    Amazon.com Product Description

    It's here and it's better than ever. With a number of big improvements over the original Sidekick, the Sidekick II is a powerful mobile companion and tri-band world phone. Flip open the big color screen and shoot off unlimited e-mails on the better-than-ever QWERTY keyboard. Snap a photo with the new built-in camera and send it to your friends. Hop online and check your top Web picks. Or just pick up your Sidekick II and make a call. And the T-Mobile To Go version of the Sidekick II is the hassle-free way to stay connected. No long-term contract. No credit check. No deposits or monthly bills.

    Design

    The Sidekick II's email client supports up to three POP/IMAP accounts.

    The integrated VGA camera supports 640x480 resolution. There's even a flash for nighttime shots.

    AOL Instant Messenger comes installed on the handset.

    View any HTML website and navigate with ease using the Sidekick II's scroll wheel.
    The Sidekick II is designed to be easy to use in every way. The unique, 240 x 160 pixelss screen supports 65,000 colors and opens to reveal a full keyboard for all your text messaging, emailing and calendar updates. Many users complained about the original Sidekick's lack of buttons for quick access to basic functions. All that has been remedied in this new model. New dual purpose dedicated send/end and page up/down buttons make it easier to place calls and surf the Web. Previously, users had to go into the settings menu of the device to change the volume, but new dedicated external buttons make the process easier and more intuitive. What's more, there's now an external power button-- no more opening the display to turn the handset on. There's also a new external directional pad that can be accessed without opening the screen, a big plus for gaming applications. The Sidekick II retains the handy rocker switch on the right side of the device for quick menu navigation and selection.

    The overall size of the Sidekick II is another big change. The unit is approximately 25 percent thinner than the previous version. Overall, it has been improved to provide a more comfortable feel when used as a phone. It's also been designed with an integrated camera for the first time. The camera, LED flash unit and self portrait mirror are located on the back of the Sidekick II.

    The Sidekick II runs on the proprietary Hiptop OS, which is designed with a unique wheel-shaped menu for easy selection of applications and functions. The device is built with a total of 48 MB of internal memory.

    Calling Features
    The Sidekick II's phone book can hold up to a whopping 2000 contacts with multiple entries per contact. A call list remembers your most recent missed, received and dialed calls. The device also features a speakerphone for easy handsfree talking. Polyphonic ringtones with up to 16 chords are included and more ringtones can be downloaded from T-Mobile's t-zones service. Picture caller ID lets you assign a photo to specific callers. Similarly, a ringer ID lets you assign ringtones to callers. For those times you want to keep things discreet, there's a vibrate ringer mode.

    Messaging, Internet and Tools
    The Sidekick II covers all your messaging needs with support for text messaging and multimedia messaging (MMS) with images, sounds and pictures. When used in combination with the phone's built-in camera, MMS opens up a whole new world of messaging fun. If instant messaging is your thing, you can use the Sidekick II's built-in AOL Instant Messenger application to chat with buddies anywhere. Yahoo Messenger is also available via T-Mobile's application download service (T-Mobile messaging charges apply for text and instant messaging, unlimited messaging included in Sidekick data plan). AutoText word completion, which is a technology that makes it easier for people to enter words and text on handsets, is built into the unit-- a plus for mobile email and text messaging users.

    If you want email on the go, the Sidekick II has you covered there, as well. You can have email from up to three of your personal accounts sent directly to your Sidekick II and browse the Web the way it was meant to be with the device's embedded browser. Plus, surf T-Mobile's t-zones service, which offers news headlines, weather updates, game and ringtone downloads, and more.

    The Sidekick ships with a number of handy tools, including a calendar with up to 1000 event entries, an alarm that can be set to notify you of calendar events and a to-do list. These tools can be synchronized with Microsoft Outlook via the Sidekick II's USB data connection or wirelessly via the Sidekick II's Intellisync technology. Intellisync is a unique web-based application that runs on any PC with a web browser. It allows you to view and update your calendar and contacts information and then upload them to your Sidekick II wirelessly. You can even view all the photos on your Sidekick II in gallery format. All of your data is stored remotely, so if your Sidekick is ever lost or stolen (gasp!) your data is safe and accessible.

    The Sidekick II allows you to send and receive virtual contact cards (vCards). vCards are a great way to easily save and share contact information with friends and colleagues. Lastly, if you need to find the keyhole after a night on the town, the Sidekick II has a mini LED flashlight.

    Imaging and Entertainment
    The Sidekick II has fun in its soul. Snap photos and share them with your friends via messaging or email, or via your online Intellisync gallery. The camera features a night mode for getting good shots in low-light situations.

    One game, Rock and Rocket, ships with the Sidekick II, and more are available via the t-zones service.

    Vital Statistics
    The Sidekick II weighs 6.49 ounces and measures 5.12 x 2.60 x 0.87 inches. Its lithium-ion battery is rated at up to 4.5 hours of digital talk time, and up to 60 hours of digital standby time. It runs on the GSM/GPRS 900/1800/1900 frequencies. The phone comes with a one year limited warranty.

    4-0 out of 5 stars amazon charges way too much
    first of all, i have owned this phone, and it's great for instant messaging and text messaging. however, web access is pretty slow, so if that's your main reason for buying, i suggest you look elsewhere. the camera is bad too, even by camera phone standards.

    5-0 out of 5 stars I cant wait to get this phone
    Im 15 years old wanting to get a pre-pay T-mobile sidekick for myself . I been saving up money for one but I still need about a $180 more until I can get one. This phone is awsome and cool.I cant wait to get my.

    5-0 out of 5 stars I can't wait!!!!!!!!!
    I currently have a nextel i730 and my contract ends in september. I am definetly getting the sidekick but i have to get the prepaid since i don't use a lot of minutes. This phone is the best though for young people my age! I come here everyday to look at its features. I can't wait to get this phone!!!

    I'm so excited. If you want the ULTIMATE COMMUNICATION DEVICE as they say get this!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Awsome phone!
    I'm not sure what the deal is, but amazon went from 150 to 200, and now to 370$. WOW.
    Well this phone is awsome!
    It is not good, for long conversations, cause talking on it, is a bit odd......
    Internet is pretty fast , when you diable pictures, I use to for yahoo and sports scores mostly.
    AIM, is lightening fast..Just as quick as my home computer.
    Comes with one free rocket game that is terrible.. other games cost like 5$. Great ring tones, 2$ a piece..even though there is a bad selection (about 200 songs/sound effects/alerts)....When set to loudest ring volume, its super loud!. (good for using as alarm clock..)

