I am not a cell phone person - if it went missing and I never found it I wouldn't care. However, I have it and this seems like a good basic phone. It is not all fancy pants. You can text with it but would be a bit time consuming if you are long winded - good for short stuff, with a telephone key pad conversion (ex 2 = abc etc). As I said in my tag line takes a lickin and keeps on ringin is very true for this phone - it has taken the brunt of my anger somedays and has been lauched into wall a few times, once resulting the back cover coming off and the battery popping out. Put it back together, turned it on and it was fine. I can't talk to water resistance as I haven't submerged it, yet! Camera feature is ok takes decent pictures for a phone. Though I do need to clean out all of the "purse" pictures from it sometimes. There is a camera button on the side of the phone that will activate it and then also take pictures, that is probably one of the few things I don't really like about it. Is bluetooth capable as well. overall if you just want something basic then this is a good phone.
