Summary: i purhased this phone on dec. 1, 2013 and received it on dec. 6, 2013. upon opening the phone, the outside looked fine, however the inside looked very worn. i charged the phone for 24 hours before attempting to use it. it worked for about 3 hours the next day. it kept freezing up and no rebooting would unfreeze it. i had to remove the battery and then restart the phone. it would immediately freeze back up.
Summary: I think that being able to buy a brand new smart phone $40 was a great deal. The problem is that if it breaks or isn't working properly there is no where to get it fixed because it is out of production. The browser button my phone fell off after only two week so now I have to go through the headache of getting a whole new phone.
Summary: I went from the curve to this, and the features were less friendly, except the camera is a whole lot better than the curve. This phone came out in 2009, so the technology is lacking. The battery was a test battery and I had to replace it immediately, adding a $45 dollar battery. I could have gotten a much better phone for the final cost of this product.
Summary: Having previously owned Blackberry's I thought this phone would be a cheap replacement until the 9310 came out... I was dead wrong. Upon arriving, the the scroll ball was already coming loose from the phone and the phone froze often. I could hardly use it, not to mention it has a odd sized charger so if I left my charger at home or in the car, I couldn't use anyone elses which resulted in me having a dead battery a lot of the time.
