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.
Summary: I chose this phone because it holds two SIM cards which you can switch between without having to remove them. I wanted an inexpensive phone to use in France and the U.K. On vacation. I was able to purchase SIM cards in Paris and London very easily, and they worked great! Now I have a back up phone to use at home as well. I would definitely recommend this phone.
Summary: A spare phone to carry as a backup. Also will carry an iPhone 4S with international coverage but due to the high cost of calling plus roaming, I plan to use the Samsung for occasional calls back to USA and the iPhone for Wi Fi access. Samsung works fine in US with a UK sim card for USA and Europe (and Asia). Lightweight and the standby time seems very long, may not have to carry charger on a 10 day trip. Sound quality is adequate. The two SIM slot is handy.
Summary: I bought this phone to use it while traveling to the US and I must say I'm impressed with how good it is. It's a great phone to use as a replacement phone: it supports the two sim cards very well, battery last very long, it's incredibly light and very reliable. The fact that it's 4quad also allows you to use the same phone practically everywhere. Very satisfied with the product.
Summary: Good replacement phone, works as expected. Never hanged so far. Has a flashlight, which is handy. Has multiple alarms, which work even if the phone is off, which is even more handy. Battery lasts arround 4 days.
