THIS IS AN AlLTEL PHONE, NO LONGER SUPPORTED BY VERIZON
5 June 2013
Summary: I ultimately returned this phone to the seller. I could not get Verizon to activate the phone. It was advertised as a Verizon phone. But, it was an Alltel phone, which was purchased by Verizon and then sold. Verizon no longer supports any Alltel devices. I gave it 2 stars simply because I can't say anything about how the phone operates. Beware!
Summary: Phone is okay, need two hands to use it because it is on small side. Keypad is small as well. First time I went to use charger and plug it in, it fell apart. Charger is JUNK. I have tried contacting the seller about the charger, but have not heard anything. Lucky I had purchased a second charger as a back up, that came very next day. That charger was from another vendor. If you do plan on buying this phone, buy another charger.
Summary: This phone was advertised as a prepay, it is not. the prepay network refused to connect to this phone. But the phone worked and if I didnt have a prepay account, this phone would have been perfect.
Summary: I had this phone for 2 months at which point I could only hear callers if I used speakerphone, although they could hear me. Apparently this is a common problem with no solution and all Verizon could offer was a used phone to replace the brand new one I had bought from them 2 months earlier. The keyboard is difficult to use; you have to slide it out and type on its tiny little keys. The phone itself is a little large.
Excerpt: This phone really is not such a terrible phone. If your looking for a phone to just call on or text all day, this is the right phone for you. The keypad is great, very useful. That's pretty much all i use to text with anyway. The thing i don't like about this phone is that it's very boring. There are no games, the camera quality isn't as awesome. To get a really nice photo, you have to be in lighting. This phone has an mp3, which is good.
Waiting to upgrade...the Samsung Intensity SCH-U450 cell phone
9 September 2012
Excerpt: The main reason we were drawn to the Intensity when we were shopping for new phones was the slide out full keypad on the phone. I thought this would be great for my partner and he thought it was a good idea too. Another reason we picked this phone is because my partner did not want a flip phone and the Intensity if your typical "brick" phone. It measures about 4 inches in height, 2 inches in width and a little over a ½ an inch in thickness.
The Samsung r450 is the perfect sized phone with good features.

Excerpt: The Samsung r450 is a great size and easily fits in your pocket. It is also not too thin so you won't snap it by putting it in your pocket and sitting down. You can also easily put a memory card into your phone and it can hold all your pictures and music for you. The screen is also a good size and easy to see what you are doing. It has bluetooth and many other features. Some features include a stopwatch, tip calculator, sound recorder, a converter, etc.
