    I LOVE THE WILDCARD. I GOT IT FOR CHRISTMAS AND IT IS FANTASTIC. IT WOULD BE BETTER IF THERE WAS A MP3 PLAYER ON IT.

    this phone is the biggest piece of crap i have ever wasted a bill on.
    it has done nothing but mess up since i but it.
    and its gotten worse in the past two months that ive had it.
    no one ever gets my txt.
    i never get mine.
    my phone cuts itself off.
    a while bar goes across my screen.
    the screens blanks out when i close it.
    it resets itself to default.
    vibrate mode often doesnt work.
    it freezes up daily.
    and the list goes on.
    in short F*** this phone.

    I LOVE THIS PHONE!!!

    i got it yesterday and havent put it down since. it takes a while to set up service, but it is TOTALLY worth it.

    the full keyboard makes it WAY easier to text people.

    i would definately recomend this phone to anyone who likes to text =]

  27. Camel

    This phone is awsome. I got the speaicl edtion at best buy for the same price as the black one. I txt 24/7 all the time. I recamend this phone to anyone. I wood get something else but I have to pay for it my self. And pay as you go is the best way to go if u have to pay for it your self. But the camera is crapie in the dark with the flash. That is one bad thing and the only bad thing on this phone. Thanks for reading. If you have any qesution email me at RyGuy145@aim.com. And leave your email so I can get back to you.

  28. La'Meraa

    people okay if u want the wildcard or is about to pay your $ to buy it…
    [DO NOT GET IT)…its a waist of your[or your parents $)…yea i thought it was cute or would not an it had the keyboard but im tellin u looks can be deceiving.it may work fine for a couple months but trust it will start acting up.i am on my second wildcard phone an on my second charger.an matters of fact i just got this phone 4 days ago an its already completely dead because it wont charge…but virgin mobile has ALOT of upgrading to do….seriously.

  33. Julie

    OMG! i love this phone and picked it over the new sidekick. I really want it and if they give me insurance i will cuz all you guys are saying that it freezes so that means some of them must have troubleshooting and stuff. but i just hope i get a good one cuz ii am gettin it thursday with the 49.99 monthly plan that includes unlimited night n wknds plus 600 whenever minutes and 10.00 for unlimited pix im email and txt now that is so awesome and mobile eb is only 1.00 a day pass or 5.99 a month pass. I just want this phone so bad so i can start texting people all day…
    thats just 69.99 for a good plan. I think its cool n it has bluetooth.

  36. Steve

    I got the Wild Card Special Edition. I’ve had it for aweek now and I love it. Ive had 3 phones in the past 2 years. I have to say they were okay. But this phone is GREAT!!!!!!!!!! I have had no issues with it. I have better signal I will agree the battery dies quick but over all its worth what I paid for it… Im glad I got the extra insurance just in case…… I do recommend the phone.

  37. nunya
