Best thing

I've had this phone for over three years now, giving it constant use and dropping it all the time, and it's never failed on me. Granted, it doesn't have all the features that smartphones have, but what it does have it does great. And it's cheap. I recommend it.

Warranty problems

I have had a C-3 for 6 weeks. The screen started going black and I returned it to the retailer( TheSource, Canada). He said to contact Pantech. They said they could not provide warranty because it was activated on the ROGERS network and they do not do Rogers phone warranties. After i contacted Rogers,...More
I have had a C-3 for 6 weeks. The screen started going black and I returned it to the retailer( TheSource, Canada). He said to contact Pantech. They said they could not provide warranty because it was activated on the ROGERS network and they do not do Rogers phone warranties. After i contacted Rogers, I discover that they don't do warranty either. Now I have a useless phone that no one claims responsibility for warranty work. Last night Rogers told me their records show that this is a Grey market phone . the Source on-line were quite interested in this comment as they buy their phones directly from Rogers. My advice. AVOID PANTECH. AVOID ROGERS. The screen started turning black from the perimiter in one spot and I could watch it follow faults in the screen. I know I am not going to get any satisfaction from these corporations but maybe my experience will keep someone else from having the same problems. Less

best phone ever

I,ve had my phone over one yr and love it nice and small for biking and hiking.got it free

EXCELLENT!

from Yahoo
Pro: size, long life (over 2 years and counting) Con: none I had this phone for over two years, and not once did I ever have problems with it! Not one time! All the major brands' phones have given me trouble before, but not this cheaper phone. Excellent buy if you are looking for quality but don't have a lot of money.

Great Phone! I don't text or surf, so the small screen is a non issue. If you want a solid, reliable phone, this is it. I've had mine for 4 years. I carry it my pocket on construction sites with dirt and whatever and it never fails. I've put it through the wash by accident at least 3 times. Dry it out and it starts right up.

lets see! :P

I got this phone about a year and a half ago and it hasn't failed me yet! I'm in the 7th grade, so it's great as a first-time cell phone! It's small, portable, comes with a pink and silver faceplate, takes great pictures, come with about 10 different ringtones, reception is great, and the ringtone volume is PERFECT. The only problem I found was that the sound that it makes when you take a picture is really loud and annoying, and I don't know how to turn it off. But overall, I DEFINATELY recommend this phone!

BEST

this is the best phone i have bought yet- it was only $112 at The Source and it came with an extra case. it is cheap, small, portable, and fabulous! It's great for people who are getting their first cellphone because it is so easy to use.

Great response time. Used tracking numbers on shipping. Very professional. I would be happy to do business with the same eBayer again.

Great Phone, but definitly a Girl's Phone

I bought this phone in June because of its smallness. I do not like carrying around a bulky phone which bulges from my pocket. It has been great and not given me any problems.

I wish I could write a good review about this particular item, but since I have yet to receive it and have opened a dispute on it I am unable to. My other experiences have been more positive and I will remain a customer so far.
