The good: The Pantech Breeze II has a slim design with quick access keys, a 1.3-megapixel camera, 3G, a music player, stereo Bluetooth, and more.
The bad: The Pantech Breeze II's keypad is a little flush to the surface of the phone.
The bottom line: Even though it's billed as an entry-level flip phone, the Pantech Breeze II comes with solid midrange features for a very affordable price.
Great simple phone with lots of features/HAC also
by prr929 on May 15, 2010
Pros: Works great with hearing aids. Also has loud speaker and voice dial and commands.
Quick call and speed dialing make calling easy.
Can adjust font style and size
Cons: No qwerty keyboard for texting.

Summary: This is a great phone for people who like flip phones instead of bar phones. It is simple to learn how to use it and the manual that comes with it is printed in large enough type to actually read it. Even my son commented that all phones should have manuals like this!
If you have a hearing problem or want letters big enough to actually read ( and numbers too) this is the phone for you.
It has lots of features that you can use for free without a data plan.
The only things on the outside of the spine of the phone are the volume buttons and the charger port so you don't accidentally open some application you don't want to.
You can actually read the clock on the outside display.
It's fairly easy to see the screen in the bright sunlight.
Overall this phone works very nicely for a good solid basic phone. It's a little longer than you might expect, but that makes it feel like a real phone when you are talking, and it's slim and lightweight.
If you are a senior or just someone who wants a great basic phone this is it! You will like it!

Be careful - OK button is same as Internet Access
by BucketowaterFit on December 9, 2010
Pros: Text messages are kept in conversation style.
Cons: My 72 yr old mother keeps accessing internet & so AT&T keeps charging us for its access. The internet button is the SAME as the "OK" button. She sends pictures, but hits "OK" all the time, and we get charged for 'turning on' internet.

Summary: Out of all of the phones in the store, this one had the best clarity for her hearing device. Although, after months of using it her complaints are...Battery runs out quickly and still can't hear. I believe its because she continues to lose hearing. Battery, I don't know.

They lie!!! My 7 year old Nokia works better.
by tonydisk on April 5, 2011
Pros: Looks nice, decent screen, simple menu, decent range.
Cons: HORRIBLE battery life, about 50 hours with minimal talk and NO data (not the hours and hours of talk and 10 day standby time promoted by the spec sheets). Speakerphone very poor, causes echos and high pitched squealing at the other folks end (just the thi

Summary: We got booted off our old att plan, were told our 2 Nokia 6200IM 's would not work. First lie they would work on a 3g network. Second lie, we believed the reviews form the tech editors at cnet and other places concerning call quality, battery life etc. Those folks must all drink magic kool-aid together. Yes these are going back. Sadly the reviews of the Nokia 6350 aren't much better. You simply can't tell me in the seven years+ since they made the Nokia 6200 the hardware could not be better. Unless of course greed and arrogance have infected at&t to the extent marketing and sales have forgotten that some people buy a Cell Phone to make PHONE CALLS (wow what a concept)

Good Phone for the money.
by chesskix on July 29, 2011
Pros: Easy to use and has a simple mode to make it even easier. Well laid out and has a full set of features including GPS.
Cons: GPS does not work all that well and Mobil Web is very slow. E-mail not included in Unlimited Data Plan. Most if not all of these problems are more related to ATT than the phone. Battery life is very poor.

Summary: I probably should have shopped longer for the best phone but this one will do.Another down side of this phone is you can't select custom ring tones for people in your address book. That is a useful feature that I miss.

Very nice basic phone
by bullyforyou on June 17, 2011
Pros: Good call quality, simple formatting, easy to program, nice photos, versatility on a basic phone.
Cons: The speaker phone is poor. I returned my first device immediately because of the distortion on the speaker phone. My second phone's sepaker phone started out fine, but later ended up with the same distortion, not on MY end, but on the other end. I nee

Summary: Overall a very reliable, straight forward phone. If you don't need all of the stellar gizmos on your phone, get this one. I really do like it in spite of the speaker issue.Addendum: After taking the phone into AT&T, it was discovered that there was an outdated SIM card in the phone, causing issues with the speaker phone. After updating the SIM card the speaker phone was pristine. The only time I have an issue is in an area where connectivity is marginal. I am delighted to now have use of the speaker phone again!

Updated on Jun 15, 2012This phone has been great for me. The call quality has been excellent. This is most important to me, as I am primarily concerned with making calls and texting. This phone delivers. I will be checking out the Breeze III, which has gotten very good reviews also.

Summary: My husband just got this phone with an upgrade and he is very pleased with it. He had the samsung evergreen but returned it because of the small keys and difficult navigation. This flip phone is easy to navigate and the call quality is great. If you want a basic phone without all the bells and whistles this is a great choice.
Good phone for Seniors
by chatty-kathy on February 5, 2011
Pros: Large font on display, easy to use.
Cons: Not compatible with Honda Odyssey Bluetooth and loud echo and noises when speaking with someone that has a Apple IPhone4. Customer Service at both ATT and Pantech apathethic to the issue.

Summary: Phone purchased as a gift for my Sr. Parents; they like the phone but disappointed that they are unable to use the phone using the BlueTooth on the 2011 Honda Odyssey Van and the fact that the call clarity is non-existent when communicating with Apple's IPhone 4...turn on the speaker on either phone and very loud squeels on the line making it impossible to have a conversation.
Good phone for Granny (me)
by shariuno on January 1, 2011
Pros: Ease of use, legibility of display
Cons: If camera shutter button (right side) and voice recognition button (left side) were swapped, the camera would be much easier for right-handed people to use.
Summary: It is a good basic phone, which is what I need. I don't text, don't access internet. I'd like GPS, but not at $10 a month; Garmin ...

Nice phone for the over 50 crowd..That's me!
by mcforty on October 26, 2010
Pros: Easy menus, large font, small size, weight, battery life
Cons: I wear a hearing aid and speech seems muffled compared to my Motorola and especially bad in noisy environments. Camera in low light.

Summary: I like this phone a lot and despite the problem I sometimes have hearing the caller it is good enough. It has one of the brightest displays I've seen. No more searching menus to find stuff and the 3 hot keys allow me to call my family with just a push of the button. The camera doesn't seem very good in low light. The ringer is loud and the vibrator is strong so that is great for people like me that can't hear very well. The speaker works good and I had no problem hearing the voice directions on TeleNAV GPS. It seems very well built and will stand up to some abuse. I've had it off the charger for 2 days and have about 15 minutes in calls and 30 minutes on the GPS with the phone on standby the rest of the time and the battery shows 71%-100% charge. That's amazing...

by auntka on September 27, 2010
Pros: It's easy to use, peripherals like bluetooth ear piece, case, car charger all came with my upgrade. I have made a few calls and the call quality, both local and long distance was excellent!
Cons: Don't have any as yet.

- Manufacturer: Pantech & Curitel
- Part number: 4530249
- Description: A classic just gets better with age. Pantech's Breeze II is faster and gives users flexibility to browse the Web or manage email in addition to making calls and sending messages, thanks to AT&T's high-speed 3G network. The front cover has three lighted indicators to quickly let you know if you have a voice mail, have missed a call, or are running low on battery. As with the original Breeze, ease of use is key. Unique quick call keys make it EZ to access numbers you use most. The bright display, streamlined menus, and large keys are EZ to read. Use the ''say a command'' feature to make calls, address text messages, and look up contacts without scrolling through menus.
