company should of checked to see if stolen or reported lost phone
9 August 2011
Summary: The Phone does not stay on, battery life sucks, and the company sent me a reported lost or stolen phone. US Celluar is letting me use it but had to drop the insurance on it. So other words, I bought a piece of non placeable junk. I will use it until it dies than hammer it to pieces so no body will dig it out of the trash can after I throw it away.
Excerpt: The Droid platform works fine most of the time. The touchscreen isn't always reliable and the phone itself is terrible. This phone will drop calls for no reason and the keypad activates while speaking on the phone. I have just received my 3rd replacement to try. I have spent hours and hours on the phone with the tech department and it's just a vicious circle. I would not recommend this phone at all.
Summary: When you look for a used Acclaim or any smart phone make sure it has the little memory card and directions/manual. You can't take a picture without the card. The card cost me $28 and I went through 130 sheets of paper downloading the manual. My last several phones had better reception than my Acclaim. On the plus side the pictures it takes are great. For me the access to email and internet is sure nice.
Excerpt: Not a great phone. I'm currently waiting on the arrival of my 3rd replacement. The first one, brand new out of the box, froze up within a week. The second, also brand new out of the box, froze up completely within 5 weeks. By froze up, i mean will not turn on at all. Locks up on the Samsung logo screen. My third one is a refurbished phone, courtesy of U.S. Cellular. Hopefully this one works. If not, I'm definitely either getting another brand or switching carriers.
Excerpt: Okay, so I was expecting a lot from this phone. This was the first android available from my cellphone company, so me and my mom rushed to buy it and got a sweet 2 for 1 deal. For the first weeks, there were absolutely no problems except that the extremely SLOW, minute long turn on, was a bit irritating for a while and then there was the 8 hour wait for it to be fully charged and the fact that the battery life was VERY short.