    5$ for alarm clock time traveler, but its awsome. You can set tons of alarms ... Your (PRE) sleep button.
    The camera, is good for daytime photos. No use to even try it at night, or inside dark resturants/bars. The flash is almost useless. stores 36 pictures...but you can just email them out in seconds., so you really dont need to store them.....
    I havnt set up my mail, but it looks cool...
    Some people complain about SPEAKER PHONE volume, its not that bad, it could be louder.
    ADRESS BOOK IS SO EASY TO SET UP...and stores everything!
    THIS PHONE CAN DO EVERYTHING FOR U ! (notes,to do sections)
    Typing is really easy, the key pad is just the right size, I've dropped it 2x so far, and everythings fine.

    5-0 out of 5 stars review..
    I have a Nokia 1100 Tracfone that saves me quite a bit of money from the monthly contracts i used to have with Cingular cellphone service. Tracfones are ideal for people with light or medium cellphone usage, so it works out well for me. The tracfone website is user friendly and makes it easy to perform functions such as activation, information gathering, or additional purchases. I got a referral from a friend before i activated, which got me 100 free minutes. Since then i have referred a neighbor's tracfone. I paid an extra $10. and got the car charger that just plugs into the cigarette lighter if the tracfone battery gets low when i'm driving.
    I was pleasantly surprised to find some extras included free of charge on my tracfone- 2 games, a good selection of ringtones, a calculator, and voice mail. The main downside that i've seen is that you have to be disciplined in your tracfone usage unless you're prepared to buy more airtime/minutes cards. These range in price from $20. to $130. Overall, i'm quite happy with the tracfone.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Tracfone has no customer service :(
    I have had one TERRIBLE experience with Tracfone that has lasted over a month.I ordered the Motorola v60 and year card on special for $139.98.When I got the phone I had difficulty activating it, called in and was told I was sent the wrong technology phone.I was sent a TDMA phone and my area is a CDMA.Sent phone back and I had to pay for shipping out of my pocket.Got a second phone, still the wrong phone.Sent that phone back, and now more shipping costs out of my pocket.So I waited a few more days, no contact saying they were sending another phone, so I sent in an email saying I am canceling my order.The following week another phone showed up - this time I refused the package and called in to customer service again.I was told I purchased the phone card and there is no refunds on the cards.Today I finally discovered a web site that lists some very interesting information on Tracfone.http://www.bestfrauds.com/tracfone2.html.With the information at this web site I was able to contact the correct person directly (Executive Resolution Department Manager 1-800-339-9345) and was told I will receive a fill refund with in 5 business days.I will not recommend Tracfone to any one, their customer service is terrible and I wish I would have found and read this web site above before I made the purchase; it would have saved me a ton of grief.I had Virgin Mobile and they are wonderful, but offer no coverage in my current location.I will now try T-mobile, with better luck (at lease their customer. service is open 24hrs, major +++)

    5-0 out of 5 stars tracfone...
    I like my Tracfone so far. Mine is small and has good reception. It's also nice that they let the unused minutes carry over month to month without ever taking them away.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Tracfone is the way to go
    If you don't want to spend a lot of money each month for a plan that makes you sign up for two years, try Tracfone. After I started it, many of my workmates and friends have switched to Tracfone. If you decide it is not for you, all you have lost is the actual purchase price of the phone and the minutes that come with it, still less than what you pay to the likes of Verizon each month. (...)Please keep in mind that Tracfones won't work in Canada or anywhere outside the US.

    The tracfones are good for people who don't require heavy cell phone usage. Basically you have to keep the phone active by buying month or year cards. If you run out of minutes then you have to buy more of those too.

    5-0 out of 5 stars great phone
    The Motorola T120 is not going to win any design awards, but it is really one of the best phones I have ever used from a practical perspective, which is what counts. The durability is far superior to the flimsy flip phones that currently saturate the market. Battery life is also outstanding.

    4-0 out of 5 stars works for me
    This is a good option for the light user.I only carry it so my kids can reach me in case of emergencies or for very brief calls or messages.It's been fine, and in my area the coverage has been good even inside large buildings.I have used it on longer trips too and found the roaming reception fine. I bought the 1 year card and got 100 free bonus minutes through a promotional deal online.I have had no problems activating the phone, adding minutes, setting up voicemail, etc.I have not had any reason to deal with customer service, so can't speak to that.For me it's been a reliable, affordable option as a person who doesn't use a cell phone enough to warrant a monthly service plan.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great phone and service
    My family loves their tracfone we have a total of 3 tracfones. I love being free from contracts and monthly bills. (...)

    4-0 out of 5 stars A good, basic mobile phone.
    I purchased this phone for my wife as an anniversary gift earlier this year. Thus far we are very pleased with it. Keep in mind: this is a PHONE. If you're looking for something that will allow you to play games, chat with friends, and browse the Internet, you need something else (like a PDA/phone). As a phone this is a nice product.

    First, the phone itself: very nice. It is well-built, and we feel that the screen is easy to read. Sound quality is good, and when listening to someone using this phone they sound good as well.

    Some people gripe about the keypad's lack of raised keys and poor backlighting. This has not been a problem for us. The keys aren't raised, but this has never caused us discomfort. The backlighting could be better, but it isn't difficult at all to dial without looking--the key layout is the same on every touch-tone phone, so this isn't foreign territory. Use of the phone's software is straightforward for the most part, although there are some things that are confusing, and the manual is no help.

    As for the prepaid phone service, make sure you do your research. We selected T-Mobile because the pricing options were more in-line with what our use would be. Text messages are free to receive, which is great, because instead of calling my wife to tell her something (and using airtime) I can send her a text message via e-mail, which she can read (using no airtime).

    Thus far, where we are (Oakland, Livermore, Silicon Valley, CA) and where we go, coverage has been great.

