This phone is not very well thought out.

  • 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...
  • Pros: Built-in speakers, Bright display, Inexpensive
  • Cons: design layout of buttons

poorly designed

  • Summary: The ear jack issue mentioned in other reviews, true. Phone cuts back and forth between the earpiece and phone on its own. Not very good when using it for driving. Have to open the phone to make calls, and then it will hang up when you close it, also terrible design when trying to use the earpiece. Unbelievable that it cannot download the photos to a computer. It is 2011! Camera button and speakerphone button way too close to each other.
  • Pros: Bright display, Realistic color
  • Cons: Poor quality, Did not meet expectations, will not sync with a computer

  • Summary: The phone is very basic and difficult down loading Pic's without paying high text message fee's charged by the provider. Recommend the Samsung SCH-U640 which allows download to a USB card to transfer to your computer without using online services.
  • Pros: Inexpensive
  • Cons: Did not meet expectations

I would have purchased another model.

H82shop, Samsung

  • Summary: I have major problems with this phone model. First, the reception on this phone is horrible. Conversations break in and out and eventually the call is dropped. Second, whenever I am texting, the phone freezes up and I am having to save the message. This freezing is annoying. Lastly, I downloaded the Samsung assistant to help upgrade my phone's software. However, each and every time I have plugged my phone the software won't recognize it.
  • Cons: Poor quality, Did not meet expectations, drop calls/messy call, texting function annoying, limited txting icons

Poor product features

Thomas Stover, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this phone as my option with the autoclub phone service which runs through Verizon. This review is for the Samsung U360 phone only .... not the service. I hated my previous cell phone where I was constantly changing operating features whenever I would accidentally touch one of the buttons on the side of the phone .... which was almost every time I answered it. This phone is a better in that regard ... but not perfect. Fair.
