"DON"T WASTE YOUR MONEY!"

kcarden60, CNET
14 November 2011
  • Pros: It's a cute phone. Nice large screen. Fun and easy keyboard.
  • Cons: It does not work if it's not plugged in. This seems to be a common problem that happens with every jest phone. The optical pad is kind of annoying and can be frustrating.

Do not use this phone

  • 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. A button fell off of the keyboard and I had to use glue to replace it so I could text again. I lost texts all the time in a city of all places. I had to stand next to a wall to get a text or send one.

"Love the phone, but unacceptable battery faults"

  • Pros: Great QWERTY keyboard, easily visible screen, great silhouette, convenient keys.
  • Cons: Annoying track-pad at first, though easy to get used to. Battery had to be replaced several times, still isn't working consistantly; over a month or so after I got it, the battery life shortened until it needed to be plugged in to work, and even then so

Pantech Jest- No Battery Life - Always on charge

30 December 2010
  • 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.
  • Pros: Great Design
  • Cons: short battery life

"Fair phone for messaging, there are better ones out"

dahman22, CNET
29 July 2010
  • Pros: Features are great, camera, QWERTY, menu and customization
  • Cons: IMPOSSIBLE to navigate with the five directional key, worst invention ever, it is supposed to be sensitive to pull and push of the finger. FAIL You'll spend hours scrolling through a menu

  • Pros: sound quality, keyboard, lots of neat features
  • Cons: battery goes dead quickly, hard to use scroll feature.
