This phone is TERRIBLE! For a temporary phone it is fine, but after about 6 months it will randomly shut off, the screen is terrible and won't hit the buttons you hit (example: press "j" and you might get the letter "d" while texting) Will not hold a charge, very little bilt in memory, and many other problems. This is NOT a long term phone. Worse phone I have owned.

Good and some bad

 This phone is a very good phone, good music player, good apps, good texting and pictures, the downside, it takes a long time to send picture messages and most times does not do it, it just stops,  it has average battery life, it lasts just about a day but functions quite well. I found it annoying that when your making a call and your trying to end it the lengthy bar on the bottom of the screen disappears when you press it and shrinks and then  you press the wrong button every time. It has a VERY small inbox. It cannot support very many messages and i wish they would have increased the phones memory.

Design 7/10
Features 8/10
Performance 6/10
