Summary: I have been using this phone for a little over a year now. It can be decent in some areas but fails in others. -This phone turned slow after months of use. I found it froze at points so I had to turn it off then back on. -The battery life lasts 3 days at MOST. If you text even a few times or listen to music, it'll probably last a day or less. This is sad because even with minor use, the battery dies fast. Even with no use, it can die within a few hours.
Summary: I have the same phone and i will give it 3.5 stars . like you said Then this POS phone shuts off unexpectedly without me turning it off, freezes up with the Metro screen showing, & the cover where the jack for the battery charger is, has broken off too. but my fone can hold a charge for six through seven hours , && i play music && text all day long.
Summary: very slow. phone freezes for about 3 seconds prior to receiving a message. often freezes for no reason and the battery has to be removed. poor service, and cannot receive text updates from facebook or twitter.
