Summary: This phone only works as unlocked for at&t. If the sim card is not at&t then it will not recieve or send picture messages nor can you set ring tones. If its not in contact with an at&t tower then it wont send or recieve calls either. AT&T doesnt let their phones truely unlock for any other provider.
Summary: THIS IS NOT AN UNLOCKED PHONE. TOO MANY PHONES ON EBAY BEING LABLED AS "UNLOCKED" THAT ARE NOT. IT HAS TO BE LOADED WITH SOFTWARE/FIRMWARE FROM A CARRIER. A TRUE UNLOCKED PHONE WILL OWRK ON ANY COMPATIBLE CARRIER NETWORK AND HAS STAND ALONE MANUFACTURER SOFTWARE NO PROPRIETARY TO THE CARRIER.
Excerpt: Phone is terrible! I bought it a week ago, it has already stopped working several times; I have been back to the store twice. It overheats and I am forced to leave it off for hours and then restart it for it to work.
Cons: stops working, overheats, long charge time, short battery life, small keys, flimsy design
