User Reviews


It's overall a great phone

Great for texting, not great for multi media, but if you are using it for only talking and texting it's an awesome phone for you; full qwerty keyboard and few dropped calls

I like this phone because it has a great QWERTY keyboard,that is great for texting (even though we've seen it before).

It is overall a great phone, not always the best, and the music player annoys me but it is great for texting and i have had only 1 dropped call

Total waste of money.

Samsung has the worst customer service I have ever come across. I mistakenly purchased a Samsung mobile phone and have regretted it since day 1. I cant wait till my contract is over.

Samsung has the worst customer service I have ever come across. I mistakenly purchased a Samsung mobile phone and have regretted it since day 1. I cant wait till my contract is over. It seems like the folks at Samsung have it back word's, most of the important features are hidden, at least 3 clicks away. The keyboard is user unfriendly, the signal strength disappears with the least bit of interfearence. I could go on and on. Go to another brand, Samsung has to learn to pull up their socks. Less

Get's The Job Done

Great phone; satisfies my needs. Easy transfer between phone and computer. Good quality photos. Sturdy phone; can resist damage. Overall, a great cell phone for the moderate user.
