Summary: I purchased the device for my use as a phone that I'd use for trips. I barely had the phone for 2 weeks, and the phone crapped out on me. I REALLY love Samsung electronics (why I have a Samsung device at the moment) but phone's SHOULD be engineered to last a 2 year commitment (not 2 weeks)The LG Revere is tons better then this device, if you're looking for reliability, this is where i'd go
Ok, so since I have a smartphone, I WAS going to use this phone for trips as I mentioned, so that nothing happened to my current phone. well, if your going to go on scenic trips, you'd probably want to use a camera, wouldn't you. You see, I have a digital camera, yes, but I use it for video, I don't use it to lug around and take pictures of stuff, I want a convenient little pocket sized camera that can be used as a phone, and maybe a few more little features, but the camera on this thing would NEVER START. It would either say something about DEVICE CAMERA ERROR, or Camera error. One time it did open, but the resolution was crappy. I convinced Verizon that this phone was basically BROKEN and they offered to send me another Gusto, and I thought, OK, fine, maybe it will function better, well, I had it fixed my camera issue, but now came down to a newer issue. 2,3,6 and 9 keys switched positions nearly every time I had to dial a number, so you were left pressing keys repeatedly until you knew what key was assigned to which button, AND thank goodness for Backup Assistant, as that helped for the numbers I didn't have saved. I took it back to the store I had gotten it from (Verizon) and since I was in my 15 day return period, they let me choose an LG COSMOS 2 which so far I'm loving. I tried to go simple, but this phone really could only compare to a car phone, that bad of a phone. If you want a simple phone, go with the LG Revere, the Accolade (I ONCE HAD) and the Gusto, are not worth your time!
