Good Overall Phone

  • Excerpt: Considering the phones for a prepaid service you shouldnt expect something extraordinary. The phone is nice and compact, stylish, functional and has a nice color screen. it has a cool mirror inside the battery door and is nice and loud. The only bad thing is the battery life. Dont buy this phone if you plan on talking alot.. it serves as a backup to my verizon 7000. And it lasts me just the day without ever using it. So plan on buying a backup battery.

Boost Mobile i285

  • Excerpt: This is a cool little phone. It has fun stuff like voice recording and java apps. I don't like the battery life and the display is hard to see in bright daylight. Otherwise it's cool and I think anyone who doesn't want a flip phone should get it.
