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
