All I want is a basic phone, talk/ text and send photos.
3 June 2014
Summary: I don't find it user friendly and I am not using it any more. I don't want all the features this phone has and with all the junk on it still would not send a text with a photo in it, it was a waste of money and I am not relisting it for sale because I don't want to upset the buyer.
Summary: I bought this phone to take on my trip to Spain. Once there I got a SIM and a plan and away we went. It had more than enough features and my email followed me around. I could reply back to text as I had a gateway in the US that managed my numbers. Photos came out good and I was having a great time until we got to Barcelona. The day before I was coming home my backpack was stolen with a diversion created by the staff and so went my phone.
Summary: I ultimately had to return this phone due to extremely poor battery life. The battery would not hold a charge for more than six hours. Even with all automatic sync/gps/wifi turned off, the phone would be at 0% battery life each morning. When I checked to see what was draining the battery, the device reported that it was the display, even though the display was not turned on as the phone was not in use.
Summary: I purchased this phone elsewhere to be certain it was brand new and not a refurb. It has been problematic so far and will probably be returned, especially now that I realize how much the negative reviews of this phone mirror my own experience after one week of use. I really wanted a phone with a sliding keyboard. My last smartphone had a very solid keyboard with proper buttons. This is more like a thin layer of plastic.
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.
