2nd Best Feature Phone I Ever Used

Skyla Cowan, Amazon
4 September 2013
  • Summary: The phone is capable of listening to music and has music controls on the front, is perfect for screwing Verizon which is always a plus, and you can't go wrong with a flip phone. my niece absolutely loves this phone. I fully recommend this phone for anyone who wants to entertain their kids, nephews or in my case, niece.

It's the best there is. only because they don't carry any better.

  • Excerpt: Number pad is good. Feels good and is laid out well. battery sucked, but extended capacity battery lives long. same VZW GUI, which i don't like. But it has Motorola intelligent texting. camera needs auto focus and flash. SPeaker is nice and loud. And I've taken hundreds of underwater pics in the pool.
  • Pros: waterproof, simple
  • Cons: no flash, no autofocus

Barrage is good... if you know the tips.

Anonomous, Phone Arena
12 May 2011
  • Excerpt: Good for moderately rough use. Has a nice rubberized grip around the edge. Tip: an SD card is optional; but if you do add an SD card it will use a lot of battery power. Tip: before, during, and especially after locking the battery cover, the cover must be pressed down all around the edges to get the gasket to seal. Tip: download the app to backup your contacts online.
  • Pros: Rugged., Water resistant., Rubber grip prevents slipping from hand.
  • Cons: Optional SD card drains battery., Interface can be very slow at times.

All and All A Good Phone

Ed J, Phone Arena
13 September 2010
  • Excerpt: I purchased this phone in May 2010. I acquired the extra capacity battery at the start because of all of the reviews referencing poor battery life. After about a week the battery life did drop drastically. I'm a systems engineer and I decided to investigate why. I found that there was a software function that was not terminating and was increasing the battery drain by a large amount.

Not Waterproof

teenkid222, Phone Arena
22 August 2010
  • Excerpt: This phone is pretty good, but a few problems. The battery cover doesn't close all the way, which wasn't an issue for me because I bought the extended battery which comes with a different battery case. I've only used the original battery once, and it is true that this battery doesn't hold a charge long, but with the extended battery I bought, the phone can last almost 48 hours. This might not seem very long, but I use my phone for texting constantly nonstop every day.
  • Pros: Water Resistant,, Extended battery has decent battery life,, Great Bluetooth capabilities,, Easy to use.
  • Cons: NOT waterproof as they claim,, Original battery cover is not waterproof or even water resistant,, Extended battery is a bit bulky,, Micro SD card is difficult to get out without taking the battery out.
