Pros Easy to use, and can finally see all the numbers, no bells & whistles
Cons cant think of any
Summary If you need a self portrait mirror- this is not the phone for you! I dont even have a problem with the quick keys being smooth. Very simple- easy to use- am telling all my friends over 50! to buy. If you are younger- tell your parents and grandparents. Finally the phone company listened to my complaints!
Pros Sound (incoming) quality. I didn't buy it to surf the net, or text message, I bought it to make TELEPHONE calls. Its excellent for that. The battery charge is good for several days.
Cons Reviews indicate the camera is not top quality...who cares. I'm not a photographer anyway. I only make phone calls with it.
Summary This "Old Geezer" loves it. Best "cellular telephone" I've had. I also own a nice camera for picture taking, and I have a computer at home for surfing the net. I use the Pantech Breeze for "telephone" calls. Its GREAT.

Pros easy to use large screen large screen simple to use
Cons Software bug att and pantech don't know about
Summary We got this phone for my grandmother (she does not know much about phones and how to use them so she needed something easy to use with a large screen & keys).ok so i was wrong it does the boot loop thing in vibrate mode to but it works fine in normal and vibe and ring mode
So we get the phone( three days ago ) home and im setting it up, i put it in silent mode and when i turn it back on it gets stuck in a boot loop (it showed the standard att boot screen about 6 times, some times less, and some times not even at all before it would finally start). The Phone boot sequence was perfectly fine in normal mode vibe and ring mode and vibrate mode. So the next day i took it to the att store where i bought it from and told them about it and they tried another phone,same problem then they tried a new sim card, no luck there either. So i call pantech and they dont know of this problem either they told me to try another phone(i did already) They Said the only idea they could think of was that it could be the software (i have the software from '09 not '08 and there is no way to downgrade the software) My grandma needs a reliable phone, she wouldn't know how to get out of this boot loop and get frustrated with the phone and if it does this what else could happen down the road???
BE CAREFUL IF GETTING THIS PHONE FOR people who are not, technically advanced or a older person

Pros I'm embarrassed that my initial positive review of this phone on Amazon led to some readers' purchase of it. The phone has worked--but only sporadically. Several times when I've needed it most, the phone would not get me a signal.
Cons 1. The 3 "easy" buttons are fussy, temperamental and frequently inoperative.
2. The directions are not written in clear English.
3. The gadgetry is excessive, and it's easy to ring up numerous unintended charges for frivolous features not ordered.
Summary A fussy, intricate, undependable phone that probably belongs in no user's hands, let alone a senior's. Of all cellular phones I've used (about six), this was by far the most unsatisfying experience. I'm mortified that I was initially seduced by what "appeared" to be an easy, intriguing phone, with more features yet just as easy to use as the Jitterbug. Stay away!
"NOT user friendly!"on by DHXK3G
Pros You can throw it at someone to hurt them.
Cons Bad keypad (for the black phone...you don't make the white one anymore), Bad photo management, bad bluetooth management, poor user interface, poor user manual, poor quick reference guide, not the best deal from ATT retail store, no memory chip port.
Summary Black keypad - Call and End buttons are unreadable - even by me - and I'VE GOT 20/20 VISION! This is not the case on your white (discontinued) phone...HOW IS THIS SENIOR USER FRIENDLY???
It is VERY difficult/impossible to add photos for contacts - IF THE PHOTOS ARE NOT TAKEN BY YOUR PHONE. If you take the pic in portrait orientation, it's stretched (making people look fat) when attached to a contact. If you take the pic landscape, it appears sideways when attached to a contact. There's NO WAY to rotate the pic! I've tried any number of ways getting the pic off the camera, fixing in PhotoShop and getting it back to the phone, only - - - it GOES TO GRAPHICS, NOT PICTURES!!! The phone won't allow you to use a graphic for contacts, so transferring pics to the phone is useless!
Using Bluetooth to transfer contacts - only transmits limited info: No first name, no mapping of more than one email address, no birthdate field, and no mapping of home address. There is also no ability to put more than one Home number, Cell number, and Office number. With the proliferation of phones these days, HOW CAN YOU NOT ALLOW FOR MORE THAN ONE TYPE OF PHONE??? UNBELIEVEABLE!!!!! You market this as a great phone for seniors. HOW SO??? I just copied all my contact's info onto my 78 year-old mother's phone, and NOW I have to go back in, and edit EVERYTHING YOU LEFT OUT!!! I've got to buy a PC cable to see if I can get access to the photo folder, to add pictures THAT MY MOTHER CAN SEE RIGHT SIDE UP!!! You've got no compatibility with an SD card, which I could have used on my Dell to add the photos. Your "Quick Reference Card" is WRONG, which made me have to use the more complete User Manual to set the phone up, AND YOU'VE GOT NO INDEX TO FOLLOW, SO YOU HAVE TO RE-READ THE ENTIRE MANUAL TO SEE IF YOUR TOPIC IS LISTED!!!
For guys listing the phone as senior compatible, you sure have a strange way of showing it...
