LOVE the Samsung Alias 2
7 January 2015
Summary: I bought this phone when it first came out. I still have it and I'm still on the original battery. I bought a second phone to use when this one quits. The worst thing Samsung ever did was to quit making this sort of phone. It is a flip phone but, it pivots in the corner so that texting is easier with a QWERTY keyboard. I have no love of "smart phones". I have no desire to surf the Internet on my phone. My phone is a phone and it texts.
Great phone for a beginning texter that doesn't need a lot of talk minutes.

Summary: I love this little phone. My dog chewed up my old one so I decided to order another one. I am an "oldie" and a have not graduated to the new smart phones yet. I just recently switched my phone plan to include texting as my old plan cost me money everytime I sent a text. This little phone makes it easy to do. I also did not want a big phone as I was just looking for a phone that I could slip in my back pocket with my wallet and go for a motorcycle ride.
Summary: For those who care more about basic service and what matters most in a cell phone (loud ring tones, clear time display, sturdiness [this can take a beating and a million accidental drops onto the floor], consistently good reception, and fun two clamshell ways of opening the phone (you flip it vertically to make a phone call or horizontally to text), there's nothing that beats this phone hands-down. In fact, this is the phone that even makes me hate smartphones.
Excerpt: I walked into the Verizon store and was surrounded by phone of different shapes, sizes, and capabilities. As I browsed around the store, phones caught my eye every now and then but nothing really had a pull on me.
Excerpt: I purchased the Samsung Alias 2 about a year ago– I ended up with this phone mostly because I liked the innovative e-ink keypad that allows you to use the keyboard in both ways–both in the traditional sense and in keyboard form.
Man Downgrades from Smartphone to Samsung Alias 2 and Lives to Tell About It.

Summary: A perfect phone for text messaging and actually talking on the phone. (I know! Amazing, right?). Seems sufficiently sturdy. I purchased this phone as a replacement for my smartphone and was able to save a considerable amount ($60) on my cellphone bill (Verizon) by downgrading and dropping my data plan. All of the fun apps that I had on the smartphone I transferred to my WiFi only tablet.
Summary: I placed my order on a Tuesday and rec'd my confirmation from Amazon and to expect the phone the following week on a Thursday. Two days after placing my order the phone arrived in my mail box. I was pleasently surprised and excited about that. I was also very excited to have found this phone, that my phone service, Verizon doesn't offer any more. This company not only had the phone I was looking for, but a "BRAND NEW ONE". Yea!

Summary: I bought this phone for my son, who happens to be the only 10 year old left on the face of this planet without a smart phone! As the worst mother in the world, I took it upon myself to find a level of compromise that he would be content with. If you can't buy the cell phone you love, love the one you're with.
Summary: The Samsung Alias 2 U750 Verizon Wireless is great for those in need of a rugged “smart phone”. I buy them for my employees who work in places where a fragile phone is easily damaged. One of the best features is the phone’s side flip feature for quick texting. I suggest buying protectors for both outer and inner phone faces also available at Amazon.
Summary: I love cell phones that are just phones - smart phones are just not for me. ...This is the best cell phone I've owned, so when my original dropped and broke after 5 years of hard use, I looked to find a used one on Amazon. I found this. It was promised and delivered as NIB. I would deal with this company again in a minute. If you just want a cell phone that is a cell phone, I highly recommend the Samsung Alias 2 U750 purchased from this organization.
