Pantech Breeze II P2000 Review
Callers were generally pleased by the voice quality on the Breeze II as it was normal sounding with little to no distortion. On our end, the experience was unchanged from what our callers heard, but we would've liked to hear some louder tones on both ends.

We were thoroughly impressed with battery life on the phone as we were able to achieve a talk time of 5.5 hours when the manufacturer has it rated for 3.0 hours for talk and 240 hours of standby time.

Compared to other AT&T phones, the Pantech Breeze II was able to retain good connection to the network with no drop calls experienced in the greater Philadelphia area.


Conclusion:

If you're looking for a phone that passes by as being just a phone, then the Pantech Breeze II should prove to be a decent solution for you. However, we were surprised to see how much depth the phone has when it comes to features and performance. But at the same time with its option for the “Breeze Mode,” it takes the pain out of getting too bogged down for those who aren't necessarily up to speed with the modern conveniences of most phones. Even though its design might not be one of its strong points, it will definitely appeal to the older population as it fits perfectly to that demographic. All in all, the Pantech Breeze II offers a surprising experience underneath its ordinary looking shell – and it's inexpensively priced as well.

The Pantech isn't a bad phone, by no means, but I wish AT&T would go for some feature phones instead of going all SmartPhones...as it seems to be doing at present. Not everyone wants a SmartPhone. There are some who still want a feature phone. This Pantech is boring, though, in design. They should have given it a 2MP cam at least. I'm sure it will do well for the most undemanding out there. Peace!

This phone is the biggest piece of junk ever sold by At&t and after 3 months of having two of the phones the have had sim cards changed, batteries changed and it still drops calls, says emergency use only, extremely poor quality sound when talking that is IF you can even get the call to go through on the phone at all. DONT WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THIS CRAP!!!

I am on my second of these phones (warranty), and both have the same problem __ garbled reception, then dropped call. Happens within seconds or minutes into a call (either out or in), and no relief is offered by AT&T other than to give me another (which won't work either.) Have spent many hours with Service, all to no avail. Don't buy this phone!

Pretty much, this phone sucks.

The radio is very poor, it drops connections a lot when other phones show strong signals, and doesn't reconnect when back in range. You have to power cycle it to get it back to work.

Also, when it is working (only about 70% of the time,) the audio is unintelligible. 50% of the words are simply missing in both directions (talking and listening.)

I have been through a LOT of phones, several Nokias, Samsungs, Motorolas, and now this Pantech piece of crap.

Clearly, (pun intended) this is the worst of the bunch.

As far as functionality, I rate manufacturers, Nokia the best (most reliable, and most clear) Motorola next, Samsung third, and Pantech worst.

Features and comfort MUST come second to usability. If it feels good in your hand, but doesn't do the job that was intended, it belongs at the bottom of the trash heap.

Just my 2 cents (adjusted for inflation, economy, and political corruption, more like $20.)

Mark.

Upon receiving a call on the pantech p2000 but before opening, pressing both external buttons (normally sound level) will end the call. This is very troublesome when fishing the phone out of a pocket. Does anyone know a way to turn this off??? The manual has very little real info about many features.
