This is amazing phone

This phone has a lot of features. A complete world in your hand .+++ you can add 2gb card.photo movie song ,...whatever you need ..its there.I love this phone This is the 4th year I m still using it.

Good First phone

i am only in early high school and really wanted a phone and would take anything and this was a good start....i think. though after half a year of use i am hoping to change because there isnt everything i was looking for. Its still in good shape after a few years of being my moms and mine so its a good phone.....

Not the best phone I've ever gotten

Overall, the phone is simple and I haven't had any problems with it. But the options are limited and it is difficult to personalise the phone to one's liking. If you are among those who like to set you own personalised ringtones (i.e. using mp3 files etc.) I recommend you avoid this phone. Its impossible to work with.

Didn't last long

Just after a year and a half, some of my keys have cracked off and today, about 23 months of using this phone, no one can hear me speak into the phone therefore cannot talk or record videos.
Pretty good phone. I've had it for a year and have had no problems. Good for people who just want a phone to text, call and listen to music. The only bad part about this phone is transfering music and audio to the phone which can get really annoying. Also very frustrating is the fact that Rogers do...More
Pretty good phone. I've had it for a year and have had no problems. Good for people who just want a phone to text, call and listen to music. The only bad part about this phone is transfering music and audio to the phone which can get really annoying. Also very frustrating is the fact that Rogers doesn't allow you to use your own custom ringtones which really sucks as none of the tones included are any good. To the person who said there is no speaker phone, when talking, press the center button to enable speaker phone. Overall, I am happy with this phone but it can get boring. Less

The phone has the looks..very sleek and smart looking. It's alright phone...just a few things I missed compared to my old Motorola phone... Speaker phone = it does not deliver sharp performance. I can't seem to find the right setting...if I set it to the loudest the voice cracks....with low it is hard to hear...and if I walk around I can't be heard. And no missed call alert. I don't get it. Samsung put in a lot of ring tones hear and there but not missed Call Alert. Less

Had it sent for repair took them 3 months they said it was water dammage and not repairable even with the expensive warranty I purcha...More
Had phone for about 7 months. Worked ok for the first 6 months. I hardly even used the phone bought it for emergency use only. It would not turn on or off properly. Had it sent for repair took them 3 months they said it was water dammage and not repairable even with the expensive warranty I purchased. I never got it wet so the only thing that could have got it wet was sweat. I don't sweat alot so other than the humidity in the air is the only thing I can think of. I was always kept in a case as well. I will not buy another Samsung product because of this. Now the company wants me to pay $250.00 for it and buy another phone. Less
