In my area, the Salt Lake Valley, the call quality on this phone is quite good.

man, this review is so freaking pathetic? you are reviewing this phone as if it is expected to do good browsing music and stuff... the words that you have used, just pathetic... and call quality from this phone is much much better than many other basic phones i have used... the problem is with you and your area.. not the freaking phone... come on!

Wow, your review is completely flawed; although the phone does suffer from lack of memory, micro usb expandable memory and video, the phone as an entry level device is excellent. It has a rubberized front case which adds to the grip, external id with date and time, a camera, very easy to dial keypad and the phone call quality is the best I've experienced, loud and clear. For $20 as a non-contract phone, this review is flawed to say the least. I have paid close to $80 for 2 year contract on a Sony Ericsson that sucked on every aspect, no tactile keypad, horrible phone call quality, dropped calls, low volume, hard to open and bulky, and slippery exterior, yet the only good thing it had was a micro usb expansion slot and it played video.

Pros: Cost Cons: No ability to sync anything with your PC unless you have a BT device installed. Sound quality is mediocre at best. Other than for charging the phone I'm not sure why they included a data cable. Camera is okay quality but heaven help you if you actually want to TRANSFER your photos to your computer via USB cable. No Contact sync either. I can get MP3s to the phone by sending them via email as an attachment, but you need to be careful as was mentioned you run out of available memory very quickly.
