AT & T Samsung SGH-a117

  • Excerpt: I recently purchase the AT&T Samsung SGH-a117 at a local discount store. As far as I know it is a Pay-As-You Go Phone on the AT&T network. I’m probably one of the few consumers choses not become a part of a contract, so the Pay-As You Go Plans work …

Great for someone who just wants a phone. Outstanding price.

  • Summary: My wife and I are retirees. We don't Text. We don't film movies or snap pictures with our phones. All we use them for is to telephone one another or for long distance calling. This phone is perfect for this. Be careful, though. If you drop this phone often enough on hard concrete, the screen is likely to shatter. That's true of almost any phone, though, and my old fingers don't hold on to things as well as when I was younger, so this is my third one of this model.

  • Summary: Cheap phone that sometimes works, it does not seem to get as good reception as other phones. Would recommend spending a little more money and get something better.

My samsung phone

  • Excerpt: I bought this phone for $55 with a $20 rebate in August 2008. The main and only reason I bought the phone was it was among the cheaper range and I wanted a phone which has a flap. I like its display telling me who's calling and I can just open the flap to answer the call.But you can reject the call if you activate this setting(Open to Answer in Extra Settings). :) A main problem I found about this phone is you have to manually copy one contact at a time to the SIM.

Perfect uncomplicated cellphone for my prepaid plan.

  • Summary: This is my 3rd Samsung A117 phone. My last one got soaked (exact method not suitable for a public forum.......). No fancy cameras (I have 2 Nikons for photo work should I wish to take a nice photo). No bluetooth stuff. (I avoid jabbering behind the wheel). The wife loves hers too. Can't go wrong for the ridiculously low price... Sure hope Samsung makes some basic cellphones like this in the future.

  • Summary: We were looking for a small, inexpensive phone for our ten-year old and this phone fits the bill quite well. It is easy to use and just the perfect size and design for our son.

Decent Low Cost Phone!

  • Summary: Phone is a good basic phone. Not for those who want all the bells and whistles! The only problem I have is with the back battery cover. It seems to be ill fitted and wants to come off when in your pocket. Have to check it all the time since the phone shuts off and you miss calls if the back slides off. Bottom line you get what you pay for and it is a good basic phone if you just just use it for the very basics!
