It's not that bad

Overall this phone is okay. I have had it for over a year. The only glitch I absolutely get annoyed with is the that it freezes when I get a text in and I go to navigate away using the back button... however, hitting the end button and then navigating does not freeze the phone.

The review below says that the keypad does not have a backlight. This is NOT true. The phone, when on powersave mode, will turn that light off. Take it off powersave mode and you will have the light you need. I personally keep it on powersave unless I'm in the dark and keep making typo's... I usually don't make typos unless I need to hit symbols that I can't remember where they are.

This phone, I will admit, I hate for when I get a duplicate text message. If a person sends me "Lol." in one text and then sends that same message to me on a different date and time, it will group that text as ONE text... and that text will remain in it's original spot from the past, not move up to the top of the list... it's rather annoying when the texts are plentiful and you have to scroll through all there is... very annoying...

this phone I put in a 3 star because it has things I don't like. However, it does have things I do like. The alarm clock has been, for the most part, fairly reliable. I like that when my mp3 player dies I can use the phone as an mp3 player... I've noticed the new phones don't have regular headphone audio jacks (3.5 mm ones)... which ticks me off... because I'm getting a new phone later on (going to a new provider)... anyway, the samsung phone I'll be getting doesnt have the audio jack and I will certainly be missing that.

ultimately I use this phone for texting and talking... the battery can last a maximum of 2 days. 1 day or less if I'm busy with texting and talking, two if I barely text and talk.

anyway I suppose that's all I have to say. I wouldn't recommend getting this phone anymore since there are newer better ones out there ^^
