What's an "unlocked phone?"

Purchasing an unlocked handset gives you more handset options to choose from and more flexibility as to where you use it. Because an unlocked handset isn't tied to a particular service provider, it can be used with any service provider in the world that operates on a SIM card-based GSM network. Simply place an activated SIM card in the handset and you'll enjoy the same or similar service. Some premium features may not be available. SIM card sold separately. Speak with your current service provider for more details.

Not So Good

Bought for daughter in law, it has a very slow processor comparing to my phone, which I won't name. Apps haven't crashed on her yet, but she only uses it for texting, and it's ok for that.

Don't waste your time or money on this phone

This phone is the worst, four days in and it acts like it's four years old: it crashes every time I open an installed app, can't hold a charge, glitches every time you open YouTube or chrome. I regret spending [price] on this phone. Polaroid should stick to making cameras, not phones.

Microphone is bad.

Purchased this phone about a month ago. For the first couple of weeks, people complained about not being able to hear me well, but at least they could hear something. Then the microphone started to simply not work at all some times, while working very poorly other times. I could only place or answer voice calls using a headphone. I complained to SouthernTelecom who told me to reset the phone to factory, which I did. This did not fix the problem, and a few days later the phone stopped working with the headphone. SouthernTelecom said they would replace the phone but I had to ship it to them first, then wait 2-3 weeks to receive a replacement. Who can stay a month without a cell phone these days? This phone is only an option if all you do is texting. If you are still into talking to people, pick something else.

Great for the Price

Love this cellphone. Can't be beat for the price. Good battery life and it does most of what the other phones do. Plus you can get a pay as you play plan with call and text, without a data plan. For occasional use, it keeps the overall costs down. By the way, I was told that Virgin Mobile SIM cards don't work well with this phone, even by their staff, but it works perfectly well.

Polaroid Link 8 GB Smartphone

This phone works great for the price. My only complaints are that there is no light indicator that flashes when you have a text or phone call. I had to get used to pushing the keys a little higher than normal along the bottom of the key pad to get them to work. My husband complains that he can't hear me when we speak on the phone. The microphone seems really small. I have only taken indoor pictures so far and the quality is not great. I got this on sale.
