Decent phone for the price
Reviewed on Friday February 14, 2014 by Eric, Toronto
$0 is what I paid for it. No contracts. Nothing. Mind you, I did get it as a "Christmas special" when I topped up my 7/11 Speakout credit for $100 for my iPhone.
Anyway, fired it up out of curiosity (it was free in every sense of the word) and it's not bad. It's definitely not great and if you're looking for your only phone I'd say spend at least $100. Speaker quality is ho hum and the LCD is 2009 low res (it reminds me of my LG Rumor). But, it works. Battery life is decent (compared to my iPhone ;-).
And, all the complaints in this forum. Frankly, mostly they're due to operator error. Once you figure out the interface (not entirely intuitive but a few hours spent fiddling will suffice) and you'll be able to change volume, turn on and off speaker, set ring tones and more.
I'd certainly recommend it as a decent 'back up' phone. You can SMS, call and do WAP browsing if you're truly desperate. It even has a qwerty keyboard that works. But, if it's your only phone, don't. Save your money and get more unless you're on a truly tight budget.
PS It's also not for people with reduced vision or dexterity. The buttons are small. Not too small that a normal male can't use them but small enough that I'd say a person of advanced years wouldn't appreciate it.
