Great Pre-Paid Phone

Dee has owned it for less than 3 months before publishing this review

I've had a few pre-paid phones when I first starting using cell phones years ago. The last few have been under contract. I had trouble getting it connected to the internet at first but once I did, it was fine except it is slow. Battery charges fast. Love the slide out QWERTY keyboard. Volume and sound is better than previous phones I've owned.

Build quality 8/10 Back cover can easily fall off.
Reception 9/10 Reception is better than my old phone.
Call quality 9/10
Internet 4/10 Slow
Multimedia 8/10
Camera 10/10
UI speed 7/10
Everyday usage 10/10
Text input 10/10 I love the QWERTY slide out keyboard.
Display 10/10
Battery 10/10


  • Long battery life, easy to use, charges fast


  • I can go into another part of the menu like the calender or contacts while talking.

Great phone if your only texting and making calls!

Works great over all, but does NOT work with In Car Blue tooth Adapters!!! pioneers (cd-btb200) to be exact! Battery life is Great... Spends little time on charger, but when it is on there it charges fast! Great for people who want to use it as a mp3 player!

I like it I don't love it though.

MSTechjunkie has owned it for less than 3 months before publishing this review

Overall its not a bad phone for a pre-paid style phone, but if you want apps and games (other that what it comes with) there very few and far between, and if you want social net working sites ie; facebook, myspace, twitter ect it has a built in browser and they do work however due the lack of 3g connectivity its frustratingly slow, and for as for messaging the back sliding keyboard makes texting a breeze. MMS's are a different story slightly confusing to create at first and your limited to 300kb in size and due to the slow data rate they take a long time to actually send (and receive). Overall though its a well built phone it gets better reception than some much more expensive phones and if all you going to do is make phone calls and text this phone will work well for you.
