Good phone but I haven't been successful when trying predictive textin
2 June 2013
Summary: The phone works well, seems to be well built and a good value for the money. One problem that I have with it is that it doesn't seem to have predictive texting. A note came up saying that it wasn't available on a querty keyboard, and when I slide it the other way, texting is totally random, changes letters around that I already typed in and definitely doesn't predict the word or phrase that I'm trying to type.
Summary: The phone is great. I had one a few years ago and liked it but I dropped it one to many times. I needed a new one so I went back to the Pantech. The only problem I had was with the new battery. It was wrapped and looked good but wouldn't hold up for 12 hrs even if not in use. I took one out of my old phone and the problem was solved.
Summary: This phone may have been good for its time, however the features are out dated. I do not like the texting feature, as you cannot view conversations, only individual messages. The phone is a bit bulky compared to more recent phones. The phone does not connect to the Bluetooth in my car very easily. I have to manually connect it each time I get in my car. Other phones I have had connect automatically. I bought this used and the keys were a little worn.
Summary: this is a brilliant phone however finding charger was hard in retail stores, best bet is get off ebay or go to Resell stores. The phone is decent pocket size and nice lcd and colors . iGreat Slide & Qwerty Keyboard. Very easy to use, and is unlockable if gsm.
Excerpt: The pantech matrix phone is a great phone to use if you are a texter. It has a slide out full qwerty keyboard and it also has a seperate slid out number pad to make it easy to make phone calls. One of my favorite things about this phone is that they keys are protected because they slide in and out of the phone and can't get accidentally hit in your purse or pocket. It has all your basic phone functions and a camera. I definitely recommend this phone to a big texter.
