Sliding for text, but Don't have to buy data to use.
1 week ago
Summary: I like the size screen. I like that I do not have to buy a data pkg to use this phone, and can still use the slide out for texting. It does turn on and go to places I do not want to go, because it is too easy to hit a button. It can be in my pocket and go off. I will try a thicker case. I do like the phone a lot. First good size screen in a non smart phone.
Summary: Package arrived today as promised. However, I powered on the phone and slide the keyboard open. There was dirt all over the keyboard. Then as the phone finished powering on the front screen just started calling the voicemail...then hung up and opened the pics then called voicemail again. Mind you this all happened without me touching it. I did hit the end button several times and that didnt work I rebooted the photo and that didnt help.
Summary: This phone is sold as new but is not new. In the phone shipped to me, the phone refuses to completely charge and it has been only a month. How convenient that the warranty period is 30 days. This is a complete garbage phone! Do not buy.
Summary: If you don't need a smart phone and you want a full keyboard and a touch screen, this is one of the best choices you have with Verizon. I've already had one of these for over 2 years. I ordered this new, exact same replacement because I dropped my original in the toilet. The things I didn't like about the original were: I had to keep deleting older stuff from the calendar because it wouldn't let me put anything new in it until I did (small memory in the calendar).
Summary: This is the only phone that does not require a data plan that is not a flip phone for Verizon. They are durable and last past 2 years. I keep buying them so I don't have to buy a data package. They have a lot of functions that are on data phones. Excellent quality.
