Imagine if you were an Android user, the owner of a Samsung Galaxy S, then one day it gets stolen from you and you look for a quick and inexpensive but decent phone to replace it.
Look elsewhere. My mother came home with this thing for me (I'm in high school) and I loved the way the plan sounded. Cheap and affordable, unlimited calls and texts, wow! This was all amazing until I opened the box.
First off before I even turned it on, the phone felt cheap. Not just cheap either, it reminded me of those fake iPod nano's from china that feel like a dollar store product. The buttons felt flimsy, but I was willing to try to look past this.
Next thing I know, the phones on and makes some awkward noise when it goes on. I tried to text someone but the interface was a complete mess, the screen resolution was something of 2003, and it was just flat out terrible.
I didn't want to be rude but I thought it was a sick joke. This phone is an abysmal monstrosity, its a cheaply made china style dollar store phone. Fortunately I begged her to take it back and I ended up with a blackberry curve from fido.
Do not EVER buy from Public Mobile unless you just need a phone that can call people. If you need to check e-mails or anything else, its just not going to happen. I tried to open google on the web browser just to see what it was like and this piece of trash took a good 20 seconds to load. Even worse, it looked like the web browser in a nokia phone from 2003.
There are much better options out there, unfortunately you'll have to go on a contract to do this but I now have a blackberry curve 9300 and its a great phone.
I'm sorry this review isn't in more depth but I wanted this nightmare away from me asap.
Stay beautiful, yours truely..
