Summary: A special 'feature' in the phone allows it to dial 911 (emergency) even while the screen is locked. I believe any button can be pressed 3 times consecutively and it automatically duals 911. I have had the phone call 911 MANY times while sitting in my purse. A few days ago it even texted 911.
Summary: Been using this phone for about 3 years already. It's perfect for writing texts, I like the full keyboard. I get decent reception in my area and it works inside the store where I work where a lot of people complain about no service. The internet feature is terrible.
Summary: I buy my minutes every 3 + months. I pay an average of $11 to $16 a month for this phone. I use it carefully and sparingly. If I'm close to land line and I get a call, I call them right back from the other phone.
Summary: The phone works well so far. I purchased 2 of these phones. I could not activate with the online services, so I called customer service. It took forever to activate and the people that I talked with did not speak English well. Had do go through a series of code numbers that went on forever.
