Simple; reliable.

It's been nearly seven years since I last owned this phone. Since then I've owned several other phones, and yet I've just purchased this phone again, even though it has no fancy features that are the norm for today's cell phones. Since then I've mostly stuck with simple phones, but once I  jumped on the bandwagon for a short period of time, owning an LG Venus with a touchscreen. Worst phone I've ever had. Even after I got used to the touchscreen, it was still more difficult to use than buttons, not to mention that it constantly looked filthy with fingerprints. Sure, today's phones take decent pictures, keep you up to date on Facebook, let you download music and stream videos. But if you're like me, you don't need all that. You don't have to be "connected" constantly and maybe, just maybe, you actually enjoy your time away from the madness!I don't want my phone to be a camera, MP3 player, and computer. I have all those things already and I take them with me when I need them. In a phone I just want something simple, reliable, and compact. And this phone fits the bill! It makes/receives calls and sends/receives text messages. And even has that nifty blue backlight. Wow! Never had any problems with this phone and don't foresee any problems to come. It's difficult to find one of these now in new condition, but you can find them in excellent used condition. Very good, SIMPLE cell phone for those who don't want all the bells and whistles of today's cell phones....  


  • simple, reliable, compact, durable, strong backlight


  • battery could last longer, but the same could be said for all cell phones
