Figo - Maybe a good buy, maybe not

CON #1 - Memory . With only 8gb of memory there is little room for apps. The system memory and junk apps (uninstallable) take up 7gb so I have just 4 apps installed and I still am getting the memory warning. I have tried moving every possible app over to my 16gb sd card but most are not moveable.
CON#2 - Connectivity - The bluetooth on this device will not stay connected to the bluetooth in my car. Given the steep fines for having a cell phone in your hand while driving, the $40 phone could soon end up costing me several hundred. Similarly, the wifi connection is not strong. I had to turn off my mobile data plan as I was going way over it. I tried many things but the only solution, in the end, seemed to be to disconnect my mobile data or risk a huge bill. I never had a problem with my data usage when I used my Blackberry. The increased cost of data would wipe out the savings of this phone's price tag quite quickly. Connecting to public wifi is hit and miss. It mostly stays connected to the wifi at work but not always. This phone is fine for anyone who needs the phone for mainly talk and text and wants a nice looking screen or for someone who isn't very limited in their data plan. For the right type of user, this phone is a real bargain. For the wrong type of user, this phone is a bargain that keeps costing time and money.
