Best thing I've ever spent $600 on

I've had this phone since it came out...and that was about 6 years ago at least. I've had NO problems with it what so ever. I have NO complaints at all. I get so many compliments on it still, and can't seem to find anything that comes close to it. Definitely dreading the day it finally goes on me, but...More

I get so many compliments on it still, and can't seem to find anything that comes close to it. Definitely dreading the day it finally goes on me, but it's been a good lot of years we've had together! lol. Best investment yet. Less

Love it!

I absolutely love mine. It is better than any of my friends who have newer models and I get a lot of attention because of it.

I love how unique looking it is, how feminnine it is and the features are fun to play with too! If there is a better phone out there please let me know. It seems to me that all the other ones are the same as the other ones!!! I guess I had also add however that I wish the scheduler was easier to input info into. That's why I give a 9 for performance.

I bought this phone in June 2003 and it in now currently being repaired. I paid 599.99 plus tax for it which was too expensive and now it is being fixed. My LCD screen has some sort of smudge on it. One person said it was a PIN HOLE and others say its a "smudge". I never dropped it, it doesn't even have a scratch. My warranty is over June 11, 2004 and I still might have to pay for it. I refused to pay $25 to get it fixed and now I might not even have my phone anymore. The gentlemen said IF it is covered under warranty it will be fixed. If it ISN'T covered under warranty he said it is not even worth fixing. Over all the phone is great but the warrnty standards SUCKS! There goes $650 down the drain. It wasn't worth the money. There are other sansung phones out there that are good and CHEAPER! Less
