Excerpt: About a month ago I dropped my phone in the toilet. I know, it was bound to happen sooner or later right? I tried everything to save it but sadly it died on me and I had to mourn the loss, suck it up and buy a new phone.
Good basic phone for people who don't need or can't afford fancier models.

Summary: I've used MetroPCS since I bought my first phone, and this is the model I currently use. I've never been a fan of smart phones or touch-screens, so I mostly stick to plain old number-pad phones that can't be so easily damaged and are usually less expensive to buy/maintain. I've had my HP M635 (this model) for almost two years, and use it mostly for regular calls and texting. It has a weather app I've also found useful.
Summary: Reading the other reviews, you must have gotten a better version then I did. Entry level phone that was sold for $ 50 at Metro PCS stores at the time. They now sell a newer version of this phone. We have two of these and they both have the same issues. Battery life is crap with Metro PCS constantly sending you advertising 24 hours a day. If you turn the phone off, the battery keeps a decent charge.
