    I recently purchased two of these phones, to free us from outrageous monthly “smart” phone bills and actually use a cell phone for its original intended purpose- to make occasional calls when away from home or work. No, these phones will not be confused with iPhones, but you won’t have to work a second job to pay your cell phone bill, either. They are small, easily customized, and very reasonable to operate on the 10 cents per minute plan, no monthly charges of any sort. One buys $25.00 worth of airtime, good for three months; unused minutes roll over when more time is purchased. Other plans available include $2.00 per day the phone is used, unlimited on that day, or $50.00 a month for unlimited voice, data, and text messaging. Only two small quibbles keep this phone from getting five stars- it is relatively easy to hit a wrong button and trigger internet access, or at least the beginning of internet access, which, of course, will cost you a few cents. A more serious concern is the occasional reception of unsolicited junk text messages, which cost an outrageous 20 cents each. I plan to complain to AT&T about the text messages. An internet or media block might also prevent me for being able to send a text message, so I don’t think that’s a solution, if it’s even available on these phones.
    The battery charge lasts for days, even weeks, and reception and voice quality seem excellent. If you’re tired of paying for your smart phone every month, are out of contract and looking to cut back on your expenses, these might be a good solution. We use Ooma for unlimited calling at home, which is also working out very nicely. Once your friends and family learn to use your cell only for emergencies and instead call you at work or home, you may like this phone as much as my wife and I do.

    OK I just got this for $39.99 and it seems to be a great phone, but this is my 1st cell phone, so I really wouldn’t know a bad phone and features. AT&T only has one lower priced Go Phone at $19.99, but it doesn’t have Bluetooth. This has the Bluetooth and a camera. It’s a small phone at 3 3/4″ x 2″ x 3/4″ when closed. I wanted a clam shell so I can throw it in my pocket and this fit the bill. You can also get a data plan to do the web and such but I was looking for a reasonably price phone for calls. As with all prepaid phones you have to watch your minutes and expiration, but if you get the $100.00 refill for 1000 minutes they’re good for a year and all the prepaid plans roll over the minutes balance if you refill in time. Or get a pay as you go plan and pay every month. The sound is very clear and it’s Bluetooth connection to my GPS makes it somewhat hands free. You have a lot of options if you want to get a data plan. IM, mobile email, games & apps and web connection. It’s a AT&T private brand made by ZTE phones. For more info and all the features visit :

    I have actually downgraded my phones several times simply because I don’t need all the features and with this phone you can see the screen in almost all lighting conditions. It’s simple. Effective. AT&T really didn’t like my decision, but you can actually “use” this phone in all dry working conditions. Untill they re-release the old Razor, this is your best bet.
