Not quite qhat I expected
Ok here goes nothing...
I purchased this phone yesterday from suncom and signed a 2 year contract. I had been waiting weeks for this phone to arrive before I switched my service over to them. Initially I had been very excited about this phone, and was hoping that for all of the reviews of the GU87 model I had seen those problems would be fixed. Well right now as it stands the games on my phone do not work at all. First there should be four as listed in the booklet and on their website. My phone only has two, and neither of them work. When you click on tetris it resets the phone back to the main screen and the sheep herder does nothing. When I went back to the store today the associate who sold me the phone said.. it did that on the phone I was trying out..its so new you know you are taking a chance buying it acceptable for the price. Next they still haven't seemed to fix the low volume issue. I am straining to hear it seems through the phone, and speakerphone definitely isn't better.
Sorry to make this so long, but I am upset. The camera is only ok..it does have a light that you can activate for low light areas. Honestly this light doesn't do much. The screen is vibrant and is a nice size, but it doesn't help the quality of the so-so pictures it takes. The signal does seem to bounce around, but I haven't determined if that is the phone or the service yet..I wouldn't be surprised if it was the phone. OK I wouldn't really recommend buying this phone unless they fix those issues. I know that I am returning my tomorrow.
Phone not what was expected
I purchased the phone 2 years ago, and have had nothing but problems. The antennae is very poor, I have little to no reception in many areas where other phones work fine on my system. I purchased it and a 2 yr plan with SunCom, they immediately quit selling the phone. In fact, when I call them with a problem, they insist that the phone doesn't work. I must insist that it does work, although very poorly. At the time of my purchase, it was one of the few with bluetooth. Fortunately, there are several phones on the market today; and I am looking forward to purchasing a non-Panasonic phone soon. What a waste of my money.
