4-line QWERTY keyboard, Music player, Bluetooth capable, IM & Sprint Mobile email

Rumors aren't hard to spread, especially with the stylish new Rumor2. Its 4-line QWERTY keyboard and Bluetooth capabilities allows a shorter response time when sending and receiving the latest gossip. It also eliminates the "I don't believe it." statement of denial with proof from the 1.3 megapixel camera.

A Qwerty For $40?

I've been a Virgin mobile customer since July. I bought their cheapest phone (the Jax) just to see if their service was any good. It wasn't good, it was great. I had features with Virgin that T-mobile didn't offer, for a price that nobody could beat. I liked my Jax, but when my camera died, I decided to think about a better phone with a camera. Enter the Rumor 2. Before I activated the phone I tested it out for a couple of days. I played with the camera, the setting, etc...and found them to be fine for a phone in this price range. The phone itself is very solid with just enough features to make me happy. Is it a Droid? NO! Will it take decent pictures, send text and email, play mp3s? YES. In fact, in addition to the full, slide-out 4 row qwerty keyboard which is easy to navigate, it has an easily accessible micro sd (i.e. it's not under the battery) and unlike many of their Beyond Talk phones, this one works on Paylo as well! I have it on the $30 Paylo plan right now but can switch between the two plans as needed. Versatility is a beautiful thing. So, the good: FULL QWERTY, very good call quality, WORKS WITH BEYOND TALK AND PAYLO, accessible micro sd means never having to send yourself a picture or a song:) The average: 1.3mp camera could be a little better (see picture). The bad: Only 3 real ringtones, games are demos:( One more note because I see people ask this question all the time...This is a CDMA phone. That means that you can't jam in your SIM card because they don't use them. Also, this is not a phone you can unlock. It is for use with Virgin Mobile only. They may share Sprint lines, but you can only use it with Virgin...not Sprint, Boost, PagePlus, Verizon, ATT or TMobile, or Straight Talk. I hope that helps. Any regrets buying this phone? None

I love this phone

So I like the phone, but I KNOW FOR A FACT I'm going to have a problem with virgin mobiles company. I received my phone Monday and called to activate it, after I opened it and the serial number wasn't in the system so I have to wait 24 - 72 hours to wait until they fix this problem, I really don't know whose fault it was but it was very stressful. But I do recommend the phone, it takes awesome pictures in good lighting, there are some cool demo games, the MP3 is awesome, and also I like that you can edit the pics a little on the phone. I can not wait to see how it works when I get it activated.

Great phone!

I purchased this phone for my daughter several months ago after our contract with Verizon was up. I am 100% satisfied! Pros: *This phone has a full QWERTY for easy texting. *Has a mood key for easy insertion of smileys. *Long battery life even with heavy use. *Cool games/apps. *Auto text response when you can't answer a call. *SD port so you can add memory. *Solid build. It does NOT feel cheap. *Good camera for quality pics/videos. *Great call quality. *$25.oo a month for unlimited Web/Email/Messaging and 300 minutes. Cons: *The screen can be a little difficult to read when you are accessing the web. This phone has been wonderful and you can't beat the price!

Great Phone and plan = Awesome Value.

Have had this phone for a little over a month now and I can say it is one nice phone. Have not had any problems with it at all. Has excellent battery life, call clarity and the querty keyboard is very nice. When you take all this phone has to offer and combine that with Virgin Mobiles $25 per month beyond talk plan it makes for one awesome deal that is hard to beat.
