    I have had this phone for over a year now. This is a great phone for texting and calling. (Im not sure about the web browser, never had it hooked up) The sound quality was above average and texting was very simple. I noticed for people who have long nails it can be kind of tricky but you'll get the hang of it. It takes GREAT pictures and they upload very well. The one I attached is of my brother in a poorly lit area. I never lost a call with it and it can last a good while with out being charged if your not talking on it the whole time. I only had one problem that JUST recently occurred and it was on my own error. The chip that connects it to the cell towers for service got damage as a result of it being thrown into a wall from my brother. At&t helped me find the problem and let me get a replacement for the phone. Other than that, the keys are kind of small and hard-ish, But once you get over that it is well worth the money! This phone comes with quite and very loud ringtones so its perfect for those who cant hear their phone that well and those who can. the reason it got four stars on 'expectation' is because it doesn't have a video option. Other than that I have gotten many compliments on the way the phone look and operates. Overall worth the money 100%

    This phone looks like it cost more than it did. I got it for around $58 on Walmart.com and it came with $30 worth of airtime, so that was a great deal. Yeah, the keys are a little small, but I have larger fingers and I was surprised that I had little problems typing while texting. I have a 2 year contract with AT&T, and I'm sick of the little plain Samsung phone I'm stuck with and wanted something that looked cooler and this phone is it. No, it's not a Blackberry, but I'm happy with it. I just took my SIM card out of my old phone, put it in this one and it worked like a charm. Love it! Battery life is good, as sometimes I forget to turn it off at night, and I've only had to charge it a couple times since I've owned it a couple weeks now. The preloaded wallpapers are very vibrantly colored and sharp-I l have the surfboards/tiki one and it's really pretty. Haven't tried the bluetooth feature yet. If you can find a CaseLogic cell phone holder with the magnetic flap that goes over the top, that is the case to get, it holds this phone perfectly and comes with a belt clip.

    For the price I paid for this, it is the best deal you'll find for a phone like this one! The only 2 complaints I have about this phone is 1)the picture taking quality is poor and 2)there is no micro SD card to transfer the pictures you do take. But it does have blue tooth and you can transfer them that way or buy the USB cord for the phone. Just not as convenient as I'd like.

    Great phone. Just switch your SIM card and they add minutes to your regular account. PLUS is that you do NOT have to extend your contract with ATT.

    It took a while to get used to the letters because they are very small. If your fingers are big, it's hard for you to text. I have not had any problems with the phone. I actually like it better than my Black Berry phone.

    • A. I tried doing this when I bought this phone a few weeks ago. Inside of the package it says if you are an existing GoPhone user, to put your old SIMS card into the new phone and it should work. I tried this and got a SIMSc ard error. Once I called ATT they said that my old SIMS card was locked to my old phone and ultimately they were not able to unlock it for my new phone. I ended up using the new SIMS card and manually transfered my contacts to the new phone. They SAY you can transfer your old SIMS card, but don't bet money on it.
