for the Alcatel Venture / One Touch Premiere:
Nice Basic Android Phone
You can pick these up for $39 and it is a nice basic Android phone. It is a great value for that price. You get the Google Play store for apps. Touch screen and real physical keyboard. It is a great basic Android phone for light duty users. Battery life is ok. Again for light duty. The audio quality is quite good. Clear and pretty loud. I have an HTC EVO for my primary VM phone, but use this for times when ...

for the ZTE Warp:
Nice Giant Phone
This is one nice big phone for Boost Mobile. Decent build quality, nice big screen, fast response when launching apps and switching between screens. Decent camera on board too. If you have an older Boost phone then it is definitely trade-up time for you. You will enjoy this baby for sure.

for the HTC Wildfire S (CDMA):
Great Android Phone
I got the white colored version for Virgin Mobile. It looks really sleek, modern and clean. Nice compact size. Vibrant responsive touch screen. Fast response, very little lag launching apps or moving between screens. Audio is loud and clear and reception is solid. Bluetooth pairs easily with devices and holds the connection. Connects automatically with paired devices most of the time. Definitely an attractive and functional entry level Android phone that you will enjoy using.

for the Motorola Triumph:
Best Virgin Mobile Phone Yet !
This is by far and no doubt the BEST phone Virgin Mobile has EVER offered. Fast response ( no lags here ) NIce large screen, looks gorgeous. Android without a lot of bloat and the Android Market with 1000's of apps. Works like a dream. If you have any other VM phone put it for sale or recycle it and buy this monster excellent phone. Definitely the BEST !

for the Huawei Ascend II:
Best Cricket Android Phone Yet
This one really rocks. Probably the BEST phone Cricket has ever offered. Android Market is very cool. 1000's of apps. Nice clean modern design. I love the white back. You will love it. I do.

for the Sanyo Zio by Kyocera:
Very Old School
Slow.....slow.....unresponsive...... Cheap looking and feeling....... Might have impressed someone 3 years ago. Not now. Do yourself a favor and skip it.

Feb 3, 2011, 1:18 AM
for the Huawei Ascend:
Horrible Little Phone
Sluggish response. Slow....slow......slow....... Touch screen is very slow and unresponsive. Not clear and crisp either. Graphics and text look blocky. The on-screen keyboard is a nightmare to use. Expect to do a lot of tapping and getting the wrong letters. Call quality is mediocre. Not loud enough or clear enough. What is up with the small non-standard headphone jack. No using your own ear-buds on this thing. Looks and feels cheap. Skip this phone.

for the Samsung Intercept:
Avoid Like the Plague !
This is the MOST horrible phone I ever used ! Very slow and lagging screen and buttons. Apps start up very slowly. You have to hit the buttons over and over to get them to respond. Horrible battery life, hardly used it and it could not make it through the day. This model really needs to be discontinued. The user experience is just not usable or acceptable. This phone will totally turn you off to Android, but trust me not all Android ...

Sep 24, 2010, 10:06 PM
for the Apple iPhone 4 (GSM):
Gorgeous Phone
Beautiful phone, looks and feels better than any phone you ever touched. Like a fine Leica camera. Wonderful Apple iOS for the BEST user experience you will find on ANY phone. If you like the BEST in life this is the only phone to consider. Nothing else comes close !

Aug 30, 2010, 11:47 PM
for the Huawei Tap:
Horrible Phone
Avoid like the plague ! Resistive touch screen is slow, unresponsive and just a nightmare. The phone looks pretty nice, but using it will drive you insane. Skip this bad boy !

for the LG UX-220 / 220c:
Good Basic Phone
My wife has this phone with the StraightTalk service and it is a good basic flip-phone. Good reception, bluetooth, pretty decent build, decent looking, decent audio ( could be a bit louder and clearer ). No camera, but who needs that in a phone anyway.

Feb 13, 2010, 6:48 AM
for the Cal-Comp MSGM8:
Nice Messaging Phone
Picked this up at a big box retailer. If you are looking for a solid, yet economical messaging phone then this will do the trick. Candy bar style design looks like a budget Blackberry. - Color screen - Nice keyboard is slick for texting and entering contacts into the address book. - Bluetooth - Standard mini USB charging port - Audio is crisp, clear, but even at full volume could be a bit louder. - Pleasant user interface does the job A solid choice for use with the ...

Jan 27, 2010, 11:23 PM
for the Cal-Comp CAPTR A200:
Good Basic Phone
You can get this on Cricket PayGo Daily or Monthly plans or Monthly billed plans. It is a good solid basic flip phone. It does the trick. Decent voice quality. OK camera. If you just want a basic phone at a cheap monthly price this phone and Cricket are for you. No bells or whistles here. Just does the job. Available online or at "big-box" retail stores.

for the Motorola Clutch i465:
Solid Keyboard Phone
This is a solid candy-bar style phone with a full QWERTY keyboard. It is offered on BoostMobile. Nice loud audio. Has walkie-talkie of course. Good for those who like to text. Currently the only phone in the BoostMobile line-up that has the full QWERTY keyboard. If you text then you will like it.

