Summary: We purchased this as an emergency phone for our upstairs bedrooms - if we are broken into and our phones are downstairs its always good to have a backup. We also used this while we were in Mexico with a mexican sim card. Worked just fine - call quality is ok. Battery life is great on standby.
Summary: Just got it today and it's a nice little phone at the right price. It's kinda small so I'm giving it to my dad but I think it deserves 5 stars for the price I paid. Everything is functional and the build quality does not feel flimsy to me.
Summary: I was looking for a no-frills phone to use on a daily bases and I have that in the product. It's simply and works everywhere I go. And unlike my previous phone even when the signal bar is low I can make calls.
Summary: We have a family share plan which rarely go over the limit meaning we don't use our cell phones that much. So instead of taking a leap for the smart phone, we decided to just stick with "dumb" phones for maybe another year.
