Summary I needed a very basic phone and this one foots the bill very nicely.
Most of the time I use if for talking.
Once in a while I use it for very short text messages (no QWERTY keyboard).
It has other options that I haven't used yet, like 1 digit calling, voice memos, Stopwatch, etc. (as best I can recall).
I might get around to them if I ever have a need to use them, but the vast majority of the time it's talking and the vast minority of the time it's texting.
It's not a flip phone which is one of the reasons I chose it.
Locking the keyboard is a snap. Press and hold the * key to lock the keyboard. Hit the Unlock Button followed by the * button to unlock the keyboard. Don't wait too long between hitting the unlock button and the * button because it's timed. You don't have to rush though. There's enough time to be a little leisurely about it. Just don't have a cup of coffee in between because it will decide that you weren't really serious about unlocking the keyboard and will refuse to honor your request.
It's solid construction. I've dropped it a couple of times with no damage to the phone.
It's slim. I can put it in my pocket and there's no bulge.
I could go on and on but that would be extreme overkill.
It's a nice phone for a very small amount of money.
Bottom Line is I recommend it to anybody who needs nothing more than a basic phone. It does that function very well.
Pros This is the most durable phone I have had. I cannot tell you how many times I have dropped it on our ceramic tile floors and it has never given me an ounce of trouble. I love the slim design. It fits perfect in my back pocket and the keyguard is A+
Cons It does not receive picture messages.
Summary This phone is a great bargain at $15! I have owned it for 6 months and have used and abused it hard with no issues. I would highly recommend it!
Pros Cheap. And slim.
Cons I had TWO of these Jax handsets. The first one stopped receiving calls after 2 weeks. I could make calls but when I received calls, no one could hear me. I returned it and got a replacement. The second phone also had the SAME problem! Unbelievable!
Summary This product is completely useless to receive phone calls and since that is half the job of a basic phone (the other half being to make calls), I would not recommend this product at all.
Pros I found it to be very durable, i dropped it on the ground MANY time and it was always fine, i text message alot on it, and its good for that, i didnt call alot but when i used it it was perfectly fine.its nothing fancy but very reliable, good value
Cons I didnt like how when texting if you go over 160 characters it wouldnt automatically break it up into 2 message, i had to send two separate messages which got annoying
Pros loud volume, thin size, super fast text entry, good battery life, I like the alarm clock feature
Cons inability to turn key sounds off, cheap construction, problems receiving text messages and phone calls, lags, ringer likes to change its settings in my pocket
Summary I have had this phone for several months, as I needed to replace my ancient K10 Royale and my terrible Marbl, and wanted to do so cheaply. I think this phone cost me $15, and I think it performs well for its price. Generally I've been pleased with this phone - the ringer is loud, the phone is super portable, and text entry is near instantaneous, the fastest I've ever used. However, there are several nagging problems that have become apparent the more I've used it. Maybe a week after I got it, I noticed that they keypad had become "mushy", particularly with the down arrow and the top row of numbers. This means that I have to press extra hard. It's to be expected, I suppose, from a cheap phone. Also, when I access my contacts through pressing on the corresponding letter key, there's often a few second lag, which can be annoying. Lately, I've noticed that even when I have the ringtone set to loudest and vibrate, people will call me and my phone will only alert me after the fact, when it tells me that I had a missed call. I might receive a text message hours after it's sent also. It's not too bad for me, because I'm not that concerned about missed calls. If you're anal about your telecommunications, however, I would recommend a more high-end phone.
