Summary: OK, this is my emergency phone. I will only use it to take with me for calling AutoClub or the hospital! (I don't have another cell-phone). So for that purpose it seems fine. It is slim, light, fairly easy to use. Takes and receives call fine, audio quality acceptable.
Summary: I only use my phone for basic calls and an occasional text which is why I have a prepaid phone at 10 cents per minute. I dont want to pay all that money to the cell phone companys for the smart phones and internet although if I had the extra cash I would.
Summary: No problem with this phone. Long stand by battery life. Can't beat the price. Bought a gel cover to protect it and it feels much sturdier now. The only sad thing is you cannot download new ringtones to it.
