Top Customer Reviews
-Excellent call quality and volume.
-The microphone is good.
-The phone is customizable, but it is easy to keep the advanced stuff out of the way when you don't need it.
-You can get information without even opening the phone via the little screen on the front, and the notification LEDs.
-The notification system is nice. (this is from a webOS and Android user)
-Battery life is good.
-There's a lot of AT&T logos on this thing. One above the outside screen, one below the inside screen, one on the 'OK' button, and when the phone is open, the outside screen has the AT&T logo on it.
-There is some AT&T bloatware on this, but it generally keeps out of your way.
-Shortcut buttons under the inside screen. These will be useful to some, but it can give the feeling that there are too many buttons on the thing.
-A control phone with voice button. Useful to some, but a dedicated button is overkill.
-The outside has a bit of cheapy plastic that creaks sometimes.
-The camera is placed precisely where your fingers are going to be.
This is a very nice phone if you just want it for the basics (calling, and the occasional SMS). It's probably one of the best phones on AT&T if you just want to call people. I originally had a HTC Aria (Android). This beats it in call quality in and out. This is also quite good for technologically illiterate people. It's very easy to use.
This one deserves five stars.
It has enough features to keep us satisfied like the calendar for keeping track of appointments, the pill reminder alarms, the tip calculator, regular calculator and voice commands.
It has a lot of stuff we don't need like, internet, email, messaging, ect.
Signal strength is great all the time, but we have a great cell tower structure here. The battery lasts a good long time and the voices sound just fine, clear and sharp. I think too many people want to get a FREE phone and then expect it to wipe their butts for them. It is a really good basic phone and with the ability to have large keys and large fonts, it's a good phone for old folks.
I can say, this phone fills these requirements fine! I do not have full bars at my home, but calls have been crisp clear, both using the ear piece and with the speaker phone. I have to respectfully disagree with the reviewer that says that her calls are garbled. Perhaps there is a flaw in that particular phone since I am not experiencing this at all. At worst, the calls are slightly tinny, but still clear, understandable, loud enough and I have used many phones much worse than this. I live in an area with poor cell coverage, and was worried that I would miss the strong reception that my Motorola Tundra was able to pull in. Well, it has done fine with reception. I have to say that I have had bars in some very difficult locations and am very pleased. I'm not having a problem with battery life, but again, I'm not doing a bunch of fancy stuff with my phone; just using it as a phone.
While this phone seems to be marketed to the "elderly", I am not yet a senior. I just want a simple phone that does one thing well; make phone calls. This does have some of the extras, and as usual, they feel very extra and not needed, such as the 3 buttons on top for shortcuts. After programing these to my frequently called numbers, I realized they require two steps (push the short cut key, then the send key). It is easier just to use the regular speed dial buttons. I do like having the Breeze Mode that gives you a simple menu.Read more ›
