Summary: Was great in helping me when the phone did not charge, the only thing was the phone they sent was not as good as the one that would not charge. But I was pleased that they did exchange it. Have purchased from they before so that is why I bought through them again.
Summary: This phone is a basic model, comfortable for those who are not familiar with newer technology, but has enough features for those who wish to dabble. Texting is naturally not as fast as on a phone with a full keyboard, but itap word prediction helps compensate for this. In a similar fashion, while web access is more limited than a modern smart phone, the large screen presents a smoother interface than most flip phones in its class.
Summary: Great phone! I was nice not having to purchase a two year service plan from the company. The instructions to activate the phone on the website provided, was very easy to follow. I receive the phone when promised.
Summary: I needed a phone that I could travel with which would work internationally. This phone provides that. It also has the capability for MP3 music, an alarm (important in other countries), and the capability for Verizon Navigator, which has been priceless traveling across the U.S. It has been extremely durable, having been dropped several times, and not only has the phone not been affected, but there are no obvious marks on the outside of the phone because of it.
Summary: I bought this phone for my husband for his birthday and I wish now I had kept it!! We are both in our 60's and we don't text at all. We do take pictures though. To Samsung------Please bring this phone or the Samsung Hue back. The older generation is slowly being deleted from having a cell phone to do what the cell was originally intended for----which is to talk wire free!!!

Summary: I have to agree that the initial battery life is very poor, but that is explained to anyone that does research on the phone before they buy it - the phone is powerful enough & has so many features that it zaps the battery. Just buy an extended battery for the phone. I think they probably should just charge more for the phone & have the extended battery be the battery in the phone when you get it, but really I still have the original standard battery and I just simply...
Excerpt: I have owned this phone for 4 days and so far it is the best phone I have owned. I bought it for travel and at this time have not been out of the country with it, but using it in my home area has been a pleasure. The phone is solid and has a good feel in your hand. The reception is clear as a land line, the screen is bright and clear, and the keys feel good when sending text messages.
