Works, but I wouldn't rely on it for anything serious.

Ryan Sterling, Amazon
15 January 2014
  • Summary: Works in most situations, but can be really finicky, especially in Paris for some reason. Low quality cheap device. But if you are going on a short trip overseas you will probably be ok with it.

Great travel accessory

Samm, Amazon

  • Summary: Good travel phone. I recently made a trip to Australia & NZ & took this along. With the sim cards purchased in both countries, I was able to stay in touch with the family at home more cheaply & coordinate tours easily. Keeps a charge for a long time.

Simple but does the job

Mukesh Sahu, Amazon
24 October 2013
  • Summary: I bought this to use abroad with local SIM cards and it did the job well. It has very easy functionality to manage dual SIMs, offers straightforward operation, and is small and lightweight. Obviously it's not a smartphone so there aren't a lot of bells and whistles, but if you need a small, portable phone to make cheap calls and texts while abroad, this is a great choice.

Perfect little workhorse

SonoWicked, Amazon
8 October 2013
  • Summary: I bought this Samsung unlocked phone for my trip to Italy. I also took my iPhone and paid $120.00 for two hundred minutes and $120.00 for a data plan from AT&T. I went through the minutes during the first week of my four week trip and decided to see if I could get a SIM card for my little Samsung. I hadn't trusted that it would work, so I paid in my opinion too much to use my iPhone in Italy.

Write up wrong.

  • Summary: Returned the phone, it is not a quad band phone as the write up states should be corrected to avoid further confusion.

Total waste of money - wish I tested earlier

Linda, Amazon
8 August 2013
  • Summary: I bought this phone for a trip to Europe. The sim card I used is from Lycamobile or T-mobile (tried both). The phone/card did not work in Europe at all. Back in the US, majority of the calls are not clear or dropped. It's a total waste of my money. Don't buy it!!!

Does not work in the US, comes with Greek as default language

tudorachet, Amazon

  • Summary: 2013.08.06: Here is the latest update. I was contacted by the seller (Mobile Best Sellers) apologizing that they had a distribution error with this product, and they sent me the wrong model of the phone. A few dozen people were affected by this error. FYI, I got the Samsung GT-E1182 (no "L" at the end), which is dual band, not quad-band. I've returned the phone, and got a full refund on it. At least, this makes sense now.
