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.
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.
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. very poor quality phone, and I am not satisfied, i would recommend verison
