Summary: Samsung E1075L is basic and convenient. Just purchase 4 Samsung E1075L for my kids to use. Does its job which is to make and receive calls. Came unlocked which was just what I wanted. Did look at the Samsung SGH-a177 Quad-band Cell Phone - Unlocked and Research In Motion BlackBerry 8700c Quad-band Smartphone - Unlocked for myself but they were both out at stock at the time. Once again, JR.com coming thru.
Summary: I love Samsung phones, I've been using them ever since my first cell phone. I have this one and so far it has been my favorite and works wonderfully. My mother wanted a prepaid phone plan instead of a contract, but still using a Samsung phone so we went to [...] and they reccommended Straight Talk. It ends up she will be saving over $500 as opposed to having a monthly contract. Prepaid plans are becoming more popular and really help in saving tons of money!
Pros: Durable, Easy Buttons and Controls, Easy To Use
Summary: If you want an easy-to-use basic phone with good battery life and small enough to just stick in your pocket, this is it. If you're looking for fancy stuff like texting, games, etc., look elsewhere. The only thing I would like that is missing is Bluetooth.
Pros: Easy Buttons and Controls, Easy To Use, Lightweight, Strong Signal
Cons: Few accessories available, Only flaw - no Bluetooth
