Piece of junk!!!!! Had it about 3 months and the charger port on the side of the phone quit working and will not charge the battery anymore. It gets even better the warranty division declined to replace it and I was paying extra for insurance through AIO and they also declined to replace it. They are now just giving this phone away to new customers but I don't qualify. AIO JUST WANTS TO SELL ME A NEW PHONE. No thanks!!! I'll take my business elsewhere
