Summary: I had this same phone previously and it was great.. I used it till it waspractically dead. This "new" phone has no signal, drops calls and breaks up. I have to shut it off and turn it back on to get anything and still nothing.. i can hold the old one next to the new one and the old one still gets more bars... so very dissapointed in this purchase. I even brought it to AT&T themselves and they said it was just the phone and since I bought it else where I was out of luck.
Summary: Don't waste your money. That's all I really have to say. I don't think I've ever had a phone that works this horribly. Before I say anything else, I've had this phone less than a year. Probably 4-5 months. >Turning the phone on. If you want to turn the phone back on, you better be prepared to wait. The touch takes 4-5 seconds to respond to ANYTHING when you turn it on. This includes typing, opening any applications, and literally anything else.
Summary: I got this phone a couple of years ago and I haven't really cared for it! My touch screen never really wroked that great to begin with. A couple of weeks ago it just froze up on me. I can't do anything, but recive calls with it. POS in my opinion! I don't remcommend this phone at all!
Summary: The worst cell phone I have ever had. Instead of scrolling the address list it calls that name where you touch it, or scrols the whole list to the end, non-stop. Tries to connect to a paid service. 2 of 3 times when I try to pick a call it drops it. Quality of the camera - a way below mediocre.
Pros: *It looks sleek *three images on the wall are cool *lots of different little apps *can be hacked to remove unwanted items
Cons: *Abysmal touchscreen - poor response to touch *swipe moves way to fast on list items so that it passes the one you are looking for *selects the wrong item as you swipe to find the correct one *shuts off on its own *touch screen keyboard is excellent (if y
Summary: I've had this phone before and this one does the same as the other 3 I had. Thought it would fix itself with the next phone or batch of phones but it didn't. The phone locks up in the middle of texting at least once a day and will restart itself. I've learned to deal with it but its annoying. It is no reflection on the seller at all - its the phone. Wonder why it isn't in production anymore.
Pros: None that I can think of, and I am being fair. Oh wait, it does fit in my pocket.
Cons: Let's see: 1. All touch screen interface and the friggin touch screen works like a charm, if by charm I mean disaster. Scrolling contacts takes forever, as it always thinks you've selected something, same is true for drag and drop. And typing, oh don't
Cons: Everything! Poor texting Freezing when trying to access contacts Deletes photos off of sim card by itself Turns off by itself Poor battery life Reception is terrible Always choppy calls and dropped calls
