Summary: I cannot tell you whether this phone works. It just arrived, and I won't be going to Europe for a while. But I can tell you this: PROS: It came already set for English menus and included English printed docs. (Perhaps the complaints of previous posters motivated the change.) It is small, light, and the charger worked fine...the battery was 80% charged out of the box.
Summary: I used this phone while travelling around europe for three months. the phone works just fine, and is perfect as long as you are not looking for anything advanced. This is definetly a basic phone with very basic features. If you are looking for a cheap option, short-term phone while traveling which you can use for texting and phone calls then this phone will work just fine.
Summary: I got this phone for my Dad to use in Sri Lanka, and he was very happy with it, it has no fancy controls and option so easy to use, his main use of this phone is to make a call, no text/mail or Web. and it has good battery life also. For a user which need only Voice calls, and need good talk time, this one of the best options, remember this will not work in US since the GSM bands are only calibrated to work with UK & Asia bands.
Excerpt: They work perfectly well although there are times that I get errors because of signal problems especially when I’m in the countryside. Anyways, it must be the service provider. The number of ring tones is also a bit limited which came to me as a disappointment. But I guess I could always download these stuff from the internet. All in all, Samsung E1080T is a great phone for simple people. It has both style and functionality at just the right price!
Summary: This phone arrived on the date promised, was new and had written instructions in English. It is still charging so I don't know if the actual phone is in English or some other language but the icon showing during the charging process has "charging" under it so I assume that the phone is set up to "speak" English. I am writing this review primarily to give kudos to the company selling this product. It arrived as promised with everything in the box as advertised.
Summary: I bought this phone for my nephew in Jamaica and it works but the charger it came with plug was different from what we use in Jamaica. The wall outlets we have in Jamaica are the same outlets as the US, this phone charger had a different jack. The good thing is, my nephew had already owned one of these phone so he had a charger that work. The price was good.
Summary: This worked perfectly for a trip to Spain. The phone arrived promptly, the battery was pre-charged and it included an adpater so I could charge completely in the US before the trip. The phone was set to English by default. Once arriving in Spain I purchased a prepaid SIM for 10 Euros which allowed me to phone/text local and international numbers. The battery showed full charge for several days of intermittent use without even needing a charge.
