Summary: we tried two cell phones and neither worked, so I sent them back. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
Summary: Had this same model for years. It finally died. Couldn't blame it though. Bought a coulpe of other phones (with other plans), but always had my original as a backup. I like flips. Anyway, it finally died as I said. Found this replacement on Amazon. Brand new. Outstanding! Even got it early. Charged it. Inserted sim card. Right from the get go started messing up. Losing calls(in and out). Losing messages like crazy.
Summary: How do I hate thee? Let me count the ways........ 1. The noise it makes when turning it on and off. 2. In order to use the phone, I have to be standing outside in a area completely devoid of trees, buildings, power lines, even cars. If it is a cloudy day or raining, forget using it. 3. The stupid PTT button on the side is in the way. 4. Ringtones installed on the phone - where did they find that awful stuff?
Summary: This has got to be the Yugo of all cell phones. The loud start up noise is one item, the inability to download ringtones, or much else for that matter, and the lousy service. Our Nokia phones worked just fine on Cingular (this week AT&T, next week ???) but this one can't seem to hold a signal to save it's sad little soul. You'd be better off with a pair of tin cans and some kite string. Cheaper by far and considerably more reliable.
