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.
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.

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.
Excerpt: I recently was looking for a new cell phone to replace my Motorola Razor and I selected the Samsung Rant. I feel this is a good all around phone for those who are looking for a user friendly cell phones that make calls and has extras such as internet connectivity and full key board. With the contract extension this was a very reasonably priced phone. I use this phone daily incluidng incoming and outgoing calls.
Excerpt: I bought this phone as a temporary replacement for my others and was great for the time being. The full QWERTY keyboard is conveniant although it can be uncomfortable for people with larger fingers. Not much bells and whistles compared to phones nowadays but it gets the job done. Texting, Calling, Instant messaging with yahoo, aim, and msn a camera and a few demo games. It's a standard phone so don't expect anything else.
Excerpt: The Samsung Magnet is an excellent everyday cell phone, especially if you can receive it free from AT&T with a contract purchase. The magnet is slick and comes in a great, vibrant orange color. My friends are constantly asking to see my sleek and handsome samsung magnet. The phone looks like a more expensive smartphone, such as the Blackberry, but it is much more slim and easy to slide into a pocket.
it is a cute, unique-looking messaging phone at a fair price.

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.
Summary: The phone is not that small nor big, its just the right size to fit in pocket or wherever you need to take it. The camera is not the best but its good enough. So far, I like the phone because all I do on it is text.
