Summary: The predictive texting (T9 input method) is default on this phone for every text. If you, like me, do not like T9, you have to change this setting every time you type a new message, which wastes countless amounts of time. This aspect of the phone needs to be rethought. It is very annoying to a lot of cell users according to what is read online...
Pros: Inexpensive, Durable, Lightweight
Cons: Did not meet expectations, t9 text input is a default that can't be changed!
Summary: Bad run of luck, my wife washed my phone, I broke the next one, Finally I had my new Gravity stolen. So all I wanted was a cheap basic phone. This phone has more than met my expectations. Plugged it into my computer, transferred a few files and I have photo ID and a great selection of ring tones. I love it and for the price I don't care if I wash it, break it or have it stolen.
Summary: ...and I like it that way. I'm not about the flash and gadgets. I want a reliable phone, with text and talking, and the bluetooth capability was a bonus. The camera is neat for making picture ID's for my list. My old silver Samsung A660 was six years old, survived many mishaps, and well, for a "disposable" phone, lived longer than most of my friends expensive smart phones.
Summary: Had this phone for a month now and disappointed with performance of battery. It does not seem to hold the charge but for about two days and this with not much use. Used only for talking with no texting, photos, Internet, or Bluetooth. Could be a bad battery. Phone very good, otherwise.
Summary: My wife and I both have this phone. Low price from T-mobile. We both like the phone except for one thing-the volume button is on the side and gets mashed almost anytime one picks up the phone or even while talking. I would give the phone four stars overall but had to give it only one star for 'design'. My four stars would be for the overall value and features for a low-priced, simple flip phone.
Pros: Built-in speakers, Bright display, Inexpensive, Lightweight, value overall
Summary: The sound on an incoming text message is very low. Unless the phone is in my pocket or sitting beside me, I cannot hear the incoming text message. This phone is supposed to be an "upgrade" from the previous model, but I am really not happy with it.
Summary: This phone has a great speaker, sound is clear. The screen is a bit small, so sms are hard to read and of course the keypad isn't easy to write sms either. All in all, this is a great phone for somebody that just wants to make and receive calls. Can't complain for a phone at that price!
