Pantech Link II (AT&T) review:

 

Most cell phone carriers in the United States now sell three types of handsets. Fancy smartphones like the iPhone 4S appeal to people who want it all, basic handsets like the AT&T F160 are for anyone who just needs to communicate, and feature phones...

The Pantech Link II has a simple, user-friendly design with admirable call quality. The pop-up menu when making calls is fantastic.

Pantech Link II (AT&T)

"Fantastic Alternative to Smart Phones"

 

Overall, I am very pleased with this phone. Since smart phones generate so much addition cost, I am perfectly content passing up the iphone 5 and Galaxy III because of how well the Pantech Link II functions. If you are looking for a brick (not a flip...

Great design

Too many shortcut buttons for internet access (makes data block almost necessary)

"Good, durable, and nice-looking phone."

 

I love this phone. I got it because I was afraid I would break a slide out texting phone, and because I didn't want to deal with a touchscreen. Since I'm a teen, my phone goes through hell and back, and this phone is ridiculously durable. I'm not...

-The screen and body of the phone get scratched pretty easily, so buy a screen protector and a case. (no big deal, I bought a screen protector and case from Amazon for about 5 dollars)
