Consumer review by:

Phone is used as "back up phone"


Phone is used as a back up phone. For that purpose it's a good and simple phone. Obviously not a phone with all the same functionalities if you want to compare it with a smart phone.

Does what it have to do, making phone calls

Consumer review by:

This should be a free phone!


I wanted this phone to last for a month and with just dialing capability and sure it served the purpose. Will I buy this type of phone again for the same purpose? I doubt so.
