Mediocre

Overstock
17 October 2009
  • Summary: Bought this phone about 4 months ago when my old phone died at the hands of my toddler. It is easy to use, simple, and has pretty good audio quality compared to other phones I've owned. I do not use the internet with my cell phones, so I cannot speak to any features related to that. I found only about 2-3 ringtones that it comes with agreeable. It has an awfully loud alert when the battery is dying that cannot be changed or muted.

Sony Ericsson Z520a or Z525

kvjfdashb, Ebay
15 April 2009
  • Summary: Note: this item was listed as Sony Ericsson Z520a (AT&T) when I bought it on eBay, but the phone's menu/status screen says z525. I went from the Motorola RAZR V3 (screen died), to my old reliable 2005 model Sony Ericsson z500a, to this one. This phone's call quality is good. This phone has additional features, like push-to-talk, mobile e-mail, camera, Bluetooth, and useful apps. The screen on this phone is colorful and easy to see, even in sunlight.

  • Summary: This is a great little phone! I LOVE the "frames" you can choose from to take pictures in...especially the one with the hands hanging on the jail cell bars! Then I love the voice dial feature, makes dialing while driving so easy and with a blue tooth ear piece you can drive more safely while using the phone as you drive. Also, the lights on the phone move in various patterns and you can select one of the patterns to associate with everyone in your phone book.

Used cell phone

shermann3, Ebay
2 February 2009
  • Summary: The phone is in great physical conditon, as described. The battery lasts well for resonable, average talk time. However, the phone arrived with its memory full of the previous owners pictures and contacts. Not only is this a breach for someone from Illinois' privacy, but also a hassle for me to erase all that data. To use the master reset on the phone, a pass key was required - which the seller could not produce.

This phone is the cutest!

  • Summary: Like: The phone features cool, blue light-up patterns when ringing. It is a slim phone even though it is a flip. Easily personalized by popping off the cover and changing to whatever pattern or color you desire, so easy you can actually change it to match your outfits! Dislike: The camera feature is nice, although there is no flash. BUT, the camera button on the side of the phone, is so sensitive..

Excellent quality for the money

bluearwes, Ebay
6 October 2006
  • Summary: Excellent sound quality on both ends with this phone, though I have yet to test the Bluetooth functionality (waiting on a Samsung WEP200 to come in) other than transferring files. 16MB of memory is more than enough for taking a few pics, or having a few MP3 ringtones. Those who want more memory for MP3's in a GSM phone might want to look at the Motorola V635. My one major complaint is the instant camera button located on the left side of the phone body.

Killer Little Phone

ntrouble2much, Ebay
5 October 2006
  • Summary: I love this little phone. It has alot of space to save pics, video, sound and more. Lots of cool features, music maker, video maker, photo editor and more. Easy navigation thru the menu screens. Lots of stuff to download as well. Can access the net from the phone and is able to download well directly thru the phone. Not very expensive considering what you get for a phone.
