Does not close!!!

  • Summary: do not waste your money on this phone.
  • Pros: the keyboard is user friendly, I liked the sleek design and simplicity of the over all phone.
  • Cons: The back door cover does not close and actually was missing a prong on it, I called Newegg and requested another one and the same problem happened with this second phone!! I am very disappointed in this phone and it shouldn't be sold as a functioning phone.

Pretty, but didn't last long

M. Richards, Amazon
25 January 2012
  • Summary: I bought this phone in October because I did not want to extend my AT&T contract with an upgrade. It is stylish looking and worked very well until three months later when it just quit. No warranty so I'm out of luck. Would not purchase this phone again.

Awesome phone for the money but seemingly flawed

Kelly B., Newegg
14 September 2011
  • Summary: I bought this for my daughter and was thrilled at the price and value of this phone. When it arrived we assembled the phone by inserting our SIM card, unwrapping and inserting the included battery and trying to close the cover. The cover on this phone will not close with the battery in place.
  • Pros: Feature set, price, multi band capability
  • Cons: Battery cover won't close properly

Big Mistake

Napman1976, Phone Arena
24 February 2011
  • Excerpt: This phone was great the first week, but can not handle heavy volumes of text and emails. I've replaced the "Jack" three times with my insurance and I only have one month left on my contract before I can replace it. I highly recommend "not" getting this phone.
  • Pros: Big Screen, Sleek Color, Easy typing/texting
  • Cons: Clunky and heavy, No accessories available, Phone locks up too much, Phone feezes up alot, Have to reset the phone to factory settings every two weeks, Slow internet speed, Lack of knowledge from AT&T techs when needed, No headphone jack, Lack of Caller ID pics and Ringtone ID, Windows Menu takes...

Simple phone for 2010

Eric M., Newegg
24 October 2010
  • Summary: If you want JUST a phone that can run some office-type apps that come with the phone it's not bad.
  • Pros: Fairly rugged. Good volume on ring and conversations. User-friendly Windows-based OS. Good phone for someone looking for just a phone. Camera is ok.
  • Cons: Proprietary charger and accessories. Decent for a backup phone. No touch screen, not much of a smart phone compared to the phones available today. No apps. Windows OS locks up sometimes and a hard reset is necessary to use again.

14 September 2009
  • Excerpt: This phone was alright, being my first phone. But after about two months, it started taking a bit of time to load anything i wanted to open, forever to delete my messages, and the top back plate broke off, exposing the insides!

If you can keep it charged..nice phone

alcea, Phone Scoop
25 August 2009
  • Excerpt: Have owned this phone for 14 months and have had it replaced by the manufacturer 2 times because the battery will not hold a charge. It's a nice phone when it works, but I've spent more time with it charging, having it checked at the phone store, and waiting around for the phones to get mailed back...

Jack Squat

seafishman, Phone Arena
17 June 2009
  • Excerpt: Looking for a new corporate phone to replace our aging fleet of phones, including my old school HTC 8525, I picked up the new Jack. The key pad appeared easier to use than the old Black Jack 2's that we have running around the office, but this proved not to be the case.
  • Pros: Call quality was nice. Ozzy likes it, so my kids thinks it's cool. Looks like a Blackberry, but you don't have to be a Crackberry to have one.
  • Cons: Windows Mobile Pro, where are you? Browser is just as bad as the other Black Jacks. Key board is a type-o waiting to happen.
