While this phone functions, it does so with a few caveats. I have owned several of these due to needing refurbs, as this phone was supplied as the default phone with the plan I signed up for. Previously, the battery charging system has simple ceased to work, as the terminals are designed in such a way that any pressure on the cord while the phone is charging will slowly increase the gap between the terminals. After a period of time, that meant that I could no longer charge my phone and needed a replacement.
Additionally, the newest phone I received of this model simply hangs up on people when I pick it up. While all of my acquaintances have grown accustomed to this 'feature, ' it is still rather obtrusive and is simply a pain when trying to make important correspondence. This has happened through the ownership of two straight phones, and as a result, I cannot recommend this phone to anybody.
