Pantech Jest 2 (Verizon Wireless) review:


Feature phones like the Pantech Jest 2 for Verizon Wireless are pretty rare these days, so I have to get in a different frame of mind when one lands on my desk. "Remember," I tell myself, "It's supposed to be a simple device, so don't get too picky...

The Pantech Jest 2 has a straightforward interface and a few welcome features beyond the basics.

The Jest 2's call quality was below par and its keyboard is too small. Its Web browser wasn't worth the trouble.

The Pantech Jest 2 brings decent features for a cheap price, but its flat call quality and square shape don't do it any favors.

Pantech Jest 2 (Verizon Wireless)


The Pantech Jest 2 on Verizon Wireless is no longer a bad joke like the first model, but it's still not appealing unless your needs are very modest.

Improved controls. Comfortable to hold and type on.

Cheesy styling. Poor voice quality. Non-standard headphone jack. Awful camera. No 3G.

Camera and Conclusions The 2-megapixel camera has no flash or auto-focus, and is, to put it bluntly, a total disaster. There's about a second of delay between when you hear the shutter sound and when the photo is actually taken, meaning you'll have to...

"Pretty much always was horrid!"


Got this phone brand new with a new contract. I had one, my father had one, and my grandfather (on a separate plan) had one. My fathers phone's camera went out twice (seems to be a first as no one else complained of this), the keyboard on mine would...

"It works alright"


I am content with the phone since I am interested in a basic call and text only phone, but it has it's issues. I have dropped it with it's plastic cover many times and it still works great.

flip out keyboard, great battery, easy navigating, handles drops well

alarm doesn't go off on time, camera is less to be desired, text msg memory is super low, I am always having to delete msgs every few days

"Great little phone!!"


You need to understand this IS a basic messaging phone. The above review complained about it freezing on AIM, but you have to upgrade to the new Verizon software. I have had no issues with this little phone. It isn't a smartphone, so don't expect it to...

Battery life lasts about 3 to 4 days on stand by. Nice small pocket size. Awesome screen clarity!

None so far!!