Apr 30, 2009, 2:51 PM
for the Kyocera X-tc M2000:
NIce Keyboard Phone
This is definitely the best phone VM has offered with media features and a full keyboard. Pros: Nice large gorgeous color screen Useful full keyboard Functional slide out design works great Useful media features Great unlimited calling plan Great $99 price Cons: Only available in drab, dark blackish blue How about white and other colors ? A better camera would be nice. When will VM offer a touch screen phone like everyone else ? This phone is recommended especially for those that like a full keyboard to text, email, and Web browse.

for the Apple iPhone:
Coolest Phone Ever Made
I hit the Albuquerque Apple store right after work on Friday to pick-up two 8GB iphones for my wife and I. It was a very exciting event. The news media was there including a helicopter hovering in the air filming. It was a 100 degree heat, but Apple staff were handing out bottled water. The line was pretty long, but once the store opened at 6PM I was in the store in 45 minutes. It was an amazing event with ...

for the Samsung SGH-T629:
Very Stylish Looking Phone
I just switched over to T-Mobile from Cingular to take advantage of the wonderful money saving My Faves plans that they have. I got this phone for $99 and I am really enjoying it. I use it as a back-up phone to my far more feature rich Nokia e61. I got it unlocked right away so I can use it during travel with other carrier's SIMs. This Samsung T-629 is very stylish looking and a pleasure to use also. Pros: - Nice ...

for the Ericsson T39:
A True Classic Phone
I just purchased one of these T39's unlocked from a guy on eBay. It was $25 and totally refurbished to look and perform like new. Using it here in Albuquerque NM and it works great ! It is a fantastic phone. Very good RF radio performance. Holds calls like a magnet. Nice sounding audio that is clear and loud enough to hear. The phone is attractive and small. I highly recommend it for international travel. Just pop in an international SIM ...

Sep 1, 2006, 10:29 PM
for the Nokia 6215i:
OK Phone - Poor Build Quality
This phone is quite slim and has an average feature set. The audio is quite good on the Verizon network here in Albuquerque NM. The problem with this phone is the build quality. It is quite flimsy and does not appear that it will hold up very well. This has been my experience with Pantech phones in general. They appear and feel cheap and do not last very well to the rigers of the real world. The feature sets ...

Aug 27, 2006, 9:53 PM
for the Samsung SCH-A930:
James Bond Phone with Fantastic Audio
This is just a very slick looking and working phone. The reception and audio quality are fantastic. I have tried many phones and this phone is tops in audio. It can get loud, which is handy when trying to hear in noisy areas. It just feels good in your hand and has a cool, yet very solid build. Pros: Stylish looks Blue OLED external display Fantastic Audio ( REALLY LOUD & CLEAR ) Good reception 1.3mp Camera with flash Memory card slot Clear & Vivid Display Bluetooth Solid build Easy ...

Aug 12, 2006, 10:36 AM
for the Nokia 8890:
A True Classic
I just purchased one of these brand new from Overstock.com. Who knows where they got them as this is a pretty old phone. Seems to be a European packaging. Anyway, this phone is a true classic in style and design. It has good reception ( RF ) and solid audio. Very solid metal build, not plastic like all the new phones out there. These folks were using metal 6 years before the Moto RAZR. Works great, looks wonderful, and does not have ...

for the Nokia 6010:

for the Nokia 9300 / 9300i:
Fantastic James Bond Style Phone
This is a great all-in-one device. The form and look is very nice and professional. The keyboard is fantastic and the screen is crisp and clear. Reception on Cingular is fantastic. I dumped my Treo 650 and switched to the Nokia 9300 and there is no going back. Audio is much more crisp and clear and I get solid reception where I got nothing on the Treo. I purchased the phone for $240 brand new in the box from a seller ...

Oct 9, 2005, 4:52 PM
for the Palm Treo 650 (GSM):
Best Gadget I Ever Owned !
Purchased unlocked/unbranded GSM unit direct from Palm Website. Using on Cingular network in ABQ. The screen is just gorgeous and the look, fit, and finish is very professional and business looking. I bought a 1GB SD card for $59 at OfficeMax and the storage space is great to have. This is a key feature that my other Treos did not have, the ability to have virtually unlimited storage by adding SD cards. Cheap 2GB cards are only months away ! ...

for the Motorola RAZR V3:
The Most Wonderful Phone in the World

for the Sony Ericsson T637:
Blue Tooth is Nice !
I got this phone for $29.99 from AT&T Wireless with a new 1 year contract. The color screen is sharp, bright, and clear. The phone is a nice size, but too square and angular in shape. My biggest complaint about the phone is the somewhat poor reception. There is always a static heard in the background of every call. The phone does not drop calls, but the static is annoying. It sounds like you are talking on an old ...

Oct 12, 2002, 7:57 AM
for the Nokia 8270:
Cool Blue and You
This phone is offered by the wonderful folks at Cricket Communications here in the Albuquerque/Santa Fe area. Cricket offers you unlimited wireless calling 24/7 for $32.99 per month. Nice ! This phone is small and looks cool. It has all the features you need and leaves out all the ones you never use. The changeable faceplates are nice and look great. Avoid the ones made by third parties that are cheaply made, do not fit correctly and void the ...

for the Palm Treo 300:
Best PDA/Phone Period !!
Once you own this little gem you will never again own, want, or need a seperate wireless phone and PDA. The Treo 300 combines both devices into a small unit that easily fits into your pocket. The screen is sharp and the color vivid. Audio is clear and crisp and you can run thousands of existing Palm applications. The keyboard is an extremely useful feature. I will NEVER go back to a phone or PDA without a full QWERTY ...

for the Siemens S40:
This Phone is Pure Class
Very attractive phone. Very low radiation level. Nice reception. Works all over the world in GSM areas. I use with Voicestream in Albuquerque NM. If you are an international traveler - buy this phone.

for the Samsung SPH-I300:
The best phone ever made period.
This is a wonderful phone/pda combination. I take it everwhere I go. Thousands of software titles to choose from, many are freeware. The phone has rock solid, loud and clear reception. Virtually never a dropped call. The screen is nice and clear and colors are solid. Throw out your old obsolete PDA and cell phone and buy this product. Definitely very, very cool. Thanks Samsung !
