  • 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...it still didn't work. I think it had been sitting around too long.

Good phone for a great price!

  • Summary: I really like this phone-and for the price it's even better. If you want a phone just for texting and some light web browsing, then this phone is excellent. The only problem is the battery life. For some reason, I have to charge my phone twice a day-but that could be my battery-I'll check into that-lol. Overall, this is a great starter phone or a phone used for just above the basics.

A temporary fit

  • Summary: Light weight, good phone for the price. Camera doesn't zoom in. It is able to lock when not in use. Lots of people confuse it for a blackberry so I like to call it a "blackbery knock off". Not a touch screen but better than a flip phone.

phone is good. beware the proprietary accessory jack.

  • Summary: My wife seems happy with the phone so far. Her use is pretty basic for voice and texting only, and it seems to do that fine. Big "gotchas" to watch for involve what seems to be a proprietary adaptor for headphone / charger connection. This means your normal headsets won't connect to it, and you need to buy new adaptors, and the options for accessories are pretty poor in some cases.

Great while its lasted...

  • Excerpt: Well, the phone was outstanding for 5 months. I talk many hours everyday, and the battery would last for 3 days. Not any more though. The six and currently seventh month I have had it, the cellular divice turns off when it feels, so has to be plugged in every night to avoid missing work. Its call quality is now lacking, and the reseption is becoming poor.
  • Pros: Thin design, Easy use volume rocker, Camera button, Durable screen, Brightness, loud speakers
  • Cons: battery, signial receivers, keyboard, fantom vibrations, Ringtones

The Pantech Link is a good basic phone. Not for cam lovers.

  • Summary: I have used this cell phone for the last two years and I am quite pleased with it. The phone has access to the internet and has an interesting conversation format (similar to iphone) for messaging between people. I do not like the fact that the phone does not hold many text messages. I think the limit is 30-50 text messages. I also do not like the camera because it has low pixels and nearly all my pictures come out blurry.

Good phone, with a couple of issues

Parker Sims, Amazon
25 May 2010
  • Summary: Overall, the Link is a reliable and handy little phone with a high quality screen and many features. It is rather slim, and fits conveniently in any small purse or pocket. However, it does have a couple of drawbacks. The first (which I have come to get used to) is the relatively cramped qwerty keyboard. At just over 2 inches wide, there is little room for a full keyboard, however, the Link combats this using tapered and raised keys making the problem less obvious.
