  • 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 …

  • 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.

  • Summary: Like paying double for 1 phone, will never buy another phone from New Egg.
  • Pros: Bought two of these. One of two phones work, basic phone, does the job.
  • Cons: Other phone drops calls, ALL the time after 32 days with a 30 day warranty. Now wondering how long first phone will work.

A good phone to have

Smiles16, Phone Scoop
13 March 2009
  • Excerpt: Pros: Good phone to text on and to call from. Nice look and good battery. Cons: Has no service in some areas, freezes a little bit. Summary: I got this phone after my tracfone had crapped out on me and lost my minutes I had on it. So I switched from tracfone to AT&T Go Phone Pay As You Go phone.

Avoid at Any cost

Cell Saver, Phone Scoop
13 October 2008
  • Excerpt: I've had this phone for a month and the power button already sticks making it difficult and at times impossible to power on. The screen also freezes at times. The side volume button is also too easily pressed while holding the phone.

  • Excerpt: I am on at&t and am in the middle of my contract when my moto razr v3xx took a dive into the ocean. I needed a cheap basic phone just to use till i can renew my contract and get another razr. This phone is small, light weight and overall a good looking phone.

big disappointment

10 July 2008
  • Excerpt: This phone turned out to be an absolute catastrophe for me. Before my AT&T contract expired in January, I had broken my SonyEricsson phone and needed a quick fix for two months. For $49, the A117 was the right phone at the right time. I was pretty content with what I had gotten with the phone.
