User Reviews and Opinions


  1. I get so mad at this phone I want to throw it in the trash; The keyboard is too small for adult fingers and unresponsive to attempts to space or put period at end of sentence. I downloaded owner manual to learn to use camera and it still won’t take photo when I push the button.. I haven’t figured out why yet.
    It sometimes gets a page I didn’t want on screen and I can’t just click to get rid of it. It is not user friendly. Wish I could give it back to Consumer Cellular and get a better phone using the credit.
