Summary: It is my belief that when you buy a phone, it comes with a battery. This phone arrived without a battery. If I am wrong in assuming that a battery would be expected to arrive with the phone, please advise me of that fact.
Summary: This is my second cell phone and I hate it, I have had it more than a year and I still find the buttons confusing and I can't get my photos off the camera. I plug the phone to my PC via USB and nothing. Everything says I have to email the photos, but unfortunaly the phone will not email I think it requires another level of service. But there is no money in the budget for more service. I want my old LG phone back.
Summary: PLEASE DON'T GET THIS PHONE FOR A TEENAGER. MY OPINION IT IS DESIGNED FOR AN OLDER PERSON 50 AND ABOVE WHO ONLY WANTS TO TALK AND NOT INTERESTED IN DOWNLOADS OR TEXT MESSAGES.MAYBE SOME ELEMENTARY KIDS WHO WILL FEEL GOOD TO ONLY HAVE A PHONE AND TO TALK TO THEIR SCHOOL FRIENDS.THIS IS JUST NOT FOR ME, SORRY I HAD TO RETURN THIS ITEM I WAS NOT SATISFIED FOR THIS USE IT WOULD GIVE. I LIKE MY RING TONES AND MUSIC DOWNLOADS.
Excerpt: PROS - can use like a phone CONS - ring tones too quiet - can't do anything if you are expecting a call. Back at store within 2 hours of purchase, sales assoc. blue toothed an obnoxious 1960s phone ring that can be heard. No good ring tones, I'm a former Nokia customer, so expect good tones to diversify my phone book. Sound quality okay, but signal strength weak. Camera, don't even go there. Style, pretty drab.
Excerpt: We've both had this phone for about a year. It's a good durable that is perfect for a person that needs to do basic things. like texting and calling. the VGA camera sucks. the camera is worse than basic. Everything is blurry. its like hell when you zoom in all the way. but, it's a very durable phone. with the rubber cofruimposite outer layer. and thick body. this phone did stand up to 3 minutes in water filled with chlorlye. the front screen is now dead cause of that.
Pros: its a phone
Cons: We've both had this phone for about a year. It's a good durable that is perfect for a person that needs to do basic things. like texting and calling. the VGA camera sucks. the camera is worse than basic. Everything is blurry. its like hell when you zoom in all the way. but,
Excerpt: I got this phone from Boost Mobile and I am on my 2nd one in two days. They both shorted out or something and will not exceed past the "Boost Mobile" front screen... I have never had problems with a cell phone like this in my life and I have had some crappy little ones before. Pros: I thought it was cute shinny.... um.. thats it Cons: freezing not working slow horrible horrible phone the biggest sham i have ever seen by a phone company.. do NOT buy this thing!!!
Excerpt: first of all, the camera is HORRIBLE! the pics come out blurry unless you are completely still with the phone and the thing you are taking a picture with. the keypad is ugly! the graphics are like all the other motorola phones, horrible and cheap! when the phone is on silent and you recieve a text, it makes an annoying beeping sound. it is thick and heavy! does not have FM radio (which i really dont care but still another flaw that they said it did have!
Excerpt: Pros: Great sound quality (when signal strength is at least 1 bar -- which is not often) Cons: This is the 2nd W385 I have had in one month. Both have had really poor standby time and the 2nd phone has awful signal strength. The advertised standby time is "as high as 440 hours". Though I charged my phone this morning, and despite having talked for only 5 minutes today, the battery died at 10 p.m.
