If it were possible to give a rating of zero, I would definitely rate it ZERO.

from Amazon
A rating in the NEGATIVE 100, NEGATIVE 110 range would be more appropriate for this phone. I've had this phone for about a year and a half - my husband has one also.

A rating in the NEGATIVE 100, NEGATIVE 110 range would be more appropriate for this phone. I've had this phone for about a year and a half - my husband has one also. We selected this phone because it was cheap and our needs are simple. We wanted a reliable phone - no camera, no bells, no whistles. We could not have made a worse choice. The phone will work on occasion, then will spontaneously shut off, go blank, or give me some error message - "Insert SIM Card" - when the card has never been removed. My husband's phone is the same way, so I know that it is not just a lemon that I have. As a matter of fact, we previously had two others (same model) that we exchanged because they were also garbage. Same problems on those also. We wrongly attributed it to the service. I STRONGLY RECOMMEND YOU BUY ANYTHING BUT THIS PHONE!!!! Less

pretty crapy

this thing blows. i hate it and ive had it for 1 minuete

best phone ever

I have had this phone for two years now. It's the best phone ever. It simple to use/understand, reception is awsome, it is has a loud ring which is great. Durable,great battery life is excellent even after two years of 24/7 use. Charge it up every two three days after multiple long calls.I really like this phone. I highly recomend it.

Good Phone

Small Light and average battery life. Have had it 8 months and contrary to what most reviews here say I've had no dropped calls. Maybe you should check your carrier. Doens't have any of the luxeries, just a basic phone that works well

The durability of this phone is what inspired me to write a review. I have dropped this thing more times than what's reasonable, and it takes no damage. Just two days ago, I accidentally slammed into a desk when I had this thing in my pocket and I when I took it out, the top had become separated from the rest of it. It's in two pieces (being held together by duct tape) and it's still making calls and carrying on as if I had just not destroyed part of its casing. I can't possibly understand the bad reviews for this cellphone; it CAN'T be destroyed, the battery is decent (after 2 years of use I can still get about 2 days of regular use before it needs to be recharged...better than what I can say about a lot of the more recent phones), the call clarity if solid, and above all it's easy to use. I paid $160 for this thing two years ago, and I think I've gotten every cent out of it so far (even though it's in two pieces, I'm not going to stop using it). I have no doubt this little phone will serve me reliably for AT LEAST another two years. Less

phone is okay for what it is, a phone. nowadays, even "free" phones have at least a dinky digicam that takes crappy pictures. this doesn't have it. forget any other options you may think it has or doesn't. cause it doesn't. battery life was short to begin with from day one. currently after about 8mo. of use, i have to charge it at least every other day. this is even worse than the treo 600 i had previously and i did a hellova lot more w/ that than i'll ever do with this. reception was so-so, nothing stellar. this is good as an interim phone before you upgrade to another. and you will upgrade to another.

Pro: Small and light weight Con: Short Battery Life, Bad Reception, Dropped Calls, Fuzziness, Unable To Hear Call or be Heard This is the worse phone I have ever had in my life. I had the phone for few months and anything that could mess up did. Not only was the first phone bad I goy a replacement and that was worse.This when the battery begin to go dead after 2 phone calls, i had dropped calls, fuzziness, my phone cut off and on by itself, the screen went black, i could not hear people talking or they could not hear me, and they the company does not want to replace it, and after all that when i was closing it the phone broke on one side wher it flips shut. Just broke off. THIS PHONE IS CRAP DO NOT BUY PEOPLE!!! Less

GO LG

I've had my phone for about 3-4 years, (didn't use it for one of those years, but still have the original battery, very dependable, sturdy, and stable. I think it's part TIMEX. LOL Very good quality, long lasting battery life with voice & standby modes.

Random Dropped signal and calls

from Amazon
This crazy phone will frequently go from full-scale signal to dropping a call while standing in one place. When it happens, the screen goes blank and there is a 20-30 sec delay as it figures out where it is and gets a signal back. Meanwhile you've lost a call. Could be at the beginning of a call or any...More
This crazy phone will frequently go from full-scale signal to dropping a call while standing in one place. When it happens, the screen goes blank and there is a 20-30 sec delay as it figures out where it is and gets a signal back. Meanwhile you've lost a call. Could be at the beginning of a call or anytime thereafter. Also will give random errors when looking up a number from the contacts list. Frequently comes back with 'error reading smart chip'. Usually have to shut it off and 'reboot'. It is basically a piece of junk. Less

Pro: Battery life, durability Con: none I have had this phone for almost 2 years and I still love it. I can have this phone on standby for almost a week. Also when the low battery alarm starts to beep, I can still get almost an hour of talk time out of it. It is also very durable, there has been plenty of times I have been upset and thrown it across my apartment and it still works like a champ. The other little things that I love are the fact you can switch between speaker and regular while you are on the phone (my new LG doesn't let me do that), and the fact that everything is nice and simple to find. It may not have all the fancy features of the new phones, but I still love it. I have purchased 2 replacement phones for this and I always return them and go back to this. Less
