I do like this phone. It's not expensive but it's not like a super cheap Go phone. It provided a good alternative for my juggling two phones with the dual sim inside. My only warning is that when I unboxed it, the booklet was written in Chinese and the handset itself booted to the Chinese language. Consequently I could not read any of the menus to see what I was doing. After my initial panic, I had to search Google on how to perform a hard reset on this phone to get the option to change the language to English.

This is the first phone I got that cannot connect to T-Mobile's high speed "3.5g" and I can only get extremely poor EDGE, which is constantly bordering on disconnected and dial-up speed.
This is the first phone I've gotten that is NOT compatible with any high speed T-Mobile coverage. Despite the note in the description stating it's compatible with T-Mobile, it is not. At least not for the useful data connection in my well-covered area. (it's lacking 1700 frequency for my area in the US).

There's the matter of it being Windows which hurts the app situation a bit, but for what it is, it's a solid performer. Some features out of the box are nice, such as quiet time, where you...
NOT fully compatible with Straight Talk / T-Moble in the US, despite what the description says. The phone lacks the frequencies needed to work with T-Mobile's 3G network, so you are stuck with Edge connectivity, which is very, very slow. BUYER BEWARE- If you are a US customer of any T-Mobile network provider, you will not be able to use 3G data.
