this phone wasnt what i was expecting

austingirl08, Ebay

  • Summary: I bought the phone three weeks ago and was immediately impressed with the number of features available on this inexpensive phone. It has a 1M-pixel camera, video camera, and speakerphone. The phone's size is perfect for carrying in a pocket and the battery has a pretty good lifespan of roughly 4 hours. My only complaint is that the phone stores music and pictures in three different spots and locks some of them so that I can't send them in messages.

  • Excerpt: I don't understand why so many people are thrilled with this phone. Yes it surfs the web, and texts. When I click certain buttons while I try to get on the web, it will shut off. It shuts off randomly too. Sometimes I can't make calls or send text messages so I have to restart it. When I'm texting and go to push "P" the "O" gets typed as well. The buttons are all wearing and I haven't had it very long. I can't wait for my contract to expire!

  • Excerpt: This is the absolute WORST PHONE I have every owned! Before I hit you with all the reason why I will give you the SINGLE positive thing about this phone....the CAMERA! This phone was designed by someone who does not USE a cell phone for anything other than talking and taking pictures…..Why because if you try to use all the features you are going to be VERY DISAPPOINTED!
  • Pros: Camera takes nice pictures.
  • Cons: Freezes & shuts off when texting & new message comes also @ random., Alarm set for 5:45am went off @ midnight then froze up, couldn't shut off, had to remove battery., The key guard lock allows answer key to work without sliding the phone up first! Rigorous steps after every call/text needed to actually PASSWORD LOCK, UGH!, Don’t call a business & try to dial a last name in the phone directory, as no intelligence programmed to know A should be 2. Bigger joke, try to c...

Not the right choice

  • Excerpt: I have to agree this phone is a P.O.S. Not only did mine do all that...when given what Alltel calls a new phone (Really just a  refurbished phone). Mine wont charge it will connect to the charger, but will not add any life to the battery. The phone lags like you wouldn't believe...Don;t get the phone and save yourself some money.
  • Pros: Keyboard
  • Cons: Everything else!

  • Excerpt: Well, I've had my motorola hint qa30 for about two weeks now. When I first got it i loved the phone and the full keyboard. I have the cricket version. The phone is good for teting web browsing and calling and luckly my phone doesn't turn off on me while teting and doing something else at once.

GRRRR is right.

  • Excerpt: This is the worst phone ever.  I am now on my fourth one.  That's right FOURTH.  It has been shutting off on it's own just like the other people have said.  Sometimes it will turn back on other times it won't.  Oh...I got my first phone in January.  Each phone has lasted about a month, and then the issues begin.  So BEWARE.  For those of you who are thinking that you have had your phone a month and all is well, watch out...your time will come!!!  The style is great.
