    So I just got this phone a few days ago for 80$ at target, since I am switching over from t-mobile from Virgin just because of the data network I downgraded for a bit.

    Any reviews on this phone from anyone who has it? Mine isn't activated yet and yes I know this is a low end phone so don't expect to hear a lot of good things.

    here are the biggest faults, considering it is the lowest price gsm android phone at the moment (w/o contract):

    a) the 512mg of built in memory is almost used up by 1/4 of tmobile bloatware apps that you cannot uninstall nor move to sd card.
    b) lack of untethered screen capture app - you can buy tethered screen capture apps but each time you power cycle or remove the battery you must connect to computer
    c) lack of flash for camera
    d) android 2.3.7

    Yes and this phone lags really bad at times, when I first got it, it was pretty snappy but now I feel since all the memory is being hogged up that I can't do anything with it, Only have 3 apps that I mainly use and the thing is always telling me how low the storage space is.

    Hey mb41186 cool memory problem with this phone one of my friend asked me to Switch off the handset, and press the POWER KEY and VOLUME DOWN key simultaneously until it got into Recovery/Upgrade mode and Press the HOME key to get in to the next interface and Use VOLUME key to select the function you need, such as reboot system now apply update from sdcard wipe data/factory reset, wipe cache partition, Use Volume up and Volume down to move the cursor, Then use volume down key to move the cursor to " wipe cache partition " , press menu key to select it. Then choose reboot system now, you phone will reboot itself and that will fix it and make sure you remove the Sd card before the reset then it showed up more memory since it wiped off temp files.
