Summary: The Samsung SGH-A717 offers an admirable feature set and good call quality. We'd just like to clear up a couple of design issues.
Pros: The Samsung SGH-A717 has decent call quality and a speedy Web connection. It also offers a diverse range of features, including world phone support, 3G compatibility, a 2-megapixel camera, and Bluetooth.
Cons: The Samsung SGH-A717 has a tiny external display, a flat keypad, and average streaming-video quality. Also, it lacks a camera flash and it doesn't come with the necessary USB cable for PC syncing.
Excerpt: I shopped for a phone on-line that would give me a phone and a really huge number of minutes per month with rollover features. The Samsung A717 was an easy choice. I got the Family Nation Plan with 3,000 roll-over minute capacity and the phone only cost me a penny.
