Summary: This phone was a hit with my tween daughter because of the color and size. I was taken back personally about the size. A good phone for kids, I guess. I cannot get it to send or receive picture texts although it is in our plan. I read online that apparently this is an issue that cannot be resolved.
A modest phone with a less then practical number pad

Summary: This is an ok phone - nothing particularly outstanding. It appealed to me because of 99 dollar price. I have one reservation and that is the numbers on the left side which look intriguing are actually silly to use.
Summary: si me gusta el telefono, pero tiene sus pro. por no ser del pais, no me lo han podido codificar para el internet, siendo desbloqueado. si se le coloca cuanquier chik pero el problema esta en el internet. para usarlo diario en llamadas y mensajes esta bien, toma bien las fotos y el teclado es lindo.
Summary: My son loved this phone & the fact that it was an international version did not overly inconvenience us but we live in a rural are and although with other phones we are still able to get a clear signal my son was never able to achieve better than 1 bar & most of the time he had no signal at all.
Summary: I've had this phone for a little over a month. I do like the qwerty keyboard and a few other thing but that's about all I do - texting and calling, so there are a number of things I haven't yet figured out, like how to change ring tones. I'm not terribly tech savvy so I'm sure it's my ignorance.
Summary: This phone was purchased as a gift. The person who got the phone liked it very much. Personally, I thought the phone would be a bit larger. I have tried it and it is uncomfortably small in my hands when using the qwerty keyboard. And I don't have large hands.
Summary: After TONS of research I found this is also know as the Samsung Corby Mate, and was marketed for use in in.dia. Maybe it works better over there. Just wish I knew that BEFORE I bought it!
Pros: Easy to use text. Pretty. Great for people who text alot and have thumb or finger pain.
Cons: MMS is very hard to set up. It took me days with my carrier's help to be able to receive one. Still can not send any. Tried every possible setting. Nothing. PC suite that comes with it will not even read this phone. It only shows the addition memory card I installed. If you don't have a card, you...
Excerpt: When you go to the "download software" section of this phone, NOTHING comes up for this phone. Maybe it's because it's a relatively new phone, but nothing at all on the phone's own, native software download page? Downloading "Contacts" from Outlook should be a standard application.
