Something awesome that discovered is that is phone changes on a standard microUSB cable, so if you already have a Kindle charger, it will work for this phone also!
It was very easy to add items to the "Go To" menu for quick access to make it silent and to check voicemail.
The only thing I don't like about this phone is that it doesn't have a screen on the outside. When a call comes in, you have to open the phone to see who is calling. Not much of an issue for me. It does have a default setting that when you open the phone during an incoming call, you can choose to answer or decline the call. It does not automatically answer when you open it.
Nice compact phone that slides easily into pocket or purse! I have been very happy with it!
This is a bare bones "calls and texts" phone, but I have to say it has fantastic reception and works for what I need it for. If you are in a bind and need a phone for temporary or basic purposes, I would highly recommend this particular one.
