  1. Amber says:

    My husband and I got this phone and when we talk to each other using the phone app it’s glitchy and horrible service the duo app helps a bit with that however when I talk to anyone else it works pretty good, very little skips and miscommunication. When will this phone take on the 5g world as well because it’s service is very poor compared to my Nokia C2 tava which is pretty old and my husband’s lg fortune we had better service with those why the sudden drop in quality of service?!

    please help me move or delete the buttons on the screen when I am talking. I keep pressing the mute button while on a call.

  3. Scott snyder says:

    This phone has got to be the worst phone I have ever had. First of all, the touch. The touch sucks and I can’t touch anything because the touch sensitivity is horrible. Another thing, it’s slow. I want a fast phone that can actually cooperate with me and not be slow and unresponsive. So out of all the phones I used, this is the worst phone I have ever used. Hope the phone creater/programmer would go back to tech school just horrible very horrible
