I cannot believe Nokia chose to brand this thing. As many may already know, this phone is actually made by Pantech, but branded as a Nokia for marketing.

PROS:
-Black color makes it look semi-cool
-Good size and weight

CONS:
-The screen is way too small, which normally isn't a problem, but the Verizon UI menu icons fill half the screen and leave almost no room for a wallpaper or to see the options in each submenu. Options with a long name wont fit on the screen.
-It appeared that only 2-3 lines of text (maybe 4 in some spots) are visible at a time.
-The dialing font is way too small and does not increase when set on large.
-Reception is mediocre
-Feels flimsy

I'll admit, I never bought this phone, but tried it out in a store for 20 minutes. That said 20 minutes was long enough to know that there are better options available for Verizon customers. If a phone is to be labeled as basic it should be easy to use and have features such as a large font, and easy to navigate menus. This one fails at both. The Verizon UI is a nearly unavoidable feature on Verizon's new phones so it's hardly worth listing as a con. However, on almost every other Verizon phone with this UI, the dialing font is huge and the menu options are at least readable. If you're looking for a basic Nokia, look for the upcoming 2366i, which is a true Nokia and has the Nokia interface. If price is the deciding factor, you can still get better phones in this price range such as the LG VX-5200/5300, the Motorola V325 or Samsung A870.
