I have owned this phone for three days now. I absolutely love this phone so far. Good quality for the money. The phone weight and size is perfect for me. The quality of the camera is good--camera takes vibrant pictures. I am still trying to get use to the virtual keyboard (I have fat fingers). The speaker is also clear--nice volume. This is my second droid phone and I like this one better than the Samsung I had. So far I have had no problems with apps stalling and no problems with phone shut offs. This phone comes loaded with the basic smartphone apps (along with a few extras....some I have not attempted yet). Nice phone case design as well as the screen layout. If I have GPS or WIFI turned on, the phone will stay up for about 5 hours on a full charge. If I turn those features off, I can get about 10 hours on a full charge. I would recommend this phone especially for a first time smartphone users because it's easy to navigate and easy to learn to maneuver.

When I first bought the Prism from amazon, I really liked it. It looked really nice, & was easy to use. After about a week, it would just start to shut down on me for no reason at any given time. I thought it may have been the area I was in bc it gets spotty service, but it wasn't. It happened everywhere. So, thinking and hoping it was just a glitch with the phone, I returned it and went to wal-mart and bought it again. Worked great, was so happy with it, wasn't giving me any problems at all. I bought a case and other acessories for it, thinking all was well. About a week ago it started shutting down on me, again. Annoyed I returned it to wal mart 4 days shy of my 30 day return limit, and got the samsung exhibit. So far so good with that phone. I wish I didn't have to give a bad review, bc all in all I think the Prism is a good, nice phone, just made badly I guess. If that wasn't happening, I'd have given the phone 5 stars.

I bought this phone about three weeks ago to replace a relic in android phones, my old G1, and since owning it I haven't had one problem so far. It doesn't freeze, it has enough memory to store what I need, but I am not one to load a phone down with a bunch of unnecessary clutter. I suppose for the people who'd prefer the freedom to do that it doesn't have enough internal memory, but for me it's good. Before owning this phone I preferred a touch screen with a slide out keyboard, but now I can honestly say I really like the virtual keyboard with this phone it is very sensitive and rarely do I have an issue with typos because of it. The only complaint with the keyboard is the fact that it replaces my words for what it assumes I meant. There is probably a way to turn that off that I am not savvy enough to figure it out. But all in all I am 100% satisfied and would make the same purchase again.

I would not recommend this phone. It's too much money for the problems it has. Biggest problem: The phone turns off & back on by itself (even during calls & entering a new contact or an alarm, etc.). There are a few cool things about this phone but NOTHING is worth a phone that continues to turn off & on at random times. I read the reviews & some people didn't have problems so I gave the phone the benefit of the doubt. The phone didn't start turning off & on for me until months later, which is TOO LATE to return it! Save your money and buy another phone! Really. After a lot of frustration with this phone, I came across info about the Nokia Lumia 521 and I love it so far. They aren't easy to find because people love them already. I found it $20 cheaper at Wal-mart than at the T-Mobile store for $150. I would check your area Wal-marts online & perhaps in the store or call Electronics department to see if they have any in stock or if they are ordering more. Good luck whatever you decide.

This is my first android phone and so far the phone is working pretty well. My daughter told me I had to give up my flip phone and keep up with technology. She bought this phone as a gift to me. The features on this phone are nice, the screen is simple and the phone is thin and light. Plenty of space for photos. With an SD card, it holds a lot of photos. I don't like the touch screen keyboard. I will have to practice using it in order to get better. Its fast and has a lot of nifty features. I am not a big texter neither do I frequent the internet often. Overall, good phone.

  • A. No data package needed. Go to settings and program it for your wifi connections. As long as you are in wifi zones you can then access the internet w/o any data charge, much like an Ipod. You can always check out any additional questions regarding phones and plans by engaging in an online chat at tmobile.com. Hope the info helps!

  • A. Most smart phones require a data package in order to be used to their full potential, otherwise it might be better to get a regular cellphone. I have used a smartphone without the data and it is just a tease to see all the apps and fun things you could do if only you had data. So, yes, you probably can use this phone without it, but a lot of the apps may not work for you unless you are within range of a wifi hot spot which will allow access to those programs and apps that need it to work, but only for the length of time that you are within range of the wifi.

I have the samsung gravity and I need a new phone but I don't want to switch plans. Is it possible to buy this phone, take my sim card out of my current phone, place it in this phone, and have the phone work?..is that possible?

  • A. That is exactly what we did. We needed a new phone as my Samsung Gravity was stolen and my daughter had the Gravity as well. I took her phone and used my sim card in it and replaced hers with the Prism as she wanted a touchscreen. We have no data plan but she can even use it in wifi zones w/o any data charges! Good luck to you with the phone!

  • A. That depends on your service provider. If you already have t-mobile service then more than likely, yes, you can. If you have a prepaid service like I do then you need to check with that provider to see if this is a phone that is compatible with their services. I already know that my service provider is compatible with any t-mobile phone even if it is not unlocked. If you do happen to know how to unlock this phone then you have opened up the possibilities even more. An unlocked phone that accepts sim cards should be able to be used with any service that utilizes simcards.
