I really dont kno

24 hour phone
I am yet another teen that purchased this phone...and when i looked at it online, and i was extremely impressed by what i saw. i was ready for an update on my phone and being a teen i like to have the coolest and newest phones (as one of my peers on here had so wisely stated). I thought (by reading on the internet about it not by going to the store and checking it out) that this phone was it. It had the dual slider, and it looked cool. I read several good reviews on here about the phone, however i surpased the bad ones. so one day after i got out of school, i went over to my local att store and i bought it... i played with it a little bit when it was on the shelf (mostly with the sliding feature) and decided i had found my phone. however when i got home my views had severely changed. I returned it the next day...only 24 hours i owned that phone, and 24 hours will be the limit.
-QWERTY keyboard and 12 button keypad
-Battery life SUCKS I had it charged when i went to school, and it was close to dead when i got home at 12 (note: i go to school from 8-12...yeah four hours)
-QWERTY slide not spring loaded
-Camera is a piece of something that comes out of a horses rear, being a teen i like to take pictures so i use my phone for pics, and the DUO sucked for this feature.
-cannot fit inbetween shoulder and ear, i am a multitasker and where i work, i am a manager, and i have to be doing my job (that is very hands on), being a manager i am normally on my phone alot, and i usually rest it on my shoulder and press my ear against it...but i couldn't with this phone.
-when you close the phone (slide it shut) it does not hang up when you are talking to someone...that annoyed me.
I had a Blackjack before i got this one, and i loved that phone, and i choose to go with the duo instead of upgrading to the Blackjack 2, well i made a mistake. I took the duo back and exchanged it for a blackjack2

Wow this phone is not good
Cons-cheaply built, keyboard is one of the worst I had ever used,keyboard slide not spring loaded ,very small built for kids not for professional use ,
I would give this phone a 0 but it makes phone calls
waste of money !!!
this phone is one of the worst phones i have ever purchased. i work for sprint but my family has AT&T so i was excited when my parents bought me the phone for my birthday that was until i took the time to get to learn the phone i like the way the phone looks and that is pretty much it..you can not even download ring tones but you can assign them to people in your contact list that is pretty much it! the sound and speaker is horrible! and the Internet is crummy you can never get on it and i can not receive e-mails or anything! the phone is cute and that is all that is! CUTE!
Has some missing features.....
The Pantech Duo is a great phone, if you are used to having a Windows Mobile phone.
Form and fit are very good.
Speakerphone can actually be heard.
Most functions work the way
you expect them to work except one...
I can't use a music file as a ringer.
You are stuck using the default NOISES that are supplied for you.
You CAN program a music file (mp3, wma, etc. as a ringer for each person in your contact list, but not as the PHONE RINGER.
I purchased the Pantech Duo a week ago. I kept it this long trying to love it. But it is just not happening. Not for the money. It does look sharp and I like the slide to expose the number key pad. I also like the front screen. Everything is at your fingertips. But, on the other hand, The ringer is quite, There is always a reason why I can't get on the Internet. (system down, unable to connect, being updated try again later...) They charge you to death for every feature you use on the phone. The speaker is bad the picture quality from the camera is even worse. Loaded with fingerprints. Disappointed. I expected more from this phone.
This is My Birthday Phone
I love it. I is great ,stylish, and just plain cool. My only problem is personalizing it with my own ringtones. By the way the 348 pages of manual kinda help if you haven't given up on your search. I am still trying. But I like the phone. Camera pixels suck but still good.
