Summary: I bought this phone for my mother. After two days, she complained about having lots of static noise. Neither of us liked how the touchscreen operated either. If you are looking for a basic phone, I wouldn't recommend this phone.
Good phone, but the lack of threaded messaging sinks it

Summary: I like so many features on this phone, it's nice and light and the keyboard is nice and easy to use, but the lack of threaded messages just makes it a pain to use. It seems like such a simple thing, but not having it makes having a coherent conversation pretty difficult.
Phone mutes itself, pocket dials, and feels clunky

Excerpt: After much deliberation, I decided to go with ATT with another 2 year agreement with a new samung flight, and most of the time, I've regretted that decision. Although it has a touch screen and a QWERTY keyboard, it takes the bad from both parts. The Touch screen is clunky. The worst part of it is if you are right-handed, with decently high cheek bones, and you think you might just decide to rest your phone against the side of your head every now and then, expect to put...
Excerpt: I wish there were more good things I could say about this phone, but unfortunately my experiences during the year I owned it were not all that great. The Samsung Flight itself is a fairly unattractive phone, sporting a shape and design that look like it's trying to capture the Blackberry crowd. Sadly it just ends up being fairly awkward to handle.
Excerpt: I received this samsung flight as a replacement phone due to my other phone being damaged. I have not been impressed with the flight at all. The menus are not set up logically in my opinion. It is hard to navigate. The phone doesn't function well. In places I had service with my previous phone I don't with the flight. Overall it is just a pain and I cannot wait to renew my contract and get a new phone. Also, it will randomly not charge.
Summary: I am a huge fan of Samsung phones. I never buy out of Samsung on any item, tvs, blu ray players, anything, anytime, its always Samsung. But this phone, omg. This was a disappointment. I was forced to buy this phone when I received my upgrade because the Samsung Impression had a glich, and everyday, I had to turn it off and on again to continue to get txt msgs. So I walked out with the Flight.
