaint about chocolate is the music player. It DOSENT REMEMBER THE ORDER OF SONGS ON AN ALBUM!!! I thought that was half the point of digital music.
Thanks for reading this. I hope I can save someone from my trouble.
