"Not recommended- i loathe this phone."1.0 starson by lvs4rock
Pros: Excellent battery life
Cons: The CAMERA BUTTON!see 'cons' portion of ottoJax' review. 'Lost' calls and alarms. Delayed and inconsistent response to input from keypad. Ringer volume woefully inadequate impossible to hear when on the road. Can't use old style earplug or headset
Summary: I truly hate this phone, it's been nothing but trouble and frustration since day one. I cant just call someone in my contact list-use keypad to enter a phone number in the list and the phone screen informs me that it's an 'invalid number' while also naming the person the number belongs to. What REALLY infuriates me is that it's inconsistent-some numbers I can direct dial and some not.The overall phone design would be okay if not for that blasted camera button-This design was obviously never given a real-world use simulation. I bought a PHONE w/a camera function, NOT a camera w/ phone-so why is the PHONE the least user friendly and most difficult feature to use? The second, 'outer' screen featured by this model is superfluous-EVERY time I handle the phone I have to open it and 'END' the camera function. I use the alarm function frequently but it could use some 'tweaking'-half the time I'm not given a snooze optiom and a 'quick alarm' feature would be a big plus.I have still more gripes with this phone, but to continue would be pointless. Avoid this phone.
