  • Phone turns Purple
    Verified Purchase

    The phone came black and over time with wear (1 year) the black has worn off and the back of the phone is purple. My son is not loving the purple. The phone is hard to text on with limited options too.

  • not compatable with providers other than ATT
    Verified Purchase

    I'd never order another one like it especially if you want internet service through your own Provider with an unlocked cell phone as this one is for getting service loaded from your own provider !

  • Worst phone ever

    It's hard to select the correct item on the touchscreen - the pictures are too small and too close together. The battery life is awful - doesn't even last 12 hours. The interface is not intuitive. The phone is too slow to use the "data" features. Worst phone purchase ever.

  • defect touchscreen
    Verified Purchase

    Purchase phone end of January 2013 and thought it would be a nice unlock phone since I wasnt in contract with my old provider. What fail to do was check the reviews for the product. Yes, this is an unlock cellphone by **** and can be used by other gsm providers besides ****** and ******, but because its not an android it makes it hard to use any of the functions on the phone. I decided to go with ******** service and paid for unlimited plan and found out I couldnt use any data apps on my phone.******** said maybe if phone was an android, the dialpad malfunctioned, got to work, now the whole touchscreen doesnt.....$%&!! Defect, sending back, and just ordered a better phone thats an android which will work with my service.
