Summary: I do not use a cell phone. I purchased this one for emergency use (ie. traveling). It has plenty of options for me. The battery only stays charged for three days. That's without any use. The function buttons are awkward for my large hands. But, I guess you get what you pay for.
Summary: I bought one of these on sale at Fred's store for $15 on sale. I liked the style, the compact size and was looking forward to using it as an MP3 player! But, guess what? The earphone jack requires an adapter! As a phone, I think it sucks! Reception is below average and battery life is terrible! As mentioned by others, the battery door falls off easily so the battery falls out ending your call.
Self-ejecting back cover and battery; extremely poor construction

Summary: Major problem: The battery cover would fall off in my pocket. This phone has no battery retaining dimple or clip so once the cover bails, the battery freely falls out into the pocket as well. Thus, 1 star was given for 'ease of use' as it really sucks having to reassemble the phone and wait 2 minutes to get a signal in order to make a call. Also, just to note, there is no record of calls missed when the phone is off. The silver lining is an above average battery life.
Trust me, even if it is really cheap, it ain't worth it.

Summary: This is my third Net10 phone. Compared to others this one is really, really bad! I have had only headaches with it in my four months with it. Signal is always bad. Most of the time I can't even make calls or receive, so I have to torn it off and on so that it works, and even then the phone won't even turn on sometimes and just keeps vibrating. It reacts really slowly when pressing the keys. May freeze from time to time.
