The good: The battery life was great - I could go days on end without surprisingly recharging! The firm-grip feel of the buttons provided for easy access for dialing, navigating through the menus, etc. While calling, the sound quality was great. Neither I nor the person on the receiving end had any trouble hearing. Also, it should be noted that this phone is very VERY durable. The outer exteriors are a thick plastic. I am a huge klutz when it comes to phones and this one toughs it all out! Gotta give kudoThe bad: The phone only comes with two games - both of which are not that good. One of them being a standard blackjack game [with a very busty female dealer I might add - not sure why they made her like that] the other game, I apologize, slips my memory. Also, the web browser is very small given the small display - and extremely exhausting to navigate. Also, as stated earlier, the lack of a color display and camera, as well as some other new-age, now-standard gadgets, diminish the value of this phone.Summary: I used this phone for close to two years and must say that as a simple phone, it is great. It was my first phone actually! I guess you have to had cut it some slack for lacking the camera and color display and such seeing as how it was manufactured around 2002-2003. Nonetheless, this was a nice little great phone. I would recommend this phone for a standard user who wants great quality for little price.
