Great Basic Phone


Great phone, for basic calling and texting. I have purchased for my son and mother in law and it's perfect for what it's used for. I hope they continue to make this phone available for long time.

It's just a phone.


Can't say much about this. We purchased this phone as a backup and it stays it vehicle as a true "car phone". It serves it's purpose and haven't had any issues with it.

Great phone for child


I got this phone for my 8 year old. It's great for the purpose of him reaching family via calls or texting, but that's it's limit. The pictures are low quality. It works for us though.About me... Use for phone calls only, Heavy texter

Just texting and calling is simple for needs of younger child/student

It's small and doesn't take or view good pics
