Summary: I just ordered this phone from a seller on amazon who stated this phone would work with Verizon wireless, and Verizon informed me that it does NOT! I was unable to activate this phone on my Verizon account, Verizon explained that they use to authorize use of this model, but that they no longer do.However after trying to activate it from the phone itself, it did work, a very frustrating day, I don't believe that this is reflective of the device itself, mainly Verizon...
Good phone, charging port broke though. I circumvented the problem and I still use this phone.

Summary: My charging port broke after a month or so because of a manufacturer's defect. This is a common issue with these phones. I got a battery charger and spare battery from Amazon for like $10. It's a pretty nice phone though. Sometimes it'll be weird with certain apps (snapchat, for example), but it does what I need it to do. This has been my main phone for months and I like it.
Summary: I ordered a phone that was advertised as NEW in the box. I received the original box, but the phone had three (3) screen liners, on top of each other. The green alert light never functioned, and the GPS system never worked. The phone I received was NOT NEW! I'm being generous with three stars because this was a case of false advertising. Even a refurbished phone should be fully functional.
Summary: Droid isnt the greatest. Would restart itself at least once a day for no reason. Sound would work sometimes then sometimes it wouldnt. Was a somewhat okay phone until it got dropped. Then didn't work anymore. Be nice if they made them better...more durable.
Summary: Registering the phone with page plus cellular was very easy (I had worried, needlessly, that it wouldn't be compatible). Unlike some sellers mentioned in other reviews, Oakland Wireless did NOT include a memory card in the phone. Never having had a phone that accepted memory cards and not realizing the SD card wasn't in the list of included accessories, it took a while, with no help from Oakland wireless (but they did respond quickly to me emails asking for help), to...
Summary: I'm new to the world of smart phones, and I wanted an inexpensive way (cost about $135 at Amazon) to see if I even wanted to have one. And whether I could get by without a $100 monthly bill. Where I live only the Verizon system offers decent service. I didn't realize it, but you need to figure on buying a micro SDHC card, or this phone is pretty useless - like no camera function. Added about $28 to the cost for 32 gigs. So why do I give it only a 3?