    If you need a basic mobile phone and don't plan to do a lot of talking, this is an excellent option.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Worst coverage of any phone I've had.
    I had this phone and tmobile service. Like the reviewer before me, I had no signal 90 percent of the time. Tmobile has no roaming for their prepaid.The phone was useless. On the bright side, I found a prepaid phone that not only has coverage were I need it but, because of all their roaming agreements, the phone has coverage in more places than any phone I've had previously. Inow have a motorola v60i with Tracfone. I can roam on many different providers.I purchased a year card so my phone is paid up for a whole year! Before I switched to tracfone, I read online from someones post that If you get what Tracfone calls a "Referral", before you activate your tracfone, you get 100 free minutes when you activate. I had someone email me one and it worked great! That beats any company I've had thus far. sunnyryanj is my yahoo address and you may request a referral from me if you decide on tracfone. Choose wisely, What good is a phone if you never get good reception on it? Don't waste money like I did. I've had all these prepaid services;Verizon prepay,cellular one, virgin mobile, boost mobile,Tmobile and now tracfone. None of the others allows the roaming that tracfone does. And most don't have the year card service, most erase your minutes every month!
    Learn from my mistakes.

    1-0 out of 5 stars No Roaming Available
    Horrible plan for PrePaid Cell phone.As I went through my state of Wisconsin, I had no signal 95% of the time.On the T-Mobile PrePaid phones, they do not have roaming!!Not a good investment!!Stay away from T-Mobile - Very Deceiving!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Much Better than Verizon
    I couldn't be happier with this lightweight and thoroughly useful device. I wanted a simply pre-paid phone with good coverage and reception. It delivers this in spades.

    The features, such as instant access to the lates news and sports is wonderful. The keys and menus are logically laid out and very easy to learn.

    I first tried a phone from Verizon Wireless that was an unmitigated disaster. The differences between the two plans and the phones couldn't be more stark.

    I heartily recommend this phone and T-Mobile's pre-paid plan.

    5-0 out of 5 stars info.
    The tracfones are good for people who don't require heavy cell phone usage. Basically you have to keep the phone active by buying month or year cards. If you run out of minutes then you have to buy more of those too.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Birthday present for my oldest.
    This was my second Tracfone purchase. It is for my eldest son. He requested this model because it has no antenna and he was afraid an antenna would break off.[...] I think I may purchase one for myself next.I was suprised how good the signal is on this phone even though it has no antenna! thanks again amazon!

    5-0 out of 5 stars emergency phone
    This phone and service is good for people who don't use a cell phone all the time, great for emergencies. It is great for anyone who doesn't want long term contracts and a monthly cell phone bill. (...)

    1-0 out of 5 stars Worst company I've ever dealt with
    The basic premise for Tracfone is solid, and in general they provide a needed alternative to the big wireless carriers and their expensive monthly plans.They also seem to have solid wireless coverage by selling a variety of phones that work on different technologies (TDMA, CDMA, GSM).But, if you ever have to deal with them on a problem with your phone, and you need to return your phone for whatever reason, good luck.I originally purchased a reconditioned Nokia 2285, and the battery would not hold a charge.I sent it back.They sent me a Nokia 1221 as a replacement.I sent it back (not the phone I purchased).I pleaded with them to send me the 2285 (I wanted a CDMA phone that had a vibrate feature - the 1221 is TDMA and has no vibrate).They sent one, but the back did not stay on.I sent it back.The sent me another 1221.I sent it back, this time with the postage paid by them - not in compensation units.I pleaded with them again to send a 2285; they promised they would.They sent me another 1221.The reason?In my area, there are more TDMA towers, so that was the phone THEY (the warehouse) felt I should have.They told me that the 2285 did not work in my area, even though I confirmed that it would before the purchase and, in fact, it worked fine while the battery was charged.After dealing with numerous supervisors, who promised they would call me with information on my case but never did, I decided I'm done.I'm accepting delivery of the wrong phone and selling it to the highest bidder on ebay and I'm done with Tracfone.

    Yes, they gave me compensation minutes for all my trouble (didn't come close to the amount of aggravation), and the CSRswere generally curteous (their customer service centers are somewhere outside of the US - South America?), but when they tried to give me compensation minutes for a phone I did not want, I almost gave up.After the third wrong phone, I gave up.It's next to impossible to speak to a supervisor; I had to force the issue to get what I wanted.Even with the help of supervisors, they could not send the correct phone.There is also no way to reach anyone in their corporate office to complain.There is no accountability with them.I suppose that as long as you don't have to interface with customer service for anything, you are okay, because they plug into the wireless networks of all the major players.But if I can't even get an exchange for the correct phone, there is something very wrong with they way they do business.Go with other prepaid options if that's what you're looking for, but stay away from Tracfone.

    With support for Virgin Mobile's "VirginXL" wireless content services, a VGA camera with flash, dual displays and a speakerphone, the 8910 Flasher V7 is a great mobile companion. Get the most out of your Virgin Mobile service with this powerful phone.

    Design
    The phone features a traditional clamshell design with a 128 x 160 TFT color display with 65,000 colors. The rear of the flip-up cover houses a camera that can snap shots at 640 x 480 resolution, also known as VGA resolution. There's also a small 95 x 64 secondary black and white LCD display on the back of the cover that displays incoming call information, network signal strength and more. Most camera features and on-screen menus are controlled by a five-way center button on the handset's control pad. Meanwhile, the top right side of the unit houses an extendable antenna while data and charging ports are housed on the unit's bottom edge.

    Calling Features
    The Flasher V7 has all the latest calling features folks have come to expect. The phone comes with built-in Virgin Mobile "superphonic" ringtones plus a vibrating alert. Superphonic ringtones feature real music tracks and more are available via Virgin Mobile's VirginXL service. Ringtones can be assigned to specific callers so you don't have to look at the phone to know who's calling. The built-in speakerphone makes it easy to talk without having the phone to your ear and voice activated dialing makes calling your friends, family and associates as easy as saying their names. There's also a built-in address book that can store up to 300 contacts for quick and easy management of phone numbers and email addresses.

    Messaging and Internet
    The Flasher V7 covers the messaging basics with support for sending and receiving text and picture messages. T9 text entry, which is a technology that makes it easier for people to enter words and text on handsets, is built into the unit-- a plus for mobile email and text messaging users.

    The phone fully supports Virgin Mobile's enhanced wireless content service, VirginXL. Use the pay-per-use service to download superphonic ringtones, animations and voices from MTV, Comedy central and the hottest recording artists. Get content and vote in TV-based polls via the MTV area of your phone, or get jokes and updates from Comedy Central. Pick a celebrity voice to answer your voicemail, or get a Sponge Bob thought of the day. Need to jog your memory? Use Virgin's wacky song ID service. Press the Song ID command, point your Flasher V7 towards a song that's playing in the room, and within minutes a text message appears identifying the song's title. There's even a "Rescue Rings" service to help get you out of sticky dating or other personal situations. The list of cool content features goes on and on.

