Be careful with cheap imported Chinese Cell Phones
1 August 2010
Summary: THIS IS JUST A QUICK NOTE TO EBAY CONSUMERS TO BE CAREFUL WHEN YOU PURCHASE A CHEAP CHINESE IMPORTED CELL PHONE. 1) IT HASN'T BEEN TESTED BY THE UL LABS HERE IN THE UNITED STATES. 2) MOST OF THESE PHONES HAVE POOR SIGNAL QUALITY AND THIS CAUSES THE BATTERY TO DRAIN VERY RAPIDLY. 3) CHARGER MIGHT POSE A RISK OF FIRE. 4) WARRANTY THAT COMES WITH THESE CHINESE PHONES ARE HARD TO DEAL WITH.
Summary: My husband had me get him a basic phone when we renewed our AT&T plan. I'd always had Nokias in the past and LOVED them. They were so reliable, I dropped my phone in water TWICE and dried it out, put the battery back in and never had an issue with my Nokia phones. So, naturally I thought this would be a great choice. I even looked up the phone on various tech websites and not one mentioned the fact that this phone SUCKS. 1. freezes ALL the time 2.
Summary: I got this phone from an AT&T store for $40 and a 2year contract. I got ripped off. I could have gotten it from AT&T on the net for free!! The Bluetooth is problematical, some times it works with my Jawbone and some times it doesn't. It has a camera, but the AT&T manual that came with it is useless, it is 32 pages long, with very small and blurry pictures.
