The Blackjack2 is horirble
9 September 2012
Excerpt: I was so excited to get this phone becuase it looked so great. After about a month the middle button, the one you need to select everything with, began to become hard to press. A little bit after that it quit working at all. Unfortunately i did not purchase insurance on my phone so my provider refused to replace it. I have been stuck with it for a while now and here lately it won't charge unless it is turned off and then I have trouble getting it to turn on.
Excerpt: I've had this phone for literally only two weeks and in that two weeks, the phone broke. The problem started out with lagging of the keyboard but I told myself I could deal with that. In not even a week, the left and down buttons on the navigational pad had already broken. Two days later, my screen was filled with weird blotches all over the place. my phone didn't even have any water damage and it was acting this way. I do not recommend you to get this phone.
Samsung Blackjack II in brand new condition is not what it promi

Excerpt: I purchased samsung blackjack II about two years ago with a two year contract which will run out this upcoming january of 2010. After I had the phone for two month it went dead, I was not pleased nor amused. I had to send it of and in return I received a refurbished phone. They told me that they needed to work out some "kinks" and that this refurbished phone will be a lot better than what the brand new one was. I was skeptic and not happy, because I wanted a...
Summary: This phone was good for a while when I first got it. But after a couple months it began lagging a little ... also it doesnt show when I have new text messages. As soon as i dropped it, the back broke. I bought this phone in replacement of my iPhone & i am aware that it was a BIG CHANGE , but it still couldve worked better. On top of THAT , the part where the charger goes in , is broken. EVERY PERSON I KNOW who has this phone has this problem.
Summary: I bought this phone in October because I did not want to extend my AT&T contract with an upgrade. It is stylish looking and worked very well until three months later when it just quit. No warranty so I'm out of luck. Would not purchase this phone again.
Summary: The phone is working good the only this is when I got it the back did not fit properly on the phone. I managed to squeeze it in but two days later, a hook at the bottom of the back broke off due to it not being able to fit in the first place.
Summary: Had this phone for about 2 years. Started recharging it with a USB cable recently with an offical 'SAMSUNG' AC Adaptor. Here is what happens: Starting condition: Phone is POWERED OFF. Battery is low to depleted. Plug in USB connection. Phone starts charging. A miniute or so passes. Phone powers on. Announces that the battery is critically low. *****DISABLES THE RECHARGE*****. and then POWERS OFF. Phone now powered off, plugged into the outlet via USB. But not recharging.
Summary: I couldn't turn on the phone even for the first time using. I thought that it's because the battery was empty. Then I waited until it's been fully charged, but the phone still could not be turned on. I returned it right away. It looked good, but it was too bad for a new cell phone!
Summary: I have tried several phones and this one, although not exactly what i want, I decided to keep it. My main issue with this phone is that it doesn't get good reception in my house. This is an ongoing issue for me even though I have a small one family wood frame house, and get a good signal as soon as I step out the door. I guess I will have to live with this for now. Another problem is the keyboard.
