I've had this phone for 2 years now, and it's performed fabulously. Highlights: incredibly small, a very loud ringer, quite bright screen, excellent battery life, and very good voice quality. Make no mistake, this phone is for one thing only: talking (okay, or texting). The lack of a color screen, camera, any game you want to play, or MP3 capabilities is an asset, in my book. I live in the Boston area and find network quality to be excellent; always a signal. Typically that's the case when I travel as well. This phone isn't for everyone. I purchased it for the pay-as-you-go plan. (I use it relatively little, only spending about $15 every 2 months, on a "20 cents for the first minute, or 10 cents per minute per day that I use 10 minutes or more" plan. I believe Virgin Mobile no longer offers this plan to new subscribers though.) How's Virgin Mobile customer service? My wife's VM phone, a 1-year-old Vox 8610 (still under warranty), just died 2 weeks ago, and after a quick customer service call, Virgin Mobile Fedexed us a new one just 2 days later. Also when I've called with any questions, I've been extremely happy with the attitude of the reps, and their ability to resolve issues. Downsides: the battery did occasionally need to be popped out and put back in when the unit wouldn't start, but that problem has gone away. (Given that the phone was essentially free, this isn't a big problem to me.) The only thing I'd like to be different is for it to have a built-in headset jack. (Also, buying one of the available laptop-to-cellphone-via-USB chargers is a big help.) All in all, it's a sturdy, great little phone. Less

You get what you pay for

Free is free is free. No bells and whistles, just a phone. Lasts well, doesn't seem to break.

Great Value and Clear Signals for the Money

I have had this phone for a year and a half. Initially I bought it as a message phone, but now have switched to it as my main phone. It has a lot of features for the buck: i like the built in flashlight (it's quite bright), ability to call up phone numbers or set answer profiles using voice activiation (a great feature for seniors), the ability to recall numbers just by pushing the send button and using the down arrows. You can also see missed call numbers contrary to what someone wrote below. It even has a built in tape recorder for quick memos. I think it is a very attractive little unit and fits nicely in your pocket. The reception is TERRIFIC! i've had friends remark about how "clear" i sound on it. a great improvement over my old land line even. I also get clear signals and very few dropped signals. I am on the $34.99 a month plan with Virgin Mobile and that's sufficient for my use. I like that there is no contracts required and you can easily switch plans as your needs change or even deactivate for awhile. I did research before I bought this on amazon and liked the reviews. I have been very happy with the phone and virgin mobile. This phone's marketing is geared for young people, i am middle aged so the ringtones and general marketing on the site don't speak to me. however, i was able to get billie holliday singing "i'll be seeing you" as my ringtone. This is a GREAT value for the money. The phone is well made and has a nice feel to it. I often use it on speakerphone and set it down while i do other things. Easy to use features. It can be used either as a main phone or a 2nd phone. Less

Great phone! Beats many fancier phones.

(1) So... it doesn't have a colour screen. Boohoo. Unless you're going to watch movies on it, why would you need a colour screen? It's a *phone*! The benefits of the lcd screen are many, however: the battery lasts more or less forever. Feel free to take it with you on a long weekend without a charger -- it will last. (2) The interface is wonderful in its simplicity and ease of use. Can't compare to Kyocera's mess! Also, when you're sending texts, a lot of text can fit on the screen (compare to Kyocera's measly two lines). (3) It's teeny and light! The market is full of fancy phones whose entire claim to fame is that they're uber-ergonomic. The Shorty is the size of a Sneakers bar for less than 10% of the price of the RAZR. (4) The Virgin plan (which currently offers it FREE with $20 airtime) is perfect for kids (because it's prepaid and contract free, so they won't run up the minutes), college students like me (because the text messaging on Virgin is stupidly cheap!), and older people like my mom (because she only uses it for emergencies). (5) Games. Now, you'd think a basic cheap phone like this won't have anything in the ways of games. In fact, it comes with THREE (and they're not crappy demo versions, either). It's also not something lame like Bowling. You get Nibbles - the queen of all arcade games, a car-racing game and a vertical asteroid-style scroller!! What more can one want for $20??? Less

Good signal, no bells & whistles.

I got this phone to replace a Kyocera K-9 and K-10. The batteries for both of those phones were not lasting even a day with no usage.

I got this phone to replace a Kyocera K-9 and K-10. The batteries for both of those phones were not lasting even a day with no usage. The Nokia Shorty gets a much better signal where the K-9 and K-10 would barely find any signal. Voice quality is better, too. The battery lasts much longer, I can go several days without charging, instead of having to plug-in every night. The Nokia has a very simple interface, and it's easy to use and add contacts, etc. There are a few things I would change if I could, for instance, a "list view" for menus instead of showing one item per page. The ring-tones included with the phone are all targeted to Virgin Mobile's target demographic. There are no ringtones suitable for a business environment, but I almost always have the phone on vibrate only. Less

I got this phone for only $10 after thanksgiving last year, and i think i got my money outta it! It works very nice! Here are teh pros and cons for this phone. Pros: -flashlight -small -amazing battery life -great storage -good games -great menu -and a lot more! cons: -the buttons are hard to press, because they are all in a line -like many other people said, it does turn off about once a month, and all you have to do is take out the battery, then put it back in. The phone is good as new. -there is no camera, but thats not to bad - its a black and white screen, not color But overall, I think this phone is very nice. There are a few problems, but nothing really big that should prevent someone from buying this phone. This year after thanksgiving, a store has the Kyocera Oystr for $10, so I'm getting that. I've read reviews on it and there have been a few problems with battery life, but I'll see when I get it. And I can always return it if its really bad and go back to the shorty. I would stay with the shorty, but i really want a flip phone and color. The Virgin mobile service is great too, I love it. My dad reccomended it to me last year when I got the phone. $20 every 3 months? It doesn't get much better than that! I'll follow up with what happens with the shorty and he oystr after I get it!

I'm an adult, infrequent user. Pros: Small, no antenna, don't have to flip open, sunlight viewable, voice activated dialer, speakerphone, automatic keyguard, calendar, easy texting modes, good value plan at $5/month with carry forward balance, voice clarity and communication is good. Cons: Doesn't show who left a voice message, dropped out and had to remove battery twice to reboot over the past year, sometimes shows a weak but operating signal but won't actually connect. So, it works for me, I'm happy with it. Set up my Mom and father-in-law with this phone also. Less

This phone has gret service, and doesn't break easily. (Trust me, I'd know I've dropped it too many times to count!!!) It has long lasting battery power. I've left it on for an entire weekend without neeeding to charge it. It's the perfect size: Not too small that you can't text, but not too big that it sticks out of your pocket. The only downside to it would be that there is no camera or color. So if your not into a phone for style, just service, then this is an awesome phone for you!!! If you want style, but good quality I suggest a different VirginMobile phone. If your just into looks and nothing else then you might want to try a razr. Less

I have had only one cell-phone model in the past, so I may not be the perfect judge. My previous cell was the Mobile Timeport p8767, with Verizon service. I had all the extras: mutiple antennaes, cases, indoor and auto chargers, PC link and software, link to palmtop computer, extra batteries etc. The Nokia Shorty 2115i is really great. Cost $25 and FREE FEDEX shipping and $25 of call credit was provided. One only needs to TOP UP every 90 days, so it is esentially $7 a month with tax. This $7 can apply to the $0.18 minutes. The features are convenient and intuitive once you run through them a few times. The RADIATION is about 1/2 of what the TimePort produced from a Govt website. Less
