Hopeless junk

I have had the phone for 1 year and 3 months. It has been in for repair , then replaced and now the new one is doing the same thing. It freezes the keys and is constantly searching for service in my area. I am going back to Nokia........

I do not like this phone at all

You need your book to change any control, it is very complicated, and confusing, I am not impressed Ringer is not loud enough

Cheap, durable

I've had my Samsung u430 for two years and I've been very impressed with it. Pros: - cheap - very durable - good battery life - blue tooth Cons: - camera isn't great - small screen - occasionally needs restarting I really like this phone. It's exactly what it is meant to be: a cheap phone that lets you talk and text without tons of bells and whistles. As well, the phone is pretty durable. I've dropped it a couple of times, and also carried it through a river (accidentally), and it survived. (I manged to get it working again by putting it under a hand dryer until it was so hot I could barely hold it). Anyone planning on buying this should note that restarting the phone about once a day is a good idea, otherwise it will start to do some weird stuff in a few days. Generally if I have any problems with it, I just pull the battery, and it works fine upon rebooting. Less
