Summary: This phone is simple to use and has some really good features the only problems I have with it is that the battery life is only good if you are not using the phone. The other problem I have is that the phone is really slow, it takes forever to open text messages and when receiving a call it rings about 3 times before it actually shows you an incoming call and gives you the option to answer.
Summary: I bought the phone as a WIFI/Google Voice device, but the Samsung has issues with VOIP that keeps it from working the way I intended. Additionally, the default apps make it sluggish. Those issues aside, it has been a good phone that can run 2.2 android. I have found that if give it a little time, the android touchscreen is better than the keyboard for data entry.
Good Product - A touch slower than new ones. But the Android we all love.

Summary: This is the first Android that US Cellular released. It's a really slick phone, and similar in most functions to the Mesmerize (the phone I have). I am glad we were able to pick this phone up on eBay as my wife didn't have a smart phone to go along with our plan. I will say there are times when it seems to take awhile to respond to a requested action or when it doesn't seem to hold a charge very well, but otherwise - it is the reliable Android that most of us have come...
Summary: I bought myself a Samsung Mesmerize and loved it so much that I wanted to switch my wife over to an android phone. So I got her an acclaim. She didn't really want a full touch screen phone, thats why I opted to get that one. Right now, she hates it, but I think she is getting used to it. She had a BB Tour. Now, I love Blackberry, but I was lil tired of the same ol thing all the time with Blackberry. Never changing up the overall look, it became boring.
Excerpt: I got this phone back in August and I LOVED it for the first month. Then it started to have a mind of it's own. The first thing I noticed was the green camera screen. I turned the phone off and on and it was normal again. Then... When I would get phone calls the screen would stay black and I was unable to answer my calls! Recently it just decided mid-text message to shut itself down. About 2 weeks ago my screen stopped working all together.
Excerpt: I am on my 3rd Acclaim. The last two did the same thing. End up freezing while turning on just randomly. There are some flaws to this phone. Be aware. It does slow down randomly some times. It can freeze when getting calls. And with the last two they had the same issue of shutting off by themselves and not being able to turn back on without a battery pull. This site shows the battery life in stand by mode. It is a lie. It is no way 450 hours in stand by time.
Pros: Android OS, multitouch, not to expensive, 3G/wifi all that jazz
Excerpt: i've Had The Phone for a while and i must say, the only problem is the fact it takes a REDICULOUS amount of time to charge. i plug it in the night before at 5% and at the time of writing it is at 86 %.
Pros: Great Features, Tons of Apps, Support for MP4, USB Support, IM Support in Messaging
