Summary: We purchased this as an emergency phone for our upstairs bedrooms - if we are broken into and our phones are downstairs its always good to have a backup. We also used this while we were in Mexico with a mexican sim card. Worked just fine - call quality is ok. Battery life is great on standby. If you need a cheap phone, this will work great.
Summary: Just got it today and it's a nice little phone at the right price. It's kinda small so I'm giving it to my dad but I think it deserves 5 stars for the price I paid. Everything is functional and the build quality does not feel flimsy to me. It's all plastic so it's very light weight compared to my Motorola SLVR. The one game included is unlocked too, not just a preview version. This phone is for those that just want to make phone calls. No camera, no frills.
Summary: I was looking for a no-frills phone to use on a daily bases and I have that in the product. It's simply and works everywhere I go. And unlike my previous phone even when the signal bar is low I can make calls.
Summary: We have a family share plan which rarely go over the limit meaning we don't use our cell phones that much. So instead of taking a leap for the smart phone, we decided to just stick with "dumb" phones for maybe another year. So I began searching for one and didn't take long to come across this model since these "dumb" phones are at near extinction. Given the price and Samsung brand, I thought I won't have much to lose.

Summary: i love this phone because it is simple to operate and it gets a signal almost anywhere. i own a house that is over a hundred years old. made of conrete blocks. my old phone(a samsung) didnt work in the house. i had to go outside in the rain or cold to call my doctor or daughter and thus i didnt spend much time on it and i wasnt using my minutes. my old phone died. i ordered this one. since i dont have much money i chose a cheap phone.
