Don't buy this phone!!!
on December 7, 2012
I bought this phone, because it was the cheapest Android 'smart' phone I could find... you really get what you pay for. The behavior of the phone is unpredictable. Mine particularly likes to restart itself at least once a day. When it restarts, you have to re-enter the PIN for the SIM card; until you've noticed what happened and do this, you can't get any calls. Although, the obnoxiously loud sound it plays every time you turn it off and on is quite noticeable. Sometimes I need to restart it, because all the icons just disappear, and the phone bricks itself. It never updates my g-mail automatically, no matter what settings I try, although facebook works. Several interesting apps just won't run on it. The built in memory is *very* small, so the miniSD add-on is essential. Also, the way it organizes contacts is really strange, and it won't show the name of the person calling half the time, even if they are in the contact list. Also, the speaker is terrible, and you can't hear much while talking to anyone. I don't know what they did to this phone to make Android run so s*****y, but I would really recommend spending a few more dollars for something not so terrible.
