  • Summary: The cell phone's mailing package was seal when I picked up. But the cell phone box seal was already opened when I opened external package warping. Carefully inspected every component, I think cellphone itself was maybe not used, but the paper holder had tears, indicating the unit had been taken out and put back. Battery was seades in the plastic wrapping. Charger looked not used but was not wrapped. Headphone was put in original plastic pouch. But seal was broken.

Had to RMA

Phong T., Newegg
3 February 2012
  • Pros: Love WP7!
  • Cons: There was a line of dead pixels on the left corner, but everything else was fine. Knowing that Newegg's RMA process was smooth, I went ahead and did it. The one I got back was clearly used, and the headphones pack was even labelled "used & not working". Newegg, I still love you, but you disappoint me.

  • Pros: Many other reviews have addressed the benefits of this phone so I will not repeat the list here.

"Barely functions. Obvious flaws and omissions."

Jerry_Mandering, CNET
12 April 2011
  • Pros: The Good: Bright large screen. easy to navigate with touch. Some app allow keyboard to use in wider landscape mode. Easy email setup. Free Samsung MAP app work as good as the subscriber app AT&T Navigator. It also does not use much data allotment.
  • Cons: The BAD: touch keyboard is too responsive, difficult to get exact key to enter. Sending emails requires manual settings for some accounts.

"Not acceptable due to false memory claims."

4 April 2011
  • Pros: Pretty. That's all.
  • Cons: Falsely advertised as expandable to 32G. Absolutely no response from Microsoft who insists on their certified SD cards of which their have been none available. Won't stay powered off while charging. Folders not available in text program.

"Windows doesn't sync with MS Outlook Contacts/Calendar"

lindawcowles, CNET
28 December 2010
  • Pros: Looks like a great phone, I played with it and bought it to replace my very functional and user friendly Blackberry Bold because I wanted a bigger screen with touch screen.
  • Cons: Microsoft, there is NO way to sync Outlook Contacts and Calendar. Bad Planning. Palm and Blackberry have done it for many years, and several Androids can do it - why not implement it on this Wondows O/S???? Bad planning.

"Huge disappointment"

karenblixn, CNET
20 December 2010
  • Pros: great screen, fast internet - most of the time.
  • Cons: You have to jump through hoops to sync with Outlook, it drops a lot more calls then my blackberry, I can't download free ringtones. I am such a MS fan, that the windows 7 has been nothing short of major disappointment.
