It's ok.

Pros: Nice design, easy to use. Speaker and ringtones is loud and clear and it has voice command. Cons: Side buttons are kind of useless. When I put the phone in my pocket, it takes a picture or the voice command goes on. The annoying beeping sound when I close or open my phone.

Let me count the ways I hate this phone.

The ringtone volume is too soft; the vibrate too subtle. In an noisy location, you will never hear this phone ring. I am not fussy about ringtones and have never downloaded or bought one. But this phone made me understand why people buy tones. All the choices are awful. The side buttons are worthless...More
The ringtone volume is too soft; the vibrate too subtle. In an noisy location, you will never hear this phone ring. I am not fussy about ringtones and have never downloaded or bought one. But this phone made me understand why people buy tones. All the choices are awful. The side buttons are worthless except to create problems, making calls you don't want, and getting the "PTT charges will apply" message constantly. You can't turn on the speakerphone until the call is initiated and it requires pressing first the right side button and then a key on the front left. If I had so many hands to spare, I could hold the phone and wouldn't need speaker, would I? You can only adjust the font on outgoing dialing. It would be nice to be able to enlarge incoming numbers, so that I could see who's calling. If you hit the center button, it connects you to the internet; disconnecting takes time. You cannot reset it to do something you might prefer. In general, the navigation keys are different from most other phones, and therefore counter-intuitive. The phone is supposed to have voice-activated dialing, but it constantly has to be reprogrammed to make that feature work. Less

this is my first camera phone and this is what i have to say about it: Pros: loug speakerphone, easy to text and get on aim, loud ringtones, easy to use buttons Cons: where should i begin? umm lets see the buttons on the side are easily pressed when you either you pocket or purse. out of nowhere the phone will call somebody and i have to constantly say "sorry i didn't mean to call you" people get irritated with it and so do i. and if i have to hear "Say a command!" i will go crazy!!!! the ptt is a waste cuz nobody has it and you have to subscribe to it. after you take a number of pictures the zoom doesn't work. how dumb is that? constantly there are email updates coming up that i don't care about. the ringtones suck and so do the message tones. on my other phone you can record something and set it as your ringtone but no, not on this out of date phone. i don't even think that cingular or at&t sale this old phone anyway! i hope to get a sidekick for my birthday... :] Less

Pro: Good design; easy to use; photo options; size; PTT Con: can't use caller ID pictures unless the phone number is in the PHONE as opposed to sim card` I actually got this phone only because the store didn't have the LG that I wanted in stock. Because of Cingular's 30-day guaruntee, the representative at the store suggested that I take a phone home and go back in a week or so to get the phone that I wanted. I think I'm keeping it! There are lots of handy options- the camera part has options like black and white, sepia, sketch-look, zoom, etc. The phone is fairly small...slightly larger than my old samsung but it works! It is very easy to use and go through the menus and has nice options for customizing it to your needs. The phone also has the Push-to-Talk option, IF you subscribe! I probably wouldn't subscribe for now, since not many people that I know have it, but we subscribed for a few months to save on the phones. So far, the only problem I've found is that when I try to associate a picture with someone in my address book, I can't unless the number is in the PHONE rather than the sim card. I copied to the phone as well to make it work, but then I have the same entry twice. Overall, a really fun and effective phone! Less

Pro: bluetooth, loud speakerphone, nice look Con: so many .. see below I think this is the worst Samsung phone. My last phone was a Samsung so I decided to be a faithful customer..but never again....The cons to this phone are....low volume when talking to someone (can barely hear anyone, but the speakerphone is very loud), the 4 side buttons lock but are not effective as the push to talk with Cingular and speakerphone automatically dial people without me knowing and is very embarassing (had to get a case to put it in and it still doesn't help much), camera has no flash so it gives poor images, and last but not least - the stupid phone goes on and off by itself and keeps making a beeping noise....never again will I buy a phone the first week it is on the market...

pictures of my pocket

Last night I cleared out 34 pictures of my pocket from "my photos". You can't keep this camera in your pocket. It will keep coming on, taking pictures, and even trying to dial strange numbers. The salesmen say it won't do this if the camera is closed, but it does. My old Nokia phone was "much" better,...More

nice phone with a couple of glitches

Well, I like the phone but the Pust To Talk buttons easily initiate the PTT feature if you have the phone in your pocket and reach for it from there. Same goes for the camera button. Other than that, very good phone.

I've had this phone for approximately three months now, so here's a review. Design: This phone feel small, both in the pocket and in the hand. Compared to other phones with better cameras, it is noticeable smaller. The antennae is a slight negative as it would have been better if it was integrated, however I have never really noticed it getting caught or anything. The flip is OK, its not incredible strong but it gets the job done and stays open. One of my major concerns when buying my phone was the keypad: I needed a very good number pad. This phones is superb. The buttons are large and easy to push. Some people have complained about the camera button on the side, however in the three months I've had it I've only accidentally taken three pictures in my pocket. Overall very good design, with few minor concerns. Performance: The phone has worked everywhere I've gone, including in remote locations on the east side of Lake Huron. In the city the reception has been at 5 bars most of the time. The only minor complain is the speaker has to be positioned properly when held to your ear: if it is too low, you lose almost all sound. Now it needs to be quite a bit below for that to happen, but it does. Battery life is very good, I've left it on all night and day for three days and it still going (although it died soon after). Features: The camera is a phone camera. It takes pictures fine just to catch the moment but the pictures aren't good quality. I can't compare to other camera phones, but the quality seems to be a bit above average for a 0.3MP camera phone. T9 works well, contacts are easy to use, speakerphone is okay, could be a bit louder. Haven't used the Internet. RINGTONES! This phone comes with two ring tones that actually sound like a phone, not all the random music that most people have. Very nice to have. Overall I am very happy with this phone, and would recommend it to someone who's looking for a good mid range phone. It only cost me $50, and with all the features it has I felt it was a pretty good deal (don't forget its quad-band!). Less
