Great for a backup


I bought this as a backup in case my battery died or my phone broke and need something in a pinch. Texting is easy with the keyboard and reminds me of my old blackberry. Never had a problem with call quality. Also, it was quite easy to change the SIM...

Easy to set up, cheap

Small screen
