    Excellent phone

    Phone came in excellent condition and it works great. I bought it because I needed a new phone. The price of Boost Mobile phones are incredibly low and they make good phones.

    Gets the job done

    I bought the phone with a few specific goals in mind:

    1. Cheap prepaid wireless voice and data. Boost Mobile offers these services (10 cents per minute voice, 35 cents per day for unlimited wireless web).

    2. I wanted to receive Facebook updates and Google Maps transit directions. The Opera Mini browser (version 3.2) works well with both of these sites. The mgmaps app gives me basic navigation (local search, driving directions, etc.). All of these apps are free, but somewhat difficult to install. I had to download developer utilities from Motorola to install the apps since Boost Mobile wants you to use their app store.

    The phone screen is pretty small and it is a little slow running the apps.

    The GPS works very well. Sound quality was average.

    It's a great cheap phone if you want to play around with wireless apps.

    Good phone for inexpensive price

    Basic phone with walkie talkie feature. You can also use this phone as a tracking device with the right program for a very inexspensive price.

    This was a very easy transaction. I got the phone quicker than I thought I would. The phone was used but I couldnt tell. It was in perfect condition- still had its shine. I could tell it was hardly used.
