    • Gaile Smothers says

      I have had nothing but problems with this phone. It is not user friendly. No manual comes with it but to make things worse downloading the manual on my computer takes forever – and then I rarely find an answer to the questions I have. I would never recommend this phone to any person.

  7. kim says

    How do you delete a number that you sent an email to? There isn’t an option in the drop down menu to delete it. It isn’t in my contacts list, but the number is listed as an option to send an email to and I need it deleted. Any response would be helpful. Thank you.

  8. bertha says

    I cannot move or transfer text messages from this phone to my pc. I am wanting to print them out but I cannot find how to do it. I have a memory card, it allows me to transfer pictures but not text messages, not text message with pictures, just want to print my text messages out.

    • Suluh says

      It seems you must do it manually. Otherwise, If you have an Android phone, save the sms to your sim card, insert it to your Android device. After that you can use SMS to Text application (download from Play Store) and then send the txt file to your PC.

  9. Mike A. Christensen says

    You guys made an error by saying “there is no operating system on this phone” just because it runs on Java. That’s not true. In order to run any software like Java or otherwise, the device HAS to have an OS.
