Surprised

  • Summary: I'm very shocked that this phone came as fast as it did. I'm also very shocked that it didn't come with any type of charger. Nothing I can find in the listing says anything about it not coming with one.

An OK backup, liveable even as a primary phone, if that's all you need.

  • Summary: We had these phones sometime back, and I just reactivated my old beat-up one as a spare having sold my iPhone 3GS (the SIM in my 3GS was backward compatible). If nothing else, you will like the fact that you don't have to live with your charger anymore if you have been using a new smartphone.

My First Ever Phone

  • Excerpt: This was my first ever cell phone in 4th grade. Smart phones were not made then so flip phones and slide phones were big. As a young kid, this phone served its purpose. It allowed me to call and/or text my parents jut as I had gotten it for. Its fast and easy and it really wasn't a bad phone!
  • Pros: easy to use, cheap, great first phone, travel size, pretty display
  • Cons: no camera, minimal options, cheap feeling

  • Summary: Bought a simple and easy phone for my dad, and searched and searched till I found this phone. I did not want a smart phone but a simple phone and this works great. Easy to use, sturdy, big numbers, and cool games as well. Came with a charger and the phone arrived very quickly.

  • Summary: I bought this as a temporary phone, since my husband had a Galaxy S 4G phone, dropped and broke the screen, without insurance the cost to repair is pretty high but figured while I was saving up to fix, he could use this phone.

Great Phone

  • Excerpt: This is a great basic flip phone for a first phone or someone who doesn't want all the extra features of some phones of the time. ...Sadly mine went through the wash! I was so sad! I had to get a replacement phone, which in my opinion wasn't as good as this phone.

Samsung X495 T-mobile, an honest review

narn3049, Phone Scoop
8 November 2010
  • Excerpt: I got this phone spring 2005? possibly 04, around that time. I got it because my t327, had the 8 key stuck (which i later just took off) and I got a different job that gave me my own phone. I chose the Red X495, because it looked cool back then. It also looked (and was) durable. So I got it.

Durable but cheap

  • Excerpt: Really people? All you can do is complain about how cheap it is? I loved this thing for well over 3 years. The first one I had was thrown, dropped, slammed, and otherwise abused and nothing went wrong with it.
