Summary: I only pay $25 a month for unlimited messaging, web and 300 minutes which is not bad at all but the phone is horrible. Freezes up on me all the time and then shuts off. I don't know if it is the service or the phone but I cannot get picture messages at all and most of the time it won't let me send picture messages. Battery power is lame, barely lasts me a day. Will NOT send pictures to my email. Honestly, save your money.
Pros: Well, it's a smartphone. It's at least better than a flip phone. Pull-out keyboard is great for texting
Cons: Super slow-- up to 5 minutes to start up, takes very long time to load apps Never does what is supposed to Horrible battery life No space, most apps can't go on SD card Overheats Tiny Screen Crashes all the time Can't find WiFi
Summary: I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT FOR ANYONE!!! NOT EVEN CHILDREN AND THE PEOPLE BEHIND THIS PRODUCT ONLY CARE FOR THE MONEY...THEY DON'T CARE IF YOU KNOW HOW TO OR DON'T KNOW HOW TO WORK A PHONE...
Summary: The operating system is absolutely horrid. Even if you just want a cheap run of the mill smart phone, fork out an extra 30 dollars and get something halfway decent with android 4.0. I want to break this phone. It restarts all the time on its own, I have a lot of dropped calls, and it boots up SLOWWWWWWWWWWW! I hate it.
Summary: This phone is so underpowered even the simplest tasks, like texting, severely lag. My old blackberries were much faster than my intercept. Also, it force closes everything frequently: Facebook, messaging, and even the phone while using a Bluetooth headset all shut down without any explanation. This phone is plagued with problems; I wouldn't even recommend the intercept if it were offered for free.
Summary: This phone was a nightmare from the first one I had till the 5th. replacement. It has a slow and cheaply built processor. The battery and just a couple background apps will cause the phone to overheat. The built in scroll sensor has issues to say the least. All in All you will be lucky to have the phone for more then 3 months (even with conservative use) before the phone will "lemon"..
Summary: This phone is slow and frequently crashes. Even after moving most apps (that actually do work) onto the SD card, it still runs out of storage space often. I wish I had read reviews on virginmobile's webiste or amazon before purchasing this phone. +Positives+ +Cheap +Keyboard +Sturdy: I have dropped numerous times without a case and never any damage.
