Summary: This phone was bought as a replacement by and for my son who broke his Pantech slider. I initially replaced his phone with a basic $10 Samsung flip and he hated it. He loves that this phone has a camera, can receive his Facebook alerts and is a cool color among the kids in his school. It was in very good condition and his only complaint was that the arrow down track button is very hard to push.
Summary: I brought this phone as a downgrade to a slider. It slid upwards and the qwerty keypad slid from underneath. When I got this phone it is a good size for my hands.I can text with ease and speed.One thing that I don't like is that I can't quite the shutter sound on the camera. Overall I think that is will be a phone that I'll use and be satisfied with. The color orange is very pleasing to the eye, it almost calms you when you look at it.
Excerpt: ...but it sure is good to me. I've had it for almost two years and I have put it through hell! I'm talking serious water damage (left it in a flowerbed, forgot about it, and then blindly watered the entire thing), serial falls and drops, and I even ran it over one time after it fell off of my car and onto the highway (a bright orange phone is a great thing when you are looking for the pieces of it on the side of a busy highway, haha) and it still works great!
Summary: the phone looks like a blackberry smartphone because of the keys. but its not a blackberry. the color is so vibrant and i always get compliments. it uses the standard Samsung sized input sockets. the camera works well and it has good basic graphics and ringtones.
