Summary: First; the box did not contain a headset as stated in the product description. However, that was the least of the issues with this seller/order. When I received this phone the online and telephone activation programs could not verify the IMEI number. When I spoke to a TMobile representative it was discovered that the IMEI number printed on the inside phone label was different from the one stored electronically in the phone.

Summary: Please don't buy this phone. I only paid 20 bucks, but that's two sixpacks of Corona, plus the limes to go along. Let me back up. I love flip phones. I'm too dumb for a smart phone, and I hate butt-dialing. So when I (temporarily) lost my beloved Nokia I picked up this cute little flippie. Worked okay for about two months, then it started doing the exact same thing my last Samsung did. Namely, lots of flashing lights, error codes, then a slow, lingering death.
Summary: The pros: Inexpensive, good for making and receiving regular cell phone calls, takes adequate low-resolution photos. The cons: Texting is a hassle since the default is "predictive text" (T9) which suggests words that aren't even close to what you're trying to type. Furthermore, you can switch to regular entry (ABC), but that is on a per-text basis; you are not able to change the default setting permanently.
Summary: Dad was just looking for a simple functioning phone, the same type he's had for the past 10 years... Unfortunately, I guess they don't make these simple phones with much quality anymore to suck everyone into smartphones. This broke down and has been malfunctioning after about a month of use. At this rate, we had no choice but to start teaching him how to use smart phones.
Summary: I had this phone just over the year and worked OK just one year and few more days. It is quite basic with average battery life. However the phone was made to have a year life (or less) so I got corrupted flash memory on 380th day. Samsung technical support was not helpful at all and just simply offer a repair. The offer was to do repair at minimum cost of $17.95 (plus S&H). Keeping in mind overall value of the phone ($25 to $40) it is not worth it.
Summary: This is the worst phone I've ever had when it comes to signal strength. Dropped too many calls and always at one or two bars max. I put this one next to my old T309, I had one bar in this phone and two bars in the old one. Same network, same card, same place. I would not recommend this phone even if you are looking for a basic phone as you'd probably find better ones out there. In short, DO NOT BUY.
Summary: The phone was perfect for what I wanted it for (nothing but an occasional phone call or text), but after 6 months of light use the phone suddenly became unusable. In less than a 24 hour period, it began turning itself off and on and stopped making phone calls until finally the buttons completely locked on it rendering the phone unusable. It is now completely dead, in spite of the fully charged battery.
