Summary: Just got this a cheap backup for Blackberry. No trouble getting this up on t-mobile USA. You'll need to create a new "profile" under networks for your apn. For messaging you need to add new profile as well. "under messaging" Mobile Web and most apps wont function without AT&T network.
Summary: User friendly, technologically sound. I am someone who does not want a Smart Phone. I like the Link because it's compact, the keyboard is easy to use, camera is decent, has speaker phone feature, blue tooth adaptable; I'm totally satisfied.
Summary: This phone deserves 5 stars because it offers a physical QWERTY keyboard, and it is user-friendly. It has lots of nice features, but the learning curve is not steep. I have already customized my Pantech 7040 and I've only had it a week or so.

Summary: The phone itself would have been fine - but we had issues with the battery or charger not sure - either way, withing a day it wouldn't charge at all - sent it back, no problem with the refund. I even got a new battery - which probably technically wasn't new as in recently made..
Summary: This is my second Pantech Link P7040. My first one is still working after 3 years, but I found this at such a good price on Amazon I bought another one as a backup. I briefly tried one of those "smart" phones and I hated it.
Summary: I bought this phone for my teenage daughter and it works well (it's a phone that can work on AT&T's pay-upfront plans OR regular contract plans which is something even AT&T had to double check). However, she has some complaints with the email features but overall likes the phone.
Summary: Bought this for a school age child as a safety measure. The problem with this phone is that the charger will only work from certain angles. I sent the first one back because of this but didn't bother the second time. The seller was fine; it's just the phone is not a good product.
Summary: For those users who are just not ready to move to a smart phone. Pluses of this Pantech Link p7040: super easy texting, availability of limited access to internet, much lower data monthly charges than associated with a smart phone. Minuses: camera adequate not great.