    The Flasher V7 ships with a number of handy tools including a calendar, a calculator and an alarm clock. A voice memo feature lets you record clips up to 60 seconds in length.

    Imaging and Entertainment
    The Flasher V7's VGA camera makes it easier than ever to snap good pictures and share them with friends via picture messaging. The camera features a built-in flash for getting great shots in low-light situations. The phone boasts custom Virgin Mobile graphics-- screen savers, wallpaper and menu icons-- that let you dress up your phone to suit your personality. More graphics, wallpapers and screensavers are available from the VirginXL service. One game, a demo version of Snood, is included with the phone, and a big selection of additional games can be downloaded from the VirginXL service.

    Vital Statistics
    The Audiovox 8910 Flasher V7 weighs 3.7 ounces and measures 3.9 x 1.8 x 0.9 inches. Its lithium-ion battery is rated at up to 3.17 hours of digital talk time, and up to 140 hours of digital standby time. It runs on the CDMA 1900 frequency. The phone comes with a one year limited warranty.

    5-0 out of 5 stars VM V7 Flasher is a nice next step, phone wise for VM!!!!!
    I have had my V7 Flasher for over a month now, and i love it.I dont talk much on it, but if i go out i know i have a line for people to get a hold of me.The camera was the main draw for me, the XL content is also a nice up grade for this phone to.Since it uses the Sprint PCS net work i have coverage almost every place i have been, with is nice because i have family in a different state so traveling is not issue.

    This phone is great, I really like the camara and the LCD screen but from a 3rd party review the speakers are really low. The games and Virgin XL is great and ringtones sound awsome. The service is all about You and its really good for people buying their first cell phone or do not have 2nd o r 3rd jobs just to support their talking.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Good Phone, not so great plan
    i am 14 years old and this is my first phone, i have had it for about 5 months and have been very happy.

    the phone

    Pros-
    desigined for teen usage, good graphics

    camera is surprisingly good, nice customizations such as colorful borders, zoom, brightness, image effect, quality and contrast.

    menu is very colorful- a pleasure to the eye

    good functions such as voice recording, calculator, alarm, stopwatch, schedular and world clock

    flash is somewhat useful

    easy to use messaging- t9 (easy to get used to) funny emoticons,

    can put on silencer by holding down *

    easy to top up, etc...

    VxL is nice, however expensive, nice ringtones, the ones which try tosound like the song however are crap

    the purchasable graphics are very nice at 1.50 apiece, however you can just use pictures as your background

    contacts- very easy to personalize (personal ringtone, picture, and message tone,

    security- can lock your phone so no one can place a call, go on the browser, look at recent calls, look at pictures, or contacts without entering a password (good for nosy friends)

    Cons-

    the ringer is kind of quiet, however if you are a teen and this is one of your first phones it won't bother you because you can hear it

    kind of bulky feeling, but understandable because of all of the features

    service

    pros

    cheap text messaging, (10 cents to send free to receive)

    cons

    much more worth it to get a monthly plan, $40 at a monthly plan buys you anywhere from 450 to 600 mins (15-20 minutes per day)however $40at virgin mobile buys you 160 minutes or around5 to 6 minutes perday, and if your buying it to spend less money than a plan (say 30 dollars- 120 minutes a day) thats 4 minutes perday.

    5-0 out of 5 stars good phone
    This phone is excellent. Of course, it is he best of all the virgin mobile phones for many reasons. A few include, it has a camera, picture messaging, a flash for the camera, and Virgin XL. I would recommend this phone to any virgin mobile user.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great Phone, Best Performance!
    I bought this phone several months ago because my old (...)cell phone had no reception in the office where I work. I choose this phone because it has an exceptionally high rating for performance on the CNET cell phone reviews (...). This one has at least half the bars all the time and it has never lost signal where ever I have taken, including places where most other phones don't work, even in a basement! It is also a very loud phone with a brightly lit color screen. Although the screen resolution is a little lower than the more expensive models, it is easy to read.

    It comes with all the basic features including some nice ones such as wallpapers and screensavers and a nifty feature called timed profiles which means that you set your ring tone and alert preferences and they will revert to normal at a time that you specify. It also includes a basic organizer and comes loaded with 4 games (Sky Diver, Backgammon, Bowling and Air Glide). You can download additional ring tones and graphics but the prepaid plan does not support game downloads. By default it comes loaded with a nice variety of ring tones and most users will find one that appeals to them. Yahoo!, MSN, AOL and ICQ instant messengers are also included.

    The keyboard layout is rather strange and that is the only real shortcoming of this phone. However, once you get used to it, it is not a bother. Overall, this is a great little phone which offers exceptional performance and all the basic features. I bought it directly from the T-Mobile website where it was selling for less, so you may want to check the price there before buying. T-Mobile recently increased the minutes that you get from some of the prepaid cards and lowered the limit for Gold Rewards program participation to $100 which makes it an even better deal.

    2-0 out of 5 stars I wasn't that impressed with signal strength
    I had this phone with Tmobile. I didn't get signal in a number of areas. My keypad became faulty after 3 months and I couldn't dial certain numbers.My friend had a tracfone and got signal in way more places than I did.(he has the v60i-cdma vers.) I bought a tracfone, had him send me a referral through tracfones promotional referral deal, activated the phone and got 100 free minutes for the referral.I'll send you one if you think you are going to get a tracfone instead,just email me(before you activate phone!). I have the v60i now too and I'm so much happier with it. They also have GSM phones, nokia 1100 and 2600.

    3-0 out of 5 stars 3 1/2 Stars...And it's Not Bad
    I got this phone free when I signed up for Cingular almost 2 years ago.It's not a bad phone.The ringer can be very loud if you don't set it to the lower volume, which can be a plus if you're in a noisy area, but a minus if you work in an office!

    My biggest complaint is because it's not a "flip" type phone, if I have the phone in my purse, it tends to get hit very easily on the number pad and ends up calling a speed dial that I've programmed...not good when someone is listening to you and you don't know it! :0)

    It's a little bulky since they can make phones so thin now, but overall, especially since I didn't pay anything for it, I'd give it high marks as far as cell phones go.I don't need a lot of "extra" gadgets, so if they're missing from this phone, I don't miss them.

