The phone is awesome with its amazing camera pixels and easy to use menu and apps, it is a gadget addict's dream come true. I've had Sony, LG, Samsung and of course, Nokia with Sony and Nokia being unmatched. Grab the Nokia 86 before it is discontinued and STAY AWAY FROM SOLO, the worst cell phone provider from sea to shining sea and beyond. They think nothing about putting senior citizens in danger by blocking the phone by mistake!!! They're rude, uncaring and UNRELIABLE. SOLO is so low they're dangerous!!!!!!!!!!!! Less
