Love this phone!

  • Excerpt: I've had this phone for 2 years now, AND I LOVE IT! All these problems other users have written I haven't experienced at all...... but you have to remember more people are going to take the time to go on here and write a bad review, than those who love the phone. I am dreading to get a new phone, this phone is simple and does everything I need.
  • Pros: everything
  • Cons: nothing at all!

Pretty :) Sh!tty :(

Marissa, Phone Arena

  • Excerpt: I was in a hurry when I bought this phone, so I didn't take the time to read reviews like I wish I would have. I get very bad service. My previous phone would work all over my house, especially in "my chair". Now I have to go outside to use the phone, and still get broken up reception out there. Most of the time, I can hear who I'm talking to, but they cannot hear me. I have heard the caller on the other end say, "Your phone sucks!" numerous times.
  • Pros: Decent camera, but you cannot save rotated pictures. "Pretty-ish" Could be acceptable for someone who has never had a phone to know that there are a lot of better ones out there.
  • Cons: I gave it a rating of 4 for design because it "butt-dials" everytime it's in my pocket; and you cannot access the screen if the phone is closed., I gave a 1-worst for features, because there are very few and inconvenient to get to., I have a 1-worst for performance because my service/reception/number of bars are so bad that I was convinced that Verizon had sold the tower in my town.

  • Excerpt: I really liked the phone at first honestly. But after a month, i had the problem everyones had with it, the screen. The backlight goes off. about a fifty/fifty chance its gonna be messed up. Unfortunately for me, the camera trick, doesnt work....  Other then that, battery life is fine for me, and it doesnt really lag, but this is A MAJOR Complaint.
  • Pros: Looks Good, Decent Life
  • Cons: The SCREEN

bad phone but found a way to somewhat fix a big problem

miss lissa lou, Phone Arena

  • Excerpt: ive had this phone for a while and this is my second one. it gets dirt under the screen really easy and i traded the first one for this one because the screen would go completly white when i turned it on and my phone locks when i turn it on. (thank god i memorized wat my password was) but when your screen goes white like that press your side camera button and you should get your screen back to normal. this is the only way i found how to fix that.
  • Pros: sleek and was fun to look at
  • Cons: poor battery, gets dirt under screen. and whites out all the time.