    5-0 out of 5 stars T-Mobile Nokia 3595 Prepaid Phone
    The phone is great and the sound is EXCEPTIONALLY LOUD. If you were in an auditorium or movie theater and want to sneak a game in with the volume at its LOWEST, forget it! Keep this phone in silent mode if you don't want to be embarassed - at the same time, now that the audio quality is pretty good. Reception-wise, the phone can only be as good as the service will let it and within the Washington DC Metero area, I would say that it is a notch below Sprint. Don't expect it to work in every building you go into even if other carriers do. Blame it on coverage, though, not the phone itself.

    Amazon.com Product Description

    The 8610, a Virgin Mobile exclusive, features a large color display, a speakerphone, support for Virgin Mobile wireless Internet services, and much more. This sporty companion keeps you in step with the latest mobile technologies at a great price.

    Design
    The phone features a traditional clamshell design with a large 128 x 128 color display with 65,000 colors. A monochrome 96 x 64 pixel supplementary display on the outside of the cover displays incoming call information, battery life, signal strength, graphics and more.Most of the phone's features and on-screen menus are controlled by a five-way center button on the handset's backlit control pad. Meanwhile, the top right side of the unit houses an extendable antenna while the combined charging/USB data port is housed on the unit's bottom edge. The phone also features a standard jack to accept universal hands-free headsets. Up/down keys are located on the left side of the unit for quick volume control.

    Calling Features
    The 8610's built-in address book can store up to 300 entries for quick and easy management of your contacts. The phone comes with built-in Virgin Mobile "superphonic" ringtones plus a vibrating alert. Superphonic ringtones feature real music tracks and more are available via Virgin Mobile's VirginXtras service. Ringtones can be assigned to specific callers so you don't have to look at the phone to know who's calling. A built-in speakerphone lets you talk handsfree while you're on the go.

    Messaging, Internet and Tools
    The 8610 covers the messaging basics with support for sending and receiving text messages easily and quickly (Virgin Mobile text messaging charges apply). T9 text entry, which is a technology that makes it easier for people to enter words and text on handsets, is built into the unit-- a plus for mobile email and text messaging users.

    The phone fully supports Virgin Mobile's wireless content service, VirginXtras. Use the pay-per-use service to download superphonic ringtones from Hip Hop songs to movie themes. Get content and vote in TV-based polls via the MTV area of your phone, or get jokes and updates from Comedy Central. Pick a celebrity voice to answer your voicemail, or get a Sponge Bob thought of the day. Need to jog your memory? Use Virgin's wacky song ID service. Press the Song ID command, point your 8610 towards a song that's playing in the room, and within minutes a text message appears identifying the song's title.

    The 8610 ships with a number of handy tools including a calendar, a calculator and an alarm clock.

    Imaging and Entertainment
    The 8610 features custom Virgin Mobile graphics-- screen savers, wallpaper and menu icons-- that let you dress up your phone to suit your personality. Two pre-loaded games come with the phone, Blackjack and Magic Hexa.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Can be good but can be disappointing
    The Virginmobile payment non-plan plan can be good for those who use a mobile phone infrequently, which I do.It could be terrible for those who use it most days. After getting used to the interface, this can be a likeable phone.If you happen to be where the signal is strong, clarity can be excellent.However, even well within the service area I have had weak signals and broken calls. That's not surprising in the building where I work.It is surprising in my apartment. The voice volume is low, even when set to level 5.It can be fine in quiet surroundings, but it's a struggle to hear in moderately noisy environments.
    There are no roaming fees, because there is normally no connectivity outside Sprint's digital service area.According to the manual 911 calls can connect in the roaming areas. I have not tested this.
    Battery life is disappointing.In standby the 1000mAH battery supplied is only good for about two days between charges.I bought the optional 1700mAH battery from Audiovox.It's twice as thick as the standard battery, and it extends standby to three days between charges.
    The minimal features of this phone don't bother me, but deficient signal strength, volume, and battery life make me covet a real phone from another company.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great phone, BEST COMPANY I've joined with so far.
    Hey I'm Rebecca (rcitykitty)
    That other review above about the "warning of the customer service" is ridiculous. Once I had my phone stolen and customer service helped me through it, were quick in replying to my order for a new phone, and even paid for the minutes the thief used! It's the best customer service I've seen for any company, hands down. This phone has great features, and cool ringtones. It's a great deal for it's price and it has cool color screen backgrounds. I would give this phone the best rating possible!

    4-0 out of 5 stars Pleased So Far...
    This phone and Virgin Mobile as a whole are obviously targeting an age group other than my own. Quite frankly, I don't care. I dropped traditional land-based phone service in February, and went with AT&T CallVantage VOIP service instead...a tremendous savings, but when the power goes out, VOIP phone service goes as well. Also, with CallVantage as of this date, 911 calls do not provide the answering call center with your phone number and location automatically.

    The Audiovox 8610 phone, coupled with Virgin Mobile, seemed like an inexpensive supplement to CallVantage, filling some very unpleasant gaps...and E911 service is provided. Features such as speed dial, caller ID, and even a speakerphone are included, and I'm extremely pleased with the voice quality. It's almost indistinguishable from a corded phone.

    For the age bracket that this phone is marketed towards, there are also two games included, and several wallpaper designs. A ton of downloadable ringtones are available at the Virgin website, provided that you don't mind spending $2.00 to $2.50 apiece for them...want to hear the "Meow Mix" ad when a call comes in? It's available for download at the Virgin website, as are ringtones involving such oddities as bodily functions, none of which will be discussed in detail here.

    Per minute pricing is high enough to keep me from ever using this phone other than when it is absolutely necessary (25 cents for the first 10 minutes each day, 10 cents per minute afterwards), but that's okay with me. Unexpected emergencies were the sole reason for making the purchase, and the added peace of mind that it brings more than makes up for the airtime that must be purchased from Virgin every 90 days to keep the service active...and I'm still saving money each month over traditional phone service.

    I would recommend the Audiovox 8610 phone and Virgin Wireless to anyone who needs a cell phone for similar reasons.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Vos 8610
    Great phone.....virgin mobile service can be a little better...however, I guess that is sprint's problem.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Great but eeehhhh
    This is a great phone if your looking for the flip style, or a coloured screen, but the only problem with Virgin is ringtones cost up to $2 and the real sound ringtones are distorted. And The minutes go up like Wildfire.

