What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great phone for talking or texting I like this phone. I like the keypad, being able to feel the keys. I like the hands-free speakerphone function. I like the size. I like this phone. I only use a few apps that work and that is all I need.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from THIS PHONE SUCKS I bought this phone 2 years ago, and it has been the worst 2 years with any technology ever. This phone is frustrating and annoying and always manages to fail at inopportune times. I would not wish this phone on my worst enemies. The texting program often closes and tells you that you can't use it anymore. So then you must turn the phone off or take the battery out and restart it. This would happen on average 3 times a day. I hate this phone so much, I just look at it and am frustrated.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do NOT buy this phone if its available anymore It is TERRIBLE. One of my worst phones yet. The first 6 months were great, now its a horrible piece of trash. It vibrates just a tad and then either goes to home screen or app manager screen. I just want to smash this thing to smitherines. I hate this phone.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I do NOT recommend this product. This product crashes way to much! It won't let me use my keyboard at times, as when I press certain letters it takes me to email or browser. It also force closes WAY to much. Sometimes, it glitches when I am doing something. And it looks like it's seizing. Literally. It randomly keeps flashing the recently used apps page and changing from internet to home screen. The only thing I like about this phone is the price.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible Phone At first, it was great. I had no problems with it at all. Then, it started crashing and going back to the home screen when I was on the browser or started texting. Whenever I use the keyboard I have to try multiple times to send a text. It also tells me occasionally that the memory is full. Photos are awful. I'd say it was just mine, but my wife has the exact same model and hers is doing the same thing. Don't get this phone! You'll be sorry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice phone for my needs Pros: slide-out QWERTY keyboard, easy to use, email and browsing capabilities. Cons: phone always locks up when making a phone call. I got this when upgrading my old phone. I wanted to text; check my email; browse the internet as well as make phone calls. This phone fit the bill and had the slide out keyboard. I've owned this for about a year and my only 2 complaints with this phone are: 1. The phone goes into lock mode when making phone calls. This is undesirable when you need to enter other information after the phone number (automated phone systems; banking etc.). You have to touch the screen; swipe to unlock and then you have a few seconds to press which ever function you need before the screen goes blank & the lock mode is engaged. No other phone I've seen or tried does this. 2. Need to update the OS. A lot of newer apps are incompatible with this version of OS and this reduces the functionality of the phone.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not The Best Phone I find with this phone it has minimal storage. Also it times out and messaging applications stop working so I have to constantly shut my phone down to be able to keep texting. Also it jumps from screen to screen when I am in the middle of typing a text message. Also kind of slow. It's pretty user friendly though.
