What People Are Saying

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great texting phone PROS: 1, Slide out keyboard. It doesn't make sense to press a number 3 times to get one letter. That's pathetic, impractical, very annoying way to text and can get tedious. After upgrading from the number pad phones, I don't plan to go back. There is an emoticon button, I don't use it but it has a happy face (my favorite shape) so I think it's cute and I like it. The added back light makes it look nice. 2, Durable. I've dropped it multiple times, to the point the back case and battery flew out and it didn't even have the slightest bit of damage. 3, Thread style conversations. it keeps a history of your conversation so you can remember what you talked about by scrolling back down and don't have to deal with the hassle of constantly emptying your inbox/outbox 4, you CAN turn off word prediction 5, Sleek shape/design. It's not too big, not too small. It fits in your hand it's not too bulky you can't fit it in your pocket. It has different colors to choose from so it is a unisex phone. 6, Affordable. Got it for 60 bucks at WAL-MART. I think the product quality matches the price I paid CONS: 1, any number you texted ever in your life is saved on a list and you can't delete those numbers unless you do a full phone reset. 2, left and right soft keys can't be changed. It doesn't make sense to have the WEB as the preset left soft key considering it is an extra paid for feature and the intended purpose of a phone is to call/text, not browse online... 3, the message inbox does not give you a warning if the inbox is too full the receive messages. you just simply don't receive it (until you delete some old messages) so your contacts are left hanging, wondering if you're mad at them or avoiding them 4, does not have a slot to put a phone charm.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Sturdy Phone I have had this phone for a year and a half now and it has literally been through everything. I'm not usually hard on phones but about a week after I bought it, I dropped it into a full glass of lemonade. I popped the battery out, drove 25 minutes home, then took a hairdryer to to and stuck it in a bag of rice. It worked! It gets dropped daily on blacktop, tile, cement, ect., and it has held up wonderfully. Then last night, I dropped it into a glass of pop. Once again popped the battery out, hairdryer, and a bag of rice and it works perfectly today. I wouldn't recommend doing these things to your phone, but accidents happen and this one has lived through them all!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Easy to Use "I bought two of these phone for my 11 and 9yr old girls. and I though at first the phone was going to be too complicated for them especially since it was their first phone. But I was soon surprised that the UI of the phone is very intuitive and it also has a lot of little features that young kids seem to like. As far as battery life and durability, its a great phone. My kids have put them through quite a bit and they still seem rock solid. We have had them over a year already and we are very happy with them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use I just got this phone and it is so easy to use. I have had a number of phones over the years but this one works best for me. I don't need the fancy Iphone with all that junk in it.
