""And the light stays on...""1.0 stars
Pros: Basic no frills phone, attractive menu display
Cons: 1. Status light blinks obnoxiously even when allegedly turned off. 2. Voice dialing only works if you are in same setting where you recorded the name.
Summary: Your editor wrote, "A small blinking LED light sits above the display, but you can turn it off." NOT. There is an option for turning it off, but it has no effect. I got my phone from Credo and sent it back because this "status light" insisted on coming on even when it was turned off, and the replacement does the same thing.
Another problem is that it takes one click more to dial a contact than my old LG1200, which is why the 150's voice dialing feature would seem to be a good thing. However, it is excruciatingly inefficient. I learned the first day that the list of names I had recorded in my house could not be recognized when I said them in my car. So I re-recorded them in the car. Then they could not be recognized anywhere BUT my car. Having the headset on or off also confuses the voice dialing system. If you record a name with the headset on, you can only access it with the headset on, in addition to being in the same acoustical setting. I tried recording full names instead of just first names, thinking the additional syllables would provide more fodder for differentiation, but the feature still gets confused, and can't even tell the difference between a long name and a short one. Say "Rosanne Rosannadanna," for example, and it queries, "Did you mean 'Mom'?" Uh, no.
I have had this phone less than three weeks and I already hate it
