The Most Indestructible Phone Ever Offered

Pro: This phone is like the Terminator-knock it down and it keeps on!! Great battery life. Con: Limited features Using experience: 3 years I never have reviewed any cell phones but I feel obligated with the partying of ways with my all-time favorite. I had this phone for about 3 years and never had any failures or breakdowns.It is a basic phone and can be called the "Honda Civic" of cell phones. I am always on the go and have my phone in front pockets, on top of cars,even in grocery bags. Consequently I dropped my 2125i probably well over a 1000 times.The last year when it was dropped it broke into faceplate, battery, and the rubber key platform. I'd put it back together and its back to business. Here is the incredible testimonial. The other day it fell out of my front pocket while I was getting into my Nissan Maxima. I overlooked this and ran over the phone. Well that killed it! Not really. It would still power up and receive and make calls. I had to retire it because the front display window glass got a purple splotch and blocked the viewing of info. I would love to have another one of these again. Best cell ever built!! Less

Pro: Dropped in Toilet, it still works Small Nice looking Dropped in toilet, once again, and still works like new Indestructible Con: none Using experience: 28 days I had a friend who had this phone for some time. I've had the Chocolate phone but the last time (and first time) i dropped it, it smashed. This phone was used at bush parties in the sand as a football and soccerball repeatedly. Thrown against walls, still works. Thrown against trees, still works. It is the greatest possible phone i'd ever seen, so i bought one and wow. This phone, for the price, is possibly the greatest deal of the century. It never breaks, even in water, never short circuited. Never got wet inside. Screen is clear, bright and vivid, and the phone itself is stylish, albeit small. I give it a perfect score. If you are buying any phone besides this one, you're making a HORRIBLE decision. Less

My nokia

from Phonedog
Pro: Does very well considering Vermont has so many dead spots Con: None it is the best one I have had Using experience: 2 years I have owned numerous cell phones but find that this one does a good job in such a dead area.

Great phone, funny smell.

It sounds ridiculous, but I've had this phone replaced two times already due to its strange smell. Whatever type of plastic the keypad is made of has a strange smell (somewhere between pine tree, mango, and cat spray). This doesn't sound like a big deal, but when it heats up, it gets much, much worse...More
It sounds ridiculous, but I've had this phone replaced two times already due to its strange smell. Whatever type of plastic the keypad is made of has a strange smell (somewhere between pine tree, mango, and cat spray). This doesn't sound like a big deal, but when it heats up, it gets much, much worse and it's right there under your nose while you talk on it! It's a very useful phone with no bells or whistles, but it gets the job done. Less

Pro: nice size, good ring, nice and loud also a speakerphone built in Con: Bad reception when first turned on does not come on Using experience: 2 months For the price not bad but could be better if it was done over. It should be made better but for the price it is ok. Sometimes when it is first turned on does not come on.

I bought this cell phone prepaid at circuit city for my daughters twelfth birthday. It wasn't expensive like those flipphones she wanted originally, but when she got it, she screamed "Oh my gosh mommy, daddy, thank you thank you thank you thank you! ect. I was happy and She can buy her own minutes so it works out really well! She loved how it was small enough for her fingers and she thought it looked cool and loved the features! Less
