Summary: We bought this last year to take to Europe with us, so we could use it there for convenience. We bought a sim card at a kiosk in St. Pancras Train Station, in Paris and it didn't work! Beware of the kiosks that are all over Paris, their sim cards don't necessarily work in "unlocked" phones from the US. We ended up purchasing a low cost model phone at the Orange Store in Paris, with a sim and calling time. It worked fine on their network. Key word......it worked!
Summary: I bought it for my sister visiting from Europe so that she could use it here (in the US) with her SIM card. Even though the phone is said to be unlocked, the access to networks here was always 'unauthorized', even though her phone company has an agreement with AT&T. Makes you wonder what 'unlocked' really means...
Summary: I just wanted to buy a cheap phone to cover me up for couple of weeks. I wish I wouldn't buy it. This phone lacks a very primitive capability that every single cellphone's supposed to have: Proper sound coming from its earpiece at the top. I cannot hear anything. I can't understand what the person other side of the line saying because of sizzles, parasites in the sound. Why do you buy a phone that can't even assist you to talk with someone?
Summary: I'm mostly to blame on this for not doing my homework before I bought. Purchased it along with a Telestial Passport sim card planning to use in Germany, Austria,Hungary and the Czech Republic. In every country the phone showed "no network" or words to that effect. The description on the Amazon site indicated that this dual band phone was not usable in the US but there was no guidance as to countries where it would function.
Conclusion: A mi en particular no me sirvio. De hecho no lo estoy ni usando. Una de las cosas que mas me importaba era que tuviera alarma porque lo uso mucho como despertador, bah, al que tenia. Pero este suena tan bajito... practicamente no suena. y no tiene la opcion de cambiarle la alarma que tiene. No te queda otra. La verdad que malisimo. Quisiera cambiarlo. Pero en donde lo compre me dicen que con mi linea por un año no puedo volver a comprar otro.
Pros: liviano, barato
Cons: suena bajisimo!!, la radio no tiene volumen!!(a quien se le ocurrio??)
