Summary: The Good: Great battery life (at least with no web use), nice size, awesome reception anywhere I go, use of calendar, alarm, etc. The Bad: If you like to text, don't bother with this phone. I make a million mistakes since day 1. It simply won't register some keys and then it will register other keys about 2-3x, this is VERY annoying so I'm getting a new phone specifically because of this reason since I do text often.
Summary: The phone has been wet at some point because the water indicator is pink, there was some wear marks on the case of the phone (as described), the previous owners information is saved to the memory on the phone, there is an alarm that keeps going off that we are not sure how to shut off (and I have this phone already). However, for the price it was as expected and as described.
Fun, simple little phone for those who need a QWERTY keyboard

Summary: I've had this phone for the last year and a half. I personally adore QWERTY keyboard phones, so I thought that this phone was perfect when I bought it. Unfortunately, a few months in, the speaker quality completely deteriorated and I can only hear people if I put the phone on speaker. This is why I'm going to replace it soon with something else. PROS: -QWERTY keyboard, as well as number keyboard.
Summary: Just bought this phone, love the number keys as well as the qwerty keyboard. takes time to get used to it, but hey, what doesn't..not sure if all the Gravity 3's but since I bought mine used, the slide seems to be worn out. doesn't slide like all the other Samsung slide phones, which i loved until now. I'm assuming it is because of the fact that it was used, but I am still unsure. Highly recommended if you text like a maniac!
Summary: A great phone except for power problems. The battery didn't hold the charge very long. Had to turn the phone off to charge it. And then it would take 4 or 5 tries each time to turn it back on. May have just gotten one with problems.
Summary: I brought this phone for my husband who needed something easy to use. It has the 10 key as well as the qwerty keyboard in case he should ever need to send a text. The menu is easy enough to use but I don't like the fact that I have to go to the menu when I want to do something like sending a text or use the clock or calculator. However this is for my husband and it is okay for him for his needs and wants. For the price I can't complain.
Summary: I liked that the phone was unlocked and i got it because i wanted to experience a new phone. I didnt like that it looked slim in the picture but when i got it, it was a bulky phone. Also the manufacture the quality of the phone didnt look all that great. The features were okay and the way the phone slides was cool but I dont think Its worth the amount i paid for it.
Average phone, nothing special! Coul have been better!!

Summary: alright phone, internet is slow and the screen is too small to surf the web! Also web services are 10 dollars extra per month. Also gps has to be paid for monthly for the phone. The phone itself could be better for the price it is retailed at.
