Summary: This item is manufactured in Singapore...It was not intended to be sold in the US..It doesn't come with English instructions. When I contacted Samsung USA, they told me they do not support it...but managed to supply a link for Samsung Singapore to obtain an instruction manual for model GT-C3520 which is close enough, with some small differences.
Summary: Good: basic functions easy to use, good battery life Bad: missing expected functions: exterior volume control, speakerphone only works when call is connected, Kies is pretty awful software. Dealer, 24hrsDeals.com, offers NO warranty, unlike other 3rd party merchants hosted by Amazon (for same price).

Summary: I paired this phone with my sync system in my Ford fusion. It hooked up imediately and worked. However, every time I start my car the samsung phone sounds an alert and asks if it should connect with sync. So, I have to get my phone out of my pocket and press yes or the phone will not connect. My old Motorola woud connect automatically when the car was started. I should not have to ok connection every time I start my car.
Summary: The phone arrived on time and in excellent condition. It's an absolutely great phone. The downside is, the two I received are optimized for European customers. The chargers are the large circular prong chargers used in Europe and although they were shipped with adapters as well, it isn't as convenient as I had hoped. You also can only set the date as DD/MM/YYYY or YYYY/MM/DD. There is no option for MM/DD/YYYY for US customers where this format is standard.
Summary: I was in the market for a flip phone and purchased it based on the reviews. This cell was a bit of a disappointment as I switched from a smartphone to this. DOWNERS: speakerphone clarity/loudness was poor and especially so if there is some noise at either end: 2) texting is slow and tedious and takes practice i.e., if you press too many times you'll pass the letter and have to start again.
Summary: brilliant little phone 4 my needs......but as previous reviews have said i dont think it is fully unlocked as i am unable 2 send/receive picture messages........other than that i am very pleased...
