The touch screen is the only way to operate this phone and once it stops responding (and it will) you're hosed. Had this phone for 3 years and have have many frustrations and panics with it, as once the touch screen decides to hang it MAY come back - and then again, it may NOT. I wouldn't give this phone to my worst enemy.
I have been using my A697 for almost a year now,but suddenly when i dial a number i can't hear until i get it on speaker i have reset still the same-thing how can i correct this any assistance?
bidzina, 13 Jan 2011Does anyone know if GPS works if the phone is unlocked and used with other than AT&T provi... moreStop. Consumer Cellular will not let you or can't figure out how to-unlock the phone if you leave them. You will NOT be using it with AT&T, b/c they both cannot figure out how to UNLOCK THIS PHONE. Take my advice, just look elsewhere.
Good, basic touchscreen phone. Only one home screen to worry with. Great for older adults who need the ease of touchscreen and to receive texts without all the smartphone complexity.
its not a bad phone got it 2 years ago and its fine but the touch screen doesn't always work on the lock screen and the home page other than that its not a bad phone and i did crack my screen and it works fine i cracked it by stepping on it and it didnt crack that easy ether.
I have had this phone twice. It's actually a pretty nice phone. But, the touch screen, lock key and the back key will start messing up within a 3-4 months. I got one a year back, and it lasted about 5-6 months before it started messing up, and then I bought another one from eBay for my birthday back in January, and it started messing up AGAIN a week ago.
Honestly, I wouldn't recommend this phone. It's a bigger hassle than it's worth.
Touchscreen will fry within a few months, usually right after 1 year warranty. Cannot see display outside in sunlight.
how nice basic phone very versatile and can be also use as soap too....
This set is u know very nice.. i am so excited having dis fone.. wow coool... but the only flaw of this set is.. fm-less set... without radio...ddaaam
If you really want to know where else to get this phone you can get it through Consumer Cellular a "No Contract" cell phone company
Does anyone know if GPS works if the phone is unlocked and used with other than AT&T provider?
I'm thinking getting it and that's the only thing stopping me right now.
