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 They now sell a newer version of this phone.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.
I should have looked at the product in person, before purchasing it.

Summary: My thumbs get in the way of of the small buttoms,causing some un-anticipated changes with many of the features.And if you wear glasses...your in for some difficult moments. Sorry I should have at least actually had one in my hands to check out the phone before hand.....My Mistake!
Summary: This is the worst phone I have ever owned. Not only can u not hear the phone ringing both on outgoing and incoming calls, the "widgets" get missed up. And now my messages are not working? It was keeping the outgoing messages on the screen,even after being sent, now it is not showing they are even being sent. I wish I never bought it.
