Have bought 2 -- one works fine, other had to return
28 May 2014
Summary: Bought the first one for my son about a year ago. Works fine, especially for the price which was about $57 and free shipping. Bought another for my daughter last month, but this one had a defective touch screen that would not power on. Amazon's no-hassle return policy is truly terrific and between them and/or the vendor, a UPS driver was soon at my door with a completed return label, all postage paid. Soon after, the purchase amount was fully refunded to my credit card.
Summary: Pretty great for a cheap buy, would recommend to anyone looking for a phone and to save money. Larger than i expected but still very useful. It's a bit laggy as well but what do you expect from that price?
Summary: I had several PANTECH phones in the past, so I was not hesitant in ordering another. The Pocket even gave the ATT Customer Service guy a problem in reading the SIM card at the store. After 2 cards and several re-boots, it finally read the card. The next day, again...Today-same problem...Amazon is refunding and I have reordered another pocket in hopes that it was just a lemon.
Summary: The Pantech Pocket has an enjoyable and unique form factor. I wish it had more memory. Only 320mb on board with a microSD slot for 32md additional. Unfortunately, many of the apps can't be moved to the card and I can't update my apps for lack of memory. Also, if you let the battery get below 15% and plug it in, it shuts down. I have to remove the battery to reset it or it won't charge properly.
Summary: The phone is an android so it's good enough for the price I paid but it's glitches as hell And I'm sad I can't take screen shots with it. The camera doesn't have a flash and there is not front camera. I love the design though. The flat short square big screen. It looks cool and peoplesay its uncomfortable but it's not to me. All in all I guess I'm just used to HTC so this phone is no where near as good as one of those. But it's good for the buck.
