I bought this C 414 R cell phone to use in emergency situations only.
11 December 2013
Summary: My wife has MS and if she falls while I am out golfing, she simply presses an alarm and rings my phone so I can determine what action to take. It works fine and gives me peace of mind. I recently purchased a new car and discovered I can download my phone contacts directly into my car, also my music can be played thru the radio. What a great device, it's exactly what I needed and I have never lost a call. Good job Samsung !!!
Summary: I've dropped mine countless times and I've been pushed into a pool with it in my pocket. It's also been dropped into a lake, the snow, exposed to -10 to -20 C temperatures as well as 30+ C. The only issues I found were that it could be a little slow at the colder temperatures and that the back cover popped off when dropped but otherwise it's been going for 4 years or so and is still delivering.
Summary: Two big cons with this phone. Difficult to open with man hands and does not perform well close to border where I live. Constantly roaming even from my home. Then to add insult to injury it beeps and vibrates every 4 - 5 minutes to tell me it's roaming!
