Overall, a good, reliable phone
I had one of these for 1 1/2 years, and got a service message from my provider saying i was off my contract. I have now had it for about 4 months afterward because I enjoy the use of the phone. the only reason I might get a new one is because I was dumb enough to take it swimming with me, more likely to replace the shot battery and continue to use it though. Highly recommend this phone.

A Real Workhorse
I've had this phone for 4 1/2 years and the battery is just now giving out....still works as good as the day I got it....a real workhorse! It's tough, durable, easy to use....the only downfall is the camera....terrible quality pics but good phone overall

Would NOT buy again
Thought I would love the qwerty keypad...wrong! The buttons are too small & have a curved surface. This means you cannot easily type on them. I can't even use my fingertips...instead, I have to use my fingernails, which isn't comfortable or speedy. The camera takes lousy pictures. The battery drains quickly because the phone's screen is always being turned on in my pocket, due to the exterior buttons being pushed while it gets jostled around. And the worst thing of all: a lot of dust has somehow gradually accumulated UNDER the screen, which means there is NO way to remove it! Between that & the screen getting scratched up over time, it is VERY hard to use the screen outdoors, especially. Also, the system lags between the time you press a button & it responds. Oh, & the front number keys aren't easy to use, due to their wavy, slanted design. Avoid this one...I wish I would've!

Amazing, long-lasting, superb phone
I have had this phone for two in a half years, although I have a 2-yr contract. I decided not to change it yet because it was awesome. It is greeat for texting and calling---volume excellent--- and photos. The downside is the internet connection---not to great---... BUT. if you are the person wanting to use the internet daily get a smartphone. this is a basic phone, and is great for the basic stuff it's supposed to be used for. After 2 yrs yes it has gone a bit bad...a few of the keyboard buttons are not working, but I can't expect it to be working forever. I am about to get a new phone now, but this phone I reccomand to parents not into phones and not into data plans. And also this phone is terrific for kids from ages 10 to 12. After 12, they like more of a smart phone type. But it's ur decision! :)
