I have owned this phone with the T-Mobile prepaid for seven months. It gets a good signal and has good sound quality. The phone book and games are great! Sadly, the battery dosen't last very long... It has T9 text entry, bluetooth and 15mb of internal memory. I could store over 100 pictures and still have half the internal memory left. It dosen't look like a prepaid phone when you carry it around unlike Tracfone's Motorola c139. The buttons have a nice feel and it is very small. I can't tell if I have it in my pocket or not. A great phone for the price! Less

Best phone I've ever owned... simple and reliable, best reception too! Oops... Ran my first Stripe through the washer and dryer, it did not survive. But, no question that I wanted to replace it with the same. Phone, camera, bluetooth!

A phone should have ONE function

I'm sick of phones having cameras, mp3 players, etc. I need to be able to hear a person on the other end and have them hear me. THIS phone has major problems, and only after going crazy for 5 months am I finding out it's this model that's the problem, not my service carrier or anything other issue. The service carrier was of no help solving the problem of constantly losing calls without them actually being dropped. So, I purchased a different phone with good reviews for it's call clarity and lack of bells and whistles...and don't you know, I can actually conduct business via phone now. This phone doesn't have an mp3 player, but does have a camera. The camera takes terrible, grainy photos. So if that's important to you, pass on this phone as well. The positive, is that this is the first phone that I've had that I could hear the "ringer." Unlike the other woman's opinion of it's low ringer; on the top volume, it's quite loud when indoors. Less

I was a little hesitant about this phone after reading some prior reviews, but I have been more than pleased with its performance so far. I have no problems with volume, either hearing someone (regular or using speaker), and the ringer volume is fine as well. Menus are pretty intuitive and especially like the white on black text face (although there are other more colorful options) The phone is lightweight and small, easily fitting into your palm. Flips nicely and not too easily, so you don't flip it open by accident. Yes, the back panel is lightweight plastic, but hopefully you won't be in and out of there changing the battery out too often! I haven't tried taking photos yet; but hey, it's my phone, not my camera :) Just bought a Bluetooth headset and I will be trying that and will update my review when I've used it for a while. The only drawbacks so far are: 1) Hate the cheesy cover for the headset/charger port. I really have to slow down and make sure I'm delicate when utilizing the port for fear of tearing it off of the phone. 2) Can't use the wired headset while charging - as there is only one port for both functions. Overall, I gave this phone 4 stars because it's functional, nice size and feel, and usable easily right out of the box for me. I wanted first and foremost a phone with clear signal and that's what I've got. Less

Ring Tone

I bought this product for my son and the ringer is so low that he never hears it ring. It is a sleek phone, but what good is it if he never hears it!

The Samsung Stripe looks good and has really user friendly controls. Keys are large and raised, so texting isn't a issue. The VGA camera isn't that great but acceptable. Bluetooth paired up easily with my Plantronics 665. External screen is nice, no picture caller ID but I did like the display. The internal screen isn't anything to write home about. Has the usual features like IM's, SMS, MMS, speaker phone, alarm, etc. Call quality is a bit shaky and the volume level was a bit low. I have AT&T service and found my signal strength not the greatest. I got about 4 hours of talk time before I had to recharge it. Standby time was good though. This is a tri-band phone so reselling it or using it overseas might be an issue. Unlocking it is easily done if you plan to travel with another carrier. But remember, it operates on 850/1800/1900 only, no 900. If you're looking for a low to mid range camera phone, you can do better. Look at the Nokia 6103 for a better phone at a cheaper price. Less

Pro: Very stylish design! Very compact! Con: Not many features. I love this phone! I have the black version. It wasn't too expensive. Its a very beautiful phone. I am also a big Samsung fan and i was impressed with its over all quality. The only cons I found were: Lack of features, and the ringer/alarm could be a lil louder, even when it's all the way at 5 it doesn't seem very loud. On the plus side it has an EXCELLENT camera, and decent battery life. It's also "Fav 5" compatible. It's not the greatest phone but, one of the greater compact phones around in my opinion!! Less
