Beware even though this is advertised as Sapphire Blue it ...

Bandit, Amazon
19 July 2014
  • Summary: Beware even though this is advertised as Sapphire Blue it is not. I ordered two they both were black. Sent them back and ordered the blue ones again, received black phones again. If you want a blue phone do not order these.

Does not work as hoped

Steven Kirschner, Amazon
22 June 2014
  • Summary: The battery life in this phone just does not last at all. Sometimes not even for a few hours. There is a general defect in the manufacturing of this product that Samsung does not seem to want to address. This is the second phone that I have bought of this model and both have the same problems. It really is too bad because if it worked as advertised it would be a great phone. This is a really good phone, it just does not work.

The texting works and the phone recieves calls but you can't verbally communicate using this phone.

  • Summary: The texting works but talking to someone does not. I can hear people but they cannot hear me making it difficult to use this phone when calling people that do not have texting on their phone such as my Grandparents..

Bad phone!

morgan10260, Phone Arena
30 August 2012
  • Excerpt: One of the worst phones I have ever owned. Quality is poor. Options are poor. You cannot have a pic as the background. It's the menu and you can't change it and the menu will take you to another menu!
