Summary: Nice basic phone. Call and/or text. Simple. I bought this phone to go on an empty line with my service provider. This phone is nothing more than an inconvience fee, since I can't get out of contract.
Summary: I became tired of smartphones, so I ordered other more simple phones to try out. This was one of many. After this phone arrived, I discovered that it was originally designed for the AT&T GO prepaid line. As a basic voice phone, it is great. It is small and fits easily in my front pocket or in the palm of my hand. The basic phone services is adequate. However, as to a feature phone, it is not.
A good cheap phone for the very few of us who only need a telephone.

Summary: This is a VERY SIMPLE phone! There is no Bluetooth, camera, GPS, or music player. It simply makes and receives phone calls. Good reception! The places that were "dead zones" with other phones are not with this one. The sound quality is clear and loud. My 63-year-old ears, with or without the hearing aids, work fine with this phone. This phone takes a "standard" handsfree with a 3.5 mm plug.
Excerpt: This phone works great for texting and calling with a standard keypad, since you can use T9 to avoid being too slow (Its worth learning if you aren't used to it). Plenty of user memory for basic phone - 46 MB. The only drawback is that it doesn't receive picture messages - you don't even get any text that was sent minus the pic. You will not know anyone even tried to send you a message if it contains a picture or any other media.
Excerpt: I switched from my iphone4 to this phone. I was tired of how dependent on my iphone I was becoming. Anyways, about this phone. I paid $20 at target, and I am thoroughly impressed. If you are looking for a phone that does voice and texting only, this is the phone to get.
1. Phone OS and layout are fluid. For a small cheap phone it feels like a lot of thought went into optimizing the menu.
2. T9 texting input, for me it's almost as fast as my iphone.
Summary: If you're looking for a basic phone then this is for you. However, if you want a phone that has more features you are better off going with the financially cheaper Samsung A107 or one of the more expensive GoPhones. The U2800A does NOT have the ability to send/receive MMS messaging so you're basically stuck with the wallpapers that are stock unless you want to spend exorbitant rates for data. I'm still trying to figure out how to connect the phone to my Win 7 PC.
Summary: The first 3G basic cell phone for people that want a PHONE not an entertainment device! Works perfectly. Clear, Loud, Easy to use! Just exactly what a cell phone SHOULD be. Great reception, no dropped calls, uses 3G channels so you don't drop calls or sound like you're talking in an aquarium. Just put your AT&T SIM card in one and talk away. Great replacement for broken or lost contract phones. AT&T got this one RIGHT!
Summary: Bought based on the specs at the AT&T site. Made the assumption that it would be like the Nokia 2320 it was replacing only better because it has 3G. Boy was i wrong. The first major issue for me was that you can not connect it to a computer to transfer wallpapers and ring tones even though that is one of the things it lists in the specs. There are no games on the phone and you can not install any from Mobile Rated or anywhere else.
