Please read the product description carefully for all unlocked cell phones.

Some unlocked cell phones sold by Newegg may have previously been locked to a specific carrier. A carrier-locked cell phone may often have carrier-specific applications and branding. Some of these applications cannot be unlocked and/or may not function with a different carrier. Also, applications requiring a data plan may result in data usage charges from the original carrier.

In addition, the cell phone box may arrive unsealed and the cell phone may appear previously handled. The unlocking procedure requires unsealing the box and manually handling the cell phone. In this case, the cell phone should not be considered "tampered with" or "defective".

2 out of 5 eggsMeh

Pros: Has a keyboard.

Cons: It's simply not good at anything. Call quality isn't good, image quality isn't good, no expandable memory, nothing particularly stand-out about its features. Not particularly durable, not particularly good-looking.

Other Thoughts: A real "meh" phone. Got this for free after my A687 (Strive) broke, and it was QUITE the downgrade. Saved a little and got a Nokia E5 since then, and haven't looked back.

3 out of 5 eggsOK phone

Pros: OK phone.. It does what it needs to do. Texts are easy to read, it dials, has an OK camera. Battery life is good.

Cons: My biggest complaint.. If you have to dial a number with letters in it like 1-800-GET-FOOD.. You have to stop and figure out the corresponding letters to the number. Its tedious trying to figure out g=4. e=3. 8=t. The small qwerty keyboard doesn't have the letters with the numbers. On most phones I had with a qwerty keyboard, if you pressed the "G" button, the number 4 key would send. This phone won't do it. If your stuck in traffic and have to enter the person's last name to find the extension of the person you want to reach.. FORGET IT. Even texting google, one will need to translate 466453 for GOOGLE

Other Thoughts: Its a good basic phone. You can't expect much for the price. It has a basic camera and takes OK pictures. The screen is good to read texts. Don't expect much from the web browser. It can load a weather forecast, a sports score, and log you into facebook OK..It does not take video. Don't expect the quality of a $400 smart phone. If you looking for a phone to text with, send pictures, without flashy internet apps, and without paying the fees of a smart phone.. It does the job.

1 out of 5 eggsJust Good Enough

Pros: Make phone calls....

Cons: Cannot take video's or receive from others, camera pic's too small and blurry. No spell check through text messages. Only hold 100 messages in the memory. Keyboard difficult to use because the keys are tilled toward each other (not flat).

Other Thoughts: Not worth the money....

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Decent phone seems durable, no real problems.

Cons: keyboard is a little difficult to use. the keys are very close together and when text messaging if one key is hit while another is down the first key hit will not compute which makes fast text messaging a little difficult.

Other Thoughts: Overall decent phone. camera sucks but whatever.

1 out of 5 eggsBad Santa

Pros: Bought this for my son for Christmas, tested it before wrapping it up and it worked fine for texting. Made a call from my phone and it rang. The boy was very Happy when he opened it up, Then...

Cons: Then I called him on the phone and I couldn't hear him talk when he held it in the normal fashion for talking on the phone. Vey unhappy to get a broken phone for a Christmas gift I gave to my son. Totally sucks... I will let you know how it goes trying to exchange it for another

5 out of 5 eggsGood Phone

Pros: Daughters Happy!! She said it was the best phone shes ever had (12yr old). Phone is light, looks nice, Good on Batteries, Full keyboard.

Cons: Camera mode Sucks especially if you make slight movements or shakes while taking pics, No Video mode, Bluetooth only works through headset device not transfering pics also no micro mem card. Price is well worth the $79.99 i bought it for. Gonna buy another one for my daughter since she lost the phone at the park =(

Other Thoughts: Worth the money when its on sale ($79.99) its cheap does its job making calls and txtng. Voice quality is clear, daughter loves to txt on this thing..

4 out of 5 eggsGood product

Pros: Sleek, very thin. QWERTY style input. Speakerphone. Camera. Web browsing and e-mail. Calendar, task reminder, etc.

Cons: Mine came with the display covering (thin plastic layer covering main display) detached at one corner. That is to say one corner of the display covering keeps popping up and I can't seem to click it down. This is not a flaw with the product just the particular item I was shipped.

Other Thoughts: Learning curve not too bad on using QWERTY input. There are shift and function keys for changing a button's input. You will need a data plan (on top of talk/text) to utilize web browsing and e-mail.
