I love this phone

its a flip and its better for me cause I only text on it

Pretty decent phone

I like it. I need the simple basic phone, and it is great for that, as well it has the bonus of music player and camera. I haven't yet tried to put music on. I also love that it has a memory card slot, as my old phone did not and the photos are forever stuck on that phone! My one problem with this phon...More
I like it. I need the simple basic phone, and it is great for that, as well it has the bonus of music player and camera. I haven't yet tried to put music on. I also love that it has a memory card slot, as my old phone did not and the photos are forever stuck on that phone! My one problem with this phone that will be tricky to get used to is it is a bit laggy when it comes to text messaging. I can't text really quickly, because it doesn't recognize the keys in time. Otherwise, a step up from my old Samsung phone. Less

By Far The Worst Cell Phone I Have Ever Owned!

I purchased my phone from Sasktel not even two months ago and it is already dead, and considering that I rarely use it.....this is a very sad situation.

I purchased my phone from Sasktel not even two months ago and it is already dead, and considering that I rarely use it.....this is a very sad situation. The phone's screen becomes pixelated, goes black, and the phone will not turn on or off. It has not been damaged by me in anyway, it has never been dropped, never been anywhere near water. I will never recommend this phone to anyone, period..... Less

Not bad but not good either

Comapred to other phones that I had this is the lesser quality. When you push the button to bring up the time it is not fast, the cover for the charge plug is very flimsy, I don't expect it will last. For big hands it is not easy to open the phone.

Good basic phone but ...

However, the small front screen cover started to come off the phone after a few days. I had to glue it back in. Manufacturer defect or very poor quality? This was a real turn off. Less

Great little flip phone!

Just the phone I need. I'm not into surfing on a phone or carrying a large phone, so for talk and text this compact phone is just right. The display is large and bright, volume is loud and clear, the size is comfortable to use. The camera at 2MP is adequate. It would be nice to have a higher resolution camera.

NOT for BIG fingers

Not a bad phone. But I was looking for just the BASIC. The center, "OK" button works the arrows for you to manipulate the menu - YOU CANNOT use the "UP" direction as the button simply believes you are pressing"OK". Minor, but aggravating. Texting for large fingers is out of the question. Reception s...More
Not a bad phone. But I was looking for just the BASIC. The center, "OK" button works the arrows for you to manipulate the menu - YOU CANNOT use the "UP" direction as the button simply believes you are pressing"OK". Minor, but aggravating. Texting for large fingers is out of the question. Reception seems crackly for some reason. I gave it a "6" for phone use, that's it! Less
