Malfunctionned

while still under warrantee... this phone malfunctionned. The phone would sometimes ring, sometimes not when someone called. I thought it was the network, but it was the phone that wasn't reliable. Would not recommend it.

I like this little light phone, just wish the ringtones were a little louder.

I like it because it isnt heavy and that it isnt a touchscreen because I have had it with full touchscreen and half touchscreen phones. Oh I got mines through Cellular South.

Great Frugal Phone

Have had mine for almost a year and its tough, easy to use with fairly large key pad (a plus for me) Its cheap and I think a great value for the money. I use it for mostly texing and the odd call. very happy to date. It was recommended to me by a csr at Virgin mobile.

Nice

Clean easy operating handset. Camera little weak but perfect phone for me. To the dude who locked out his phone,the password for any phone is usually the last 4 digits of your phone.
