...but the touchscreen!!!

Can be, but I hate the screen. This is my 3rd phone with touchscreen, I´m disappointed with this one. Why this Samsung. Pls keep it only with big warning Don´t buy me!!!

I HATE THIS PHONE AND I WOULD RATE IT 0

This is the worse phone ever! I can't believe they sell it. I can't even have a conversation using this phone because it hangs up by itself!

This is the worse phone ever! I can't believe they sell it. I can't even have a conversation using this phone because it hangs up by itself! I don't even want to answer it when it rings because as soon as I say hello it disconnects! I had it sent away for repairs but of course they couldn't find anything wrong with it. I have the ringer shut off, but it rings anyway!!! I can't wait to trade it in for a better one!!! Less

I also hate this phone. It hangs up on me, tries to access the internet when I don't want it to, makes calls even though it's locked, and I can't see the screen outside unless it's cloudy. Surely there must be something better on the market! If can't trade it in, I'll happily take a sledge hammer to it.

Not At All Impressed

The price is right and I like the side-slide QWERTY keyboard. But the touchscreen is not great, the interface is not particularly customizable, and the TouchWiz feature is not useful. In fact, I find it a little bit irritating and you can't disable it from what I can understand. Also, my phone comple...More
The price is right and I like the side-slide QWERTY keyboard. But the touchscreen is not great, the interface is not particularly customizable, and the TouchWiz feature is not useful. In fact, I find it a little bit irritating and you can't disable it from what I can understand. Also, my phone completely shuts down, as a previous user mentions, while I'm in the middle of composing text messages. Not every day, but often enough to make me think I wasted money on this phone.

myy phone does the same thing i dont understand

my cell phone shuts off for no reason to, i thought yes its cheap n it even has a touchscreen but it shuts off this has happend atleast once a day,

Good phone. I bought it for my daughter, who wanted to have a qwerty phone. We like the features offered by the phone. The only point I don't like about the phone is the date format. Since this is an international phone, the US date format is not available.

Do not buy

This phone shuts itself off for no reason. I will be in the middle of texting and it just powers off. It will also freeze up in the middle of use. I have seen other reviews and they all say the same thing. I like the touch screen & keyboard, but pick something else.

I purchased the phone for my granddaughter because she insisted on a pink, touch screen phone with a radio. This phone has a radio and a MP3 player. So she got more than she bargained for. The problem: This is an international phone and we could not get all the standard functions to work on the phone. The vendor offered to exchange the phone for one that could be properly set up but my granddaughter refused. She was willing to sacrifice SMS picture mail for a phone in the color of her choice. Go figure! Less

hi my name is kerry and i was looking into geting this phone and was wondering if you could give me some detals on it you could email me @ kiwi711rocks@hotmail.com.thanx
