Predatory sales practices

with no way to disable incoming text or block unknown numbers from texting the 20 cents per text adds up. I've been charged $2 today ALONE on texts for someone that I've never met who lives in Arizona while I live in Illinois. Seriously considering class action lawsuit.

Extremely basic

No way to access our manage sim card contacts, terrible browser, extremely slow navigation of the menu system. Somehow much worse than the ancient panotech it's replacing...I don't know how that could have been possible... Only positive is long idle time.

Decent, not much else to say

You get what you pay for. Dont expect to be able to use the internet. The keypad typing is a relic, past it's time. But for 70$, and to someone who literally only uses it to talk and text, its decent. It gets the job done, although friends might laugh when you pull out this clunky old dinosaur.
