Review: Pantech Jest

Is It Your Type? Body The Three S's

The Pantech Jest is a cute messaging phone for Verizon Wireless that skips the expensive data options but still offers messaging and social skills.

Is It Your Type?

The Pantech Jest is a short little messaging phone with a cute look and a slide-out, QWERTY keyboard. It lacks 3G networking, which means you don't have to pay for a more expensive data plan, but tries to keep up with social networking trends by adding a few shortcuts to the mix. If you're interested in a very basic phone that can handle some light messaging tasks as well, the Pantech Jest has the right mix of features. But did it deliver? Find out in Phone Scoop's in-depth look.

No 3G?

Maybe I'm missing something, but why is there a "CDMA 3G" sticker on the phone in the Form:Body section (fifth picture)?

So, in conclusion--

--it ain't built too well. The keyboard is WAY too small. It can't hold a signal too well. And people sound muddy during calls.

I can't wait to get this thing.
