Excerpt: this phone is one of the worst phones i have ever had, it is so slow to open anything and has so many glitches, not even close to worth getting, ive had a noki brick that was better than this, iphones seem to run and handle everything so much smoother and quicker.
Summary: I have a Samsung Galaxy III and read all about the mini. I expected the same phone, smaller screen and not as much memory. I got a POS. Do not waste your money. I used it 1 week, 6 days and have repackaged it up.....I cant even give it away! It hangs up, puts calls on hold, you cant hang up, cant set anything up on it. No power, bad hearing, bad speaker.
Summary: This is the phone that makes me thing a thousand time before I buy a phone not meant to use in the US. Buyers out there be aware that those phone are NO GOOD. I bought three (3) of them, two from this seller, they're all bad phones. When I say BAD, the're bad in every step of the way.
Summary: The seller was great, shipping was extra fast, and the refund was prompt. I would have just gotten a exchange if they has the phone I wanted. BUT.... This "phone" had a Faulty 3.5 headset jack and went back. I would have to HOLD my headset jack, male end, in the female socket to get it to play, and IF I turned the phone over the jack would fall out. Remember this was a NEW phone. I tried 3 different 3.5 good quality headsets to make sure it was NOT just my jack(s).
Summary: When I purchased this item, I wrongly believed that it would be compatible for use in the United States. Despite the somewhat cryptic product specifications, it appeared that it would work well with my current provider, T-Mobile, which operates "a 1900 MHz GSM PCS digital cellular network and a 1700 MHz/2100 MHz UMTS AWS digital cellular network." This was, unfortunately, not the case.
Summary: I can't review the product yet, because I cannot yet use it! it arrived with the language set to German (I think) and I can't figure out how to change it to English. The instruction manual is also not in English. Does anyone know how to explain how to change it into English, or know of an online manual that gives instructions?
Czech Republic SmartPhone is NOT 'International SmartPhone', beware!!
8 December 2011
Summary: Phone was in Czech language. It had installed an 'O2 Czech Republic' carrier ROM, instead of a carrier-free "International" ROM. Even though the description said "international", it was in Czech and with Czech applications installed that were part of the 'O2 Czech' ROM (couldn't be uninstalled). I went with another Android through image icons, to the language menu, in order to change it. Next step: flashing the ROM to a standard Samsung one in order to use it in the US.
Summary: This phone does not connect to the Orange network. No mobile number listed on the box. No connection to Orange equals unusable phone. I will not being buying any mobile phones from amazon again. Does not work hence waste of money. Will stick to O2. Will return other unboxed phone as that is also Orange and suspect that will not work.
