It's the second time in 16 months that i have problems with this phone, as i can see i'm not the only one. They will replace my phone but i still lose all my contacts. I don't mind paying for a service but when will they finally make a phone that just simply "works" with no internet, gadgets, cameras... all that.

I bought this particular phone about a year ago. It started off alright losing ocassional calls but has since started continously searching. The speaker fades out and people can hear me and I cannot hear them. It misses calls without ringing, it changes ring tones on its own. I have brought it in for repairs twice and have continous problems with it. I would not recommend this phone to anyone. I have several friend who have purchased the same phone and all are experiencing the same problems.

We have two of them. One for my daughter and one for me. Hers has been OK, but she complains that it loses signal in buildings. I too, have the same problem. This is the second One that I have owned. My first one died. Bell Norcom replaced the unit. I would lose calls, signals, and I also had a problem with the flip area as the phone would just cut out. The first one seemed to pick up moisture from somewhere and it coroded inside..who knew..:-)?...I guess it was the wire going from the phone to the flip, that had also caused another problem in the first phone. So far the second phone has been OK..but I am again losing antenna strength. Each week I notice my signal bars are becoming less and less, I used to have I have 2 that show up...which is what occured with my first phone. I find that the phone is not durable. The finish is coming off this phone, from keeping it in my pocket, so I do not lose it. I can see the white/yellow plastic of the case. I am in the market for another phone. pretty sure it will not be a flip phone this time. It has given me fairly good service, but at times seems to be unreliable when you need it most. Battery is very good, but since mine roams and looks for a signal at my place of work..the battery life is usually done after 9 hours or work. Need to have a better RF. Small keys...thank god for speed fingers are too large for the pad, but I make it work. I would give it an overall rating of 2 1/2 out of 5....not the worst, but not the best either..OK for the family or younger kids in Public school.

This phone is horrible, There is a problem with the flex wire in the hinge and it always cuts out the speaker after a while. You won't be able to hear who your calling but they can hear you, it's really annoying. I'm on my 3rd phone of this model and it just started acting up again and now my warranty has expired. Oh yea and the reception problem, recall I got that on my second one along with the speaker problem. This cell is garbage.
