Worst Phone ever
Phone owned for more than a year

This is the worst phone ever. I drop calls 20 times a day, the battery needs to be recharged after 40 minutes worth of use, and the sound.quality is not much better than Skype. According to Metro's coverage Map I should have good service but it sucks. Both Metro and Nokia will not stand behind this phone. I will never buy a Nokia phone or use the Metropcs service again.

I Hate This Phone!
Phone owned for

1. Dropped calls
2. Dropped calls
3. Dropped calls
4. OFTEN, (and not having it set to 'silent' or vibrate only) the phone doesn't ring at all but will sound an alert for a message seconds after it was left.
5. Changing Profiles takes 5 presses (plus navigation) even though I have set it with Profiles at the top of the settings list.
6. Alarm doesn't go off or goes off at some unspecified time.
7. When alarm goes off the screen flashes on and off so I can never clearly see where to press for Snooze or Off. There is no option to change the flashing.
8. I don't have large hands but the buttons are so small I often make errors.
9. Poor User Guide-All I wanted to look for was info on Timed Profiles and it's not even listed.
10. Call log fails to report many Missed/Received/Dialed Calls
11. There are so many icons on the small screen they keep the time from being displayed. If there is an option to keep certain icons from showing on the screen, I can't find it.
12. When entering a phone number, a hyphen isn't automatically inserted. It's a pain in the *** to insert one (especially when entering a few at at time) so the numbers run together making it harder to read them when you need to.

Dropped calls, low volume, texts arriving 30-45 minutes later, turns on and off by itself, NOTHING positive to say about this little phone - DO NOT BUY. Gets so heated when re-charging, God only knows how many grey cells this phone has killed when I have tried to use it! POOR quality, NOKIA really blew it on this phone.
