I purchased an Accend II for about 250.00 and it stopped working 31 days after the purches. The screen was stuck on the start up page. I took it back and was able to exchange it due to the problem being a manufacturing defect. I received my 2nd Accend II and immediately had issues receiving phone calls. When my number was dialed, there was just dead air, no ringing and of course no ringing on my end to inform me of an icoming call. In addition, I would not receive texts in a timely manner. Text would compile and periodicaly I would receive them all at once. I went to the cleartalk store one week after this and was treated horribly. I ended up spending more than an hour each day for four days in a row letting personel trouble shoot the phone, then I was told it was due to the company working on the towers and to wait another day etc. Finally I went in on the 4th time and asked for a new phone. They showed me a red Samsung phone that was very similar and I said I would give it a try. The phone does not have the same features which bummed me out. Even worse however, it was only 59 dollars cheaper. THere is no case for this phone so i asked for a refund onthe case i purchaed for the accend and was told no, that I am stuck with the case because 30 days had passed. For the refund of the difference howerver, I originally paid with a debit card and was told I could not get a refund on my card, that I will have to wait 20 days to receive a check. Sounds like a bunch of bull, but I just wanted to get a phone that worked so i agreed. A few days later, I realized I was sold a REFURBISHED phone. This infomrmation was not diclosed to me. I have only had this samsung for three days. I will be purchasing a new phone from straigh talk and getting a refund on this refurbished phone. I am done with cleartalk.
Dont waste your money on this phone. This phone dont work @ all sometime the ringer goes off by itself. Exchanged this phone back 3 times already with problems still. Im about to see if someone will buy this garbage phone off me or just toss it. Battery runs out fast. Sound is bad hearing and talking. I cant believe a phone company offers this phone fuck cricket too. Its time for verizon ill pay the xtra 10 bucks.

I didn't drop it,got it wet or anything.My husband's phone stoped charging after 4 months. Wow this phone sucks.
Huawei phones give me a head ache if I use the phone more than 5 minutes. I have to always use bluetooth to avoid headache. I have had 3 different Huawei phones and all 3 have given me head aches (my first two were the Huawie Ascend 1 and both had to get replaced, one stopped working.
I've used this phone for 9 months. Main problems are related to GPS. When use GPS, it is hard to talk on the phone. Any GPS directions that it gives while you are talking on the phone are routed through the phone speaker you are hearing conversations with. This makes it hard for you to hear others of for them to hear you. Seems to crash and reboot a few times a week. When using GPS, the map goes blank sometimes or hangs and you have to reboot (can be a hassle, sometimes I missed turns or got lost not realizing the google maps crashed and phone is not giving directions). Battery life is short. If I have it fully charged and don't use the phone it runs out of battery power in about 6 to 8 hours. It makes it hard to go very long without recharging. I end up having to turn phone off to conserve battery power but then can't receive phone calls while off. If I use the phone it runs out faster. GPS is a huge battery drain on power even thought it is plugged in to the car outlet

Okay i wanted to know a few apps that this phone has please comment oh and is there an app for free music?
Steve-O, 26 Mar 2012what did you mean by you rooted it? i was wondering so that i could do the same.. Rooting is something to do to your device that enables you to go to the main core of the device, the "root" or it if you will. If rooted you will be able to remove those annoying,pre installed apps(commonly referred to as bloatware.)Rooting will also give you more battery life and may even increase screen resolution capabilities. All these things mentioned above will NOT happen automatically, once you root look on YouTube for a demonstration on how to do all these different things on your device. NOTICE & WARNING!! If you decide to root, there may be the possibility that you may lose your insurance if you have it. Any other Android questions or apps, let me know. I am kind of an Android nerd. ^^

Yeah, I'm not keen on the whiners trying to hate on this phone. The Ascend 2 is a huge improvement over the original, and its a bitchin' value for the money. I nabbed mine for $70 after rebate to upgrade from my original Ascend. Seriously, if you need to hard-core game, make movies and dispense beverages, you're gonna need a more powerful phone. I'm a heavy personal+business user, and this thing keeps up just fine - never lags or drags. Are there more powerful smartphones? Of course. Do any offer a better overall value? Nada.
I love this phone. But the pictures always look so damn fuzzy, and blurry..... hates that there's no flash in here ..... if u can get a refund I will...... POOR PICTURE QUALITY
I have had this phone for 2 months now no problems at all I down loaded advanced task killer free and that helped with the low battery life.
Dee, 16 Jan 2012How can I get more life out of my batteryDownload easy battery saver and put it on super mode works like a champ
Dee, 16 Jan 2012How can I get more life out of my batteryTurn off your wifi....it seems to help a lot
I had the first Huawei Ascend and loved it, it had a few screen problems but after a day or so they all went away. I loved that phone. I got this phone and it seems to have a little more lag time as well as doesnt like to turn off data, wifi, etc. It also has a hard time recieving ringtones, but there are plenty of apps to fix that. Overall the phone is great so far, only had it go crazy and call the same person over and over and over one time. If any problems occured all I did was turn off the phone then back on to kind of reset it. It works for me. Seriously, good phone but not really worth the price so far. (only had it for about a month)
This is my first "smart" phone after studying and reviewing many brands....I am awed by it's ease of use and it's many functions...After reading other reviews about this phone I have come to the conclusion that it is not the phone that is difficult...it is the operator.
No sound after 14 days. Cricket better give me a new phone or heads will roll. Shoulda stayed with at&t
