One of the worst cell phones we've tested in a long time

from PC Magazine (4 years ago)

The PCD Wrangler is one of the worst cell phones I've tested in recent memory.

The PCD Wrangler is one of the worst cell phones I've tested in recent memory. It's a leftover from 2006, an electronic Venus flytrap at the retail counter, waiting quietly to ensnare unsuspecting U.S. Cellular shoppers. The PCD Wrangler's $19.99 entry price, when coupled with U.S. Cellular's eminently reasonable monthly plans, makes it seem like a good value. But if PCD wants its new brand to gain a foothold in America, it needs to do much better than this.

Its weak call quality and lack of trendy smartphone features give this tough flip phone a glass jaw

On the surface, the rough-and-tumble $19.99 PCD Wrangler may seem like good bargain, especially for those looking for a tough phone mainly for making mobile calls.

You'd be in a world of hurt if you chose this rugged handset, though. Not only does it offer weak audio quality, its interface is not a pleasure to use.

The Verizon Wireless Razzle is a minor update from the Blitz, as the most noticeable change is the new rotating bottom with QWERTY keyboard and music controls. The Razzle continues to have fairly mediocre reception and call quality, which is a concern if you plan to use it mostly for phone calls. The overall design and style of the Razzle is teen friendly, and the low price does help if it’s accidently damaged or lost, but the Samsung Intensity is in the same price range as the Razzle, yet it offers better reception and still comes with a QWERTY keyboard.

When the Verizon Wireless Blitz came out late last year, we were quite taken by the handset's cute and compact shape, even though some thought it looked a little fat and squat. It's not a really advanced phone, but we like the design, and simple features like a 1.3-megapixel camera and stereo Bluetooth are good enough for most people.

The Quickfire from AT&T makes good on its promise of providing a good messaging experience, but it falls short in other areas

PCD Quickfire

from Phone Scoop (7 years ago)

The Quickfire almost makes good on all that it sets out to do. It covers the basics well. The touch screen may not be the most responsive that we've used, but the menu system is easy to use and works well. The calling features work well, as does the contacts application.

The Quickfire almost makes good on all that it sets out to do. It covers the basics well. The touch screen may not be the most responsive that we've used, but the menu system is easy to use and works well.

The calling features work well, as does the contacts application. While the Quickfire manages mobile IM and email well, it lacks threaded SMS, and this is a major detractor in our eyes.

The music and gallery applications are a bit slow, but the camera takes decent pictures and the video software gets the job done, though the results aren't spectacular

The Quickfire has its flaws, but considering all you get for the money, there aren't many other phones that can best it.

Messaging focused device with a full QVGA resolution touchscreen display

PCD Quickfire

from MobileBurn (7 years ago)

In the end, we like the AT&T Quickfire more for what it tries to do than perhaps what it actually does well.

In the end, we like the AT&T Quickfire more for what it tries to do than perhaps what it actually does well. It's an inexpensive device, at $99 with a new 2 year contract, but it still provides users with the benefits of a solid design - including a durable touchscreen display. It has it faults, to be sure, but its still an endearing little handset that is worth checking out. We give it a "Recommended" rating.

Poor Phone

PCD Wrangler

(4 years ago)

I can not stand this phone. I would not recommend it to anyone. The speakers are very poor it sounds like they are blown unless you turn it so low you can barely hear it. It is a very cheap phone and im not talking about the price.

ANSWER FOR MUTE PROBLEM

PCD Razzle

(5 years ago)

Jacquelyn- in case you havent found out yet, there is a little key next to the space bar that has a picture of a cell phone shaking on it, if you hold down that button it should turn vibrate mode on and off. if you use your keyboard lock you shouldnt have the issue of it turning on by itself.

Ok so it's compact, it's good for texting and it's cheap.. BUT When you close the phone it locks.. except that the unlock button is the large OK button on the OUTSIDE of the phone.

Ok so it's compact, it's good for texting and it's cheap.. BUT When you close the phone it locks.. except that the unlock button is the large OK button on the OUTSIDE of the phone. It calls people and connects to the internet on its own while it's in my pocket or purse. This is embarrassing and costly. I get charged for those minutes/mb and it annoys my friends and family who get calls from me while the phone is in my pocket.
