After owning (and washing) the Samsung magnet, I was skeptical about the quality of this seemingly similar phone. However, I found that the Pantech Link is by far one of the best feature phones you can buy from at&t. I'll go over the device step by step.

1. Hardware
The keys have a great tactile fell. They are easy to press, and are very domed, which is great for quick, accurate typing. The screen is unusually high resolution for a $10 phone. The 1.3 megapixel camera is plenty, and takes clear, crisp pictures. The video camera is okay. Both allow you to chose how large of an image you want to take. There is an expansion slot for a micro-SD card up to 32gb (iPhone size!). This is necessary as the phone's internal memory is only 80 mb. The back casing has a rubbery grip feel, which is nice. There is a fairly good quality speaker on the back. The volume up and down buttons are small and cramped. The proprietary pantech power Jack doubles as a headphone port, but if you want to use iPod headphones, you need to buy and adaptor. Overall, the phone feels high quality.

2. Connectivity
Connects to AT&T 3G network, GSM and EDGE. I'm a Mac owner, so I use the Bluetooth file transfer utility on my Mac to transfer stored pictures, video, music, etc. The phone allows you to transfer files directly on to the micro SD card, which is critical for transferring on songs and videos. On windows, you can use windows media player to transfer songs using a special USB cable, sold separately. Web browser is simple, access to Media net, GPS, Yellow pages mobile, ATT music, ATT mobile email (gmail included) and the app center. Also access to ATT's new online locker.

3. Messaging
This phone is first and foremost a phone for messaging. The text messaging application is quite nice.

The layout is nice if you want a "Blackberry" style QWERTY layout without a data plan. Sound quality is good, and it has excellent battery life.
The phone is lightweight, barely over 3 ounces with the battery. It is just under 4.5 inches long, 2.3 inches wide and a tad over 1/2" thick. The display is 2.4" diagonally. The keyboard is raised, full QWERTY, and the phone accepts up to 32GB SD memory.

The phone includes all the typical compatibility, camera, video, etc. The camera is a mediocre at just 1.3 MP.
I ordered this phone for my son. He cares for his phones, having had his previous phone, a Motorola Razr, for years. The same with his iPod, he takes very good care of his stuff. He doesn't get them wet, accidentally wash them, throw them around, leave them exposed to heat or cold, etc.
He also keeps a protective case on the phone. Basically he treats his phones with great care. After about 6 months, his Link suddenly went black. It still had power but the screen would not come on.

We had it replaced by AT&T under warranty coverage. They don't send you a new phone, but instead a refurbished one. So he had the replacement for again 6 to 7 months. This time the keys stopped working correctly. Since AT&T's little game is that when they replace a phone you get not a new 12 months of coverage, but simply what was left on the original phone, the warranty is up.

I realize experience may vary, but I've had two of these, both failed within half a year - not good!

I would tend to avoid this phone. My family has also owned different Pantech models, and I have run into durability issues on those also, with multiple failures in just a couple of months of ownership. All of our non-Pantech phones seem to last, which makes me think it's the quality not the owner.
Based on my exp
erience, not a good phone at all!

After my second Samsung Impression and dealing with the crap from that stupid phone as well as the first, I ordered a refurbished Pantech Link. Loved it at first. Menu was cool, txting was easy, saves conversations like the iPhone which makes keeping up with conversations a breeze, and I had great signal. After having the phone for 2 months now, I am ready to smash the stupid thing with a hammer. I rarely have signal and when I do it vanishes for a minute and then returns. The phone will say my txts failed and even with signal, they will not send. It's frustrating when you're in a time crunch and the phone refuses to send certain messages but has no problems with others.. Then I find out that sometimes they did send, multiple times, so I'm blowing up people's phone and looking like an idiot. When I answer calls sometimes, after 3 seconds of the phone ringing, there will be no sound but record the call on my log. However, the call was sent to voicemail as soon as I answered. I hate this phone. I am going back old school and getting a Samsung SGH-A727 that I had no problems with until my upgrade in July when I try the HTC Inspire. Don't waste your money on the Link..

This phone does what i want. its simple and is great for messaging. the few things i don't like about it is: low battery life, and lacks a few elements of customization such as changing the shortcuts on the navigation pad. as for the battery problem, you can pick up a few extra batteries here at for super cheap.

I bought this phone from the AT&T store at our mall, and I didn't even want it, but my mom did, because we share a phone. Anyways, this phone takes just as good of quality video, and pictures, as my normal camera does. And texting is really easy with all the buttons. My mom likes the new speed dial on the phone, where you have the option of which number you want to call for that person on the speed dial. Personally, I use the alarms on the phone as well, to remind me when to take my pills, and to wake me up. It was an exceptional phone for the price we paid for it, which was 10 dollars.
