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 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.
Excerpt: At first I wasn't a fan of the phone because it was hard to type on the top row of the QWERTY keyboard, but if you keep your nails short, than you can type on it easier. It took some getting use to, but I like it now. I'm having trouble saving things to the flash drive, the pictures don't want to come off my phone for some reason. I like that it lets you go over the character limit on text messages instead of having to send a bunch of seperate messages.
Excerpt: This phone is great for someone who wants the extra features, but doesn't want to pay for a pda phone. I saved myself, between my phone and my boyfriends, almost 100 dollars a month with this investment. It's just like the Pantech Duo, but without the bells and whistles of a pda. I Can still get my email on it, still browse the internet unlimited, and still text message unlimited, but for half the price. It also has the full keyboard..
Excerpt: This cell phone was my SAVIOR! I use it every day, even after two years, and I can't get enough of it's savvy style and great endurance, een after having it chucked into the pool by my best friends toddler. It's fantastic when you need something smart and easy. Pantech Matrix is for me. Reviewer received a sample of this product.
Excerpt: I purchased my Pantech Matrix in Feb. 2009. I have had other phones such as a blackjack, blackberry, motorola, nokia, etc; and none compare for me to this phone. You have the slider for phone calls and predictive texting, easily sliding open to answer and sliding closed to end the calls. You have the other slide that opens to a full qwerty keyboard which is wonderful for all the txtng. I get great reception and cell phone coverage with exception to a few local areas.
Excerpt: I really wanted a slider phone with a built in keyboard. Sometimes its easier to text then make a phone call. Especially when your on the run. For my first phone with a qwerty keyboard I must say I really like it. I have had minimal problems with it, and the ones Ive had are easily fixed. Its easy to use and easy to learn all the functions. For someone thats never texted before or just learning. Its a piece of cake to figure out.
