Does anyone have experience with this at all or this specific phone? I would really appreciate some input.

Android version 2.3.x == do not buy. You want Android version 4.0 or higher.

Developer support for 2.3 is rapidly declining, so that's a concern for future app availability. For example, Google Chrome for Android isn't available for 2.3. The Google Play Store (Android's app store) won't even show Chrome in 2.3, much less allow you to download and install it.

Do yourself a favor and find something that runs 4.0 or higher out of the box. You'll be glad you did, especially a year or so down the road.

What do you want to use it for? Its a below average device as compared with other manufacturers that have phones in this bracket but attractively priced. Generally speaking, I would stay away and if you can afford another $20 for the next phone up, go for it.
The general rule of thumb, is that if a phone is cheap, you can expect to get what you pay for. Poor battery life being the #1 issue.

I agree a newer OS (Android 4.0) is wiser in regards to app support/stability, but if you are even looking at this device, I am guessing this whole OS talk is totally foreign to you.
