Summary: The phone is unlocked but only for voice and texting. Can't use any other apps or add apps since the phone I received was set up for AT&T and I use Consumer Cellular. CC tried everything they could to get the phone to stop recognizing AT&T as the primary carrier. By the way, I would highly recommend Consumer Cellular as a carrier. Customer service is great and no contract is required.
Summary: I wanted a non-smart phone with a touch screen and a slide out keyboard and that's exactly what I got. The menu set-up is a bit confusing though, and you can't personalize it as much as I'm used to, like you can't choose the picture for the lock screen, and the only color options for the menu are black and white. The touch screen isn't all that sensitive but it gets the job done. I wouldn't even try writing a text with the onscreen keyboard.
Summary: The keyboard respond either slowly or faster and is not user friendly. I usually use the keyboard to text faster. My mobile internet doesnt work with this phone and dont know why..This phone is mediocre but recommending it if you have a teenager or just want a basic use of phone...
Web Service Doesn't Work; Otherwise Phone Functioned Ok

Summary: I purchased this phone to use with Consumer Cellular via a SIM card they sent me. Calling (reception, etc.) was great. Using the keyboard for texting took some practice, as the keys are slippery, but eventually I got the hang of it. The touch screen and operating system (menus, customizing icons, etc.) are well designed. The big problem, however, was that web services would not work on CC's network.
Summary: When I first got this phone, I was so upset with how unresponsive the screen was what with it being a new phone and whatnot. After I gave it a couple of days it grew on me. Just remember you get what you pay for. In my opinion, the sliding keyboard is much more effective then the touchscreen. The touchscreen only offers the numbered keypad for texting and then there's the slide out keypad that's not too bad.
