Summary: I wanted a small lightweight basic phone since all i do is talk and send a few text messages here and there. I don't need to know what all my peeps are doing 24/7 either. Also had to be able to see the screen without my glasses. I tried a Motorola C139, Nokia 2610 and AT&T R225. I almost went with the R225 since the keys and screen were bigger but that makes the phone bigger too. The phone was easy to navigate and set up.
Summary: This phone is simple, small, lightweight, inexpensive, and functional. It has larger sized keys, surprisingly good graphics, long battery life, and they are tough. There is no camera, nor are there many customizable features like tones and colors. It does have a voice memo recorder, memory expansion slot, USB port, internet access, the ability to receive and play videos, alarm clock, quiet vibrate option, and not much else.
Summary: This phone is simple and efficient. Small, portable. Voice recording very handy and fun. I bought this for my kid (10 yrs) and he enjoys it. Very small and almost weightless. Some times I think that returning to simple is better. Low cost. Some times we carry it as walkie talkie.
Summary: I bought this phone because I needed something functional that I could rely on. It's appeal and merit are focused on the fact that it does not come with any superfluous features. There is no touch screen, video playback, mp3 feature, email or applications, but that means that there are none of these things to worry about going wrong or, more importantly, to have to pay for.
Summary: this isnt the ebay seller's fault, the phone is just crap. i got my first one and had a HORRIBLE echo when i called a landline to the point my mother couldnt understand me. so i returned it. then i got my second one, which last about 3 months before one day it wouldnt even turn on. the ringtones are awful (coming from someone who now owns an old nokia 3390 and cant download ringtones), the call quality is lousy, the phone is cheap, the alarm clock never worked properly.
Summary: I was looking for a phone to replace my fancy touch screen that busted... I decided to go for something simple and cheap because i go through a lot of phones. This phone has been perfect for that. It may not have all the bells and whistles that other new phones have but it does everything that I need it to do (which is basically just calling and texting). It was a great buy for the price I payed... $21!!!
