Summary: The phone is fine. It's a basic phone. It worked for about 2 months and then the phone just stopped charging. I used another charger that was compatible with the phone and it again did not charge. The battery was dead. In 3 months time, the battery died. This is unacceptable to me. Thankfully we had an old phone in the house and I was able to switch out the batteries and now it works fine again. Beware of old batteries when you buy from this seller!
Summary: Any insider at a Telco will tell you that they have huge margins on the phones they sell. For some smaller Telcos, the profits they make selling phones dwarfs their profits from voice/text consumption. Well, this is NOT a "smart phone" - its a "semi-smart" phone, esp since it doesn't let one download Android or Iphone apps.
Summary: I researched for days about the best type of phone to by that was NOT a smartphone. I didn't want to pay for the data plans or be tied to that type of access to the internet at all times. This phone is GREAT for my needs. The buttons are intuitive and easy manipulate. My only complaint is that it is NOT easy to lock the phone....you have to go through many screens to activate the security lock EACH time.
Summary: I chose this because it an okay product. The only thing was that I didn't get it on time. Over all its a good phone. One of the keys is a little messed up and there's some scratches and bumps on it but it work good. I kinda wish it was in a little better condition but i understand its a used phone.
Summary: Pretty good phone, had to reset if a couple times because it was malfunctioning, have to update roaming capabilities if you go into a different town. This is now my sons toy phone because I changed providers.
Excerpt: The Samsung Intensity or sch-u450 is a very okay phone. This phone has some very good qualities. My son who is 13 years loves this phone sometimes. This phone has a QWERTY keyboard which is good for my sons avid texting. LOL! This phone has a 3.0 Megapixel Camera. The only problem with this phone is that you cant zoom in very much. Which stinks. Also you can't take video. This phone has speed dial, which is great if you have a lot of contacts.
Excerpt: My wife picked out this phone for me after ours were both on their last legs. It's a nice looking little phone and the sound quality is pretty good. My wife's phone has been great with battery life and she only charges hers every few days. Mine, however, does not seem to be the same. It seems to lose juice pretty quickly and I'm not sure why since I know I use mine less than she does. The slide out keyboard is ok, but it's not something I use often.
Excerpt: I requested this phone for Christmas because I thought it would be free with my new plan. Not only was it not free, but it cost more than the phone I really wanted. Besides the initial pricing issues, the phone fell apart for the first time the day I had it, and the case would not stay on. Since then I have discovered that the back of the case is made from very thin plastic and doesn't stay on very well. One of the buttons has also stopped working.
