It's a cheap, average cell phone for MetroPCS. It's got a nice big screen and a decent MP3 player, but reception is poor and call quality is just average.

PC Magazine

The ZTE Agent's trouble with making phone calls outweighs its generally good multimedia performance

from PC Magazine
Unlike other, more secretive agents, the ZTE Agent lays all its cards on the table: It's a cheap, average cell phone for MetroPCS. It's got a nice big screen and a decent MP3 player, but reception is poor and call quality is just average. It isn't the worst choice for users that want to take advantage of unlimited talk and texts for $40 per month, but there are better options out there for the same price... Full review
Cnet

Saddled with poor call quality, there's very little to recommend this entry-level device

from Cnet
We haven't seen a ZTE cell phone for MetroPCS for some time, and the last phone that the Chinese manufacturer produced was the Salute, a vertical slider for Verizon. The ZTE Agent returns ZTE to its U.S. roots, making entry-level cell phones meant for talking, with a few additional features. As a prepaid phone, the Agent is fairly priced at $69; however, the design, features, and call quality all leave much to be desired... Full review

Darn, there are no reviews yet for this phone.
