Summary: Got it for emergency used when I was working in a very harsh environment! The phone is basic but doing its job VERY GOOD! Battery used to last about 7 days without charging and with more than average use. Have got a small sleeve for it and it was dropped many times. Still in the drawer.
Great reception, great battery, for $25? Yes please!

Summary: I used this phone with prepaid (aka pay-as-you-go) AT&T. Now it's on prepaid T-Mobile. Reception with AT&T wasn't super (that's AT&T's fault) but it was as good or better than my friends' AT&T phones at the time. Reception with T-Mobile is excellent.
Summary: This phone is a basic communication device that works exactly as described in the product review. Slightly larger in size than my ipod nano. Call quality is very good. It has robust battery life. Voice mail can be set up with your cell phone service provider. The clock loses about a minute per day.
Summary: Just what was needed when I lost a phone. It is easy to set up if you have a little time. But not so easy for the less technically inclined. It's a little cluncky and not intuitive for those that want everything to work exactly like the phone they were used to.
Summary: We take cheap phones as our kids are of age where they spoil all phones. Our only requirement is clear voice, VM and call log at low price which we got. Only issue is that it is not sturdy as Nokia phone.
Summary: This phone is perfect for me. I tend to loose/destroy phones and at twenty bucks, it's not a heart breaker when I have to buy a replacement. All I use my phone for is talking so the lack of photos, video and internet is not a concern.
Summary: I bought this phone for my husband who is very active outdoors and this phone is perfect for him. It is virtually indestructible. I like it because I am visually impaired and can read the screen easily. It is a very basic phone for people who just need a phone and do not text very much.
Summary: I had high hopes for this phone and put it on my wishlist since it was introduced in 2006/7. Yes, I knew all about the so-called deficiencies. Yes, expected characters that looked like a clock radio, black and white, poor SMS, etc. So no points deducted for that.
Summary: This phone is definitely not for everybody. It has no features, the craziest thing you can do with it is change the ringtone. The screen is incredibly easy to read, even in direct sunlight. Call clarity is phenomenal and the speaker phone is loud and clear.

Summary: My wife carries this around, just in case of an emergency. We use this in a pre-paid plan and this was the cheapest "Phone" we can find. It did come with an English manual. We use it with AT&T.
