Not Impressed...

A. Tweedle "Tweety-Bird", Amazon

  • Summary: To be honest, prepaid services are the hot new money-savers these days, but it is important that you are getting your full money's worth. This phone is not giving you the best deal. Straight Talk wireless offers the most for your money by far. I pay $45 for unlimited calls and texts, plus get great coverage with it being on the Verizon network. I'm just spreading the word :)No other prepaid plans compare!

Functional, but flawed

  • Summary: Other than that, it's a good solid phone like only Nokia seem able to do. Seems to give decent reception. Unfortunately at this level you get no connectivity to a PC, so you have to manually enter your contacts. It's an unpretentious phone, and it works, but it has a few unnecessary flaws: 1. No non-musical ringtone. There isn't one which *just rings*. I ended up choosing some sort of buzzing thing which sounds like a woodpecker, which was the least offensive. 4.

Tiny Screen

  • Summary: This phone works fine, but the screen is far too small to read or write text messages. The screen should be at least 30% bigger.

Good beater phone, mid grade, seems average in options

  • Summary: Slim, good price, lightweight, affordable for on the go so if it gets trashed I am not out a lot of clams. I tend to go thru several phones a year because of my lifestyle. This phone has a tendency to be hard to hear it ring in my pocket, I have missed several phone calls because it is so quiet.

No Picture Video Messaging

  • Summary: I expected a simple cheap phone, BUT this one does not even have the ability to receive pictures, video messaging (MMS). I think your best bet is going to be a pay as you go phone and just pop your sim card in there. It will work and not require a new contract or will not require you to purchase new minutes like a pay as you go phone. Dont get me wrong, the phone works, it is just seriously lacking with today's MMS features.

  • Summary: The phone was supposed to be unlocked and work in all areas where GSM was available, however it was not true. It did not work in any part of India or The UK.

Nokia 1208

  • Summary: This is a cheap replacement phone for a cheap phone. As a communications device, it actually has more useful phone features than the Nokia 2610 it replaced. Sure the screen is low resolution, but the numbers are easier to see, it has a louder speaker, and its easy to use. The reason for a "4" was the short battery life. I need a phone, not a phone-camera-PDA-music player. I have an iPod Touch for the PDA, music player, and portable internet.
