Summary: I wanted the next best thing to a smart phone as I am gradually updating to the "real thing". I read the reviews for the Brightside and overall they were pretty positive so I made my purchase. I find the touch screen to be SUPER sensitive and I didn't like the fact that it displayed no graphics of any sort (just the old fashioned kind :) , which half of them I'm not sure what they are suppose to be).
Phone Memory Storage Options Too Limited for Frequent Texters
26 June 2014
Summary: SMS Messages are only storable on the phone's internal memory when using the OEM phone software. For those who send frequent text massages it will limit the usefulness of the device unless the messages are regularly backed up onto a different device. The phone itself had a somewhat clunky user interface, but the mail and web browser were decent and the phone functionality was reliable.
Summary: I've had mine for a year now and recently the lock button has stopped working. Then, randomly,it will start turning on and off as if you were pushing the lock button over and over again. Second, sometimes it refuses to receive text messages until the person texts you again and then you get both at the same time.
