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.
Great camera and text messaging system, awful battery and average battery.

Summary: Alright, I'm coming off the Samasung Freeform III, so I'll be comparing the two in this review. Overall it is a good phone, but there are some things I like about the Freeform more than the Pinnacle. First, the calls are good, main reason for a phone. The texting is way, way better and faster than the Freeform. I mean texts only take only a range of 1-2 seconds at the latest most of the time to send.
Summary: Let me say I wasn't expecting much but this little phone surprised me. I read reviews about bad voice quality but haven't seemed to have that problem at all. Much nicer than the LG Contour (Craptour) in my opinion. I also had to laugh when I walked into a Metro PCS store to see that they were charging $69 for this $39 phone on Amazon.
Summary: the phone is a great size! they keys on the keyboard are a good size! the keys light up so in dark areas you can se them easy! great battery life charges fast! can get to the battery easy and the mini SD card also! the Camera is a 1.3 MP but takes good pics for the MP size! love the speaker phone! load and clear! the screen is a good size! clear! only down fall I see is as far as I know when you get a call and or text no reminder? the ringer is load! so you CAN hear it!
Summary: I have had the phone 2 months, and I really like it. Texting is really fun in chat mode. Battery seems to last 4 days with normal use. I don't have a micro SD card yet, so I cannot test the music player features.
Pros: The contacts menu has a feature for just your favourite people. Chat mode for texting makes it easy to follow a long-running conversation. Gorgeous screen. Espanol customization.
Cons: No countdown timer. No way to designate a primary phone number if your contact prefers that you call the house first instead of the cell. Cannot customize the hot keys. Text message alert does not change volume with the ringtone.
