Excerpt: I got this phone brand new from Verizon, and here I am a year and a half later, and it's been reduced to rubble. I'm not that hard on phones, so I have to assume that some of this is the phone's bad build quality.
Pros: Phenomenal typing experience., Great media player (but no 3.5 jack)., No required data., Very affordable., Great reception., Beautiful and big display.
Cons: Can't turn the phone off and expect it to come back on., Inferior plastic film quality over the screen tends to chip off., Battery is dying a year and a half in., Backup manager somehow doesn't work - had to type in all my contacts by hand on my next phone.
Excerpt: A really great basic phone, never had any problems with its system. At first i hated keyboards but this phone makes you want to have more full keyboard phones. Plus I have always loved slide out phones. Recommend it.
Excerpt: This phone is simple to use. it's perfect for teenagers, you don't have to charge it very often, you can take pictures and record videos. you can also put music onto it, which is a feature i LOVE. overall, it's been a very good phone and i haven't had any problems with it.
Pros: great design, long lasting battery, love the QWERTY keyboard, love listening to music on it
Excerpt: I really like this phone! Especially how the scroll works! Instead of press, you touch like a blackberry! It's an awesome phone! I text a lot and talk on the phone but the battery never dies! If your looking for a phone for a teenager, I defiantly recommend the pantech jest!!!
Pros: Awesome reception, Good battery life, Big screen, Good call quality
Excerpt: I had that phone for about two days when I found that there were issues. First, the directional pad has a mind of its own. It may take up to five swipes to get the phone to do what you want it to. Then the paint and protective coverings started to chip off.
Excerpt: i personaly love the pantech jest one of my best friends has it and they love i8t. ill mess around with it once in a while. and it seems great! i love the scroller because its like a blackberry. and what other phone has that?????????
Excerpt: Bad battery, already had Verizon send me a new one, first one had to be charged 3 times in 6 days. I am not a high user, maybe 2 texts per day and call only a few a week. New battey is now on day 7 and has only 1 bar of charge left. FAR less than the 380 hours stated.
Excerpt: I got this phone for Christmas and it's such a good phone compared to my last 2 phones (LG EnV and LG Chocolate 2). Easy to text on and stuff like that. I don't really like the OK button but you get used to it. Good music player. It takes pretty decent pictures for a cellphone, but there's no flash.
Pros: Music player is great., Reception., Camera is decent., Very vivid screen., The keyboard., Call quality.
Cons: Scratches easily., Internet is okay., Battery life could be better.
Excerpt: I love the Pantech Jest! It has a huge screen and I also like the key pad that slides out from the bottom of phone. This makes texting a breeze! This phone also has GREAT Reception, which is hard to find these days!!
Excerpt: Phone is nice in appearance and functions seem great, however battery life does not last long, I am not a teenager, so I do not text all day or talk all day, but I feel like I am stuck to a landline that is attached to the wall because it does not hold a charge at all.
