I've had this phone for three years now, the contract is just ending this month, and I must say, it has served me well.
The best thing about it is its durability. I've dropped this phone multiple time, once even off a two story balcony, and it's totally fine.
It's a little slow when it comes to Bluetooth, but it's a good phone for anyone who just needs a phone to talk and text with. The camera does get dusty and hard to clean, but it's not the greatest camera compared to newer phones, so who really cares?
The V551 is functional, easy to use, and long lasting, but I personally can't wait to get a new sleeker phone that will fit inside my pocket. :P
