Great phone for a beginning texter that doesn't need a lot of talk minutes.
7 November 2014
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.
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: 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.
Summary: This is a great phone. It put the mic's where they are needed to hear and be heard clearly. VERY rugged and the keyboard for texting is quick and easy to use. Camera is OK. Can't say enough good things about it!
Summary: I had one of these until upgrading to a new touch screen phone. I was sorry I upgraded, and ordered this refurbished model of my old phone. I love it... no more butt calls, mis-touched screens, and other errant functions like on the new phone. This one even came with the extended life battery. I'm really happy with it even though it's not cutting edge technology.
Summary: I wanted a messaging phone with just a little flash and the Alias 2 delivered. Every single key is actually an e-ink display so when the phone is flipped open clamshell-style they're ordered and labelled for use primarily as a phone but when you flip it open sideways they're oriented properly and filled primarily with letters and other keys for messaging. Other reviews are right when they say it'll take you a little bit of time to get used to the phone.
