Remember back when phones were so incredible unreliable? Remember back before the age of Smartphones? Remember before a camera could only do 2.0 mega pixels? Do you like nostalgia? If so, then this is the phone for you!! I had a Samsung Freeform II from 2010, that had far more capabilities than this useless piece of trash which I bought in 2015. I mean, this pile of garbage can't even get internet service adequately. I have never had a phone that was so pathetically bad in every category. Everything is difficult to use. Forwarding messages is a pain. Anything and everything is a pain. The only reason I got this phone is because MetroPCS was changing their system over to T-Mobile and my Samsung could not make the conversion so I wanted something that had a hard-keyboard that I could use to text with one hand. Yes, I'm one of the guilty people that texts and drives. I promise I'm gonna stop doing that but in the meantime, this is the only phone MetroPCS had that fit my texting needs. Of course, even that is difficult to do. There really is not one thing of any value to this phone and I strongly urge everyone to look at a different phone unless you're into expensive, low quality phones. Less

Excellent, with some issues.

Nice display, sleek thin body, fabulous sound quality. Power-up and Power-off are both slow. Manual and ZTE support, both nearly worthless. Back case is apparently a very porous material, and mysterious light rust-colored stains are appearing. Altogether, a very good phone for the price.
