I use my phone only for making phone calls - not for listening to music or surfing online - so I didn't need a smart phone. I wanted a cheap phone, just something to make emergency calls, and text if needed. I like that you pay as you go, and are not stuck with a contract. I don't have trouble with reception, and would recommend this phone for someone who just needs a basic, no-frills phone.
