"Nothing but problems..."1.0 starson by eflat440
Pros: lots of features
Cons: doesn't ring on many incoming calls (gets voicemail notification), powers down while online, no separate ring/alarm volume
Summary: as a consumer, be sure you read ALL reviews of a phone before buying! most of these reviews are very positive, but i've had my FUSIC for 3 weeks and have had many problems with it, so be aware that all have not been so lucky.
1. reception: the phone i got only rings 2 out of every 3 calls...in other words, i'll get a voicemail notice and the phone didn't ring. this has happened with all different carriers incoming. irritating to say the least when my wife calls and says "why didn't you answer your phone, i called you 3 times"...
2. powers down while online: while downloading a web page, it will occasionally power off and back on again...this is mentioned in some reviews below.
3. no separate ringer/alarm volume: this is such a simple concept but the phone does not have it. i've been thru every menu and it does not differentiate. in other words, when ringer is on vibrate, alarm vibrates. ringer off, alarm is silent. i travel for a living and i use my alarm often, but don't want to be awakened by calls. IF YOU USE THE ALARM FUNCTION OFTEN, i would NOT recommend this phone.
4. volume fluctuates: it seems that callers' voices get soft for 20 sec. or so and then return to normal volume. this has happened from different callers with different phones, and thru the handset as well as earpiece.
there are so many good features about this phone (the size, bluetooth, fine mp3 player, EVDO, FM transmitter, etc etc...) but they are overshadowed by the problems stated earlier. i may have gotten a lemon, so keep that in mind, but i know from experience that the more "stuff" a company crams into a little phone, functionality is always compromised. shop carefully, and i hope this helps your decision.
