My son started with this phone.. he wanted bigger better, so I took it over.. been using it for over 5 years!.. Battery holds charge, I text on it with my kids and get calls as needed.. Vibrate mode is great, even can tell when on the tractor!. It's lasted so much better than the newer phones my teenage kids have had.. Am gonna hate getting rid of it! when /if the time ever comes... Some of us like a plain phone! Less

Goodbye Lil' Phone

I've had this phone ~3 yrs. The most annoying this was when texting - if you forgot to write something, & you'd back through part of your message to start typing again the T9 wouldn't work, and it would be all capslock! It wouldn't turn off either! It happens all the time, throughout the phone's life....More
I've had this phone ~3 yrs. The most annoying this was when texting - if you forgot to write something, & you'd back through part of your message to start typing again the T9 wouldn't work, and it would be all capslock! It wouldn't turn off either! It happens all the time, throughout the phone's life. You'd have to save a draft, open the text again and continue. Limited text space, like 60 characters before it tapped out. Less

Hate it. So much.

I guess this phone is okay if you just need a phone on the rare occassion. I consider rare about once a month, otherwise this phone is terrible! Pros: -keys do have a nice feel -its easy to figure out -its small... but lose-able in a big purse -battery lasts a while and it charges fast Cons: -my phon...More
I guess this phone is okay if you just need a phone on the rare occassion. I consider rare about once a month, otherwise this phone is terrible! Pros: -keys do have a nice feel -its easy to figure out -its small... but lose-able in a big purse -battery lasts a while and it charges fast Cons: -my phone company is known for good reception, even so, I have to get somebody to repeat something at least 3 times for me to understand. -vibration mode is really bad and loud. -bad ringtones -dead pixels have started to form on my screen and it continues to grow slowly. -internet is the slowest thing Ive ever come by. -no cool features -randomly blinks -will beep every couple of minutes until you finally check the message on it -not easy to text on -slow in general -awkward design making it slippery and easy to drop Less

piece of crap

I've had this phone for over a year... not sure why because the sound sucks big time. I have a very hard time hearing people clearly with this phone.

I've had this phone for over a year... not sure why because the sound sucks big time. I have a very hard time hearing people clearly with this phone. Th other major flaw with this phone is that it cannot be completelely silent whn on vibration. Sure, when you get a text message, it vibrates. But then it beeps periodically to let you know you have a message. No way of shutting removing the beep unless you shut it off. Just plain stupid. Look for another phone and save yourself the hassle. No wonder it is now discontinued. Less

Worked really well if you don't need something Fancy

I had this phone for over a year and never had a problem with it. It dosent have a camera or anything fancy but for what i needed it for it worked wonderfully. I only payed like 25 dollers for the phone with all the pay as you go talk time it included which was really nice. If you don't need a phone t...More

If you don't need a phone that does pictures or music it was simple to use and very durable. Less

I kind of like it!

I got it refurbished and frankly for the price ($35) I really can't complain. Despite this, the speaker phone is a great trick. The keys are a bit too small for me (a guy with average size fingers). It does what I needed from a cell phone.

Loner junk

I recieved this phone as a loner phone while my other was in the repair shop and on the way home it shut off randomly. Now it only works for about 15 minutes at a time (if im lucky) and it wont boot up sucessfuly for a few hours. Everytime I try to start it up the screen either freezes, turns blue, or...More
I recieved this phone as a loner phone while my other was in the repair shop and on the way home it shut off randomly. Now it only works for about 15 minutes at a time (if im lucky) and it wont boot up sucessfuly for a few hours. Everytime I try to start it up the screen either freezes, turns blue, or only the backlight comes on. I hate this phone with a passion. Although im sure it was already broken when they gave it to me its just crazy. MY other phone (nokia 6265I) had so many features and this thing has nothing. If it works and you need a phone to only talk, this is the phone for you. Less

I bought this phone refurbished from telus mobility's website for $30 and it came with $75 worth of airtime. The phone looks likes it brand new. I've never had any problems with it great reception I don't find the buttons too small and it has a great speaker phone I would recommend this if you are looking for a no frills cell phone but buy it from telus mobility website cause it's such a good deal. The only complaint I have is that it has not outside screen. :) Less
