I needed something easy when I traveled to China and Australia. Easy to put a sim in, and works, but within a month I found I could no longer hear the caller unless I put it on speaker phone- and if I put in ear plugs I could hear them but they couldn't hear me! So some glitch went on there. Great, however, for texting and plans in other countries are cheap for that. Overall, it lasted while I was overseas, but that was a few months - and with the last couple as speakerphone only. So that's something to consider. It's cheap, it won't get stolen, and it does get in TV to watch while waiting for planes/etc. Nothing fancy, but gave me a life line so I wouldn't get stranded.

Another downside, as mentioned, is that it's really hard to navigate and the instruction manual is very very limited.

Every once in a while I like to take a break from my smartphone because I honestly believe it makes me stupid. My attention span is worse than a goldfish because there's always something to browse, post, update with a smartphone. Not so with this thing. This phone is old school. No internet access, no facebook, instagram, wifi (which means no one is tracking you that way either) just good ol' talk and text. I can hear the other party perfectly and they say the same. The F1 game on here is pretty adorable. I giggle every time I play it.

For the price and being unlocked it is a good deal. The phone is made of plastic and probably not waterproof....but if you don't want to be tied down with a contract with your phone company , it is a real good deal. The reception and text quality is on par with any other phone. Bluetooth requires to reconnect everytime rather than automatic. Limited to 100 contacts displayed from the sim.

I do not rely upon a cell phone heavily, unlike most people I know. I only use mine to text my kids or make very occasional phone calls. Thus, I have a T-Mobile pay-as-you-go plan, and as a Gold Rewards customer, I only pay about 10-20 dollars for my phone annually! I bought this phone just because I wanted something smaller than my previous (and older) Nokia. I slipped the T-Mobile SIM card in, and everything worked perfectly. Everything seems to be working fine, the FM radio does a pretty good job, but the TV feature doesn't seem to be able to bring anything in except a fuzzy Spanish channel, if I'm lucky (I live in Orange County, CA). All in all, I can't complain about this phone, it does what I need, but if you're a more sophisticated consumer, you may need something more powerful.

I've enjoyed this phone for the last few days which replaces a primitive Nokia smart phone (Symbian anyone?). While the Nokia is on it's death bed I've started depending on my tablet as a wifi phone for calling and messaging and realized I don't need a $300-600 phone. I just need something to carry around when away from wifi. Also, with T-Mobile and other new wireless non-contract options there is no reason to be tied to a plan over $10-30/mo.

Bad:
>VGA (0.3 mp) camera - Not 2mp as listed by Amazon
>50 contact limit (over 100 listed on my SIM card).
>No way to add appointments to the calender - sometimes it's important to have a phone beeping at you
>Navigating options is challenging but the back pages of the manual are in English (Hint: To lock the keyboard press middle "go" button followed by the space key).
>mp3 listed by song only - no albums or artist

Good:
>This is an excellent sub $30 phone. >Yes, it's plastic but well made
>Good phone sound quality
> Light weight
>The keyboard keys have a nice feel.
>2 SIM cards
>SD card (why pay $50 more for $5 of storage)
>Tiny television - amaze friends and family with the single Spanish channel! Try that with an iPhone
>FM radio is nice and strong (antenna helps)
>mp3 player better than average
>Bluetooth easy to use
>Good battery life
>USB charging (this is a major selling point)

Other than the VGA camera (which isn't high enough resolution to record receipts for bluetoothing to a tablet or laptop to convert to pdfs for reimbursement - something I need) I would keep the phone. I'm planning to exchange the Samba TV for a W (with 1.3 mp camera).

I bought the phone because I wanted something with a real keyboard (I miss my blackberry) and with blue tooth capabilities. I didn't want to surf the internet, or take a lot of pictures. I just wanted a basic phone to text and talk on, not a home entertainment center.

The phone arrived okay, and it was not difficult to insert the SIM card into the phone and charged the phone overnight. You do have to pry the back cover off the phone as it doesn't slide off (I can't imagine this does the plastic clips holding it together much good). The setup menus are pretty straight forward and I had no trouble setting volume and the usual things like that.

The phone comes with a very limited manual printed in multiple languages (in letters so small eagle's can't read it even if they squint), a power supply and a USB micro cable to connect to the power supply (or your computer). When you connect to the computer, you choose to connect as mass storage or com port. In mass storage mode, the phone appears as a removable flash drive. You can see the photos, playlists, etc. on the phone. When connected as a com port, you will see it as a device in the Windows "Device Manager", or Windows "Devices and Printers", but I couldn't find a driver for the device or any way to make this useful so I'd recommend using this as a USB device all the time.

I could not find a way to change the date display from the European day-month-year (sensible format) to the American month-day-year (irritating) format and I thought that was odd. The blue tooth menu is located under the Organizer icon as the first option. Its possible to pair this device to another blue tooth device, change the phone's name, or do other things using the menu systems.
