Easy to use and manage

cantavilla, Ebay

  • Summary: Very good option to a blackberry if you like this type of phone. I really enjoy it and trust the Samsung name. Phone is of very good quality and camera is excellent. Good clarity and easy to use and manage.

Not user friendly

equniox, Ebay
4 January 2014
  • Summary: We purchased this phn thinking it would be a good alternative to the bulky sliders we have, but within minutes of receiving them we realized they would not work for us but decided to give them a try anyway. The key pad is so small that the tip of my smallest finger covers 4 keys and texting is a nightmare, not only that the user interface is so confusing my wife wanted to throw the thing out the window as we were driving down the road.

Great phone for texting and calling

  • Summary: This is the perfect phone for you if you need it only for texting and calling. It is pretty user friendly. I down-graded from an Iphone so in comparison i am dealing with totaly differernt applications and what is available. it offers email and a camera. :) i dislike that it is somewhat hard to text on the small keyboard buttons. I like that i do not have to pay for a data plan. it has a great battery, I charged my phone 3 days ago and it is still going strong.

A solid low cost full QWERTY phone in a small and light package.

k-snax, Ebay
14 June 2013
  • Summary: This phone is a good value for basic text and talk, particularly if you want something in a really small package without a data plan. (But if you really want a true smartphone, the HTC Aria is fantastic alternative to the Magnet in a similar size.) Anyway, after a month of use, here's what I like: - Size. With a QWERTY keyboard, it is simply hard to get much smaller and lighter. I often have to double check my pants pocket to make sure I actually have it.

  • Summary: This phone worked for 3 weeks and then it just started to have lots of static, i called att to troubleshoot the phone and they knew it was the bad phone! Money lost and they had a no return policy i should have been lead by my first mind not to buy because there is no warranty!

Hate This Phone

Paige Hawkins, Amazon
16 May 2012
  • Summary: The keys are so tiny and close together that I am forever making mistakes. And the number of keys I have to press in order to add an address and send texts is ridiculous. The ringtones are awful as are the default wallpapers. Would NEVER recommend this phone and will not buy a phone without being able to try it first.

My son loves it!!!

nikki30md, Ebay
5 April 2012
  • Summary: This phone was bought as a replacement by and for my son who broke his Pantech slider. I initially replaced his phone with a basic $10 Samsung flip and he hated it. He loves that this phone has a camera, can receive his Facebook alerts and is a cool color among the kids in his school. It was in very good condition and his only complaint was that the arrow down track button is very hard to push.

it is a cute, unique-looking messaging phone at a fair price.

yolandadlt, Ebay
10 March 2012
  • Summary: I bought this because I liked the color and appearance and didn't want to spend a lot of money at the time. the buttons were a little hard to text with, but the angle on each button made it a little better. for the simplicity of the phone, it had an ok-sized screen and could navigate the internet fairly well. also since it wasn't too loaded with features, the battery life was amazing. I got what I paid for, so i give it 4 out of 5 stars.
