For the price of a fat bar tip you can now own a mobile phone that does what a mobile phone is supposed to do without the bells and whistels. You get the basic sms modes, settings, basic address book, some games and whatever else you would expect with a mobile phone that comes free with a packet of cornflakes. The battery lasts about a day if you do not use it much. To be honest 10 sms and 1 10 minute call and this phone is gasping for electricity. However it does what a mobile phone should do for a next to nothing price. If you do not use mobile phones this is one to get. Less
Plus-battery life Negatives- everything else, i couldn't get a signal indoors, anywere, poor voice quality, and I don't think I ever had a full signal even next to the tower.
