Love it

I have had my phone for over two years and never once had a problem. It has been dropped (repeatedly) and works just like it did the first day. I live in Canada and have travelled all over the country and the States and never had reception issues at all. My friend also has this phone and drove over his with a quad and it was fine!

Suckish

I've had this phone for not even two years, and the screen and all of the buttons has already stopped working. I don't even use it that much. I hate this phone. Worst investment I've ever made. I can never hear when people call me, and the front scratches really easily. The battery doesn't work any more, and I don't like it.

The Phones JUNK!

The phones nice, but everything about it is not! I signed on for a 3 year contact. 2 1/2 years later it doesn't work. It does not hold batterie, and they WILL not allow me to exchange only buy a new phone and they will switch my personnal information onto it. It's that fair huh? Don't ever purchase th...More

It does not hold batterie, and they WILL not allow me to exchange only buy a new phone and they will switch my personnal information onto it. It's that fair huh? Don't ever purchase this phone. It will be your biggest mistake. I loose all calls. Horrible reception and i can charge it for 3 full days. As soon as 1 call comes in it dyes! Worst mitake in my part. Telsus....mix your deals please. I'm paying for a phone that is crappy, and shouldn't it be your job to satisfy your customers??? I'd think so.....So why am i paying for nothing. the $49.99 refurbished phone should be mine FREE! Less

Not So Good

This phone is not so good, I find it hard to hear people talking to me on it. The camera sucks so much its blurry and if you dont hold it steady it will turn out horrible. It had called people randomly and has a hard time starting up takes a long time.

Got this Phone For Free, I Want My Money Back

I got this lump 6 months ago, and i'm trading it in for a different one. It has a firmware issue in which there is a timer on the phone to reset the date. If the timer runs out, the phone decides that it won't tell me if i have text or voice messages. I must turn the phone off and back on once a day t...More
I got this lump 6 months ago, and i'm trading it in for a different one. It has a firmware issue in which there is a timer on the phone to reset the date. If the timer runs out, the phone decides that it won't tell me if i have text or voice messages. I must turn the phone off and back on once a day to make sure people can stay in touch with me. my last five phones stayed on 24 hours a day, and seven days a week. never a problem. nice design, though the menus need serious help. nice if you don't need a decent camera, or text messages. I hate this thing. Less

Excellent Phone

I spend a lot of time in arenas (surrounded by cement). This is the ONLY phone that provides excellent reception. Sound is great, picture taking is great - i love it

It's decent.. I guess.

My mom and dad both have this phone, and I personally think it sucks out loud. I use my mom's more than they both use theirs together. I find that the lack of color to the front LCD display is horrendous, and there is lack of orderliness to the navigation and settings. You can't chose a wallpaper from...More
My mom and dad both have this phone, and I personally think it sucks out loud. I use my mom's more than they both use theirs together. I find that the lack of color to the front LCD display is horrendous, and there is lack of orderliness to the navigation and settings. You can't chose a wallpaper from the image clips from the Settings section, you have to go to the Photo Album area in 'DoMore'. It would be nice if it had more features for the sound, perhaps something so the music doesn't sound so scratchy? Less

Good Phone

I like this Cell Phone alot it has all the fetures I want the only thing I'm not to crasy about is when I'm talking to someone, sometimes it's not loud enough and sometimes it's to loud.

P.O.S.

This phone sucks out-loud. The reception sucks bad. I get 1 call that works for every two that are dropped. I exchanged the phone for another one thinking maybe the unit was faulty but no luck. I think I'll go back to the old phone I had before. Stay away from it.

If your phone isn't your life...

If your phone isn't your life, this phone is great!

If your phone isn't your life, this phone is great! It has none of the cool features such as bluetooth, mp3 players or a great camera, but it does have a low quality camera and takes video with sound. I purchased my phone for $179 without contract which was on the cheap side for Telus phones, but it was exactly what I was looking for. It's easy to navigate the menus (especially since I had an older LG model beforehand) and the reception is decent for where I live (urban area). I just hope this phone lasts me for more than 2 years. In the last 5 years, I have gone through 3 phones, not by choice, but because of damaged phones and an expired warrenty. I'll cross my fingers! Less
