Still useful in 2015 (But buy from a trustworthy seller)

Summary: I bought this phone despite it being 6 years old as of this writing (May 2015) since I needed an interim phone for 4 months (when I'd get a new one). This phone still works 100% with iMessage (which is useful to people like me with family overseas who also have iPhones).
I previously posted that I was happy with the service

Summary: I previously posted that I was happy with the service. I'm changing that feedback. The phone was sent promptly, and appeared to be in good working order. From the start, it wouldn't hold a charge very long. I changed charging cords. No improvement. I paid $50 for installation/new battery.
Summary: Functional.... However, it crashes every day!!! Whatever app I'm using crashes n the phones main menu comes up.... I can re open the app... But, it's frustrating!!! Not tech savey... But I'd say it has a prob in the main processor!!!
Excerpt: This phone is an alright phone. Build isnt the greatest, cracks easily. Calls are good, iOS is easy to use although the hardware couldnt support the software after iOS6 so it ran very slow. Camera is poor but UI is good. Everyday use is ok and battery was hopeless for me.
Pros: good calls, safari and chrome are strong, Music app is fantastic, Text input good, Easy to use UI
Cons: Battery life poor, Low resolution display, Camera bad resolution, Poor build, very weak phone
