Summary: Not the phone in the pictures and on top of that it wasn't really "unlocked" because it couldn't go online PERIOD. I found from someone else's review on a different style of phone they're on different waves that not all carriers here have, so like verizon might work with it but ATT does NOT.
Excerpt: i only used it for 3 months before it got really damaged, it is crap and was before smart phones where invented(i think). the screen is resensitive the only good thing is the size of the screen but it ain't great at all.
Pros: big screen for it's time, good theme, have widgets
Cons: resensitive, sim-card holder gets broken preety quick afer using it a culple of months, bad internet connection, bad to make phone calls with, half-bad camera
Summary: We had to wait some time to get the phone. No fault of the vendor. It had to arrive in Africa via a pouch. When it arrived the phone was NOT unlocked, as stated. We had to pay to have that done. The instructions to use the phone are practically unreadable.
Very basic features, Limited Custom Options, Software is Terrible

Summary: The phone is small and has a touch screen, the two main reasons for my selection. It's light alright, and nice-looking. It has the advantage that the SM card can be removed without lifting the battery.
Summary: I bought two of these and my husband and I both wish we had different phones. They feel kind of cheap, they are very lightweight. I think the most annoying thing about them is that the picture messaging does not work (I know you run that risk with unlocked phones) and that when you are on a call in...
Excerpt: please change the port of charging and handsfree because it is not reliable it is defected soon it will be like nokia's charging port. so if you like my suggesstion so keep it on and made new samsung's port a single hole anyway the battery timing is tooo good i like it very much
Pros: charging and handsfree port is not reliable
Cons: it will too god if there is a flash light with camera
Summary: I was excited to see a simple, small, and touchscreen phone for such a fair price... getting a new phone was long overdue. Well the problem starts when "I" cannot receive pictures, I cannot send out pictures, mainly MMS is not available with this phone.
