Summary: While the phone is easy to use the buttons didn't work all the time so I had to trade it in. The second phone I received wouldn't keep a charge so I had to purchase a new battery which was extremely hard to find since this is an older phone.
Summary: Yea bought this to replace my Bionic and hell for $20 a used phone it still works but have a problem on mine where I cannot see the sent messages and if I even press on that option the entire phone freezes up and you have to remove the battery to make it work again but other than that this phone does what its supposed to..make calls and send a message here and there. Thanks to this bad boy my phone bill is less that $15 a month!
Summary: This phone has a full sized keypad with domed buttons. The characters on both screens are much larger than usual, which makes it alot easier to see who is calling while you are driving. Voice clarity and call volume are excellent. There is no camera or bluetooth. To answer the phone, you simply open it, but closing the phone will not end the call. You have to press "end" to end the call, or it releases when the other person hangs up.
For $25 bucks not bad but still not great. Hard to figure out

Summary: Does not have a lot of features and you would expect it to be easy to figure out. It is hard to figure out how to set it up and required the verizon store to get it setup. But once it is set up it seems easy to use for basic calling needs. Battery life is good to fair. It is reliable but the front lid LCD display cracked easy even with a hard plastic protector. Good thing is to replace it with a mint condition phone was only $25 on ebay.
Good basic phone, weak vibrate mode, lame calender/alarm functions.

Summary: I needed a phone with no camera, which severely limited my options. I carry a phone in my pants pocket, and this phone is not well suited for that. I'm a little deaf, and the phone is clear enough and has okay volume levels for me, but the vibrate functions is weak. I usually hear the phone buzzing before I feel it vibrate. I often don't feel it vibrate so I miss a lot of calls. I use the calendar function to keep me up on my appointments and for reminders.
Summary: My elderly mom has used this phone for the past six or eight months or so. Before that she had the Samsung Knack which is virtually the identical phone. Both phones work well and are fairly well suited for the person who wants a no-frills, basic, easy-to-use phone. For the most part, the display is easy to see. The ability to adjust font size is very helpful, however, the largest size isn't quiet large enough for an elderly woman with limited sight.
Pros: Inexpensive, what the heck does "realistic color" mean?
Cons: poor side-mount button placement, battery life
