I wouldn't call a phone not powering on or battery life depleting as it's plugged to a charger simply "something wrong". "Something wrong" is an understatement. I can take a grainy picture or low storage even. You're right, it's not a computer, it's a phone. Therefore, I expect it to operate as such. It can't do that if it won't even power on, or just shuts itself down in the middle of a call. I can't speak for everyone else, but I wouldn't be "sitting behind a computer complaining" if I had no reason to. Do you work for the company who manurfactured this failing product? You sound like you do.

Well actually to everyone out there that says this phone is worth nothing,i'd like to state that EVERY single cell phone out there HAS SOME KIND OF PROBLEM. It dose not matter how new a phone is... because its ALWAYS going to have SOME kind of problem! And another thing is that i think the phone is GREAT i've had NO problems with it and i've had it for almost a YEAR! Yes, its is a little bit slow but its a PHONE not a freaking COMPUTER! And yes, the camera is not that good but that's what a REAL camera is for! This phone is also GREAT for a first phone! You guys on your computers are just sitting and complaining about the phone! Since you obivoisly know what your talking about... WHY DON'T YOU COME UP WITH A BETTER ONE?

> In reply to Iguess...again @ 2013-01-14 19:40 from GBT7 - click to readI'm back to recant my previous statement about this not being a terrible phone. It actually is a terrible. Absolutely horrible. I now have a new problem altogether. My phone will no hold a charge. No matter what. As a matter of fact it can be plugged into a charger and the battery life still drains. It is totally ridiculous. Just like the audio port died out of the blue, my phone will not charge out of the blue. I am so sick of this crap. I will never purchased another one. I was trying to be economical, but alas...I will be saving to purchase a phone that is actually worth the money it costs. This phone is nothing but a headache. I wouldn't dream of replacing it with another of it's kind. I haven't had it an entire year and every other week it's something else. I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS CRAP TO ANYONE. Any other phone has to be better than this phone. smh.

Huawei ascend is piece of crap!! When I turn phone on I get android keyboard failed. force close? only way to clear it is to pull battery. have had 2 for a year. 1st one lasted a week, and returned it to place of purchase. 2nd 1 was returned to man and replaced with a refurbished phone. had it 2 months and it is doing the same thing. this phone is not worth its weight in dog crap!!!!!!!

Waste of $70! I would not recommend this phone to anyone. No wonder it was on sale...

For starters, there is virtually no storage space. If you get an app, and then delete the app, it will still have "low storage space". I had four apps, and yet I see in notifications that I have "low storage space".

Second, the battery life sucks. It can barely last about three hours, correct me if I'm wrong.

Finally, it takes forever to download apps. It also constantly crashes when using apps, and tends to freeze when it's on the Internet. So, your only option is to turn it off and then back on, which gets annoying.

I still have the phone, which I'm planning to give away to some unlucky person, and now I have an iPhone 4, which I love. I always now have a plan wig Sprint instead of Cricket. If you have the Huawei Ascend II, I would suggest selling it, or giving it away and getting a new phone. You can get a different smartphone for a low price, with a contract, but eh, I got my iPhone 4 for free with a two year contract, and I'm happy.

This phone is the worst phone I have ever owned. I have had basic phones that worked better than this one. At first it was great but it seems like when you uninstall a program it still keeps some of the storage space unusable and so eventually you cannot download any new apps. I have deleted all of my text messages, pictures, videos, and un synced my email, and uninstalled all but Words with Friends and it still says it is low on memory. And when it is low on memory the phone cannot receive emails or any kind of notification other than a text message. Do not buy this phone ever. The speed is terrible as well. Takes forever to go from app to app.

This is a terrible phone. I am so sorry I wasted my money. The First Ascend was pretty good so I figured the II would be excellent. I was wrong. I only have 4 basic apps downloaded, (notepad, calendar, antivirus, facebook)but I continually have the "low phone storage" warning coming up. This is supposed to be a Muve Music phone, but the program wont even register due to "insufficient storage" on the phone. I barely have anything on my phone!!!! And when the phone has the low storage, it wont run properly. It wont keep signal, you cant dial. TERRIBLE phone.

Having sold my iPhone 4 I decided to have a go with an Android phone but didn't want to spend a lot of money so I bought the Huawei G300. The phone was ok at the beginning but now apps keep crashing, sometimes all of them, even contacts, messaging and the dialing pad so I'm having to hard reset at least once a week and reinstall all apps again as simply restarting or turning off then on again won't solve the crashing problems. I thought it was a problem with my handset in particular but reading the comments here makes me even more frustrated as realised that the phone itself is a lot of crap and not that I was unlucky with a bad handset.

> In reply to msshocke @ 2013-01-15 18:57 from Ydw5 - click to readI have the same problem too. I think it may have to do with the class speed of your MircoSD card. Mine was a Class 4, I'm upgrading to a class 10, we'll see if that fixes the problem.

I have problems with my phone cutting off when I try to go into the gallery to download or look at pictures. Sometimes it will do it when I try to turn the camera on. When I took it back to the store it wouldn't do it, as soon as I left it started again. I am frustrated and as soon as my contract is up I will be changing phones.

I meant to say that "I ran it like it COULD handle loads of crap that it simply could not."

I bought this phone in August. Just about one month ago the audio jack (which really isn't a jack at all) just stopped working for no apparent reason.
It was so frustrating since I keep music in my ears for most of the day.
Anyway, soon after that text app began crashing on a daily basis. Then all other apps starting doing the same. I'd find myself having to re-boot it tens of times a day. I ended up having to do a factory reset. I back up all of my data, pics, music, etc. on flashes so I wasn't totally out of luck. The phone works just now fine except that the audio "jack" is still messed up so my music still only plays out of the speaker.
I don't think that this is a terrible phone, I just think that I wasn't keeping up with maintenance as I should have. I ran it like it couldn't handle loads of crap that it simply could not. That is evident by the fact that now since I have started over, it runs as smoothly as it did the first day I had it.

Like the other posters said it's not an iPhone or a Galaxy, but for the money($100USD), it's the best phone Straight Talk offers. I've had it since June of '12 and have have few problems with it and much enjoyment. It's my new swiss army knife.
