I got my first Pantech Matrix on Christmas and it worked well up until January. It started freezing and ended up coming completely off the track. When I brought my phone in I got another one for free and have had it up until now. This one hasn't broken off the track but freezes a lot and says insert sim card (when the sim card is in there) daily, and sometimes more than once a day. This phone seemed cool since it could slide both ways but I wouldn't recommend it at all. Get a better phone and save some money!
Have had my blue Matrix since Christmas and the paint is coming off and the phone just shuts down while I'm texting. Has anyone else had problems with the Paint? I'm concerned since I have a 2 year old and with all I have read about the lead in paint from other countries??
I have owned my Pantech Matriz since April,2009. I adore the phone. It was a great choice for me. I would not trade it for any other kind of smart phone. The color is sensational. Very happy with it. So far no break downs or act ups.
this is a good phone but it has alot of problems! it blanks out and restarts randomly it also takes awhile to delete the messages overall it's an OK phone but has quite a few problems it is easy to text on though.
Rockever101, 04 Jul 2009which one is better, the pantech matrix or the pantech duo?Well, the Pantech Duo is a smart phone, meanwhile the Matrix is just a regular phone. The Duo runs Windows Mobile & the Matrix runs a standerd program. The Duo is kind of old now so if you did want a Duo, you should just go for the Pantech Matrix Pro which is a newer version of the dule sliding Smart Phone. Hope I helped.
Rosebud, 28 Jun 2009I've had this phone for about 2 months now. I got the red one. I LOVE IT!! A few times now whi... moreis this a good phone for me, a sixth grader going to middle school? someone please answer me. i want a phone now!!! (not to be pushy):D
I've had this phone for about 2 months now. I got the red one. I LOVE IT!! A few times now while deleting my text msgs, it seems to freeze and I have to turn it off and back on but that's only happened 3 times and only if I've had over 60+ read or sent msgs. I usually have bad luck with my phones so I'll keep you informed if something goes wrong. Oh, and my 12 year old has the same phome only blue and she loves hers too. Great phone!!!!
JONAH, 16 Jun 2009i dont see it in the manual. but is it possible to assign a specific ring tone to any of my c... moreYeah, you just can't save the names under SIM. When you add a new contact, save it under PHONE and you can edit from there.
JONAH, 16 Jun 2009i dont see it in the manual. but is it possible to assign a specific ring tone to any of my c... moreThere is a way to set ring tones for your contacts. First, you would have to save your contact that you want to use the tone to your phone. When the contact is saved in to your phone, then you would then first go to the contact name. You should see an icon next to the name, it should not be the sim icon. Then you would push options, left soft key. Edit & then go down to ringtone & set your ringtone. The tone should not be more than 300KB because the tone will then be too big to set as a ringtone.

i agree with cho. i bought an sd card for it, but the phone won't let me save any pictures in it! although i do like the qwerty on it. it's really easy to work. still, if you want a long lasting phone, not this one. same things as cho's matrix happened with mine
I have this phone, and it's not that great. I've had it for a while now and it reboots randomly, turn off on its own, and sometimes it freezes up. I don't even use the phone often!! I say look for a different phone.
