1.)Calendar appointment alerts either do not trigger at the set time -or at all. This has resulted in lost wages, missed doctors' appointments, and other more serious situations.
2.)Phone calls will not connect, no ringing or call alert, and the voice-mail indicator will not indicate a new message for a substantial duration of time (one particular voice-mail was not announced until two days later).
3.)When attaching the charging cord, the phone has a high chance of locking up entirely. There is nothing visibly wrong until I try to utilize the phone, whereupon it refuses to even turn the screen on/off (depending on what mode it was in when I plug in the power). This can only be fixed by removing and replacing the battery. Obviously, I need not point out why not having my wake-up alarm function is very, very bad.
4.)Backing out of applications sometimes locks up the phone entirely.
5.)Text messages sometimes take hours to send/receive.
6.)Camera button is finicky and sometimes must be depressed six or seven times before the photo capture application starts.
7.)The sound volume -even at the highest setting- is still far too low to be heard outside of a pants pocket without distinctly ideal conditions.
8.)The ringtones (that is to say, the ONLY ringtones -since you cannot download or otherwise add additional ringtones by any means) are merely minor alterations of the same soundbyte, making them incredibly hard to establish from one another... if you can even hear them.
9.)Unable to download my prior (or upload my current) phone contacts list.
10.)There is no functioning software to link (via supplied USB cable) my phone to my PC for transferring contacts, appointments, media, or any other data.
11.)In “sleep” mode, the volume buttons are still active. While in my pocket, the phone can (and is) easily rendered silent, and there is no means by which to circumvent this without physically altering the device... not good.
I just received mine yesterday. And it doesn't have youtube or facebook or twitter on it...
This phone is nice and easy to use but it sucks. I'm on my third one in less than a year because they keep having mechanical problems like power cycling and the buttons not working. I love it because of the look and size but other than that it is terrible.

Anonymous, 28 Sep 2011I am 38 years old and have just recently bought this phone. I am only interested in facebook, ... moreThe phone is a full qwerty which is good for texting. Calling works fine and you can access facebook through the browser. You don't need a data plan and you can connect to a wi-fi spot in your home or where ever you can find it. However, Verizon no longer offers the phone to buy online so if you want it you'll have to buy it off of ebay.

golu, 21 Jun 2011its very costly and it has nothing but it has a high price. please, dont buy it.really, got mine for free, just to start a plan its only 19.99 unless thats alot of money to you i recomend it, easy to use, user friendly, i breack phones on a daily cant afford 300 dollar phones so i got this, does everything i need it to, talk text suf the web, i dont see whats so bad about it to be honest

Little P, 14 Aug 2011Ok, I've been thinking about getting this phone but I've had some people tell me it's a bad ph... moreHave the phone about a year and here is what I experienced. The software freezes occassionally. Twice the e-mail app ceased to work. Once the
messaging app ceased to work. Only after fully resetting the phone does it work again. A pain because I had to re-enter my entire contact list. The lack of an external
memory slot is a negative.
The good - when it is working smoothly the phone is great for messaging, calls are clear, Zune is great, and the browser works satisfactory for what it is. Yes, it works with WiFi
only but it works for me. Browser is slow and clunky, but it is better than nothing. It will not replace a smart phone by any stretch and I am fine with that. Overall
I give this a 7 out of 10 as a feature phone. The software glitches are the only major issues.
Overall this is the best feature phone at Verizon.
I am 38 years old and have just recently bought this phone. I am only interested in facebook, talk and texting. I wanted it because its small and it looks cool. Is it true I wont need a data plan and can just use my wifi at home or where it is available to get on the internet?
Ok, I've been thinking about getting this phone but I've had some people tell me it's a bad phone and it freezes and messes up a lot. But on the other hand I've heard some people say it's a good phone and I've seen some of yall's reviews saying so too. I need help is it a good phone to get or not?
Anonymous, 15 Mar 2011Where could i buy one ??? i'm searching for a online store
This phone is great. I haven't had many problems. But it will occasionally freeze and you will have to take the battery out. This phone is easy to use. You don't have to go everywhere to find something, it's all right there on the homepage. I recommend this phone if it is your first.
this is a real hand set i dont belive this,the hand set is lunch in market
its very costly and it has nothing but it has a high price. please, dont buy it.
i think this phone is a really good phone to have for people 12 to 17 years of age, it slides right in ur pocket, its a cute phone and it works really well with the qwerty keyboard and touch screen. it fits nicely into ur hand. i have done alot of researc on this phone and think it is a really good phone to have. it keeps u up to date on all ur texts and is a good social phone, i my opinian.
If windows mobile have to be in market they should do something diff things but whats this internal memory but no card slot for expandable whats this no gprs and edge 3g speed 3.1mbps but nice operating system but i dont like this if it was gsm and if it was having above listed i would buy it not this dont by this anyone try to buy samsung ace pro nokia e7 is even good i have it nice mobile touch response is really good
