Product description

And from the touchscreen, you can activate the Drawing Commander feature, which allows for calls to be made, messages to be opened, or favorite apps to be accessed by simply tracing a shape with a finger.

The Pantech Laser is equipped with a bright 3.1-inch AMOLED touchscreen and slide-out full QWERTY keyboard (see larger image).

    AT&T Services

    High-speed data connectivity via AT&T's 3G mobile broadband data network: The dual-band 850/1900 MHz 3G network provides up to 3.6/7.2 Mbps of download speed, making it possible to enjoy a variety of feature-rich wireless multimedia services, and it gives you the advantage of offering simultaneous voice and data services.

    In areas where the 3G network is not available, you'll continue to receive service on the AT&T EDGE network, which offers availability in more than 13,000 US cities and along some 40,000 miles of major highways. Providing average data speeds between 75-135Kbps, it's fast enough to support a wide range of advanced data services, including full picture and video messaging, high-speed color Internet access, and email on the go.

    The full-featured, premium AT&T Navigator GPS navigation application includes audible turn-by-turn directions, real-time traffic updates and re-routing options, and 3D moving maps (additional charges applicable). AT&T Navigator offers several other features to make your commute more enjoyable and reliable, including mobile access to Yellowpages.com. Additionally, AT&T Navigator is the only mobile phone-based GPS service that provides integrated speech recognition for address entry and points of interest search.

    AT&T Mobile Music enables you to buy tracks while on the go, access the Napster and eMusic subscription music services, stream music video, discover what's playing with Music ID song-recognition software, and find out what's hot with The Buzz music news portal.

    AT&T's Video Share service enables you to send a live, one-way video stream to another compatible phone during a standard voice call. The service also allows you to switch the direction of the video stream during the same phone call. (Customers must be in an area served by the company's 3G network and have a Video Share-enabled phone.) While using Video Share with family and friends is a fun way to communicate, it's also very useful for business. For example, a majority of users in the architecture, engineering and construction industries rated the ability to share live video through Video Share highly, according to research commissioned by AT&T. Video Share lets you see progress on a job site or review the day's work without having to drive from an office or other site to do so.

      AT&T Address Book service: With the free AT&T Address Book service, you can sync your contacts to an online address book, enabling you to access and manage your mobile contacts from your handset--or your PC. From the online interface, you can import contacts from other Web-based address books, such as personal e-mail accounts, as well as send text messages to your contacts' mobile numbers.

Worthless and a waste of time ?

Verified Purchase
It isn’t even compatible with AT&T. So upset that I took the time to take it in for service that already existed with AT&T and they said it would not work because it’s 3G and they no longer use 3G. Besides the point it was advertised as compatible ?‍??

Nice on the surface but very disappointing
Reviewed in the United States ?? on October 30, 2010
I wanted to upgrade my phone but I didn't want to pay for a data plan. So I started looking for a good candidate in the text and messaging phone category. Sure enough, all the bells and whistles go to the smart phones. Just don't expect to find anything fancy in this category. Everything is pretty basic in every style and manufacturer. Having said that, the Laser from Pantech seemed to be special. Not a smart phone yet, but the design, hardware and software, gives it a feel somewhat close to those expensive phones. Well, just in the surface, I found. So after using it every day for a couple of weeks this is my review:

The Good:
- Sleek design. Thin, light, nice screen and the right size for your pocket.
- Touch screen. Nice feature. It works fine. Remember that this is not an iPhone tough.
- Menus are intuitive and all seem to be in the right place. Good job here.
- Keyboard. Excellent. Typing is great, excellent for messaging.
- Camera. Good enough. Easy to use. Intuitive interface.

The Bad:
- Ok, I was not looking for a smart phone but I was looking for a phone! The call quality is poor. AT&T is ok in my area. So it's not the carrier. At times you are going to find yourself putting effort understanding what people are saying. This never happened with my previous phone.
- The speaker is just a joke. Yes, it's the time for Bluetooth and so on, but you need a good speaker sometimes. Well, forget it. Put all the volume up and still if you are outdoors for example you will have a hard time hearing anything. You will end up putting it close to your ear... So what is the speaker for...?
- The battery life is a misery. After doing few things with the phone the charge bar started to get down pretty quickly. At the end on the day without doing much with the phone you will find the charge at 25%...
I'm returning the phone today... Yes, my old Blackberry Curve with the clunky software and all still is a very good phone...

Surprising number of flaws
Reviewed in the United States ?? on September 30, 2011
First I'd like to say that I'm going to try and only state facts, and I'm not typing an angry diatribe like I see many people do on reviews. That said, I probably won't list off all of the issues I've come across since there are many and I didn't write them all down.

SUMMARY: In a nutshell, this phone has more quirks and hassles than I'd like to deal with, and there's a good chance you'll feel that way too, especially if you use your phone as an organizer like me.

I'm sure there's plenty of reviews that say good things about it, so let's jump straight to the con's:
-out of the box, the BATTERY LASTED LESS THAN 24 HOURS. AT&T sent me a new battery, and this one lasts just under 2 days. I'm not sure, but I think there's comparable phones out there with longer battery life.

-You can zoom using the camera while taking a picture, but when you go to the picture, you CANNOT ZOOM in on it beyond filling the screen with the picture.

-There is a very SHORT LENGTH LIMIT to NOTES. The limit is 100 characters, which is less than a full page on the screen.

-There is a LIMITED memory for the calender. I have scheduled 3 weeks worth of appointments on my calendar, and now it says "Memory Full" when I try to add more. This is just for the calendar though, since I can still send texts, take pictures, write notes, etc.

-There is a LIMITED NUMBER OF TEXT CONVERSATIONS you can have in your memory, something like 100. That is the same to say that if you create 100 or so new messages to people, you have to go through and delete old ones before you can send or receive new ones.

-This may be intentional, but might also be a software bug: more often than not, when I tap the first item on the screen of a long list (of messages, of pictures, of notes, etc.) the whole pages scrolls down to roughly the middle, so I have to slide the screen back up to the top and try again. To clarify, this would be like tapping on a link at the top of a web browser (using a touch screen) and the whole web page scrolls down instead of opening the link)

-On one of the main screens (there are three), you are supposed to be able to add shortcuts to folders (such as pictures, videos, notes, tools, etc), but instead you can only add specific files (a picture, a video, a note, etc.), which is contrary to the tutorial for the phone, and is far less useful. Also, I have gone to the AT&T store and shown that this is an issue for all of the Pantec Lasers they had available.

-QUIET PHONE SPEAKER: on max volume, I still have a hard time hearing the person on the other end compared to my old phone. If I'm at a coffee shop and a handful of other people are talking in the shop, I typically plug my other ear or use the restroom to hear the person on the other end. What I've started doing is putting them on speaker phone (which does make them audible) and walking outside.

That's all I remember at the moment, here are the pro's I can think of:
-Good receptions: It does actually DROP WAY FEWER CALLS THAN MY OLD PHONE, and I literally get more bars in more places, including a 2 story basement I was in one time.

Hope this helps,

Andy B
