Unreliable

lainey, Viewpoints

  • Excerpt: We have 3 of these phones in our family.  2 of them had to be replaced during the 1 year warranty period, and 1 of them had to be replaced just after the warranty expired, so they do not hold up. I am hoping that we don't have to replace the first 2 before our 2 year contract is up. The button for the camera is on the outside of the phone in a spot that frequently gets bumped, so I am always taking pictures of my pocket - this is extremely annoying.

Screen turns black

moomoochanchan, Viewpoints

  • Excerpt: It's cute, but can break easily. My first phone (currently using a 2nd one since I'm getting a new phone) screen turned black, and you couldn't see anything at all. We bought 3 for my sister, my brother, and for myself. My sister's cellphone's screen didn't work, and then later, the sound didn't work nor the vibration. My brother's was the screen. My current one is fine right now, but when I close my phone gently, it turns off by itself. So, it gets annoying.

Piece of Junk

Overstock
24 May 2009
  • Summary: I just bought this phone in Feb. 2008 I was initially was very please with the phone until the phone started cutting off during my conversation. Which was manageable until couple of weeks ago. A week after the 60 days warranty when the screen went blank. Please do not buy this phone if you can help it.

Phone Shutting Down for No Reason

2510mvd, Ebay
11 June 2007
  • Summary: Phone would shut-off for no reason. It was easy to work, but if I left it idle for any period of time, it would shut down, and I would have to take off the battery, put back on before it would re-start back up.

This phone is flawed

tiedyequeen42, Ebay
1 June 2007
  • Summary: This phone starts out looking really great. Cute features, camera, video, recording capabilities. However, my husband and I both have this phone, and since we bought them a year ago, we have had them replaced a total of FIVE TIMES due to defects. Now, after a year, they are no longer under warranty and we are stuck buying a new phone after this one has crapped out YET AGAIN. Randomly, the screen will come up white and you can't call in or out.

No Title

  • Pros: lots of features, ability to have themes, add ringtones, nice voice quality, good signal strength
  • Cons: camera button is in a bad position and interferes with call feature, only one ringtone and one theme offered with the phone, more choices would be nice..but they want you to purchase them separately.

User Review

  • Summary: Good little phone, but I must have had a duff one as I have had to send it back because the phone would cut off when I was talking on it (even with a full battery) and then the screen would freeze! So I'm now waiting for it to be repaired or to receive a new one. I did really like the phone, so I hope it's just a minor blip, and would definitely recommend one!
  • Pros: The flashing blue lights when it rings or receives messages, good sound with MP3
  • Cons: The camera button on the side of the phone kept going off and taking pictures of my pocket! Not very good picture quality
