worked really well in France; should've bought 2 so we could separate and still communicate!
25 March 2014
Summary: We took this to France in September and it worked really well. We bought an Orange sim card when we got to Paris for communicating with the places in other cities we were going to in France. With help from the Orange store salesperson, we were able to get an unlimited with-in France plan (with texting, too) for 10euros for the 2 weeks we were there.
Summary: I know this is a cheap phone but I expected a little more. Very cheap plastic. Worried may not take much wear an tear. As a phone it works ok but nothing great. Other cheap phones are better deal.
Summary: Setup was easy. Just pop in the sim card and your ready to go .Keep in mind that the case is all plastic and feels flimsy .What would you expect for a phone that costs under $30? Other than that the phone works great. I highly recommend this phone to anyone on a budget.
Summary: The phone never worked for me and three of them that I bought are totally unusable outside USA. This is what I heard from customer service when asked for an update to the problem ticket. " We are still working on the issue. It may take more than 55 days to resolve this issue. Should you have any additional questions please contact us, via E-Mail or 1-877-602-8762 (Monday-Friday 9:30am-5:30pm EST). Thank you for choosing BLU!
Summary: This is a very basic, inexpensive phone, which was what I was looking for. I wanted a phone that I could use while vacationing in France that would simply require insertion of a local SIM card to work. It worked as I had expected it to. However, you do have to explore the various features in order to figure out how each one works (it does not have an intuitive menu). I never did figure out how to enter names and phone numbers into the contact list.
Summary: It didn't say it was dual sim; the phone keeps cutting out and is static frequent; can only keep one photo without a memory card. I don't think that the description was enough to know what I was getting into. The FM radio works fine, as well as the flashlight. The manual is written with such small letters, it is pretty much unreadable. You get what you pay for, I guess.
Summary: Very satisfied with this smartphone. Bought SIM cards in Croatia and in France. They worked perfectly for calls within the countries and calls to the USA. Highly recommend this phone if travelling abroad.
Summary: I needed a GSM phone for use in Europe while travelling. Didn't use it much but it worked fine. Charger is compatible with European power but needs plug adapter to fit . Can be charged from a USB port too. I bought a prepaid SIM card at a tobacco shop when I got there ...10 Euros. Setup and use was a snap. Note dual SIM card capability would allow it to become a local phone in two different countries or have two phone numbers from the same place.
