A pain to use not easy, poor speaker phone and voice dial quality.
3 May 2014
Summary: Cant say if my review counts as I bought it used. Dislikes are when on speaker phone you cannot interrupt the party that is talking as they cannot hear you. To use voice dial you have to open the phone, (my Motorola Quantico had a external button on the side). When using speaker phone it has to be a good distance away otherwise people cant understand you. In my opinion it is not a good phone but as I said I got it used and maby its a junker.
Summary: Do not get this phone! Every time I pick up the phone I accidently press one of the buttons on the side of the phone's body. This is a huge annoyance. Poor designe. Everything else works fine. But, this is a critical design flaw. I am in the process of finding another phone and maybe another carrier. Where have all the flip phones gone? Some of us old just use phones to make calls.
Summary: The screne is good and clear. I like the feature of the 3 quick call buttons. Most of the time voices are garbled and unclear. The buttons on the side push to easy when taken out of pocket it will mute, it is difficult to take out with out pushing the buttons. Never had this problem with other phones. The thing that bothers me the most is the person on the other end cannot hear you and you cannot hear them all the time. This is the first phone we ever had a problem with.
Summary: I have made a lot of calls and sent a lot of texts on this phone...the calls are OK, yet the P2030 is no good at texting. I'm running software version JSUS05272013, and I don't know if there is an update or not, so there is a possibility some of the issues I will mention have been fixed. I hit the maximum number of texts quickly. It isn't that I text that often. This phone just doesn't provide a lot of storage for texts.
Summary: the predictive text doesn't work properly or at all. the voice recognition for speach dialing is terrible and gets confused, phone constantly resets back to factory settings-i have to reload my ring tone 4 times a day, definitely NOT enough memory. 4-5 hotos in it and can't take another one if there is an emergency (like a car accident). complicated menus when trying to use it. tried 5 times last night before it would turn off. internet turns itself on!
Pros: speaker , battery life , good for texting
Cons: poor navigation , limited memory , operating system , software bugs , voice recognition , predictive text
