If you need and update and cannot afford a apple phone or do not wish to get locked into an expensive contract, this might be the perfect phone for you. I just got it and it is very impressive looking, very functional and versatile. I just transferred my numbers to my SIM, popped it in the phone after charging it; after setting up the date and time and ring tone, and entered the Wi-Fi key, I was good to go. The screen is crisp and clear. You just get most of the features of the Apple phone without the huge cost. If you need the perfect pre-paid phone, give it a try. I do not know about technical issues, but for now, I have experienced none.
