Great value for the money

Summary: Overall a great value if you want a full keyboard and touch screen settings without having to have a data package...this will be a great phone for you. Keys are a little touchy and camera is just o.k. If your thinking that this phone will be a good low cost replacement for a smart phone...you will be disappointed.

Summary: My first Brightside was doing fine until both the back and end button stopped working. I was given a free phone which worked for 10 months and the same thing happened. Hoping it lasted a few days until I could go to the Verizon store, it started glitching every time I typed and then finally was completely static-y and unusable. If you are looking for a phone to hold up, this is not that phone. It only continues to work if hardly touched.
Summary: I am very pleased with this phone. I would highly recommend it to any one who is looking for a phone thats easy to operate! The battery life is good and its well worth the money I spent on it.
Summary: It's a great (mostly) touch phone that does not require a data plan. Last I heard Verizon had discontinued it, not sure why since it was one of the best selling non-data phones out there. After mine went to the bottom of Little Silver Lake on summer vacation last year, I knew I wanted to get another just like it so hit ebay and am very satisfied.
Summary: I've had a brightside for a year and I LOVE the phone, got used to touch screen and all the other features, Dropped it a million and one times and not a scratch! then the touch screen crapped out on me. I know others who have the phone and have had no problems so I'm thinking it's just a one time thing. I would definitely get another one to replace it but shopping around and looking at the prices I can't afford it and I'm not due for an upgrade til Oct.
Summary: This phone deserves five stars for a basic phone. It's hard to find a good feature phone these days when handsets are often replaced by smart phones. This and the Samsung Alias 2 (also known as the SCH-u750) are two of the best basic phone's Verizon has to offer.
Summary: My wife does not want a smart phone because she does not need that level of functionality, and does not want to pay for more than she needs. She simply needs a phone that works everywhere, even inside our house, and can send texts easily. Her prior phone was an LG model that frequently lost calls inside our house. She loves the Samsung brightside as it does not lose calls even inside our house, and it has a larger more vivid screen than her prior phone.
Summary: This was a replacement for my wife at an affordable price. The qwerty keyboard is much to her liking due to the easy use as compared to touch screens. The battery has a very good use time between charges and charging is fast. I got this "unlocked" without extra cost and the carrier connected and restored from the damaged unit without any charges (as a service courtesy.
