CNET Editors' Rating

3.5 stars Very good

Updated on:

The Good The Verizon Wireless PN-300 (Pantech PN-300) is a compact and basic phone with a user-friendly menu interface, tactile buttons, and excellent call quality. It comes with an external display, plus standard features such as text messaging and a speakerphone.

The Bad Personalization options are limited with the PN-300, as it does not come with a Web browser. The PN-300 also has a boring design.

The Bottom Line While the Verizon Wireless PN-300 won't wow anyone with its design or feature set, we really liked its simplicity and ease of use. The great sound quality makes this a good phone for those who just want a phone to make calls.

While television and newspaper ads may imply otherwise, there is still a market out there for basic, no-frills cell phones. A lot of consumers still want a simple phone that gets the most important job done: making calls. Verizon Wireless has a few such phones, the PN-210 that we reviewed a few months ago, and now the Verizon Wireless PN-300, both manufactured by Pantech. The PN-300 doesn't have a camera or a music player; nor does it have a Web browser or e-mail. However, it is also very inexpensive at only $29.99 with a two-year contract with Verizon.


The Verizon Wireless PN-300 has a pretty boring design.