    Try finding this phone through another company. May I suggest Tracfone? They have a new phone with colored monitor, however its not a flip. ... Read more

    This phone has great downloads and already has cool stuff on it when you buy it.it is very light and very very durable.the outside is sort of rubberized which helps you grip the phone better. this phone is also pretty small.it is a good deal. the camera is great and has good pictures in low light areas.

    I think this phone is great. It has a great camera, color screen, speakerphone, and the list goes on and on. However, I'm not a big fan of T-Mobile due to their coverage (you might wan't to make sure the coverage is in your area). T-Mobile is not good for me because I do alot of travling.

    Amazon.com Hands-On Review

    The Nokia 6800 with T-Mobile To Go service is the hassle-free way to stay connected. No long-term contract. No credit check. No deposits or monthly bills. Just get your phone and go!

    About the Nokia 6800

    The Nokia 6800 is simply a phone made for text input. The basic looking phone hides a full QWERTY keyboard (though obviously with smaller keys than you're used to) under the numeric keypad. Just flip it up and turn the device 90¼ to use the keyboard. Its unique design is only featured on the 6800 series and offers the largest full keyboard of any consumer level mobile phone in the US. The only problem with the keyboard is that because it's quite wide, it's hard to handle with one hand. If you want to jot a text message while walking, you'll have better luck by using predictive text on the numerical keypad. While sitting down, or stationary, the keyboard is very hard to beat.


    It's hard to beat the Nokia 6800 keyboard's ease of use.

    Besides the hidden keyboard, features of the Nokia 6800 include:

    • POP3 / IMAP4 email
    • WAP 2.0 web browser
    • 128x128 color screen
    • FM radio
    Basics

    Even though the Nokia 6800 is made for text, it does a great job at voice. Call quality is excellent and dropped calls should be few and far between. It has the standard Nokia series 40 operating system that should be familiar to users of past Nokia models. A joystick in the middle below the screen serves as the main navigation tool. When the keyboard is flipped out it makes using the joystick slightly awkward, since it's to the side of the screen.

    Data

    The Nokia 6800 ties in very easily with your existing email account and it even supports IMAP which is email technology that keeps email in sync across multiple devices (your phone and computer for instance). It doesn't have fully push email like a BlackBerry, but you can set email to be automatically checked at short intervals. Text and data plans from T-Mobile USA are some of the most affordable in the industry, which is a good thing since you will find yourself using these services a lot.


    The Nokia 6800 opens to reveal a full QWERTY keyboard under the numeric keypad.
    Other features

    Like other phones with a built-in radio, the Nokia 6800 uses the wired handsfree unit as an antenna. This means you'll have to plug-in the handsfree before the radio will work, which is a minor inconvenience. The screen is large enough to handle most mobile web content, such as sports scores and weather information. Since the 6800 has GPRS, it downloads data at about the same speed as a dial-up internet connection. Java MIDP 1.0 support is included, so all sorts of applications can be installed. A currency converter, portfolio manager and two games come pre-installed. Custom ring tones can be downloaded in various formats, including MIDI.

    Measurements and specs

    The Nokia 6800 weighs 4.3 ounces and measures4.69" x 2.17" x 0.91". It's a little longer than most phones out there, but having a full keyboard more than makes up for it. The lithium-ion battery is rated at up to 4.5 hours of talk time, and up to 10 days of standby time, but the numbers will vary depending on your usage pattern. It's a dual band GSM 800 / GSM 1900 handset.

    In the Box

    Nokia 6800 cell phone, 1000 mah Li-Ion battery, rapid travel charger, mono boom headset, SIM card.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Great tiny phone; just one problem.
    This is a tiny phone; it fits in a pocket very well. The sound quality is great, and people can hear me well. The "Shorty" is a great little phone (with the exception of the screen--it's difficult to read the time of day display). I particularly like the loudspeaker feature, which enables me to put the phone down next to me while driving and hear and be heard well.It's easy to navigate through all the features, although it might be more difficult for someone with bigger fingers; I use my thumbnail to push the buttons.Easy to find out my balance, too.I just use the phone for making and receiving calls and not for the downloadable features and games, so I haven't tried all those.The existing ringtones are I suspect aimed at a younger crowd--they sound kind of hip hop.They also sound kind of tinny.But, as I said, I'm using it mainly for a low-use phone; so this didn't discourage me.

    What did discourage me was the one little problem:My particular phone has a little problem of powering off on its own without warning every few days--even with a full battery charge. So I'm walking around with a phone that is not on thinking I can receive emergency calls when actually I can't, because it has spontaneously turned itself off. Nothing I do gets it to turn back on.It is just dead. I figured out I just remove the battery and put it back in (which the trouble shooting page on the nokiausa website confirmed), and this enables me to turn it back on. I find this unacceptable in a phone and am returning it. Virgin Mobile customer service was kind and polite and offered to give me a new "Shorty," but I declined, because I found the minutes disappearing too fast with the Virgin Mobile prepaid plan.I believe, because they start counting off your time the second you push send when you make a call.So, you are paying for the 15 or 20 seconds it takes your party's voice mail to connect AND the message you leave on his or her voicemail.This adds up.Had I not been unimpressed with the Virgin Mobile plan, I probably would have taken them up on the replacement offer, because I really like the phone.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Big Features in a Little Package
    This is a nice, sleek looking phone from a simple pay as you go wireless provider.Virgin Mobile uses the SPRINT PCS network and charges you as follows...$.025 a minute for the first 10 minutes of the day, then $0.10 a minute after that.Or, $0.10 a minute plus $0.35 a day.You pay $0.10 per text message you send and it is free to receive them.You must top off your account at least $20 every 90 days to keep your account active, but you keep the minutes you have already purchased.If you don't use your phone a lot your looking at $6.66 a month for a cell phone.How simple is that?No other hidden fees involved.

    The Nokia 2115i is the smallest Nokia I have ever seen.It stands less than 4" tall, less than 1.5" from side to side and less than 3/4" thick.There are limited accessories for it at this time because it is new to the market.You can send and receive text from other phones or email addresses.There are tons of downloadable stuff from the web site as well.Other features include a speaker phone, built in flashlight, voice dialing, voice memo recording, games and more.Anytime your curious about how much money you have left in your account, you can check your balance right on the phone.It takes about 5 seconds for the account information to be zapped back to you in a text message.You can also access your account on the web site.

