  • Excerpt: i have had this cell phone for almost two years.  i had gotten it free when i signed up for my cell plan.  if it wasnt free i would have not gotten it, the phone has great features but the sound volume is poor and sometimes the phone echos, this can be very annoying.

  • Excerpt: i've preferred samsung phones from verizon for the past four years, i've tried some of the motorola's but they're not worth the extra cash. this one is small, has great battery life and has taken a beating without giving in. i'd definitely buy it again (if they didn't replace all models every year).

Finally-a phone that really works!

  • Excerpt: I love my Samsung. I think their phones beat the rest, hands-down. Mine has the capacity to make a clear phone call, but doesn't have lots of little gadgets. It is as plain as one would design if one could order a self-designed model. After all, that's what I need a cell to do!

  • Excerpt: Less than one month after buying this phone brand new it started powering down for no reason. I would notice I haven't received a call for a while so I would check my phone and it would be off! Very frustrating and annoying! I called sprint they were no help, they said you have to contact Samsung directly.

  • Excerpt: I signed up with Verizon for two years and received three of these phones for free. Of the three only one has given me a problem over the 1 1/2 years I have had them. Verizon replaced it under the one year warranty. The phone is simple to use, but has a lot of features. I would recommend this phone for the new user, or anyone just wanting to be connected without all the hassles of the newer high tech phones.

This is truly a good phone, maybe a bit on the simple side.

  • Excerpt: This is a good phone with lots of features of others phone at half the price.  The only thing that it needs it to offer more different ringtones. This is truly a good phone to have, a little bit on the simple side compared to the other phones out on the market now of days.

Not exactly a text friendly phone, but it works great otherwise.

  • Excerpt: The Samsung SCH-A870 is a good phone for the money. There aren't many bells and whistles which tend to increase the cost of a phone while not necessarily increasing the quality. It's a very lightweight phone and not super-thin or tiny which can be an annoyance in my opinion. You can text with this phone and there are several emoticons to choose from.

Excellent all around cell phone

  • Excerpt: I purchased teh sch! 870 about 2 months ago and love it.  I also loved my previous Samsung phone as they have a clear color display, good volume and connection and battery life is decent.  I have no complaints about this phone.  I think it is super easy to use for novices and you would not be dissapointed with it.  Advanced users and tech savvy people would like it but is maybe not fancy enough for some people.
