Summary: I was told when I bought the phone that the charging cable could be used to transfer photos from the phone to my computer. Not. Since we don't have a data plan with our phone (& prefer not to have one) the only way to transfer pix is via text or the internet. We are both disappointed since we both bought the Gustos. Other than that it's a practical, handy dandy phone. Recommend to a friend? It depends on what they're looking for.
Summary: it is a phone. It works. don't try to pick it up to answer it via the sides because the buttons will cut people off - even if you lock the buttons. Upon answering, you unlock the buttons. Got it as deal with new carrier and i hate it. going back to see if they can re-activate other phone.
Cons: Did not meet expectations, voices sound tinny, speak up or other party cannot hear
Summary: try picking this phone up without turning on the camera or speaker. unless you grab it on the top and bottom vs the sides like 99.9% of normal people do, you will have them on. the menu items did not seem to be well organized and there was no cable to download the pics to the computer. the battery power is excellent!!! i've gone 5 days without a charge. my wife and i switch to Verizon in mid july and received 2 gustos. we got rid of hers within 1 month...
Summary: I have had this phone for 18 months and it has seen some hard work, and yet it keeps on working! I love that it doesn't crack the screen if it is dropped accidentally, also that it tolerates a damp and dusty environment without complaint. Thank you Samsung for making a basic phone for us hard laborers!
Cons: Won't make calls half the time even with 2 to 3 bars showing. Verizon replaced the original phone for the same problem and the replacement phone is just as bad. When near a cell booster, the phone returns error and drops the call.
Summary: I'm on my third one of these pieces of junk and would DUMP it in a second if I had the money to upgrade or buy my way out of my contract. I never dropped a call with this carrier when I used a different model phone, so everything points to the phone. It drops calls regularly and all I get from my carrier is double-speak about how odd it is that this should happen. DO NOT buy this piece of JUNK!
Cons: Did not meet expectations, drops calls, freezes while texting
