Rated 1 out of 5 by from Decent phone on HORRIBLE SERVICE I purchased this phone FOUR days ago, I have dropped more calls than ever on any other phone under every other provider! It does not send texts accurately AND I'm roaming in my home area! I REALLY wish I could turn this into a straight talk phone but US cellular makes it impossible to bring your own phone to any other service! I am CERTAIN it is because their service is HORRIBLE!!!
