Basic phone - The battery from day 1 when it was fully charged as per instructions only lasts a few hours on standby. Nowhere near the 5 days claimed. This is a major problem. Also, when entering text, it is not intuitive. Every time I want a capital letter to appear at the beginning of a word I have to go into the options and keep switching it to "Abc". There is no quick function on the keyboard to do this. I'm thinking of getting a new phone and switching the simm card over. Less
