Pantech Swift (AT&T)

 

The Pantech Swift is only average, but it's still one of your best bets for a keyboarded feature phone on AT&T.

Bright, friendly interface. Angled display. Comfortable keyboard and texting UI.

Slow performance. Poor camera. No voice dialing. Limited video playback.

Multimedia, Camera, and Conclusions For multimedia files, there's 185MB of free internal memory, along with an empty microSD card slot. My 32 and 64GB SanDisk cards worked fine. The phone is able to play AAC, MP3, WAV, and WMA music files, and sound...

Pantech Swift - purple (AT&T) review:

 

Positioned as the perfect little messaging phone, the Pantech Swift for AT&T has a cute, compact frame, a slightly tilted slider screen, and a finger-friendly menu system that works well with the mini screen. Everything about the phone, from its...

The Pantech Swift QWERTY slider is cute as a button, has an angled screen, and uses finger-friendly icons and a home button for easy navigation.

The Swift is scuffable despite its weight, its processor is extremely slow, and the touch screen is unresponsive.

The Pantech Swift is the most appealing Pantech handset on AT&T with a keyboard, but sufficient flaws keep us hesitant about recommending it widely.

Pantech Swift Review

 

If there's one company to count on when it comes to producing feature phones in this day and age, you don't need to look any further than Pantech, as they've been consistent with their offerings. Coming to the plate with the Pantech Swift, it's a...

Sturdy construction

General choppy performance ; Shoots muddy photos & videos ; Poor battery life

On one hand, parents will surely love that the Pantech Swift doesn’t require a data plan, which will obviously help in cutting down costs. However, it’s extremely difficult to like the Pantech Swift at its $69.99 on-contract price point just because it...

"decent keyboard but thats it"

- WONDERFUL keyboard :)

- User Interface or lack thereof

"Do Not Waste Your Time and Money!!!"

 

I gave this phone a 1 star rating because I am very disappointed that this NEW MESSAGING DEVICE does not have any of the main features as what most basic and smartphones have such as call reject feature and it does not have the option to allow you to...

Qwerty keyboard, touch screen, colorful and attractive.

No Call Reject Option, No option to individually lock your applications like address book, no option to customize ring tones for call or messages individually...BASIC PHONES ARE EQUIPTED with this options. Sucks real bad!!!

"Pantech Swift"

 

If your kid is wanting you to get them a cell phone and you are on the ATT network, I'd really lean towards this device. It's not that basic, but it's not that feature packed, so there is not much running up of the bill. Some options it has are, are a...

Very Flaky Function

 

Like most other reviewers, I too have issue with the Lock and screen functions on this phone. Just picking it up from any surface is enough to unlock the screen or change to another function screen. I exchanged it under warranty but the problems...

Very bad phone

 

I am not sure if they gave me a lemon or if this phone is just bad. It freezes all the time so good luck trying to do anything other than talk on it. Talking is not great either as the speaker is in a odd spot and it is very hard to hear the person you...

Horrible Phone. Do not buy!

 

This phone is the worst I have ever gotten. It easily unlocks itself in my pocket and makes calls and goes on the internet without my knowing. Now I don't have a data plan, which is why I got this phone. So I set it up so it locks with a pin number....
