Sitting here with two phones, a Verizon Blackberry and my AT&T Aria.
Once again, my Verizon has perfect sound, get and makes calls.
AT&T phone barely connects and I can't hear anything.
Furthermore, Aria is a delicate flower of a phone which makes it useless to anyone other than a light handed douche.
And Ambictus, no, I do not have a, "tendency to drop phones" but if a phone drops once in a while it should be fine.
Maybe the Aria is best suited for people who don't do much that isn't on carpet or far from the ground, a bill you might fit?
