I got this phone about a year and a half ago and it hasn't failed me yet! I'm in the 7th grade, so it's great as a first-time cell phone! It's small, portable, comes with a pink and silver faceplate, takes great pictures, come with about 10 different ringtones, reception is great, and the ringtone volume is PERFECT. The only problem I found was that the sound that it makes when you take a picture is really loud and annoying, and I don't know how to turn it off. But overall, I DEFINATELY recommend this phone!
