Phonedog

This is a good phone

from Phonedog
Pro: Camera phone, nice colors, durable and good quality Con: Ring tones not loud enough, cant hear well in ear piece Using experience: 3 months I would recommend this phone if you like to take pics and send them, it is a good quality phone, I wouldn't it if your hard of hearing

I've owned this phone for 2.5 years now, had some trouble with it, but haven't gotten it to break yet. Dropped it off the 1st floor, dropped it into a puddle, dropped it god knows how many times onto concrete pavement, literally abused the phone, and the only problem that i have had with it was that the software needed to be updated (for free I must add). Otherwise this is an amazing phone, and it truly ruined on my dream of wrecking this phone and moving on to the next one. Less

I Love This Phone

I have had this phone for two years now. I have dropped it, accidently left it on the hood of my car while peeling out, stepped on it, and done worse. I have a few scratches and everything works splendedly. I love this phone so much I passed up my two year upgrade to keep it.

Discontinued for a reason

I got this phone recently after it came out, and honestly it was top notch at that time. It had great reception and the camera was one of the better ones at that time. Since then, the phone still works... somewhat. Besides for the fact that the phone constantly turns off on its own, cuts off calls, and...More
I got this phone recently after it came out, and honestly it was top notch at that time. It had great reception and the camera was one of the better ones at that time. Since then, the phone still works... somewhat. Besides for the fact that the phone constantly turns off on its own, cuts off calls, and scratches easily (front screen cracked in my pocket by hitting my keys) this phone has simply been outdated. It only got worse over time which is why it was discontinued. I would recommend going with a newer phone, personally I''m going to try the V710, the Audiovox has proven to be unreliable after normal usage. Less

solid phone

solid phone, great and usefull features, not many problems, great reception, decent camera, very simple and easy to use

Worst phone I''ve ever owned!

This phone is horrible. It has a terrible echo, drops calls, battery life is pathetic, reception is inconsistent. I would never buy this or any other Audiovox after owning this phone.

Nicest phone I ahve owned.

Have owned this phone for over a year now. I have dropped this phone several times and not had any problems. Camera is not great, Speaker phone is not great, but.... I can upload my own ring tones that I create and wallpaper for free. Sound is really good. They have discontinued this phone. It''s still a good phone. No problems.

Holds up under pressure

I''ve dropped this phone, I''ve even dropped it in water and it''s still going strong. Nothing broke on it yet. Camera is decent quality considering the generation it is.

DISAPPOINTMENT

I bought this phone back in April ''04. It has been nothing but a headache. I''ve had the battery replaced and the charger that they gave me was not the proper one. I''ve had to use that since. My warranty recently expired and they won''t due nothing. A law suit may be on the way. I bought something that was DEFECTIVE.
