Rated 5 out of 5Â by Gandy82 Great Overall!
I have had this phone for over a year and I really like it. I enjoy downloading apps and all the neat stuff smart phones can do. It gets pretty good signal....my husbands phone (droid pro) does usually gets 1 very seldom 2 more bars than I do. However it doesn't seem to make much difference as far as dropped calls or data speed. If you have signal....you have signal...if you don't....you don't. Anyway, the battery life could be a little better but I am on my phone quite often checking email, weather and listening to music so I can't really complain. I love, love, love the dock and charm that comes with it. To cool. My original phone had a little mishap and the screen cracked. I had it replaced by Asurion insurance and they sent a brand new one with extra accessories. I love this phone. I hope it lasts for quite a while because I am so familiar with it. I am getting one for my mom because it is very easy to use.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by LoveMyHTCRhyme My First Smart Phone!
This is my first Smart Phone. I was nervous about the change, but this phone has made it easy. I use it as a phone of course, but also for checking e-mail, surfing the net, etc. when Im out and about and need to keep up on things, as well as taking pictures (great camera), etc., etc., etc.
I had a learning curve, but I think it was mostly from my inexperience with a Smart Phone, and when I first got it I was very busy so didnt have time to really learn it for a few days, but could still use it right away. Ive had it about a week now and feel fairly comfortable with how it works. I have also found the online helps have answered any questions I have had.
I did buy a hard cover for it as it felt so small after my larger LG Cosmos, plus I wanted the extra protection for it, although it is a nice feeling phone for weight, etc.
The only thing I dont like in this regard is that I cant use the charging station with the cover on so either have to charge it from the side of the phone, which is a bit difficult to get the connector in, or take the cover off, which is a hassle too, so so far I have just decided to leave the cover on and charge it from the side of the phone.
I like the charm idea, but I also have a stylus that is meant to fit into that same area so have to use one or the other. Would be nice if I could use both.
The battery life has been good with the way I have used it so far.
And, on a side note, I got the 2 GB data plan and it appears it will be more than enough for what I need. That was another thing I wondered about. I liked being able to use the data plan calculator, and I think it has turned out to be very accurate.
Nothing is ever perfect, so the few minor things really arent anything I consider big negatives.
I totally recommend this phone!

Rated 2 out of 5Â by Randomhtcuser Poor battery life and cell service.
The phone is great for about the first two months. Then it degrades quickly. The battery life some days is great and other (with the same amount of use) it will go from 40% to powering down in literally ten minutes. After about two months it also begins to freeze up for periods of three to ten seconds and run hot. It will also restart randomly and do a mini restart (where it doesn't completely shut down but it replays the htc start up screen for no reason) periodically.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by RhymeFanTX HTC Rhyme loses 3G setting
Overall the Rhyme is an excellent smartphone. The most aggravating thing is losing the 3G network setting and having to go into Wireless & networks to reset it or turn it on.

I have had this phone for almost a month now, and I am in love with it. This was my first smart phone and would never go back to a basic phone again! I love all of the features it has. It took me 2 days to figure out some things but now I know my phone like the back of my hand. I never have any problems with it at all. I think this is the best phone at the moment. Love it so much!!

i've found that the HTC Rhyme is very easy to use and figure out. This phone has a very unique style, and is the perfect phone for a women!
the docking station is awsome to set your phone on to charge. i'm not sure if i'll use the little charm, but it's way cute.
overall i am very pleased with this phone.

This phone was not one I would have thought of on my own but once I got it home, it is the best. I got because it was free and I needed it for an extra phone. It is wonderful.

The htc Rhyme has been my favorite phone of all the phones Ive had. I had a Blackberry and thought that would always be my fave, but the Rhyme takes the prize. I love that the charger is also a speaker with great sound! Ive had the phone since February and really have NO complaints. I would definitely recommend this phone to others.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by HTCdoubter1 Overheats
I got this phone over the summer (its December now)and really love it. However, I am on my second unit because the first one started overheating & draining the battery. Now my replacement phone is doing the same thing 2 months later. I feel it is a design flaw of the phone. I am seriously reconsidering ever purchasing another phone without a removable battery since this was my first experience with that feature and itâ€™s not really working out. Aside from this problem I find the phone to be the perfect size for me to handle and even though itâ€™s not 4G I had no complaints about the signal or download speed. Too bad I have to get rid of this phone when my upgrade rolls around.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by MomaofTwinBoys Love this phone!
This is my first smart phone. In the past I have had the enV and the Chocolate Touch. I was worried about going to a smart phone. Mainly because of the issues most have with battery life. This phone is SO easy to use and the battery lasts way longer than I thought it would!! I love the charm that comes with it! It's nice to use when I need to put my phone on silent because the boys are sleeping! I love the docking station! The speakers work great and most of all, I love all of the awesome things I can do with the Android system! It's nice to check FB and my email with my phone since im a busy mom! I can't really think of anythine I don't like about it! It's a really great phone!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by JennDo This product is perfect for me. Phone, Internet, Music, EASY
HTC has dialed in the ease of use and learning of its phones. I love that I can sync my contacts, email, work schedule, listen to Pandora, hook up bluetooth in my car...etc. I'm not super attached to my phone, like some people being on them ALL the time. But when I've had to figure out APPS or functions, it's all been self taught and self explanatory. Love my Rhyme.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by tanisha0000 Do not get!!
I would absolutely steer far, far, far, away from getting this product. I have apps installed that I don't even use that cannot get deleted. Currently the phone won't even turn on! I wasn't able to upgrade my software until I had to deleted all of the data on my phone and it still fails to work! I am highly disappointed with this product, I thought it was going to be of good service but it has failed to follow through. I am now in the process of looking for a new phone because this one is just that bad.

I don't like my phone completely. Like when it works, I love it. But that's when it works. I wouldn't buy it again, but I say if you do get it, get the insurance. I've replaced it 4 times. My biggest issues were broken charging port, restarting for no reason, or not telling me when I have messages or calls. But my pics are great, my text messaging is awesome, and I love how easy it is to use.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by sorryrhyme not so sure
I got this phone yesterday and was very excited to get it. I had been holding out to find out if apple was releasing the iphone5 when they only did an update i decided no more waiting and found the rhyme. Loved the color and the fact that it wasnt huge like all the other droids. I got it home charged it and started setting it up to my liking. over night it linked my phone book to my email account (which screwed my whole contact list up), I went in to try to fix a few contacts was able to do one and now my contacts are frozen and I cant call or text. My emails update but dont notify me even though it is set to tell me when i have one, Think I am going to return the phone. If this is a problem I am going to be having its not worth the frustration. Good luck if you chhose this phone.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by Dee1027 HCT Rhyme has many glitches
At first this phone was working somewhat okay. But after about 3 months, it started with the glitches this phone seems to have. I allowed the learning curve and all, so felt the trouble I was having was my fault. But I have now learned to use it's features, but with difficulty. I have set the alarm, checked and rechecked the settings, and I will have the vibrate unchecked and it will only vibrate and no alarm sound! It shuts down at random, when I text, on a call, or in an app. The ringer appears not to be working because it will show missed calls and the phone never made a sound. The phone takes forever to charge and depletes the charge very fast. i do not recommend this phone. It is of poor quality. However, the camera seems to be working very well. Nice pix and all. I will keep it for that only. I'm going to try something different just to get through my contract. For the first time in over 15 yrs w/the big V, I'm feeling very unsatisfied and betrayed.
