Summary: i put up with an LG "touch screen" phone for almost 3 years. the touch screen was a joke. it was difficult to use. I wanted to upgrade but verizon doesn't have very many dumb phones to choose from.. I have 2 daughters with pantech crux and they have been very satisfied... so i decided to try. It is a 100% improvement over the LG. the biggest problem is that i liked having a real keyboard that slid out.
Summary: I bought this phone mainly because I wanted a more modern looking phone that didn't require a data plan....Pretty much this phone is your only option. I find I really like it. The touch screen works well unlike other phones that I have owned (choc. touch)...it is hard to text on it though so if you are looking for a texting phone...this won't be for you. The battery life is ok...but...I like the phone..good reception....Would recommend...
Summary: This was a great phone for the price. I bought this phone for a friend of mines for herr birthday and she loves it. I would recommend this phone to anyone. This phone is a lower grade of touch screen but it is easy to use and anyone will learn tolove it. You have a MP3 Player on it so you'll never need to buy an I pod.
Excerpt: I love this phone! I had the Samsung Intensity and now that I have an all touch screen, I will never go back to punching keys. I got this on September 11th... as an upgrade, and I only payed $1.04!!! The only issue I have is the multiple texts, but I had that with my intensity. The touch screen takes some getting used to, but what touchscreen doesn't? It has a slim design, which is good, and you don't need a data plan. All in all, great phone!
Pros: Nice sleek design, good display, doesn't need a data package to operate.
Great basic phone with many features that does not require a data package.

Summary: The Pantech Crux is a great basic phone. It has a touch screen that you can scroll with ease. This has many features for a phone that does not require a data package. I bought a replacement because I lost my original. The only complaint I have is that you can't zoom when taking pictures. It does record video. Verizon has discontinued this phone.
Excerpt: Very very good considering 2 weeks. i had the Droid 2 before this phone, plain old droid 2, but it fell in my pool... haha only me. But i didnt want to spend alot on a second one, i was hesitant not getting a smartphone, but so far this is a very good phone. Droid 2 was way better, but this is good for a non-smartphone. Its touchscreen can be off every once in awhile, facebook works great.
Pros: Touch screen, build, SOUND QUALITY! :)
Cons: Battery life, texting pad sometimes is sensitive and can cause weird messages like :helli!
