I got this phone mostly because I needed an inexpensive smartphone with GPS/voice navigation. It's been a good phone for the most part, but I have noticed a few things that make it not so desirable. 1) The memory. Extremely limited, so I can only have the apps on that are necessary for living, which means, the only game I can play is words with friends. 2) Lately my phone has been resetting itself to EST in the middle of the night, and I am in CST, which means the alarm has been going off an hour early the last few days. I could use that hour of sleep. 3) It can't handle a lot of demand, and tends to freeze up when you try to make it respond like you want it to. I've had to take the battery out several times to unfreeze it. 4) The Android thing. It runs on 2.2, not 2.3 as it says it does, which means a lot of Android apps will not work with this phone, even if you have the space for it. 5) The camera is pitiful. Resolution is not good, and video is even worse, and don't bother trying to zoom. All it does is blur.

It does pick up sound really well, so if you want to record church sermons, or school lectures, or what have you, there's an app for that (feature doesn't come with phone) and the sound is fairly good.

All in all, I'd say the phone is ok for first-time smartphone users, but don't expect it to work like an iphone. Because it just doesn't.

If this phone had 512 MB of internal usable memory (or heck even 256) it would be the best budget phone. But due to the limited internal mem, I had to do a little searching and rooting. I ended up with Cyanogenmod 7 and a data-2-SD setup so now the phone "thinks" there's 1 GB (or otherwise a specifiable amount) of internal storage for lots more apps. Recommend a 32 GB class 10/UHS 1 sd card for best results (and space obvs).

This phone is a little rough around the edges, but you can smooth them out yourself to make it shine.

I hate this phone, my biggest issue is that the internal memory is so bad you can only download an app or 2 then the internal memory is full and that really sucks. I will say it has lasted me a long time and has proven very durable, I have dropped it a couple times and it still works but it does have a mind of it's own and it's pretty slow even with 3g activated. I finally came up with the cash to upgrade and can't wait to throw this phone in the trash!

I have had this phone for 9 months and love it. The first couple days getting used to it was tough. Now I am unable to update the operating system. Is this phone capable of running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, which is necessary to use mobile banking?

The phone automatically switches into sleep more when a call is made or received. Usually when you pull the phone away from your head it switches back on. Without a proximity sensor the phone is unable to d o this so you have to do it manually...
