I got these phones for me and my husband. We have had the iphones and the androids, and the contracts to go with them, but we need to cut costs. This little phones is really nice. Nice feel, very responsive screen, great call clarity, more than enough bells and whistles for us. My husband talks and I text so the $30 a month card from straight talk seems to be enough for us. don't be afraid to get this phone if you are looking to talk and text more than anything else. It will surprise you. Great phone.

I am very happy with this little phone. I am primarily a talker and texter but use the phone to access the web several times a day also with no problem what so ever. Its a wonderful thing to recieve and respond to emails from your phone and very easy to set that up. I can only imagine that if you are already accustomed to androids or iphones that this phone would be a giant disappointment, but for us "everyday Joe's" who want a little bit more than the basic old phone but still aren't willing to spend more than $80-$100 this fits the bill just fine.

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.

Phone is great. Works with the $30 plan. 1000 min 1000 text is plenty for me. When you run out of kb for the internet( 30 kb goes fast) it has wifi. Wifi is faster anyway. The only issue is batt life. I am not use to these type large screen touch phones. You will be charging daily. Have a charger at home, one in car, one at work....LOL sad but true. Has regular keyboard qwerty for texting. Very easy to navigate. Here is a cool tutorial. http://tracfone.deviceanywhere.com/straighttalk/home.seam?custId=STLG840G&locale=en_US If you want a somewhat smart looking phone without the high price of the unlimited plan, get this phone.
