This phone cannot be used with a wireless headset

I was told on the phone, by Amazon customer support, that this phone had Bluetooth capability. The Amazon website even shows you bluetooth headsets as "available accessories". However, this phone doe not support either bluetooth or wireless headsets. I guess that is why it is so cheap. I had to return the phone. Inside the packaging, Samsung had a picture of a "corded" headset you could purchase for this phone. Less

Terrific Basic Phone

We were looking for an attractive, pre-paid cell phone and this fit the bill. It's easy to use, has good battery life, and includes a serviceable camera. The phone is comfortable to use (something that couldn't be said for the Motorola flip phones), snaps closed with a solid feel, and the menus are straightforward. Call quality with AT&T is very good. There are two things that could be improved: there should be a way to get photos off the phone without having to send a video text message, and it would be nice to be able to import phone numbers from a PC. For the price though it's no big deal. Other than those quibbles we're very happy with the phone. Less

Great Simple Phone

If you are looking for something simple that has great call quality this is the phone. I researched low SAR (absorbed radiation) and this was the cheapest most simple phone available. My other phone was ancient, so this feels like a huge step up. Love the speakerphone, internal antenna. The camera doesn't take super clear pictures, but my other phone didn't have a camera at all - so still a step up. Overall pleased with how it functions and quality of calls. Less

complicated to use

from Amazon
Phone was too small to see what some of buttons meant..and as a result, I made mistakes. Complicated to use. If away from it too long, forgot how to do some things. Manual was confusing in places.

Pro: As a replacement phone you can not go wrong. I have one as a back up and it never failed me in a pinch. Con: Ok now for the Bad it can play games but now very many. but as far as using it as just a phone well i've said it once and i will say it again you cann't go wrong. Using experience: 5 days Simply put it is what it is a cell phone Samsung has done good work on this little guy. I have used this phone for 5 day's. and it never failed to keep me in touch. So my vote is buy one and keep it somewhere safe because you never know when your phone will go bad or break. Less
