Can You Hear Me!?!?!?!?!?!

Posted on: June 1st, 2010 by Amy Miller

The good: This phone is very consistant with the pros and cons. Good for talkThe bad: I agree with all of the other cons I have read but recently the people I call say that I sound far away and I have to yell into the phone for them to hear me. I use to make fun of those people but now I'm just embarassed.Summary: I never did like this phone, and now that I can't really talk on it I think it is junk. Anyone know what I can do to maybe fix my problem? Any answers would be appreciated.

Not for someone who text messages a lot

Posted on: September 17th, 2008 by Brian H

The good: Good battery life, clear sound quality, decent reception, slim, no camera(for those who have jobs that dont allow you to bring in a camera phone ie military)The bad: Extremely slow text messaging in any mode(tap,t9, or word prediction),very slow applications, the ringer isnt very loud, cant load your own ringtones, the number pad is really cramped especially if you are trying to text, screen quality is really poorSummary: If all you are going to be using the phone for is calling people then this might be the phone for you. If you like your phone to do anything besides just calling people then it probably wont make you very happy. I text message quite a bit and i have nearly smashed this phone on the ground several times because it is just so slow and laggy. I timed it once when i was texting just a simple "i love you" to my wife. From the time I inputed the text to when the text showed up on the screen it took 37 seconds. Everything else that is weird about the phone I can live with. The texting just makes me furious.

Basic phone for basic usage

Posted on: August 9th, 2008 by Anonymous

The good: It's small, slim and perfect for making calls. It has a battery door lock. The bad: None that I have found so far. Summary: This is a great phone for someone who uses a cellphone for it's original purpose: to make and receive telephone calls. The call quality is good and audible. It's perfect for the thrifty shopper.

It's a phone.

Posted on: June 15th, 2008 by Gary Forbes

The good: It's a phone, it lets you call people. It's thin, so it fits in my pocket easily. No flip or slide, so it's simpler and less likely to break. Decent battery life.The bad: It doesn't wash my car?Summary: I haven't had any problems with this phone, it just works. It is pretty solid, the only flaw I can find is that the anti-slip coating has rubbed off on the corners from being slid into my pocket. I also find it easy to talk with, unlike some phones that are difficult to hold to your ear. Alas, I still have to wash my car myself...
