No external memory can't save items

Summary: This was my first "Smart Phone" purchase. I did not realize that not every Smart Phone does not have an external memory card slot. It makes you think, why in the world would you create a "Smart Phone" and then not have an functionality to have additonal storage?! So, I have ran into the problem of my phone telling me it can excute functions because I have run out of space. The only software that you can use to save any items is Zune.
Summary: To say this phone is poorly designed is an understatement. It is almost impossible to find a place to hold it along its edges without changing the ringer setting. Sneeze and it opens Bing, which I'm certain gave the Microsoft team a big chuckle and maybe even a bonus (all those unwanted hits are recorded by Bing, so it seems a real competitor to Google). Making a phone call (it IS a phone, right?) requires a three-stage process just to get to the dialing touch pad.
Summary: This phone has great features, and WHEN it works it very nice. But from the second day I had it the phone freezes up when you try to make a call. And that happens at least once a day. What's the point of a phone that you can't make calls on? Its a shame really, the camera, the contact integration, everything about the phone is well made. It just freezes up way too much. Then you have to wait while it restarts, and it works from there on in until the next day.
Hate it. I can get to anything, un-useable/flawed screen..

Summary: The phone turns itself on & off, it will only dial 1 (my voicemail) i can't access anything to even use the phone, and WORST part is the replacement screen is as much as what i paid for the used phone $80. Waste of my part time money i make, which isn't much! I'm mad. (and some of my friends wonder why i'm sold as an iPhone chick?!) DON'T buy this phone!
Summary: CANNOT SEND VIDEO FROM MOBILE TO MOBILE.... BANK APPS NOT AVALIBLE, AND HAD TO TAKE BATTERY OUT AND RESET PHONE MANY TIMES WEEKLY!!! AND AT TIMES WOULD NOT CHARGE WHEN PLUGGED IN.... SMART PHONE??? PRETTY DUMB FOR A SMART PHONE!!
Needs to be removed from listing or they should give proper description and title

Summary: The title to this item says it is ... Samsung focus flash - unlocked. but if u check the description it says .... NOT UNLOCKED! NOT UNLOCKED! Basically this is a misleading item .. either they should say unlocked but locked on ATT network or just say ATT phone .... dont mislead people by just putting "unlocked"in the title. I was thinking of buying this ... but forget it ...i cant trust u guys.
Summary: My two week old phone locked up 5 times in 2.5 hours. Twice upon receiving a text message, which gets lost so you can't see it after you do the soft reset... once when an alarm went off, once when I'd just received a message someone played their turn on a game and finally right after I hit the send button on the game. Until that last one I thought the lockups were only when receiving stuff. I took the phone back and was told it was a lemon and they gave me a new one.
Summary: Microsoft invented the SmartPhone with PocketPC Phone Edition, and up until Windows Mobile 6.5, it was the most powerful, easy to use, and functional system. It fully integrated with Outlook and Exchange. Then, as usual, Apple dumbed everything down to a useless level popularized the Smartphone, stealing the market share and developer base from a product that remains today the best of its kind. So Microsoft decided it needed to imitate the idiocy.
Summary: This is my first smart phone bought on the recommendation of my son (vs iphone). I've only had it about 6 weeks and I'm on my second phone. It's been very disappointing and I wonder if I made the wrong choice.
