Summary: I wanted a basic phone for the purpose of being able to make calls. I have found that the battery lasts for days before needing a charge. Have been able to access cell service in many rural areas with this phone that I had no access to with a prior phone. Call volume is excellent. It was unlocked and I had no problems with my AT&T account or service after inserting my SIM card. I would highly recommend this phone to those in search of something other than a smartphone.
Summary: I had two phones on a trip to Oman, this and a Samsung. The other phone's battery lasted a lot longer (5+ days instead of 3+ days), but this phone always worked. It never dropped a call, unlike the Samsung that was dropping calls left and right, even from the very same location. Don't expect it to be very smart, it is a very basic phone.
Good so far-- See below for AT&T configuration instructions

Summary: I just received this phone this week, and so far it seems quite good. It has better reception than my five year old Nokia which it has replaced. Best of all, I was able to backup all my contacts from my old phone and import them into this new one using the Nokia PC Suite which is downloadable for free from the Nokia website. My only complaint is that the product documentation does not include more detailed explanations.
Summary: I like this phone. I have been a pre-paid user for some time because of the low cost (approx. $12/month or so). My last phone finally died and so I purchased this unlocked phone from Amazon (Their delivery was terririfc). I was able to start using the phone right away and to my surprise it has a radio built in which is a great bonus. I was able to listen to my favorite radio station as I went to lunch today.
Excerpt: Good,simple and cheap phone for those who still like to have keypad. Works fine with PC suite, there I can update calendar, phonebook og more features. But it does not do the same things for example as the new Nokia Lumia.
Summary: I was looking for a cheap phone with bluetooth and which works in the US and in Europe. This was the cheapest I could find (without doing a proper research, I admit). The 3G feature makes only sense in countries where you get cheap (email-only/slow) data plans. If you spent 50 bucks a month for a data plan, obviously buy a proper smartphone. The phone has a classic, nice look, but feels a little bit cheap-it's all plastic. You probably can't expect more for 80$.
