4.0 out of 5 stars Decent phone, nothing fancy September 23, 2012
I've had this phone for about two weeks, and it was a good buy. Very basic. Just what I was going for.
-Excellent call quality. everyone is heard/hears me loud and clear. I live in a rural area, and still get pretty strong reception.
-Easy access to folders containing photos, music, etc.
-Seemingly sturdy construction. The flip screen is not flimsy and has a solid snap open and close.
-Battery life is great. I'm currently on day 6 of one charge, and I expect at least another day and a half.
-Keypad is nice and big. Easy to read and use even at night.

-Not very customizeable. You can change some font colors, select between a few stock ringtones, change the background picture, but that's about it.
-Some functions are somewhat convoluted. Seems like there could be better, more streamlined ways to access certain functions.
-The external display does not light up unless you have just closed the phone or received a call/message. You can't press a button to check the time or anything. Just an annoyance.
-As for text messaging, T9 is the default setting. You can change to ABC if you want, but there is no way to permanently change it from T9. But that's just a personal preference.

Overall, a good basic phone. Some minor changes could be made, but I'm not picky. Makes great calls. I'd recommend if you don't need the frills of a smartphone.

4.0 out of 5 stars Talk, Text and Internet August 31, 2014
I've had this phone for almost two years. It does text really nice and does basic internet also if you have a data package (I was mildly surprised how well it does do internet with its bare bones basic browser). Picture quality of the camera and small screen display are the biggest drawbacks to this phone.
