"battery life is bad, not a reliable phone"1.5 starson by Jake232
Pros: it's nice being able to use your own pics for the caller ID, and the speaker phone button is in a nice place
Cons: battery life is not very long, and it freezes up sometimes
Summary: The camera takes bad blurry pictures, and when you use it, it takes up a lot of your battery. I don't know if it was just my phone but when I bougt real music ringtones they sounded really bad and muffled. I had to charge my phone every other day, and I don't even use it a lot. When I would scroll through my phone book, or through anything it would freeze up for a couple seconds. After it was charged it wouldn't work so I would have to restart it, sometimes it did that w/o even charging it. Mine didn't get very good service either.
I now have the Fusic, which is working out great, but I have only had it a week. I have only charged it once when I got it and it still has 3 of the 4 cells left on it, and I have used the MP3 player and phone, so the battery life is great. The speakerphone is loud and clear to, as well as the ringtones.Updated
When I got my new phone that I have now, I had 3 new voicemessages that I never got on the PM-225. They were from 2 weeks before.
The way the camera is set up, there is a button on the outside of the phone that is real sensetive, so you end up taking pics in your pocket w/o knowing it, which wastes EVEN more of your battery.
Don't beleive what the phone displays about it's battery life, it can have a full bar when you open it, but once you make a call and are on the phone for ONE MINUTE, it will beep once, then 2 seconds later will shut-off and die. That happened to me countless times, so I wasn't able to tell who I was talking to that my phone was dying.
I think that covers it, there may be more..Bottom line though...DO NOT GET THIS PHONE!
