  • Summary: I got this phone in January 2013 because my parents don't want to pay for a smartphone and it was either this or the Pantech Swift. I thought it was the most amazing phone on the planet...well I was wrong. It started off accidentally dropping it in the toilet not even a week after I got it. It stilled worked the same so I continued using it until my dad got a phone from work and he gave me his phone, the same phone.
  • Pros: no data bill
  • Cons: randomly shuts off , freezes , camera quality , mesages get full fast , battery life , takes forever to send message , fails to send texts with full bars , nothing but call/text

Is lacking personalization feature.

  • Summary: I really do not like this phone. You can not personalize all of the background screens with your own pictuers. The stock choices are very outdated. I would like to see a feature of using your own photos for customisation. The menu is also very tedious with multiple steps just to get to your calendar or note pad for example. The touch screen seems to have a mind of it's own.
  • Cons: very little personalization

Terrible Phone

texter132, Wireless AT&T
21 June 2013
  • Summary: This phone is unbelievable. I am very familiar with the Pantech brand and it is very horrid. The texting is the only Pro. Battery life is terrible, screen is retched, call quality is scratchy, it always reboots itself, the camera is SO BAD and more. I am now moving to a smart phone. This phone is terrible it would be great punishment.
  • Pros: texting
  • Cons: camera , battery life , display , call quality , overall device , touch screen , options

nothing but problems - went through two of this phone in 5 months

  • Summary: Bought this phone and within a week the touch screen stopped working. ATT could not fix - b/c you need to be able to use the touch screen to fix it, so they replaced with the same phone, this one only lasted 4 months. Screen shattered after falling from less than one foot off the ground. Still usable for a little longer before the LCD completely quit.
  • Cons: easily broken , fragile screen
