Summary: I loved this phone. I used it for years (I can't remember exactly, maybe 7?) with fairly heavy use. I'm not a fan of the big bulky smartphones. This was small and compact & never noticed it in my pocket. The buttons were easy to use and worked fine after being dropped several times. Easy to navigate and used the internet several times for banking, weather, etc. Keep in mind this review is compairing other flip phones.
Summary: I have a cattle ranch and work way out of range of most towers. I wanted to try this phone but was alittle worried about it. So far it has been the best phone I've found at receiving and sending calls. The battery life is great. The only thing I have found that could be better is the cover is flimsy and the ring tone needs to be louder.
Love the fact that I was able to get this phone without the camera

Summary: I can't have a camera phone at my job. I was happy to find this phone without the camera. I don't subscribe to a data package so this phone is an excellent choice for my usage. The sound quality and battery life is very good.
Summary: great basic phone.i wanted a good phone for just talking.didn't want camera & texting. nice & small size. works as well as my old nokia phone which i got back in 2004. main difference is ringtones are not as loud as old phone & variety of ringtones in phone not that great. sound is clear for regular talking.
Summary: I love this new Nokia Shade for Verizon Wireless. Great update from Nokia since the Nokia Mirage, very nice new features. Great phone, nice battery life, great sound, clear calls and blue tooth. GREAT CELL PHONE!
A good phone has large charactors and a loud ringtone.

Summary: The phone fits nicely in a shirt pocket or jeans without a bulge, easy to operate, only down side that I found is it is too small to cradle on your ear, it has a tendency to actuate the mute button. If you get too far away while on speakerphone the other party can't hear you.
