Automatically gets disconnected from the network
8 March 2014
Summary: This phone automatically gets disconnected from the network. The basic purpose of a mobile phone is being connected. This phone does not serve that purpose. You think you are connected and people can call you anytime if there is a need. But you do not realize that your phone automatically got disconnected from the network and not connected with the people you thought you were until you open your phone and see ' Emergency Calls Only'.
Summary: This is a very basic smart phone. Not one to use if you've used better, such as an IPhone or Galaxy S3. I wouldn't even recommend this for a teenager, because they are normally more savvy than adults are. The main complaint I have is that the Internet is very slow and the Mobile hotspot is pretty much non-existent due to the slow Internet connections. I will be sending this back tomorrow!!!
Summary: I was looking for a basic smartphone that I can use to run some basic apps like Skype, Wattsap, Facebook, etc. but it takes too much time to run FB and WS and it can not even run Skype. Is good for a kid.
Phone is good but international model is causing issues

Summary: I like this phone, its for my 13 year old son. Everything works great except one thing. The Access Point Settings needed set up to allow the data network for T-Mobile. Internet was then working fine. But everytime I change the MNC setting to 260 for T Mobile it wipes out all the other settings. I was told my T-Mobile and Samsung that neither can help me because this is an international phone. So basically now we cannot use MMS (picture messaging) on this phone.
Summary: When you make a phone call the screen locks every 5 seconds roughly and you have to keep unlocking while entering the numbers eg when topping up or selecting options. i googled it and many people have this problem. Screen is so small that when keyboard is on, its so easy to mistype, which is worse when the screen keeps locking. the lock is nothing to do with the time-out security lock which i adjusted to 5 minutes but still no hope. returning the product .
