This almost toy like phone from Pantech is definitely worth considering for the casual user. The C3b is light and tiny, but just because it is small on the outside does not mean it lacks on the inside. Pantech provides some big features like Bluetooth support, a VGA camera, good battery life, and a very user friendly menu system. Although it lacks in the multimedia department, I still give Cingular's Pantech C3b a "Recommended" rating for providing solid performance in a low end handset.

nice and small

from Amazon
I like the smallness of the phone, (with everything else that you have to carry or worry about)It is nice not to have to carry a brick around for a phone. I like the buttons covered so you do not accidentally dial. As for the camera, It may not be that good, but I don't buy a phone to take picture...More
I like the smallness of the phone, (with everything else that you have to carry or worry about)It is nice not to have to carry a brick around for a phone. I like the buttons covered so you do not accidentally dial. As for the camera, It may not be that good, but I don't buy a phone to take pictures. The camera-phone is good to add wallpaper or personal moments. The two features I do not like. 1. The on-off button is the call hang up button also. If you hold it too long the phone shuts off. (phone needs a separate on-off button). 2. the center button does not go to a main menu as one would expect, the center but goes to the internet. Phone is too small for that and it takes too long to disconnect. but i give the phone a high 4. If the phone had the camera removed and a separate on-off button. With the added blue tooth. I would give it a 5. Less

Awesome Phone

from eBay
I love the size of the phone. I like the features the phone has to offer. The only thing that I do not like about the phone is the memory size and that it does not have expandable memory. I bought the phone because I had the older version of it(Pantech C300) and I loved my phone...

I really like this phone. The size is perfect. It's tiny, but when it unfolds it's just long enough to be fairly comfortable to talk into. The phone also feels quite sturdy and well-made. There are some very thoughtful features, like the ability to take photos using either LCD screen (as in you can also take photos of yourself). It also lets you easily switch between text-editing modes with a single button, including one just for special characters, making it way easier to add punctuation to your text messages. And the one-button vibrate mode toggle is amazing. It's also so ridiculously cute that I think I actually feel emotions toward it. There are a few downsides, of course. For one, the menus are somewhat confusing. There are alot of ambiguously-labeled menu items under redundant or illogical categories, though if you consult the manual it isn't usually hard to figure them out. Though I still haven't figured out whether there's a setting to make it give continuous "reminder" sounds every so often if there's a message, event or missed call. If that setting doesn't exist, that's pretty annoying. Also, there seems to be something strange and unpredictable about the battery life. I keep finding that the phone has run out of batteries and has been turned off all day, when I thought it had almost a full battery left... But, I generally like this phone. The size and adorable-ness is definitely worth it, as the drawbacks aren't really that serious. Less

I have been using this little phone for several days now and have found it fun and easy to operate. I don't use cell phones for anything but phone calls and for a quick photo once in a while; and this one suits me just fine. The size is amazing! It fits neatly in an area no larger than the palm of my hand--great for a shirt or pant pocket, or a small purse pocket. Though it's light weight it feels solid, not flimsy. It charges quickly, stays charged well, the connections have been good and sound production has been clear. Recomended. Less

Do Not Buy Nor Choose this PIECE OF GARBAGE

It was a BIG Mistake that I picked this piece of junk from AT&T lots of NEGATIVE Stuff I can say: 1st You cannot send pictures that is saved in your file easy, first you have to be online and email the pictures as an attachment, which is already tedious just to go to your email account.

It was a BIG Mistake that I picked this piece of junk from AT&T lots of NEGATIVE Stuff I can say: 1st You cannot send pictures that is saved in your file easy, first you have to be online and email the pictures as an attachment, which is already tedious just to go to your email account. UNLIKE other Cell Phone like Nokia you can send pictures 123, pick picture press "send" it will prompt you to directory with both cell #'s for texting or email address if you want to email them. 2nd DOES NOT WORK with Motorola H350 Headset It will recognized the model but will not work when you want to use them, my buddy tried this Motorola H350 headset in his cell phone it work without a problem. 3rd TEXTING not that easy If you have a private # you have to make duplicate of your directory and delete *82 before the number since it will not work. 4th Clarity is very poor 5th LIMITED storage Can only copy few messages you sent, you have to delete old messages if you want to save text you sent. 6th NOT FRIENDLY USER Unless you read the entire Owner's Manual (which even AT&T Customer Service can't understand) you feel throwing this junk in the window. Pantech tried to be different from Motorola, Nokia and other major cell phone manufacturer. The basic operations SUCKS to the CORE. OVER ALL REVIEW STAY AWAY FROM PANTECH PRODUCTS They are a JOKE!

Pro: size, weight, easy to use, good volume, bluetooth enabled, just an easy pleasing phone to use without any confusing setup issues. so small yet easy to hold against your ear, beats larger flip phones. has a camera flash Con: camera resolution is is only 640 x480 at best. pics are a little grainy but this is to be expected at this low resolution Using experience: 1 months If you want a small flip with no issues than this is the one for you. it may look like a toy but it has the big features the other larger flips have. ring level is great, very loud but can be lowered as well. this is not a music phone, thats why there are ipods out there. you would run down the battery fast any way. i only wish it was a 2 or more mexapixal camera with a better resolution. but what the heck, just use your digital camera.
