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

Okay for the price


I have bought one before and the sound was not good. This one is a little better but still have problems hearing all. You do have the option of volume but it needs to be higher. I am not hard of hearing either.This product is... Easy navigationAbout...

Would be a 5 but...


Camera is good. Graphics are very clear. Durable & easy to use. Even has some features my sisters iPhone 4 doesn't have. The only reason I didn't rate it a 5 stars is because I can't play games on it.

just enough for beginners


We purchased the first phone for my son (hi dreams a touch screen phone) :-)

Consumer review by:

Good basic phone with decent features.


Works as needed as a back up phone. Don't look for modern expectations with media, but for voice and text it does very well.

Low price, easy to use basic phone

Small keys for texting, poor voice quality in places with strong echos

Get what you pay for and this was cheap!!


IPhone ruined so this was temporary waiting for replacement. Way too tiny and not so easy to use after iPhone simplicity.

Not much

So small, service slow, monthly charge expensive for service quality
