"HATE phone! Comes w/unwanted apps I cannot uninstall."
6 July 2013
Pros: It still works after 2 years, and has had no significant tech problems.
Cons: This phone comes programmed w/very many apps that cannot be uninstalled or moved to a SD card. Therefore, there is hardly any memory to install apps that I want and forget about the updates. This phone has only caused extreme frustration.
Horrible product. wish I could discontinue the use of this phone.

Summary: i bought this phone because mines broke and i did not have enough to but the phone again so i thought this would be a nice temporary phone. I was wrong.i hate this phone. it calls people when it wants to. it shuts off all the time. it cant hold no more then 3 apps with out blocking all your emails and internet service. what a inconvenience. i will never recommend this phone. good thing its only temporary.
Summary: This is my first smartphone, so I can't really compare it to other smartphones, but it's worlds better than any phone,and This phone on ebay is about good price of the boost retail price so thats the high point for me, i was able to a new phone for a good price and its nice phone to used,and Boost's Android plan gives u everything unlimited for $50 per month,and its excellent phone at an excellent price .....

Summary: This phone on ebay is about half the price of the boost retail price so thats the high point for me, i was able to get a like new phone to replace my dead bb cheaply n quickly. Boost's Android plan gives u everything unlimited for $50 per month and wifi makes youtube work pretty flawlessly. The handset is small but I don't have a problem with that. However, there is a reason for the low price point.
Good economy smartphone, cheap but keeping up with the best of them.

Summary: The on screen QWERTY key pad is made for people with very small fingers. Nice because it isn't a giant phone in your pocket though. Battery is just the new standard with smartphones. It doesn't last as long as the boring phones. This phone is very nice over all and has all the nice things about Android. Although, and maybe it's me or this phone individually is messed up, I am having difficulties with getting it to recognize it is connected to a computer.
Summary: Very good phone for teenager. Easy to use.Very good price.My daughter was excited to hace the phone and was easy to operate. Very good for someone who is in school. With the Wi-Fi compatable feature it was even better to be able to use the internet whenever you wanted to. The phone also features the touch screen keyboard that was also a keeper item.
If you paid less than $40, you got a good entry-level smartphone.

Summary: Worst problem: Comes almost totally filled with unwanted applications. Screen is small: It's hard to type on the screen with the phone vertical. Basically, I eBay'ed it because it's not worth it's sticker price. If you can get it for < $40, it will be worthwhile. If you can't, leave it on the shelf and look at something else. It's not the best smartphone in the world, but it IS a smartphone.
