Pros Good battery life
Good build quality
Good feature set
Good call quality
Great Nokia T9 texting
Cons Slow OS (main major beef)
Crappy camera (doesn't apply much to me)
Crappy placement of crappy camera
Inability to assign "messaging" as a shortcut - what??
Lower than idea resolution on main LCD (oh well)
No MP3 capability (and no 3.5mm jack)
Summary Bottom-line: I paid $20 for this phone (turns out it was $5-10 too much, but oh well), and for what I paid it's perfectly adequate. I oscillate between high-end phones and super cheap ones, and I always come back to super cheap because I never use half the features on the high-end ones I expect to. I put my SIM card in, had all my contacts and it was ready to go. (Speaking of SIM cards, CDMA - still around? Really?) I don't regret buying this phone. If I get tired of it I can hock it on CL and buy something else. If I destroy it (I'm really fastidious, so that's not likely), then I can replace it and not break the bank. Utility is key in a mobile phone for me ... today, anyway.
Pros 10 bucks through At&t, probably the best battery life of any phone I ever owned, decent pictures, metal plated keys, perfect size buttons for texting. Easy to use. very light (guess its a pro).
Cons Same material almost everything is made out of these days. if you own a newer ds, a wii, a ps3, ect it is that flimsy shiny plastic material. It shows finger prints, but really this isn't a con, wipe it off and move on.
Summary Reviewer before me was complaining about so ridiculous stuff. It may be the fact that it is from t mobile, so if thats the case know that my review is through At&t. Ive taken about 14 pictures and memory in not full. its 32 mb how would 2 pictures fill that. "keypad is too flat. can't tell what key you're pressing sometimes." how these two things interfere with each other is beyond me. I haven't dropped the phone. So sry i cant say its drop proof, but its sturdy. The keypad has dividers between the buttons to make it very easy to find the button your looking for. He was complaining that it wasn't as good as his old, phone that was probably more expensive and had a bunch of useless features. This phone does what it advertises and does it extremely well. I highly recommend this phone for anyone looking for a low priced phone.
Pros Very easy to use, good features, pretty durable.
Cons Not enough memory @ all. I had 5 pichures, 3 partcial songs as ringtones(cuz thats all it would let me save) & maybe at the MOST 10 text & it's telling me I need to free up memory!
Pros Nice looking, lightweight, good call quality, good camera, bluetooth, good keyboard, big clock on external display, great battery life
Cons Poor speakerphone quality, email tedious to access, in-call speaker volume adjustment is awkward
Summary I bought a refurbed model on eBay, which only cost me $19.99. For that price and no additional contract commitment, and in consideration of the many positives and few negatives, this phone suits my needs well. You can spend a lot more and get a bigger screen and probably better sound, but if you need a well-featured inexpensive phone, this one is hard to beat. Opened, the phone is tall, putting the ear piece at my ear, and the microphone close to my mouth. If you've used AT&T phones before, the menu interface is familiar and getting acquainted with the controls is pretty simple.
Pros A good bare-bones phone, with viirtually no memory capabilities. Now available from AT&T new for $9.99 or $7.99 reman. Can be bought for those prices as a "GO prepaid phone" withouot buying any time. The can be used momth-to-month W/O contract.
Cons No memory capabilities. Speaker phone somewhat weak and can only be engaged AFTER call is initiated.
Summary For $7.99 or $9.99 new, just like finding one! Sucker deal? Can be initiated as a contract phone for "free", then be subject to a $150.00 early termination fee. For that. you can buy 15 phones (same phone, on 'prepaid' plan).Can be purchased on the prepaid plan without any minutes on the $.25 per minute plan=no obligation, $9.99 new phone. Then can be put on a month-to-month plan with NO CONTRACT! Sweet deal.
