I honestly hated this phone.
This phone is terrible from my experiences. It would randomly turn on and off and it would take forever to turn back on. I have had two in the past 3 years and this last one would not turn on what-so-ever after a year of owning this one. It was able to type easily but it would freeze quite often. To fix this, I would have to completely shut down the phone and turn it back on. I would NOT recommend this phone to anyone else. I've known quite a lot of other people who have had this phone and all say the same thing. The main problem is the fact that it does shut off at the worst times, and it shut off frequently. Almost every 2 minutes it would turn off for a period of half a year, which as you could probably understand it got a bit on my nerves. This would happen to each of the two phones I owned so it must have been a flaw in the design. Hopefully, this is not an item you plan to purchase. Maybe try another model if you're completely set on getting one that isn't a smart phone?

Finally Something "I" can actually text on,,,,,,,,
I have owned three of these over the last few years love it.The first one was run over and the second one was stolen.It`s a well built phone and is the first phone I have ever owned that I can actually text on with reasonable speed and comfort.The Bluetooth connection feature works awesome and with ease.I love the speaker phone because its actually load enough for me to hear.I use the camera all the time and transfer the files to my PC through the Bluetooth or through the micro usb data cable.Yeah it`s not a smart phone but I love it,it`s affordable and suits my needs just fine.I don`t know what I would do without it.Who wants a phone smarter than they are anyway.I highly recommend this phone.

The best phone I have owned.
I have had my env3 phone since July of 2009 with no problems (just a new battery last year) and have been eligible for an upgrade for two and a half years. Our service provider doesn't offer a phone even close to the quality of my env3 that does not require a data plan. I bought my husband one to replace the phone he lost, but he ran it through the washer and dryer in his pants pocket. I'm trying to find another one at a good price.

THE CAMRY OF ALL PHONES.
I've had my enV3 for over 7 years, which is what, 7,000 in phone-years? It's the most reliable and enduring piece of technology I've ever owned and probably ever will own.
It's no smartphone, sure, but it does boast some features that give it a leg-up over the slim-sided competition in my opinion. It's withstood countless drops and falls (including the one time I threw it into the middle of the road by mistake), you can store a credit card or ID discreetly inside the flip, and you can stand it up like a little tent, which is really quite endearing. Back in its day, the battery went for weeks. Today it goes for 2–3 days, depending on use, which is still more than the leading phone on the market.
Sure, it has some minor slips now and then (the increasingly-frequent missed texts, the randomly changing background photo), but at 7,000 years old who WOULDN'T have a few little accidents?
All in all I'm grateful for the time we've had together, and if I weren't getting booted from the family plan, I'd be looking forward to many more years with my loyal enV3.
