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.
Excerpt: This AT&T Go-Phone is a decent first Phone but the frame is pencil thin and over time starts to break down. it has no true lock system which i was very unhappy with. the battery only lasts for about three or four hours. Although at first this phone is a good phone but it stops working properly quickly.
Summary: The unit looks slim, and fine. Actual use with it texting as dificult and two days after purchase the letter "m" fell off the keypad and was never found. Very frustrated because I specifically bought this phone to text. Disappointed at the "cheap" construction and lettering.
Be careful with your screens and protect them so they want get so scratched
5 December 2012
Summary: I liked this phone ok. Its of good quality. The front screen is so scratched up that you can't read words or numbers on it. Of no fault to the phone. With a screen protector on it, it would have lasted a long time.
Summary: The keys are too small and rounded. Too small to use fingers to type and the fingernails keep sliding off the keys you want and hitting the wrong keys. The speaker volume is not loud enough. The battery dies all the time. I am charging my battery an average of twice a day. I am not using the internet with it.. only a few calls and texts. I am looking forward to October when my upgrade can be done so that I can get a decent phone that fits MY needs.
Excerpt: This phone loads all your menus with things you have to pay for, making you scroll through all the junk to get to what you want, it comes with a very limited number of low-quality ringtones and backgrounds, and dosent let you set ringtones off your recordings. this phone is desinged to make you buy their overpriced music and ringtones, and all other features that you would expect in a phone suffer.
Pros: qwerty keyboard, not a slider, big screen
Cons: low text memory, cant lock texts, very limited options/personalizations, tries to hard to make you purchase apps and ringtones, trouble with saving pictures, lacks options that come standard in most phones