    If your like me who got tired of spending over $50 a month for cell phone minutes I never used, this is for you.I like the convenience of having a phone, but do not have a need to have it glued to my ear all day.Virgin Mobile pay as you go is simple and in my case money saving.Not to mention this particular phone is about the most stylish Nokia they make.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Love it!
    This super compact phone is great!, It is not a sophisticated model, great for people who needs just a phone. Although it's quality is great, and has many features I didn't expect it to have such as the loudspeaker (and more things), which works great! I love the phone, it's compact I can carry it on my pockets, lightweight and doesn't look cheap; also the service at virgin is much better than tracfone, I am glad I switched, cause their phones are crap too.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Lousy performance
    The problem with Virgin phones is they use the Sprint network.It's highly unusual that I don't get a dropped call or someone complaining that I'm cutting out real bad.I work very close to the Sprint campus and tower.I can't even stand outside in the parking lot and call across the street without the other person saying I'm cutting out.Don't be a sucker--choose a better phone.

    5-0 out of 5 stars The most awesome Virgin Mobile phone around!
    I just bought this phone for my boyfriend and he never had one so he absolutely LOVED it. ^.^ Personally, I thought it was pretty cool as well. I mean blue and black and red and pink are my favorite colors and it's a bargain to have the screening BLUE!! Before I sent it to him (Long distance relationsip), I was playing with it and it's SOOOOO cool. Currently, I have a Camera Virgin Mobile phone and i'd trade it for the one I gave him..hmm better check up on that!

    ....I would recommend Tracfone to anyone who wants to get away from cell phone contracts.Tracfone has been reviewed as a phone for the occasional user, but... I own one. ;-)I use my phone alot, [...] Tracfone's customer service has been complained about, but I've used them once and they got my problem solved.The only problem was that they sounded foreign (no disrepect 2 anyone)-- so I had to really listen to every word to make sure I knew what they were saying (a lil' communication barrier).

    That aside, I've had an awesome time with Tracfone's service, and I'm sure you will, too! :) [...]

    4-0 out of 5 stars Great and inexpensive for occasional use
    I got two Nokia 2285 Tracfones for my wife and me after looking at the alternative of spending around $70 each month including taxes for the next two years with a Verizon contract (plus activation fees etc.). So far everything works great. Despite all the negative comments on the internet I found their customer service to be prompt, friendly and helpful. Yes, they have an accent, but so do I... Activation through the webpage is easy, although a little lengthy with dozens of numbers to type into the phone. I got a referral from a friend, which is worth 100 minutes and 2 months of service. I "referred" my wife's phone after activating mine, which gave us another 100 minutes and 2 months of service each. So we ended up with two phones which can remain active for the next 6-8 months and a few hundred minutes each, all for less than what I would have spent at Verizon every month.
    I like the fact that you only pay 2 minutes per minute when roaming (roaming means you are outside of your normal calling area, around 50 miles from home depending on where you live), while a friend of mine recently complained about paying several dollars per minute when roaming on her 2-year-plan phone. With Tracfone there are never any surprises. Also calls of less than 15 seconds are always free, great for busy signals or when you just want to check if it works.
    Tracfone does not have coverage outside of the US. This is why I gave it four stars. It would be nice to be able to use it in Canada.
    Hope this helps.

    The tracfones are good for people who don't require heavy cell phone usage. Basically you have to keep the phone active by buying month or year cards. If you run out of minutes then you have to buy more of those too. (...)

    I like my Tracfone so far. Mine is small and has good reception. The tracfones are good for people who don't require heavy cell phone usage. Basically you have to keep the phone active by buying month or year cards. If you run out of minutes then you have to buy more of those too.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Very good
    I have owned this Nokia Tracfone for four months and I'm very happy with it.


    The phone...

    The battery doesn't last as long as they say it does.I get about 72 hours on standby.I use it for emergencies and those times when I'm out and need to call home.I really like that you can enable GPS for 911 calls.A very good option for me.The display is very bright (doubles as a flashlight for me in a pinch) and the functions are easy to navigate.The built in games are cheesy, but fun when you're waiting and there's nothing else to do.

    Tracfone's service...

    I have no problems at all.Recently though, every time I send a text message the system sends me back one that says "message delivered" and it charges me .5 units for it.After a few wasted units, I learned not to choose "view" and to just choose exit and manually go to text messages where the first 10 characters are visible and delete it without paying for it.To me, they're just trying to force me to use a whole unit on sending one text instead of a half unit.Overall though, I find that I get the minutes I pay for and the service is A+ ...

Pick a celebrity voice to answer your voicemail, or get a Sponge Bob thought of the day. Need to jog your memory? Use Virgin's wacky song ID service. Press the Song ID command, point your Flasher V7 towards a song that's playing in the room, and within minutes a text message appears identifying the song's title. There's even a "Rescue Rings" service to help get you out of sticky dating or other personal situations. The list of cool content features goes on and on.

    The Flasher V7 ships with a number of handy tools including a calendar, a calculator and an alarm clock. A voice memo feature lets you record clips up to 60 seconds in length.

    Imaging and Entertainment
    The Flasher V7's VGA camera makes it easier than ever to snap good pictures and share them with friends via picture messaging. The camera features a built-in flash for getting great shots in low-light situations. The phone boasts custom Virgin Mobile graphics-- screen savers, wallpaper and menu icons-- that let you dress up your phone to suit your personality. More graphics, wallpapers and screensavers are available from the VirginXL service. One game, a demo version of Snood, is included with the phone, and a big selection of additional games can be downloaded from the VirginXL service.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Trusty little guy
    I've had this phone for over two years, travelling, dropping, and using it under lots of different situations.No back-light troubles or anything.

    The only reason it doesn't get a 5th star is that its reception is not the greatest.My wife has the Vox 8500 and the signal strength is consistently better on hers than mine.But still, it's never left me stranded.

    BTW, I got a chrome face-plate for mine and the blue light with the chrome surround still looks great!

    1-0 out of 5 stars Bad Buy
    I loved this phone, but the screen went blank after about 7 months and i could never read anything unless it showed up for a second, but i assumed this was becuz i had dropped it a few times so i went out and bought another... well about 7 months later again, the screen is blank, the backlight comes on and it works fine, good clearity during calls but no words on screen so i cant tell what i'm doing or who just called me or whatever... and the ringtones arent the greatest either... Now days, buying this phone is useless considering all the new and improved phones that come out every other day ...

