See larger image.
Backhaul is one of the major pieces of a telecommunications network. Think of it as the limbs connecting AT&T's cell towers with AT&T's backbone network that provides access to the Internet.
In areas where either AT&T's 3G or 4G network is not available, you'll continue to receive service on the AT&T EDGE network, which offers availability in more than 13,000 US cities and along some 40,000 miles of major highways.
Note: AT&T's 4G mobile broadband coverage is not available in all areas. 4G speeds delivered by HSPA+ with enhanced backhaul; availability increasing with ongoing backhaul deployment.

Communications & Internet
Android Gingerbread Operating System
The Pantech Pocket runs the Android 2.3 operating system (dubbed Gingerbread) which features a cleaner, more refined interface with new icons, improved top notification bar, and more intuitive navigation.
Multitasking in Gingerbread allows you the ability to run more than one app at a time. If you're playing a game, you can easily switch to an incoming e-mail and then switch back to the game without losing your place. And like the previous version of Android ("Froyo"), Gingerbread provides support for Adobe Flash Player 10.1 for access to the full Web.
The onscreen keyboard makes it easier to type thanks to additional spacing between the keys and larger font sizes. And the more you use the keyboard, the easier typing will be as the enhanced suggest feature records previous input history to make better suggestions.
The Pocket also brings one-touch access to the popular Google mobile services you use every day. It also provides easy access to both personal and corporate e-mail, calendars, and contacts supported by Exchange Server and Gmail. And through Android Market, you'll get access to thousands of useful applications, widgets, and fun games to download and install on your phone, with many more apps being added every day.

Top Customer Reviews
One thing about this particular model is that it is BIG and has a screen to boot. I read negative reviews about the size of this phone and that's understandable. Nonetheless, I did not find it too terribly big and in fact, it fits in my hand perfectly. The biggest attraction is that it is a simple phone to use, yet just the right amount of apps to keep one happy. If you are looking for a blow your socks off phone, this will not do that. However, if you are looking for a "gateway" device that will accustom you to the smartphone, then this is it. Texting and surfing the web on this phone is a breeze.
Surprisingly, the battery has held up for a couple of days given the size of this phone.
The reviewer "Beach" above provided remarkable technical details, so i won't go on about that.
I believe there is a phone for everyone, and the Pocket is definitely for me.
It's great for browsing the internet and reading e-books. The screen does not hurt the eyes!
If you're a reader looking for a budget phone and don't want to spend the cash on an e-reader, then this is a good option. AT&T is selling this for $0.99 on a 2-year contract. Yep, 99 cents!
For people interested in getting their first smartphone, The Pantech Pocket is a good choice. It runs on Android, so you have access to the Android Market (with tons of free apps!) and remember that Amazon has their own app market! The Pantech Pocket has a very durable construction and feels very secure in one's hand.
I do have a problem with Amazon's listing, it claims the Pantech Pocket has a dual-core processor, it doesn't, Amazon is lying about that specification. It's a single core running at 1 Ghz. Amazon, please do not lie about phone specs, it's false-advertising.
The Pantech Pocket still has more than enough processing power for most people, especially first time smartphone users.
For anyone that would prefer a durable basic Android smartphone, and likes to read books or the internet, the Pantech Pocket is good choice.
The shape of the phone does make it wider. I did not have a problem holding the phone to my ear because it has a dimpled texture all the way around. I am a guy, but I don't have huge hands.
If you are looking for the latest 15 core super ultra amoledified+ HD screened phone with a camera quality lense this is not it.Read more ›
My favorite things:
The size is perfect. The screen is a really good size for watching, movies and reading. I read on this one frequently and as soon as I finish it goes on my pockets. It has four button keys to easily access menu, home, back and search functions. The battery is amazing, it provides many hours with brightness.
Room for improvement:
This smartphone has a back camera, but not front camera. So if you are planning on doing some video calls to friends and family, your only option is to use the back camera, but you won't see them. The other thing is that if you turn it off, it takes a lot more time than Pantech Burst to re-initiate functions.
Overall, I love this phone. It makes me sad it doesn't have front camera but I have seen they tried to improve the things I have observe on my phone with the Pantech Burst. My husband has the Pantech Burst and he is really happy with it. Sadly, the only thing he would change is that his phone has a poor battery that he has too keep charging frequently.
