Summary: I refuse to get a smart phone because of the price and the inability to lightly touch the screen for texting. I love this phone and will continue to use it. However, my phone shuts off and I thought my phone was defective until I read a customer review that say it did the same thing.
Summary: This phone is ok. Needed a texting phone for work and did not want the $$ for smart phone. Nice size and weight. Good reception. Good battery life. Little concern that with heavy use the qwerty board won't hold out. After a month, it is feeling a little loose.
Summary: The phone is great all except it shuts down when there is little to no signal. I assume it is some sort of energy saving feature but I have no idea how to disable it, if possible. This issue of it shutting down and you not knowing hte phone is off is the reason for the 4 stars instead of 5.
Summary: though he wasn't looking to replace his flip phone, i bought this for my dad as a christmas present because it has the qwerty keyboard. the buttons are a little bit too small for his man hands, but he gets by with that and likes it a lot. really good phone for those who don't want a smart phone.
