this phone is amazing!!! it is so strong you have no idea. you can drop and drop this phone a million times and it will still work perfectly! i used to know this person who built houses and he always dropped this phone. he had it for over 5 years and it still worked! and you have to remember it wasn't a phone that he used once a while he was always constantly on it and it worked perfect even after being abused for 5 years.. this is definately a very very basic phone but it's perfect for those of you who don't care about the camera or music. this is also a very good starter phone because many phones now are very complicated so it's good to start off with something very basic and simple. something you can learn from and use that towards a new phone. it's also good because you might see what you like about it and what you're missing out on. i would definately buy this phone over and over again.
