I got this phone a couple of days ago.I got it from walmart on the 30$ straight talk plan for 60$. In my opinion it should be about 30$ for the quality that it is. For people wanting a basic phone it would be fine, but if you want to do anything on the web browser that this phone has, you will be very disappointed in it. I could do anything but check my email and look at the handful of preloaded websites(walmart.com was one of them).Trying to do anything on facebook was very cumbersome and it lagged terribly. I tried to do a basic google search to test its capabilities and it wouldn't load any pages even on a basic level.It wouldn't even proceed to the search page. Don't expect email notifications if you have a gmail account either. If the web browser had been even marginally better i might have kept the phone but it was lowsy. The screen quality is also poor, and the buttons are tiny. Also, just a small annoyance is that when I was texting, it defaults to the t9word setting whichs forces you to press the spacebar twice everytime you want to start typing a new word. I changed the setting but when i exited the text messages and then entered again later to text someone else, it again defaulted to the t9word setting. In other words, you cannot go to the phone settings to change it permanently. The phone does not come with a micro sd card and that is the only way to utilize the mp3 player.
Anyway, if all you want is a basic phone you might like it, but i would suggest finding one that is cheaper. On this phone I definitely felt like I did not get what i paid for. A basic phone shouldn't be sixty dollars. Straight talk's website and various customer reviews made it sound better than it was. I guess i didn't do enough research on it. Hope this reviews helps anyone considering this phone.
