Excerpt: About two months ago I purchased the Samsung Intercept with the carrier Virgin Mobile. So far I love the Android 2.1 operating system, which I found easy to use; the battery, which has never died on me; and the included gps, which I use whenever travelling to a foreign …
Excerpt: Outside: Personally, I prefer a phone that is as small as it can possibly be, yet still allows me to efficiently use the screen; and I am quite partial to the ability to use my phone as an accessory that reflects my personal style.
Excerpt: I absolutely loved this phone for the time being that I had it. I own the Blackberry Curve with Virgin Mobile, and I love everything about them! I get amazing call quality, unlimited text and web on my Blackberry, and for a super low price!
Small phone, reliable, great battery, weedy speaker, chunky. Good beginner.

Summary: To start, the phone was used. Other than that, the calls, texts and even web surfing was acceptable for a device of that age. The slide out keyboard makes it easier to type, particularly when using extensive typing like facebook, etc. Don't expect to play newer games on it. This phone was purchased for my son...perfect size for him. For us bigger guys this phone is tiny. My index finger covers like 2 or 3 apps. It is bulky to keep in pants pocket. Forget the back pocket.
Not good as a phone, but works well as a GPS logger!

Summary: The Samsung Intercept was my first smartphone. It has such a small amount of RAM that even the most basic of operations takes forever. Often, when receiving a call, the phone would ring but not respond to my attempts to answer the call. Finally, the phone would spontaneously reboot. I'd end up calling the person back 5-10 minutes later. Do NOT consider this device for use as your main phone! This was Virgin Mobile's first Android phone.
Summary: I got this phone because I'd recently wanted to get an Iphone but didn't have the money to at the time. I'd had the phone previously for about a year or two before I finally broke it and it was an internal thing (battery connector). Overall, I liked this phone. That's why I got it again.
