Got this phone and it is GREAT!
I just got this phone because I had an iPhone but I lost it, I am 15, my mom told me if I wanted a phone I had to find a used one on eBay. I was looking and I remembered a phone my friend used to have that I always wanted to use. I found an env touch. I absolutely it, it has the best if both worlds, touch and actual keyboard! I have a prepaid verizon plan and I'm glad I can use it with the basic phone because it's cheaper. An d while it can't have apps and things because it's not a smartphone it still has web browser which I'm glad about. Overall I love it. And also I love the camera it takes really clear pictures and has panorama. My iPhone 4 didn't even have that!

Best basic phone I ever had!
I have had this phone for about three years. It is a good transfer phone for people that aren't sure about a touch screen. This has both touch screen and full inside keyboard. I got this phone because it has two screens, figured this way if I ever broke one screen I would still have the other. Recently I have had issues with lighting on the phone going from bright to dark and it likes to randomly shut off with a full charged battery. Overall, it was a great phone but I think it is getting to the end of its life.

I found my perfect phone!
I wanted a phone with advanced features and a big, beautiful touch screen without paying for a data plan. I got this phone about a month ago and it's perfect. The screen is wonderfully responsive, the menus are easy to navigate, and it's great being able to put shortcuts on the home screen.
The speakers are loud enough for listening to music, but I also love the option of hooking in headphones (standard 3.5mm) when I want. Multitasking while listening to music is great. My only complaint as far as music goes is that if I get a text while listening to music, the music stops and won't resume until I close or answer the text. This is solved by putting the phone in "music only" mode when I need to.
The camera is great and offers some fun features (panoramic shots, "intelligent" mode, smile detector, facial makeover). It also has an auto-focus feature, which is really important for taking decent pictures up close.
Texting is a cinch. The keys on the QWERTY keyboard are nice and big. You can also use the T-9 WORD input on the touch screen for one-handed texting. You can even turn the phone and use the virtural QWERTY keyboard on the front touch screen! Pretty much every texting option is available to you with this phone.
I haven't used the browser on it, so I can't comment on the quality of that.
I basically feel like this phone offers all the qualities you'd expect from a newer, data plan-required phone without the cost of the data plan. I'm planning on keeping this phone for a loooong time.
