Problems with data/ speakerphone

from Amazon (5 years ago)

I never had a data plan but this phone would send data at ridiculous hours in the morning (4am, 5am) when I was fast asleep. I don't know what kind of automatic updates it has. I checked all the settings and then had to call my service provider to disable ANY kind of data exchange. Of course, this m... More


Good phone sans bells, whistles.

from Amazon (5 years ago)

I have had this phone for 2 years now. I bought it b/c it was small (I carry my phones in my pockets), it had bluetooth, has a good battery life and reviews said the call quality was good. All of those things have been as advertised and I have had no issues. I have even gotten into using it as an MP... More


On my second defective SLM

from Amazon (5 years ago)

I want to love this phone. It's sleek and user-friendly. The buttons feel nice, it has a very strong vibrate setting, and the camera is very good quality for a flip phone. The battery life is extremely long and it recharges quickly. I've had a few quibbles about it. The external screen, for exampl... More


IT's a good starter phone

(6 years ago)

This one is a good starter phone for anyone. I have had it for two years and am getting a new phone tomorrow. It is ery easy to text on and the buttons are easy to use. If you drop things a lot do not get it becuase the phone will brake eventually. It's camera is not that strong though and it goes i... More


Good phone

from Amazon (6 years ago)

I like this phone. I'm not a texter so don't use this review for anything to do w/ texting. I like all the features of the phone though. The battery lasts about a week between charges. Had for about a month or so. The only down side is I wish the backlite timer would stay on for more than 10 se... More


Not worth the money

from Amazon (6 years ago)

I have owned this type of phone for over a year now and it really has just been a hassle the entire time. THREE times, I have had to send this phone back and have a replacement one sent back to me. For some unknown reason, this phone will just loose service one day and never get it back. The guys at... More


Not a good phone.

from Phonedog (6 years ago)

Pro: Its pretty, sleek, and the rolling camera is good only when you are bored you can roll it. Con: I have many cons. the phone chips off paint and scratches easily. the camera is so confusing when you are trying to take a picture and it. takes about 15 seconds to actually take a picture and by th...

Terrible reception, poor call quality

from Amazon (6 years ago)

Business users, take note: This phone is a portable dead zone. Do not purchase this phone if reception in your primary area of use is anything less than blow-your-doors-off, full bars at all times. The SLM's antenna is exceptionally weak, and the operation system has enormous difficulty logging ont... More


Forewarned is FOREARMED!

from Amazon (6 years ago)

Samsung phone is OK. AT&T is OK - unless you expect them to honor the one year warranty. They won't. They just glibly state that the phone has water damage and the customer has no recourse whatsoever. For starters, the warranty SAYS NOTHING ABOUT WATER DAMAGE. Under the cover next to the batter...

great phone, easy to use

from Amazon (6 years ago)

I wish I had selected this one for myself. The A747 has a bigger screen than the A737 (comparing both phones my kids have), and has clear menus. The central control area lets your finger just slide easily around to all the compass points to hit your shortcuts. Good sound & picture quality, uses a s... More
