Good...... for some

Cowboy, Amazon
2 August 2014
  • Summary: It's a love/hate relationship. I know, by now, everybody has a "smart" phone and basic phones may a well be rocks, but this is what my current plan allows me to use and I just don't really need a "smart" phone anyway (getting old thing). I need durable phones too. The phone works well in most every way except, as others have said (and I seem to have ignored), YOU CAN'T HERE IT RING !! unless you work in a library or someplace quiet. And IT DOESN'T VIBRATE HARD ENOUGH !!

Not loud enough

CK, Amazon
31 May 2014
  • Summary: I like my Octane, basically because it's very much like my enV3 I passed down to my granddaughter. BUT ... even though it's set at HIGH, since the speakers are inside the phone, with no outside opening, it's not very easy to hear when it rings. I have to put the phone face down to hear it a little better if I'm not right next to it. The other problem is the 2-minute reminder if I miss a text .... it's VERY LOW, and there's no way to make it louder.

Good phone, but...

Thomas Steiner, Amazon

  • Summary: Both LCD screens collect dust easily. The outside LCD has irremovable smudges on it that make the screen a bit blurry. Other than that, I like the phone. I just have to deal with it for a couple of months before my contract ends.

Slow, but at least it's not a "smart" phone.

  • Summary: It runs circles around smart phones in regard to speed and usefulness, but what flip phone doesn't? The buttons are in a very uncommon placement, though.

VERY DISAPPOINTED

brginhunter, Amazon
18 December 2013
  • Summary: THIS PHONE HAD GOOD RATINGS SO I DECIDED TO TRY IT. THE VOLUME ON THIS PHONE IS VERY LOW COMPARED TO OTHERS. IF IT RINGS, YOU BETTER HOPE THAT IT IS NEAR BY SO YOU CAN HEAR IT. ALSO, THE BATTERY LIFE IS VERY SHORT, SO IF YOU TALK/USE THIS PHONE MUCH, YOU CAN EXPECT TO CHARGE IT A COUPLE OF TIMES A DAY.

Love the Octane - HATE the Restart Problem

50Phones, Phone Arena
27 August 2011
  • Excerpt: I had the phone for less than two days when I first started having problems. I was texting, and I pushed the FN key and then the M key to get the graphics menu, and the phone power cycled itself. Luckily I was in the Verizon store, and so I showed someone and they checked everything and it was all fine, but whenever I try to use the graphics, the phone power cycles. The phone was promptly exchanged and the replacement phone does the same thing.
  • Pros: Just about everything
  • Cons: Battery power cycling
