I don't like this phone because it is not user friendly.

The only thing good about this phone is its durability.  Texting is difficult to find.  When you press any digit, it gives all your call history, which does not protect confidentiality. Most of all if a friend sends you a pic, you cannot zoom in. I would almost give this phone a -1.
