Summary: The ad said one thing, the phone I got had no ringtones, wallpaper, silent mode, it was a cheap Canandian pay phone, and came without a manual to set phone. Tried my "sim card', mailbox would not work. Returned phone, once problem was understood. HATE looking at phones on Amazon, because you can not find what the phone offers for extras. Trying to find a new phone elsewhere.
Summary: My goal was to buy a GSM flip phone to use it in international trips. Samsung SGH-C414M satisfies my requirements. Most important is that it is new, with excellent battery. Provided user guide is short, but you can use info on Samsung web site, and it has a usual phone interface. Sound quality is good. It works well with Telna international SIM card. It is slim and fits well into a pocket.
Summary: Excluding the i-phone, there are 2 name brands I consider better than the rest. In my opinion, both Samsung and Motorola make the best quality cell phones. Now for the Samsung C414M, this is a very well built phone, yet still sleek but not to small. I prefer a flip phone, or clam shell type (whichever you like to call them). I have no need for a smart phone, as I only use this phone, as a phone. The camera and other features are simply a bonus, that I'll never use.
Summary: Got it for my husband. Unlocked. Keys are big and illuminated. Good sound quality. Quad band so I'm planning to use it for our next international trip. My husband does not text or play on his phone. He just wanted a phone to use as a phone. Perfect for his needs.
very good basic phone w/ a few more bells than I expected

Summary: This is a very good basic phone w/ a few more bells than I expected. Camera & MP3 player are serviceable. Built-in software can render text and word documents. "Operating System" is easy to use even w/o looking at the downloaded pdf manual. Had no trouble moving files from the phone to the microsd card. My biggest complaint is the lack of a 3.5mm headphone jack. The supplied headphones use the micro usb port.
Summary: The best phone for the price, Has everything you can expect from regular flip phone. Start working right away with my provider - T-mobile. My previous experience- to stay on phone with customer service for 5-6 hours till they agree that have to give me settings for certain phone even I didn't buy from them. Works perfect, good battery life.
Summary: I bought this one to replace an older flip phone. We travel internationally so it is good to have one I can use with an inexpensive SIMM in a foreign country and have local phone access there. It has a screen you can see when it's folded so you know who's calling without opening it up. The sound is good. It takes decent pictures. I had to call Samsung tech support to figure out how to get the pictures to save to the mini SD chip I put in it.
Summary: I ordered this phone for my mother who is not into smartphones. This is a great basic phone. Very easy to use and the voice quality it amazing. SInce it is unlocked I tried it on both AT&T and TMobile, and it works great. if you want a basic phone to place and receive calls seek no further. Yo ordené este teléfono para mi madre que no anda en eso de los teléfonos inteligentes. Este es un teléfono básico muy bueno. Muy fácil de usar y la calidad de voz es asombrosa.
