Excerpt: I have had to go to store many times due to frequent freezes. All they ever did was factory reset. and nothing helped. It took a year before the OS was upgraded, and still never helped. I became a pro at opening the case to take out battery as that was the only way I could re-start the phone. Some apps never did work on that phone. I have put FB back to the original installed version; I have done its upgrades, FB NEVER would load on this phone.
I think this a good type of phone, but I had bad luck with this one.

Summary: I brought this phone as Christmas gift for a friend. When I received it I noticed that It was not shrink wrapped. After giving the phone to my friend, there a white line going down the display screen. Two Verizon reps stated that this is manufacturer defect. My friend has reported to me she has to take the battery out once a day because the phone would lock up or freeze up. I'll have claim on this product it was supposed to be brand new, sealed and undamaged phone.
Excerpt: I've had the Continuum for about 2 months now and regret purchasing it. Given what I know now, I would get an iPhone. The display is nice, but the disadvantages outweigh this. The OS (v 2.1) is buggy, I have to restart the phone about every other day to set things straight. It will not connect to my Macbook Pro. My only hope is that v 2.2 will improve some of these things, because I'm stuck with this for 2 years.
Excerpt: I almost returned the Continuum twice in the last 4 months ready to pay Verizon the penalty. I have now traced the problems like sluggishness, touch screen not working etc to over.heating When it is cool I would rate it a 5 without question. Other smartphones apparently have similar problems. I don't know if the Galaxy S line is worse than average.
Excerpt: I recently got this phone and sent it back in the 30 day trial period. It freezes (a lot) and the screen is very small. It's difficult to type even when I turn the phone horizontally. I'm a recruiter and work daily with social media but this phone was too much even for me. There was so much flashing and the ticker on the bottom kept going so often that I actually found it all too distracting and wound up turning off almost all of the features that made me want the phone...
