Summary: This phone doesn't charge well. I'll have it plugged in all day and night and it will only have a battery that's less than 50% charged. And then it dies really quickly. I'm not sure this purchase was worth it because I need a phone I can have with me, not a phone that I have to leave charging inside.
Summary: I am actually between a two star and a three star rating. The price was do-able, the shipping was prompt, and the phone arrived as promised. The phone boasts a lot of features I don't actually need, and may never use. But I am convinced that much of the boasting is misguided. I have not had time to completely evaluate the performance, but it exhibits flaws that I consider significant.
Summary: The battery with the phone was dead. Seller sent another--defective as well. Have purchased a brand new one and will see if the phone drains it in a matter of an hour also. 2nd Entry--New battery seems to be holding charge.
Excerpt: Did not have a lot of life in the hardware. It died a few days ago and is now a fancy paperweight. At one time after having it for about six months the stored text messages vanished with no trace. Often ran slower than pitch in winter. Would not recommend as there are still Verizon stores that carry this.
Pros: fit easily in my pocket
Cons: died just after warranty was up, the speaker was awkward, laggy ui, default keyboard was a screen hog, at one point my text messages vanished from my phone
It is not that the phone isn't good it is the order

Summary: I ordered 2 of these phones to set up on Page Plus Cellular from Breed. No where on the listing does it state that this is a pre-paid cell phone. A pre-paid cell phone can only be used on a Verizon account. If I had known it was a pre-paid cell phone I would not have ordered them!
