I have had this phone now for a little over a year, I have had Motorola and Nokia cell phones in the past and after the bad taste the sucky Nokia's put in my mouth I was elated to find Panasonic made cell phones! for the 1st 6 months it worked well enough, although I find the voice recognition doesn't work 99% of the time, after that it went rapidly downhill. I don't use my cell a ton, maybe 150 minutes a month, if that and I only charge it after it tells me it needs it, even though with a lithium ion battery memory should not be an issue but after the 6th month this thing will not let me get in more than 10 minutes of talk time and about 10 or 12 hours of standy, a far cry from the claims by Panasonic, whom I still wholeheartdely endorse for all their OTHER products. At this point the battery is bad and now the screen is starting to not work all the time, and the earpiece has intermittent sound, I never thought anything could be as bad as a Nokia 5160 or 6160 but this has fallen into the same category.
if you are a person who uses a cell phone alot and gets new ones every year this phone although at the end of it's lifecycle would be adequate BUT if you prefer to keep your phones for a while I do not recommend this one.
