Comments about Virgin Mobile ZTE Reef No-Contract Smartphone:

This phone is okay, except for the fact it deleted everything on my sd card . As far as being water proof, i dropped my phone in the rain didn't notice it was outside until twenty minutes later and it still works perfectly fine.

    Comments about Virgin Mobile ZTE Reef No-Contract Smartphone:

    I bought this because of it being water resistant. I have gotten it wet multiple times and it still keeps going. I've had this phone since December. Only problem so far is that my web browser keeps fragging with what you're looking at. Like it has a bug or something. But overall this is a great phone. And two of my friends have it as well.

    Comments about Virgin Mobile ZTE Reef No-Contract Smartphone:

    I bought this maybe a couple months ago, and about a week after I got it, I dropped it about 3.5 feet and the screen broke. After that it was good enough until just recently it starts freezing up, sometimes it won't let me press anything, I can't pull down the notification bar, it now is just all around a piece of junk. But before that all started happening, it was an okay phone. Nothing special, except the waterproof thing, but I never got to test it because, as previously stated, the screen cracked.

    Comments about Virgin Mobile ZTE Reef No-Contract Smartphone:

    Had this for about 4 months now with no problems. Does everything any Android phone will do, but I wish it would vibrate stronger and have a better notification LED. I often miss calls and texts when the sound is turned off. I also have to recharge the battery if I'm going to use it into the evening.
