Best phone I've ever had

This is by far the best phone I've ever had. I have had it for over three years and I'm still using it. I have even bought newer phones twice in that time (a Motorola Pebl and an LG Neon) and gone back to this phone because its better. Never had any problems; it doesn't drop calls, turn off randomly...More
This is by far the best phone I've ever had. I have had it for over three years and I'm still using it. I have even bought newer phones twice in that time (a Motorola Pebl and an LG Neon) and gone back to this phone because its better. Never had any problems; it doesn't drop calls, turn off randomly or not recieve texts. Only two very minor complaints, the camera likes to take pictures from inside my pockets and there are only so many words you can add to the T9 memory when texting. It may not be the latest thing but this is still a very solid phone. 10/10 Less

iv'e had this phone for 3 years. It's done everything fairly well. It's very easy to hear the person on the other end. I have dropped this phone hard a number of times and it's still ticking. Very durable. The only problems iv'e had is it sometimes takes a third time to actually call some one. It takes pictures in your pocket, because the side button is sensitive. Less

Great Phone

Dude i dont care what everybody else says but this phone is frikin awesome it always works for instance 1. dropped it about fourty times 2. been through the washing machine about 5 times 3. LAST been frozzen in ice for 3 months and it still works the only problem is you cant get caller id

Not as bad as you think...

I was told, a couple months after I bought my phone, that it had been recalled for it's many problems back in winter 2004. I still have my phone today and only recently have I had any problems with it, now being the end of 2007. The folks at AT&T/Cingular told me that a phone like that is rare for t...More
I was told, a couple months after I bought my phone, that it had been recalled for it's many problems back in winter 2004. I still have my phone today and only recently have I had any problems with it, now being the end of 2007. The folks at AT&T/Cingular told me that a phone like that is rare for the abuse I've given it! And I'm on look out for another one JUST like it! GREAT picture quality, easy to type with, love the length when open, easy to hold on my shoulder when talking. I can understand the frustrations people have had with their's malfunctioning. I guess I've just been lucky cuz I LOVE my Samsung P207 and I wish they would have never stop making them! They should have just fixed the problems! Less

Horrible phone

I was surprised to read many of the same issues I encountered! 1) It deleted my entire address book! 2) It drops calls 3) I go to dial out and it will only work on the 3rd time 4) Signal sucks The only good thing about it is the sleek design. I've been a Rogers customer for 7 years and this is the w...More

I've been a Rogers customer for 7 years and this is the worst phone I ever had. I also bought a Samsung MP3 player which broke..I don't think I will be buying another Samsung product...ESPECIALLY not a cell phone...right now I am looking at the Sony Ericsson 810. Less

bad bad phone

this phone took long to call and had poor recption pices chiped off easily espicaly the intenna but it does look nice and is very durable.

long battery life

I've had it since July 2006 and it's been worming really well i may have dropped ounce or twice but nothing really bad and i'm very happy about the fact that the battery actually lasts. My last phone the Mototrola V220 that piece of crap, the phone battery lasted 1 or 2 days. The p207 lasts for about 6 days tho I don't make that many phone calls.

Pretty durable

The phone is pretty durable because i dropped it numerous times and it's still alive I mean I dropped it on concrete, wood, marble and tiled floors...

The phone is pretty durable because i dropped it numerous times and it's still alive I mean I dropped it on concrete, wood, marble and tiled floors... It still working fine except it's just scratched up from those rough falls... I like the sleek phone design and the easy to navigate menus and also the voice texting where you can use your voice to text which makes it more convenient. However the downside is that it doesn't have bluetooth capability and that I have to recharge quite often. Less

The Truth

Well.. I honestly really wanted this phone when I first saw it.. mostly because it was black.. & I've had it for about 2 months.. 7 phones come and go.. but this phone is a 7 out of 10.. it's not what expect.. thought it's WAY BETTER than the "Moto Razor" ..but they have this new phone out called the...More
