Pros It's light. It works for a while.
Cons Besides the fact that the menu is difficult, 5 months into owning this phone it has started acting up and dropping calls without warning. I constantly have to reset it to get it to work. Big waste!
Summary It's cheap, and you'll pay for it later.
Pros Gets the job done, small design, good battery life.
Cons Slow menu system when trying to change menu/phone settings, keypad seems a bit small for someone with large hands.
Summary We bought this phone as a basic phone for calling from our home. It gets the job done without a lot of bells and whistles.
Pros read summary
Cons read summary
Summary if all you really want is a basic phone, a basic phone is what you will get. it is not bad, it offers a camera, and it's for a good price.

Pros this phone doubles as a weapon. it has saved me from certain death twice as its shell is very hard. the other thing i like is that when it allowes you to call, it has good call quality
Cons menus so slow i could take a crap while waiting for them to load. another wierd thing is that after a while, the phone would randomly make a noise like an airplane- i would just be sitting there minding my own buissness and SWoooooooooooOSSSHHHH.
Pros It's relatively small and lightweight, and does, technically, function as a phone. The predictive text software does a good job of remembering new words.
Cons Almost everything. The lag between button presses and the phone's response is maddening. Some software and hardware design choices are negligent at best, misanthropic at worst.
Summary On its best days, this phone is a predictable inconvenience. On its worst, it is torturous.Oh, and the sound quality is terrible.
It's less that the phone freezes occasionally, which it does, than that it's almost impossible to distinguish freezing from the phone's normal operation. I generally leave the phone on without interruption, but on airplanes, I turn it off. When I land, after restarting the phone, it takes anywhere from 7-15 minutes before I can compose or receive texts. When I press "menu," the phone pauses, considering what I might possibly mean. We're not in a restaurant, it thinks. Where can I find a menu? Maybe...take out? OHHH! it realizes, eventually. YOU MEAN /MY/ MENU! Hold on, I'll get that right out for you! Where did I put it? Here, by my collection of unappetizing jellies? Nope, not here. Maybe it's in the fridge, next to the increasingly depressing piles of half-eaten spring rolls in styrofoam boxes? Hmmm. AHA! It was under the bed all along!
The keypad is tiny, and the buttons are easily mashed together. The keys often don't respond, or respond all at once, after a long delay, shooting me forward several menu screens. The back panel of the case only comes off with a hammer, a chisel, and cartoonishly large forearms.
I hate this phone.
