Excerpt: I wanted to let you know the Samsung a157 is an awesome phone...even if it is a flip phone. I dropped it to the bottom of the pool today (for the second time!!!) and the little gem still works perfectly!!! It laid on the bottom for 15 minutes before I realized I had dropped it in..
Excerpt: Samsung makes an incredible product. But I cannot use, or recommend, them. Reason: I prefer using corded headsets, to talk hands free while driving. This phone, like so many other Samsung products, do not use the industry standard 2.5mm/3.5mm headset jack.
Excerpt: There are some things about this phone that I prefer over my original phone and some that I liked better about my other phone. In my previous phone you could view the phone number or the contact without opening the phone. You cannot do this with the new phone; there is no window on the cover.
