This is an all-round reliable phone in spite of its size (seal club). Reception is good, battery life is good, keys are large enough for easy use (especially good for people with large hands or poor eyesight). True, it lacks the features that many of today''s phones have but personally, I can do without most of them. All in all, a good reliable phone though a little heavy. Less
