Easy to use, good voice clarity.Read More
I bought 2 of these Pantech Crossover unlocked cell phones from Overstock.com. The phones were delivered within 4 days - very quick. After inserting the SIM cards, both phones worked immediately. There is a brief tutorial that is helpful at getting you started. The WiFi feature is by far my favorite. I do not have a data plan but free WiFi is available almost everywhere these days. The camera takes good, clear pictures up close, but is not good for distance Zoom or action shots. I love being able to take pics and immediately post to Facebook like my friends who pay for data plans. So cool. Plus I can easily download apps to play games like Words with Friends. The screen is medium sized and the body of the phone is not as thin as the previous Pantech I had, but still fits in my pocket. I bought a 16Gb memory card with an adapter and can easily transfer songs and pics quickly between my phone and laptop. The media player in the phone is easy to learn how to use. Now, I use the songs downloaded to my phone or listen to Pandora while I work out. I am a newer "texter" but find the slide out keyboard convenient to use. I'm not sure what the previous reviewer was talking about - my touch screen works great. I especially like that you can use 2 fingers to enlarge any text (2 finger zoom?).Read More
I returned the phone because it did not always respond to my tapping the screen. It did perhaps less than 1/2 the time. It was very annoying trying to use it and it wasted my time which I really hate. The clarity was not too good either. I should have heeded the warnings of other reviewers who said they had the same issue I did. Altho the phone is sturdy and well built outside, inside is a different story. Don't waste your hard earned money on this.Read More
Questions & Answers
Yes, GENERALLY... as long as the phone does not lock up without a sim-card, you can access Skype without it. I had to use Skype when my ATnT got shut off. (I had a Sharp FX Plus with the Android 2.2 OS just like this, unless you have updated to Gingerbread 2.3 OS, of which you are perfectly capable.) But yes, you SHOULD be able to.
"on texting can you have your own message tone or does it only have selected noises?"
Thank you for your question. This item only has selected noises. Have a great day!
I've worked with this OS before... I have had the ability to change ringtones for each individual user at my will... To the best of my knowledge, it's the OS... It's like Windows. You install Windows on one computer and another and you can open applications on both (provided you have the software). I see no reason, given you have the knowledge as to how to change it, that you should not be able to change it.
You may also go talk to the company (generally, if it's ATnT, they are really helpful with this, from my knowledge) you can also setup the Android Gingerbread OS rather than the 2.2 OS which is advantageous.
"Can I connect WiFi and does this phone go with a sim card?"
Yes, you can connect to a Wi-Fi signal with this phone, and it does require a SIM card.
Yes, this phone is WiFi-capable, and it can take a SIM card.