    4-0 out of 5 stars A great phone!
    I have had mine for about three years now; they don't make them anymore and that made me feel obsolete.But I like this phone; easy to navigate, nice blue background and only needed features, no fluff stuff.I recently traded up to a new cell phone and plan and have given this one to my 15 year old son.It's got enough games and ringtones to keep him occupied with it for awhile.This is a very reliable little phone.I have not had anything happen to it such as fading or lines on the screen, etc. as other reviewers have.LOVE! LOVE! LOVE!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Lets Be Fair
    The thing I've noticed about cell phones is that they're a lot like shoes. Generally speaking you get what you pay for.
    That being said, it's important to remember why you're buying a cell phone. If you want a slick little number with a nice metalic casing, gameboy quality graphics, and a thousand and one features then no, this is not the phone for you.
    If say you're an active teenager, or someone who tends to lose and abuse cell phones and other small things that need to be carried at all times, or hitman that needs a nice throw away phone with someone elses name on it, then you've found your phone.
    The reception is great, the plan is simple and non-invasive, the features are few but ideal, and most of all it's just a good knock around phone. No, you're not going to have it forever. And NO, you're not going to be impressing the ladies with it. But if you're looking at any of the phones in this price range then it's highly likely that you already know how you're going to use it, and neither of these things is a huge priority.
    This phone is worth the money because it's designed for people who know that this is not the only one they're ever going to have.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Screen WILL go out.
    A wonderful phones at first, but it not like its entry level sibling the Kyocera 2119 (or 2135) which is very durable.

    The screen goes wacko after 1 year, you have to press HARD an the VM logo to make it go back on.

    The reception is wonderful and it works everywhere. If you are using this as a teenager's phone or a backup, its okay. ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars A great phone to start with.
    I've always hated cellphones. Be it the mystery of them giving users brain cancer or not, and the people that damn-near get into accidents while talking/texting people while driving, there's something about that that always had me staying away. But with my fantastic home phone habits, I ended up getting one so I'd actually answer the phone for select people. And so, I was given this K7 Rave Phone. Dispite it having the word "Rave" in the title, it's a nice first-timer phone. The size is fantastic. While it's a little thick, and stands out if you put it in your pocket, the overall feeling makes up for it. The buttons aren't too far into the body, so you won't be pressing as hard as you can just to dial one number. And the button placement is perfect. I -hate- those phones where there's arrows in the middle of the number section, or a few numbers are spaced further than the others. Not here, they're all even. You've got the numbers, the call button, the hang up one, arrows, ok, clear, and that's all. And that's all that's needed in the phone world really. I was glad to be able to figure out everything within seconds, without some out of wack navigation. As for the screen, it's pretty good. While it's not a color screen, it gets the job done. Words show up clearly, and are big enough to read if you hold it stretched out in front of you. And that blue backlight is gorgeous. When/if I get a newer phone, I'm keeping this one around just to see that glow.

    But the key feature I have to mention, is the flashlight. Is this thing even legal? It's up there with the likes of Mulder and Scully's flashlights, which were really used for scuba diving. I'm telling you, if you were to activate the flashlight on this phone in front of someone with epilepsy, they'd be a goner. Even during the day, it shows up. And in pitch black situations, it'll go out a good 10 feet in front of you before fading. Don't you dare look directly into this thing- you'll be seeing spots for at least 5 minutes. Just thinking about it makes me see spots even.

    The reason I rate this phone 4 stars though, is because of the screen itself. Not how it displays things, but how easily dust and what have you will get under the screen. It gets annoying, and I'm dying to know how to remove it so I can clean the damn thing. Something that I thought was a smudge, turned out to be what I'm guessing was pocket lint (cofusing a smudge for that...you know there's a problem), has been under the screen for a month now, and it's annoying as heck. Now that I think about it, there is a minor problem with the quality of things that apperar on the screen while the phone's turned on. When playing Tetris, one of three bonus games included, the blocks move with almost a blurry quality. It's not that big of a deal, and doesn't hinder gameplay, but it could've been fixed up a little better. Think back to the Pocket Tetris keychains.

    I don't know what more to say, since I've never reviewed a phone before, and for once, can't think of any other category to rate it in. The pay by the minute plan is doing well for me. While I'm not keen on money being wasted in checking your voice mail, it's nice to not have to pay just to get text messages. That's just sick. For the price of the phone, and getting a decent amount of calls on a phone card for just twenty bucks, you could do a heck of a lot worse than this K7. I'm impressed.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Good Workhorse Phone
    like many other gadget freaks i wanted a cell phone with all sorts of bells & whistles. unfortunately, i was not prepared to pay the outrageous prices being asked when all i really needed was a simple cell phone. reluctantly i purchased the K7 and you know what? i'm not at all disappointed. it's small enough to fit in my shirt pocket and powerful enough to get full bars almost everywhere i go. i really like the built in flashlight. so what if it's not a flashy looking phone? it still looks good and does the job very well. anyone buying a phone to impress their friends or the ladies needs to broaden their horizons.

    5-0 out of 5 stars I love this phone
    My husband found these nice little phones for us and we love them. We have great reception around here and on all major routes, and the rates are great for someone who only makes a few calls. The 10 cent text messages work great for us, easier to answer than voicemail since I work in a classroom. It's also nice that the rates are the same everywhere in the USA (even Hawaii), Canada, and the Caribbean, so if you go on vacation there are no extra roaming charges to use your phone like with many plans.
    I've thought about getting a flip phone in the future but the features are just not as good and the cost is much more. This little phone just has everything you'd want and more, and is very reliable.

    1-0 out of 5 stars 2 of 3 Phones Are Dead!
    We bought 3 phones with Virgin Mobile pay-as-you-go.The service is OK but the phones are awful.2 of the 3 phones we bought don't work anymore and we've had them for less than a year.And now our minutes expired so it was a waste of money for both the phones and the service.

    3-0 out of 5 stars it's ok but expensive
    The phone itself is great with the flashlight and the tip calculator.But The 25 cents a minute is a pain.Get a contract they are much better.The charge lasts 4 a while but with me it doesn't really matter cause i just put on the charger before i go to bed.If u don't use cells to much or want to buy it for your kid I would get this phone because with a like age 12 kid doesn't have their boss that they have to call or they get in a car accident because they're a kid.But if u use a cell alot don't get this phone, it will become very expensive. ...
