I'm about to finally get a smartphone, but I want to give credit to this phone that has worked fine for more than 5 years! Of course it's way outdated now but if someone was forced to buy a phone in this price range I would highly recommend it. I had only 1 problem with it. I bought it New Year's Eve 2008. At midnight 2 years later, it went totally dead. I couldn't even turn it on; I tried everything. About 5 hours later it came back to life on it's own; it had not lost my contacts, photos, etc. Never had ANY other problems with it.
A great phone for its class (although I admit I have not tried any of the others)
It's way outdated now. As others have said the texting is slow.
