Pros Free "upgrade" from AT&T
Cons SLOW. Poor reception. Drops calls too often to keep count. Not worth the effort to charge.
Pros WHEN I FIRST GOT THIS PHONE I LOVED IT AFTER I GOT USED TO IT THEN THE BAD STUFF CAME...
Cons I HAD SORRY RECEPTION AND IT HARDLY LET ME ON THE INTERNET THEN IT STARTED FREEZING UP I THOUGHT THAT IT MIGHT JUST BE MNE THEN I USED MY MOTHER IN LAWS AND IT WAS THE SAME THING I CANT EVEN CLOSE THE THING WITHOUT IT FREEZING UP THIS PHONE SUCKS....
Pros Good camera, good bluetooth
Cons FM radio requires special headphone cables. Power and data cables become finicky after a few months so it's a crap shot as to whether or not it'll charge. Password saver app gets scrambled by the finicky data cable when phone is used as USB flash disk
Summary You'll need to order chargers and data cables in bulk cause they each fail within a few months of use.
Pros Pro is for $5 a month you get 200 free texts. It's good for those that don't know how to use the smart-phones.
Cons Bad sim card. Even when sim is in place, phone can say sim card NOT insterted. Battery runs out to atleast half. In the beginning it starts off like a good phone but after atleast 6 months it's no longer good. It's too slow to load up. CAmera quality is a
Pros None at all.
Summary My dad had this phone as a free phone for our AT&T family plan. He didn't like it one bit; he found numerous problems with it.
First, the earpiece wasn't loud enough to hear the other calling party, even at full volume. Then we discovered that the phone doesn't ring when there's an incoming call; most of the calls end up in voicemail. And yet another problem, more serious than anything else, is that the signal strength seems to be "locked" in place (i.e. it doesn't change). In a place with no service, it'd indicate that there's no service, but if we took this phone to a place with plenty of service (as indicated on my Samsung smartphone), it would still indicate that there's no service. It would say that until the phone gets rebooted.
Eventually, we took the phone and its included accessories back to AT&T, whose clerk was nice enough to give us another free phone (a Samsung clamshell phone), since it.was within the 30-day trial period. My dad was very satisfied with the new Samsung; it had better reception and the earpiece was much louder.
