Summary: For the most part, I really like the phone. It gets good reception, is basically user friendly, and emits little SAR. Texting is a bit too complicated, though, for instance, switching between word prediction and ABC mode. Not necessarily sold on the dual mode design, either. Basic mode works great for my purposes other than accessing draft texts, which I must go to Adanced mode to find.

Summary: I'm generally happy with this phone but I wish it had a couple other features. 1) I wish it had more speed dials, at least a hundred. 2) I wish it could be setup to answer a phone call just by opening the phone, Instead you have to both open it and push a button.
Summary: This is a hard review to write. I actually returned the item and the vendor was VERY helpful. It was purchased for my mother who was in a steep health decline and never needed this replacement phone for the identical model she had before. For an elderly person with limited vision, and familiarity with the same device, this was an easy choice.
Summary: Bought this for my wife. She likes simple flip phones and this one did the trick. Two things I didn't particularly like. One,is that you have to have a micro SD card before the usb will connect and you can put data into the phone (music, ringtones, etc). The second thing is I couln't figure out a way to turn off the 3G. She doesn't use the internet and it just keeps running the battery down looking for the network. Overall though, a nice little phone.
Simple, straightforward flip phone that does the job

Summary: The AT&T Pantech Breeze III is a simple, straightforward flip phone. If you don't need the features of a smart phone the Pantech has good reception, a large memory for phone numbers and good battery life. It has big, easy to read numbers and is quite inexpensive, which is why I bought one each for my son and my mother-in-law. I bought two used phones on eBay for parts (battery covers and charge cords), which had been lost.
