Phone is exactly as advertised, although there are seemingly not TV stations that it can pick up. I was in a major metropolitan area and I got 2 stations. Both were very fuzzy and one was Spanish channel and the other was a tech channel, so I don't know what band they are running off of, but I didn't get the phone for a television, was just a fun feature, or at least I thought it would be. Radio feature works great, still a lot of static and seems maybe a little too sensitive. Phone quality is great, calls are clear, although a volume control would have been nice. More information in the owners manual would have been incredibly helpful to start...like how to lock the keypad... button functions... how to find what you are looking for. It did take me a day or two to figure them out. That being said the phone works perfectly for my needs! It is great buy for the price and quality appears to be there as well. Still don't understand the value of dual SIMS? Wouldn't you then have to have TWO phone plans? But much like the TV, nice accessory idea, just not what I go the phone for. One other down fall is I have ******** which will let you make Wi-Fi calls and this has no wi-fi, but it is a basic phone and has no data linking, so I can understand the none necessity of wifi-connectivity.
I really super wanted to like this phone. I wasn't looking for anything fancy, just a decent little phone to take a few pics with and do basic calling and texting. I put in my sim card and SD card, but still have to empty my inbox after exactly 12 messages come in-REALLY ANNOYING AND INCONVENIENT. Does not receive MMS messages, my daughter says I need to change the APN, but you cannot do this because it is set to "automatic". It is not intuitive or user friendly in any way, and the "alt" button is shot after not even 2 weeks of light use. Gives you a choice of exactly 3 ringtones, and even when you record your own, it only sometimes will ring that tone, usually defaults to some pre set tone. Probably does not help that my phone was pre-set for Brazil. If you are looking for a throwaway phone, this one might do for you, but honestly my $** Samsung is a much better phone, and I pretty much hate it. Decided to make the leap to a smartphone, and if that one gets here before the return time is up, this one is going back.
