Ive tried to add a service card to mine after a few days of letting it go over the end date, I tried to add the card via wifi internet on the phone, at first it wasn't going through then it said the service card was already in use meaning it worked, it said I had the 3G in the top right corner but then it went away and now it's saying I have an end date on july 29th but it's still not working!! any suggestions??
I've had this phone for over two years. It's been beaten pretty bad, used in the rain, used in the snow, dropped in a puddle, and has held up (probably luck it didn't land squarely on the screen or corner each time it was dropped).
Overall, the phone is a middle of the pack phone. Nothing really stands out on it - good or bad. It's best described as "standard". However, it does all the functions.
Highlights are easy to use, the vibration isn't weak when pushing buttons, and the screen is accurate when pushing icons and buttons.
The big drawbacks are lack of internal storage space, the large pre-installed and unremovable apps like facebook, and the battery isn't as strong as it should be - if used for surfing or navigation it seems like the battery only lasts a couple of hours.
Overall, I'd give this phone a 7 out of 10. It's price makes it a fiscally responsible choice for those on a budget that still want something functional.
I have had this phone for 3 months and I HATE it. It has almost no storage and the SD card doesn't help because hardly any apps go onto it! With Facebook and Google Play Services preinstalled on it, they take up pretty much all of the storage on the phone. For like a month now it acts as if it is possessed by an evil demon. It will type stuff by itself, tap things by itself, and scroll to the side sometimes (by itself). The only solution I could find to this problem would be to turn it off then back on again (and sometimes even that doesn't help). And if I were to shut it down, when I would turn it back on, the evil demon like actions would become unbearable. When I first got the phone, it was fine, but after a month this started to happen. For a bit of time there was a part of the phone which wouldn't even work! I would tap there and it would either click the thing above or below it instead of where I tapped. I do NOT recommend this phone.
I had this phone for a month. Screen cracked in the cold. Earphone jack doesn't act right it almost always thinks there's a headphone jacked in which makes calls only workable when I have phone on speaker but it won't pick up The mic when I have the headphones in. I lost the receipt and Walmart people won't help me return it. Junk. Way too expensive for the dumb problems I've had so far. A $30 phone worked better before.
I have had this phone for a year and a half now, and it still works great! It is still relatively fast, and with rooting I have no app size limitations. Even though I have never put a screen protector on it, it only has one scratch which was my fault for bringing it along to some sand dunes. Overall, I think it's small size and great battery life and performance for it's age make it a great older smartphone.
piece of shit, I've had it for 3 weeks, and now the touch screen is completly unresponsive.
mandiee, 30 Apr 2013I really like this phone, was thinking of buying it. I love all the feat. is has, but someone ... moreMine has only ever given me a overheat warning once. It was pretty random just a month or so back. Have had the phone for a couple years and never had it happen before or since. Aside from that it gets a little warm sometimes but nothing worth worrying over.
Not a very great phone but for the price it's been amazinly efficient and durable .

I've figured out that, for one reason or another, you simply need to make sure that you scroll ALL THE WAY DOWN TO THE BOTTOM of the new contact menu once you input the contact data. Why, I don't know, but this has worked every time since I figured it out.
Its okay. I lost all my pictures because the sd card "was full". One minute, i have 65 minutes of recording time and 245pictures remaining. The next , even if you don't take a picture, the sd card is full. The memory is always full even if you only have one app. Water resistant. Dust proof.

I have a Motorola defy xt. For the most part I like it. Main reason for not liking it. Very low memory or storage area. I.E. I get a new number from somebody I want to save in phone, it takes you through the steps to do it. But, when you check in your contacts or call log, nothing. How do I fix this??
I am using this phone since more than a year. It is very rugged phone. Most of the people here commented on various aspects of the phone. Main issue with this phone is "Signal reception". Not able to gain the signal, once it is lost due to any reasons (like passing through low signal zone, restarting the phone, may be in the lift or so on). I have compared this phone with various other phones in the weak signal areas and found that other phone are able to pick the signal very fast and my Motorola defy xt takes a lot to become normal. This is one of the main reason, I am planning to change this phone. It becomes useless for couple of minutes (some times up to 10 minutes) once signal lost occurs. This phone can not be trusted during any emergency. Other things are good and manageable as compared to other high end phones. It seems that signal reception problem is in the system design itself. May be this low signal issues are not common in the western countries.

If what you said is correct, and it hasnt been broken due to mishandling (ie, getting yanked sideways causing the port to break.
At worst it would be able to be repaired by them, most likely they will fix under warranty just to keep you happy **If you actually complain properly**
