The A3 is a terrible phone to have , it doesn't allow other apps to work

  • BBQ Chicken Pizza

I used this phone for 4 years and now it sits on a clock FM radio microUSB clock in my room as a speaker for the phone. Acts as a second clock along with my old AM FM radio clock on the nightstand and the wall clock. I now use a Galaxy Nacho.
