Great phone, however, I would prefer that it would stay on at all times until I decided to cut it off. When you receive a text message the phone has a tendency to just shut itself off unless you are in the same room at the time of receiving the text in order to respond, otherwise you will be unaware that your phone is off until you try to text or call someone.

I have owned this phone for less than a year. It is constantly turning itself off. I have missed countless important phone calls and texts. Very frustrating. I don't recommend this phone at all.

I had the original Cosmo and was happy with it for the basic phone it was. This phone as been one disappointment after another. The quality of the calls is not good. The person I am talking to complains they can not understand me and that is only if the call is not dropped. The phone constantly turns itself off.

I love this phone. It does have a lot of features. So many in fact, for me, I have owned it for 4-5 months and am still finding new things. I am not computer or cell phone savvy so sometimes it gets a bit frustrating or overwhelming. That is not the phones fault though! I do wish the instructions were broken down a bit better so people like me can at least look like they know what they are doing!

Should not have taken my Samsung Galaxy III jet skiing. The Cosmos functions very much the same except for internet. It is completely useless. Samsung uses opera mini and functions like normal internet. Cosmos uses Verizon internet and moves like a scroll. Sites are not even close to the same. Otherwise, phone call quality is so much better-no cutting out or missed words-very clear. If you want to text and use a phone as a phone this one is a very good basic phone. If you want the total package with internet, try something else.

Texting slide out keyboard is just plain awful. The phone is so slippery that when you slide the keyboard out you have to hang on to it and type with one hand, otherwise you can't get a grip on it to type with both thumbs keyboard style. It also runs contant updates that freezes the screen. I've had the phone for 2 full days and have dropped 5 calls. Worst phone I've ever had.

I've had this phone since April 2013 with no problems. The battery life is great. I charge it once a week and I'm on it all the time with my boyfriend. It's great you can text two ways, by the numbers (front) or slide it open. The only cons are you can't stop the backup assistant coming on everyday and no video.

Phone is okay but has not video capabilities which means I can't record or even watch a video if I receive one! I have a 1 year old so I love watching videos of her my wife sends, but with this phone, I can't! Wish I had realized this before I got this phone!

My husband and I both have this phone. We have had them for years. We mainly use it for talking and texting. Mine is getting on the old side (4 years) so I'm looking to upgrade to the same phone, just a newer model. We both have dropped ours many times and they just keep on working. Since mine is so old, I'm starting to have issues with the battery not keeping a charge. My husband's only complaint is that texting is a little difficult because he has big fingers. That is the only thing we have had an issue with since using this model of phone for over 4 years.

I just wanted a phone to talk and text with because I did not want the internet on my phone. I had the LG Envy 3 (this phone was awesome) and it went bad on me after 3 1/2 years. I wanted a phone that worked as well as this one. I thought this phone would meet up to expectations. It did not. The buttons are so close that most of the time I dial, I have to do it 2 or 3 times. Texting is even worse. I bought a side pouch to store this phone. After getting done talking or texting, I try to put the phone back in my pouch and it pushes buttons, sometimes activating the internet. This phone is junk and I will be replacing it today.
