What people are saying
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Internal Memory Issues AND Group Text Issues The other reviews seem to explain the internal memory problem of the phone but I've experienced even worse. I have a 32GB SD card in my phone and I've done everything to attempt to save files to it but the device still won't allow me to save files to the card. I'm still having to use the least amount of apps possible though I need various messaging apps to communicate with my colleagues. So, speaking of messaging, whenever I send group texts, responses don't show up within the same conversation; they show up from the individual contact. This makes it very difficult to follow the progression of the conversation, so when I need to message the group again, I have to go back to the conversation of origin, but if I wasn't the one who sent the first text it's a guessing game. I have no way of describing this problem to find a solution online, but this has always been an issue with the phone -I've had this model phone for a few years on and off now- but it's become more and more prevalent as my involvement with various groups grows. I recommend this phone for teens, as I had it when I was a teenager and it served me well, but I definitely don't recommend it for adults who need to use it for business communication purposes.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Extremely frustrating I was new to smart phones so I wanted something that was user friendly. This phone worked great for the first 4 months. I don't really use apps but I ran out of space very quickly. The worse thing about this product is that I have to constantly restart it. The icons sometimes don't appear on the screen. The keyboard doesn't pop up when I want to text, even after restarting it a few times. The call quality isn't very good either. Its difficult to hear the person on the other end.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not bad if your new to smart phones Its not a bad phone at all. Had a storage issue. The phone dose not have a lot of storage if you like apps and games. But after I rooted the phone and added an app that allowed me to link all my apps to the micro sd card...that solved that. No other issues.
