Love this phone

bought this phone used and loving it. only prob to it is not fast enough reload time but even still not that much diff phone over all is great on it i have no probs txting or calling with it and would recommend it for others

Meh

The volume control on the left side sticks, which makes the keys not work. The centre dial stopped working after 5 months. Calls people all the time when in my pocket.
