Crappy Phone Review by Monico
Product
I can't believe I got this phone. UGH!! My HTC phone (which I miss dearly), broke so, I needed a replacement quick. I pawn some PS3 games to get this phone. Biggest mistake---EVER!!! It is slow and reboots by itself. I wish I had my HTC back. I threw this phone when I couldn't make a phone call, then it worked. Hate ZTE! (Posted on 12/1/2014)

Define "snappy" Review by Jenny
Product
I don't do much with the phone, but for some reason, when dialing local municipal phone numbers (court, water co., landfill), it requires the area code. And the "snappy" camera takes awful photos. (Posted on 11/12/2014)

Don't Review by Richards
Product
This phone can barely handle phone calls. Pandora, jams the phone, loading music and playing, jams the phone, turning off the mail notifier, it turns back on again. Programs constantly open on their own, draining the battery, and many times when a program is on, the only way to turn it off, is to shut off the phone and remove the battery; because the phone will not see it on, even though all icons show it on.
Over all, this is a cheap phone Cricket gives when you are now forced to go with a smart phone, and it is just that, cheap. Forget about reception, everyone else, and my old messaging phone had better reception than this phone I will be replacing it shortly. As it is not even worth the 29.00 I paid for it. I should have been paid to take it. (Posted on 10/9/2014)
