Pros makes calls, sends text messages, can get online, caller id, polyphonic ringtones
Cons i hate external antennas, id complain about non color screen, but this was when they were relatively new.
Summary this was a great starter phone, this is the first phone i bought in high school with Virgin Mobile. never had an area where service was an issue. and thats saying something in a high school. i went to a 3 story high school. and math on the second floor, in the heart of the building, sending a text message from here was never a problem. i wish i couls say the same for the "can u hear me now" guys. like my Palm Zire 71, this phone also has great battery life.
"It is not "ok""on by Ken_Copper
Pros It is very small compared to most phones and it is very durable.
Cons VERY Short battery life, Doesn't recognize charging and displays "Very low Battery"
Summary I have had this phone for a while now and I really encourage you NOT to buy it. Yes it is compact and durable, but it is expensive, has short range capabilities, no color screen, and has a really short battery life. The phone also wastes energy by actively searching for the network, 100% of the time, when it is out of range. Usually phones will search once or twice a minute.
"Totally Hopeless"on by bbora
Pros Absolutely None
Cons Abysmal reception, no colour
Summary Very poor reeption, poor sound quality, no colour. can't believe they actually sell this.
Pros different colored backgrounds
Cons no color, real ringtones, or loudness
Summary I never had this phone, but Ive known people who have had this phone before.
Of course I wanted to check it out and give an opinion on it just to share here!
Its one of Virgin Mobile's oldest models, so you shouldnt expect too much from this phone! Of course, no color or real ringtones, and of course NO VIRGINXL or voice dialing.
Its a pretty decent phone but without all the fanciness, which I know alot of people would be looking for now-a-days.
So I dont think this phone would be great for many people, but if you want a phone without all the fancy features, then this phone is almost perfect for you.
Pros Peek-a-boo window in the front
Cons In black and white. I love color phones better
Summary I like phones with peek-a-boo windows in the front, that's one of the things that drew me to this particular phone. That and the look. Virgine Mobile always delivers with their brand but you have to remember that you get what you pay for with any product. Spring for one of the newer models if you can, but this one's fine too.
