Pros Full color screen. Good reception. Radio.
Cons Very poorly constructed. Very flimsy design. Very small, hard to use buttons, very low volume.
Summary As stated in the "Cons" section, this phone is a very poor one. I had two of the exact model & within one week the battery cover of one of them had broke, simply from trying to put it back on after it had fallen off for no reason. The buttons are very small and feel as if they are going to fall off when you try to press them. The volume never rises to a decent level. It is such a flimsy, lightweight phone, it feels as if there's nothing inside. This is a very poorly constructed phone. If it had been made with better materials, it could have been a great phone, but since it was made with the cheapest plastic they could find, it is a piece of junk.
Cons voicemail not easily accessible. Goes straight to vm without ringing. Alarm clock rings whenever it feels like (set to 5:15 am - rang at 12:15, 2:15 and 4:15). Can't save phone numbers to SIM card easily.
Summary For a minimally functional phone that is strictly for the purpose of making calls or returning calls - not taking calls- it is almost adequate.

Pros User friendly interface.
Cons Cheap plastic looks, controls and the keypad buttons are poorly designed.
Summary This is a barebones phone made just for calling. I won?t recommend buying this phone simply because there are better handsets around
Pros deceivingly nice, ultra cheap phone, is sold for "free" with the purchase of $10 T-mobile credit during promotional times.
Cons If you are in an area with only 850/1900 bands coverage, you will be OK. I am in Chicago and collar counties and the coverage is horrendous. No coverage in many of the convention areas, dropped calls, no coverage in open spaces, complete DEAD zones.
Summary Skip getting one even if you get paid for having it. I will not want it even as an emergency phone. Good luck if you are in areas that T-Mobile covers ONLY with bands other than 850/1900.
Pros Cheap. Speaking clock very good.
Cons Keys are hard. At 55 cents. Pay phone was cheaper.
Summary Lesson learned: You get what you pay for.
