Is not compatible if you want to use it as a phone under the AT&T contracted service. It is a 2G device which is no longer servicable with the AT&T network.

Third one I've bought!


Jan 14, 2013 by patwackp

This is the third one I've bought and I'm keeping it for myself. Two other's were for family.

We all use them for the $50 GoPhone AT&T service.
I use mine in Austin,Tx. and theirs are in Northern Califonia (Bay Area).

We all LOVE them just because of their simplicity. They are a PHONE. Not a computer.

The battery life is amazing. Keeps charged for days without using a car charger.

They are great for Basic usage. Bought them at Best Buy for $19.99+tax.

Sold low end phone


Jul 6, 2012 by arios

If you are looking for something that does more then calls texts and LIGHT data use then look elsewhere. Now on the the phone itself. Fist off solid hinge nice bit too glossy though and no outside screen would have really been nice as you have to open the phone to see who is calling. The screen on the inside is low res but very bright and easy on the eyes when compared to other phones in this price range. It has no extras like bluetooth camera or even a headset jack separate from the charging port. no volume control on the outside just a charging jack. cannot change from default wallpapers without buying more from att. Browser on the phone is all but useless a lot of the time the text on the web pages is not displayed properly or at all. While this phone does have 3g It can only be guessed that this is to provide voice coverage in 3g only areas which are few but increasing because it is a bit overkill for the browser that is included. Overall this is a solid calling only phone for someone who is on a tight budget needs a replacement or just wants something to call and text with.
