Summary: The phone worked great after I inserted my sim card. However, I could not send/receive picture messages or get online without wifi- this is because I needed to update my APN on the phone to work with my network, pretty standard. Just a tip for future buyers. The phone is everything I expected and I like it a lot, except I wish it had a flash.
Phone performs exactly as advertised and as I expected; is an excellent buy

Summary: I purchased this product a couple of months ago for use with Straight talk. It has, so far, proven to be an excellent buy.It has performed as advertised. It was easy to set up functions perfectly. It is an excellent bargain for the price. A very good smartphone for my needs.
Great bang for your buck but not for children under 13.

Summary: I bought this phone for my teenage daughter as a Christmas gift. It is only her second phone and her first with a touchscreen. As a father on a budget, I have opted to use gophones for both of my daughters and really couldn't afford to buy either of them the phone they really wanted. I figured this looked like a decent compromise. The phone has been easy for her to use and she says that she loves it. Her only real complaint is the battery life.
Great phone, Great price, But the battery life is terrible.

Summary: I bought this phone because I wanted something up to date and affordable. I love that I can use this phone with ease, There are many apps to choose from, I can access the internet almost anywhere. It helps me stay on top of things whether it is checking my email on the go or keeping up with a social site. I have had two of these phones. Here is the biggest issue I have had with this phone.. The battery life is very short.
Summary: The speaker on this phone is GREAT. The volume on the ring is not as load as the speaker while on a call. The keyboard does have a tendency to stick, but it is a lot better than trying to use the keyboards on screen. It is loaded with a lot of junk that cannot be removed. It will eat up minutes if you try to keep it up to date (which probably the reason they have all the junk on it). I just turn it off when not using it, which seems to help.
Pros: Built-in speakers, Bright display, Inexpensive, Durable, Realistic color, has a great speaker phone!
