Summary: I brought this to be my first venture into the land of smartphones and texting. I thought I could not give a manual keyboard which is the primary reason why I brought it. Once I learned how to text with a stylus, the Qwerty keyboard became unnecessary. I sent this one back because it was defective.
Summary: This is a nice phone and will work sufficiently for my 73 year old mother who is actually enjoying it. However, if you have 4g service with your cell phone provider then this may not be the phone for you.
