Terrible terrible phone. My troubles started the day I got this phone and just did not end. I had to replace with a new phone of a different model.

The phone reboots often, and rather spontaneously. Twice, the phone completely froze and there was nothing I could do other than give it in the care center and wait for them to fix it. After 3 months of getting it, it started rebooting so much that I could not send an SMS or make a single call. The phone would reboot every time I used it. Worst part is that mine is not an isolated case. I checked with friends who have the same phone and all of them complained. I also checked on their website and many other consumers are complaining of the same. My recommendation – DO NOT BUY THIS PHONE. This one is too expensive to take a chance with
