Not so sure the fancier ones would be as durable!! 1 year and still doing it's job great! Less

Pro: Inexpensive and a solid performer for the people likr myself who just want a phone without all the battery draining features found todays latest offerings. Con: Battery life still could be longer and of course this isn't loaded with any camera,ect... Using experience: 6 months Stable performance with a small foot print without feeling too tiny. Satisfactory call clarity incoming and must sound acceptable to call recipients because there have been no complaints in that regard.Menu is easy to comprehend and useful without being overwhelming to the point of confusing so features are really used.I would buy this ,or comparable model again.Nokia performs well in my opinion Less

Pretty good deal.

from Phonedog
Pro: Has all the major features that any other phone would have. Speed dial, phone book, games, voicemail. Con: If the phone folded in half wouldn't have to worry about the speed dial getting bumped and accidently calling somebody. Using experience: 11 months I do like this phone. Don't have a hard time using it. It is small and easy to use.

For the price I paid I could not ask for a better value. It stays in my pocket all the time. When I'm indoors, I can turn off the sound, and rely on the vibration only. I rest easier knowing I always have contact with the world with my phone. I know I will always be able to call for help. Less
