20 October 2014
Summary: I ordered this for my husband who is a bit challenged, well, really challenged when it comes to technology. He pocket dials with his current phone and wanted a flip phone to avoid this problem. He wanted a texting phone which (it turns out) is nearly impossible to find in a flip phone. This one advertised a qwerty keyboard so I gave it a shot. After fooling around with it for a couple of days I didn't even give it to him.
Excerpt: I bought this phone from a guy on the street for like $8.00 straight to the point CONS: THIS PHONE HAD THE WORST SIGNAL EVER ( but I think it was the carrier Movistar SLV) because when I switch my Sim card to a Digicel SLV it got better signal. But for sure this phone dont work with Movistar.
Summary: The battery: The battery drained only half a day of use after a full day charge and I have to recharge it again. The internet: I can log on to my house's WiFi but I can't choose mobile network for internet. The signal: Always appears SOS on the top corners and has less than 2 bars of signals most times! Overall: Not worth the money.
Summary: I bought this phone thinking it was new but when I received it on the back there was a label that said it is a remanufactured phone. Now where on the site did it indicate it was remanufactured and it read 'new' on the purchase options. Additionally, I received the wrong charger for it. This to me does not sound like it is a new phone...
Summary: the top cover of this phone EASILY gets scratched up, but what's even worst is that the screen on the inside gets scratched up...BY THE PHONE'S BUTTONS!!!!...just by opening & closing the phone. Asides from that, this phone is a little laggy (not too bad) & it has no qwerty keyboard. Save yourself the headache, & forget about this phone.
