This is one of the few touch phones that is compatible with the $30/month plan and it has some very nice features: Every time you send/receive a message or end a call, it tells you your balance. You can check your balance at anytime with the "Prepaid" icon, but you get a regular update. When you create a message and go to select the recipients, the phone will remember who you texted most recently and list them first. You can create a "Contacts" home screen to quickly access the people you talk to the most and create a "Shortcuts" home screen for the features that you use the most. You can download a Facebook app, insert a microSD card to store more files, play music, and take video. Some drawbacks include: I haven't figured out how to upload photos to FB with the app. There's an SNS feature which can access Facebook and I uploaded a picture with that, but it came out really small. Also, the app is easier to navigate and it's faster. Luckily, I have an adapter for the microSD card, so I can upload the photos to my computer. You can text with a keyboard or 9-keypad, but there are some features (like searching online) that only allow you to use the 9-keypad. The phone doesn't have a motion sensor, so the keyboard always sits length-wise (I'll let you decide whether that's good or bad). Sometimes when selecting a text to read, the phone selects the message beneath the one I thought I tapped. This same phenomenon happened when I meant to text my cousin, and wound up texting a friend instead. It's not always very good at sending pictures. Though it does let you know when it was unable to send your message. While it can take okay shots with plenty of sunlight, the quality goes down drastically down indoors, but keep in mind it's a 2 megapixel camera. The same goes for video. When receiving a message from someone in your contacts list, you may just see a phone number where their name should be. For some reason, this occurs when you input your contacts' first and last names OR if their first name is too long. This is irritating because I had two friends named "Kate." Now I have one friend named "Kate" and one friend named "Kathryn." There are definitely improvements that can be made, but it's a decent phone overall and it's suitable for basic everyday needs.

The only thing I don't like about this phone is the AT&T service...it is awful. That is my only regret about getting this phone, and that really has nothing to do with the phone. I cannot afford and do not want a smart phone, so this is the perfect phone for me. I was already a Straight Talk customer, and had no problem at all switching service from one phone to the other...I did it online and it was a snap! Kept my same # and transferred my $30 a month plan to my new phone. Works like a charm. Love the alarm clock feature..set different times for different days for the entire week and forget it. Done. Lots of sound options to choose from. I have big fingers and have no problem typing out messages. I like that I can check my balance with a couple of taps. Setting up Wi-Fi was simple and quick...not that I use it, but it's there. I am not a phone person, so the 1000 minutes, 1000 texts is just right for me...I have never even used half of it and I have had it for almost 2 years. If you are the same, get this phone...you will not be disappointed.

I ordered a Samsung Proclaim and sent it back. I didn't want the needless overabundance of features in "smartphones". I do still have to get used to the box shape which isn't as comfortable as my flip phone. However, the features are pretty easy to use and the touch tone is just sensitive enough without having a complete mind of it's own (like in "smartphones"). Plus, it does work with the $30 per month plan which makes it immediately more attractive. I do wish it had vibration option on the keyboard which would make it feel more "real" w/o my old beloved buttons. Oh, well. I did get a thick phone case because the thin rectangle design would fall right out of my hand without a cover. Again, a box doesn't fit my hand like the flip phones. Also, if you want a great tutorial before purchasing it, go onto StaightTalk website and put in the model number for tuturials. It makes you feel acquainted with your phone before you receive it.

I have had this phone for 4 days and have found the following. You can NOT lock any text messages to save them from being batch deleted. Everything I have tried you can NOT use mp3 music you put on the micro sd card as Ringtones. I have had lots of cheaper ST phones and I could always use my music for ringtones. This phone is "supposed" to be a little more than basic and you would think you can customize your Ringtones with your music. I have tried putting the files in all different folders. Can't be done. For this reason alone I will be returning the phone. I love the touch feature and the look of the phone but for the reasons stated I don't think it worth $80. Especially considering Tracfone owns ST and this SAME phone offered through Tracfone is $20 CHEAPER. Go figure. I didn't want to commit to $45 a month for an android and all its fun features and thought for sure this would be exactly what I was looking for and unfortunately it is not. I have had decent coverage in the days I have owned it. It is on AT&T's network.

Customer has been confirmed to have purchased the item from Walmart.

I'm still learning about the phone. It was very easy to get the phone set up and transfer my # from my Verizon phone. I have service in the specific locations I need a phone to work. It was easy to get my bluetooth headphone set up. It was easy to get connected to my home WiFi. I don't like that when someone replies to a text, I'm not sure what the reply refers to. My kids tell me that they see the whole conversation on their phone. Maybe it's some setting for me to find. I put all the phone #s from my old phone onto the micro sd card, so they are on this phone, but I can't transfer them into Contacts, I can just do one at a time. I am satisfied with the phone, but I did feel like the poor-relation after getting together with my kids over Christmas and seeing their more expensive phones--but I like my monthly cost better than theirs!
