What People Are Saying

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible phone Phone randomly would turn off, couldn't go on internet, data did not work. While on Wi-Fi, some functions on phone stopped working. Froze a lot and now it won't turn on at all and when it does turn on, the phone says system not supported.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from DON'T BUY THIS PHONE I purchased this phone about a year ago, and its given me nothing but trouble since then. Its unresponsive, slow, annoying, and running on Android 2.2. If you want a phone with lots of features, smooth usage and great value, DON'T BUT THIS ONE!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best for person going into first smartphone. This has been my long time companion since joining Kuudo in Canada and I am aware of the fact that it does NOT replace a Laptop in any way ... but for someone needing to actually use a phone and going from an older model to a basic smartphone this is the best I can see ... I just bought a dualcore because I intend to watch my DVD collection while i travel and I will keep this one unlocked to use as backup or to buy prepaid cards ... Camera, Video, sound, fm player are all flawless ... If your primary use becomes the internet or facebooking is your calling .... DUAL CORE with Ice cream sandwich is your calling ...
