Summary: For anyone who doesn't need (or want) all the bells and whistles of the newest phones, this item is excellent. It is the Sherman tank of cell phones - short of dropping it in water, there's pretty much nothing you can do to this phone that will make it stop working. Unlike the new phones, the phone won't crack or break if it's dropped (and we've all dropped our phones many times over). I had to replace my original phone because I messed up the USB port.
Summary: I bought this as a replacement for another basic phone. It's features are good for what it is. Really good pics if you remember to check the camera settings first. The battery life may be average, and is not the best if you talk or text a lot. I do, and find myself charging twice a day. Comparing this phone to others in its class I rated high. It's sleek and easy to use. Overall it's a good basic phone.
Summary: I've purchased 2 of these phones and both work fine to a point. Reception is not the best even in a strong CDMA signal area, when it gets to a so so area, no bars register for signal. The EVDO data signal searching simply drains the battery in almost nothing flat. The good part is, even on one bar, voice is clear and strong. Finish is well done, construction is solid. The phone gets it done but there are others that are better on the market now.
Summary: Purchased phone for xmas. No opinion on phone. Phone had a loud hum when a call was made and phone would not recieve incoming calls. Was able to text. Made company/place aware of problems and they refunded the purchase amount no questions asked.
The price for what I bought it for, I shouldn't complain. But I will.

Summary: I bought this to replace the exact same phone that I broke. This replacement works... but not as well as its predecessor. My former phone would only need chargeds once or twice a week, whereas this one barely lasts 12 hours. I thought is was just the battery, so I used my old battery. No luck.
Summary: I purchased this phone as a replacement for one that got destroyed in a car accident. Nice new phone but for me to use any games, etc. on it, I was told by my service provider that I would need to purchase the software for it as it is an outdated model..........so sad as I loved this phone.
