Pros: it still turns on (most times)
Cons: Takes screen captures randomly when lock button is pushed, sent back and new one does same, gave up. 8 months old, good condition, but now it doesn't want to connect to computer, doesn't always stay on charger, out of room... more in summery

Pros: This phone has great features- it is pretty user friendly and I love the different screens and app options.
Cons: Does not sync well with work calendar and contacts. Every few days it actually locks me out of my work computer account, so I can't even log onto my work computer. It also freezes regularly requiring me to take out the battery at least once a week.
Not a good experience with the Samsung Mesmerize!!

Summary: I bought this phone as a new phone to replace my Motorola Razor and wound up having to replace my Mesmerize with another Mesmerize. I really liked the phone when I first bought it but I soon started having problems with it. The signal strength was horrible and battery life was okay unless you talk a lot and then the battery like was horrible. I had all of the upgrades done to the phone by US Cellular so I would know they were done correctly.
Cons: Drops calls, loses network connection, freezes, unstable, you can not trust that all apps will load, battery drains fast and slow to recharge. Had phone for just over one month and have had to take it back to store twice for software updates, phone still
