I just got my phone on Saturday ($80 used on ebay from phonestoreusa). I loved it until I noticed a big blue circle burned into the screen. Good to know that I can exchange, which I will do ASAP. The phone was flawless except for swirl scratches in the upper right part of the phone where it had been physically tethered. These are definitely display models.
UPDATE: Just got my replacement phone yesterday. No screen burn in phonestoreusa has great customer service; don't be afraid to buy from them and don't be afraid to get the $80 phone in great condition. I did a full night's charge. Now let's see how it performs today.
Were these the same listings they have up now that say "2/5" condition?
I have one that I gave to my mom after I upgraded but it's actually 1.5Ghz Snapdragon S3 cores and you can't overclock it any more than that. Pretty fast phone in general though some issues with storing things on the SD card because of the skin and Google Music flips out and tries to store all the cached songs on the main app partition and uses up all your space, oh and Google Voice integration is totally broken in the dialer (voicemails crash the dialer, you see the calls as going to the google voice # in the logs, etc.) It's a good phone for the money no doubt but definitely not high end and the camera is plainly terrible.
Hey, did you ever figure out the issue with Google Music? I bought this device to utilize my All Access subscription, however when I attempt to Pin some albums...I get a "Memory almost full" message. There are over 11GB free internally! If you have any advice I would appreciate it. I contacted Google, but with my experience, they won't help.
A few notes after testing this exact phone (a few of them, actually) on PTel Mobile:
PTel, in conjunction with Google Voice has a few minor issues:
-call quality is acceptable, but not great... getting volume right seems to affect voice, touchy
-When calling over WiFi with GrooVeIP, the calls are fantastic, but when you call another person, a bug causes your Pantech Burst to automatically switch to "speaker mode." Just quickly click the speaker icon twice to turn it off--annoying but not the end of the world. Contact http://www.snrblabs.com/ to report this bug (the more, the better).
-The speakerphone is horrible FOR THE PERSON ON THE OTHER END and they will experience echo. Fix anyone?
-Feedback that the camera sucks is greatly overexaggerated, imho, seems to work fine for a 5mp phone camera.
I'm looking for similar feedback about using this phone on the $30 T-Mobile unlimited data plan (100 voice mins., unlimited text, unlimited data w/1st 5g at 4g LTE where available).
