    I bought this phone for my husband and he absolutly loves it. He is a type of person who doesn’t like new touch screen phones. So to make this transition smoother for him I got him this phone that combines best of both worlds and he just loves it. It gives him ability to still use keypad if he’d like as well as slowly get use to touching technics. In addition, this phone is very “good” looking: small and modern looking, which is a big plus. Also, pics are great, talk hours are great(even though it is half touch phone, easily go for three days without charging). In general, great phone for people who still would like to use keypad.
