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: The phone was okay at first, but service was always spotty. I got the phone on June 8 to replace another phone that had been damaged (after having it for nearly two years). I left for vacation July 14 and on the way there, my phone died. The battery was fully charged but I tried plugging it in when I got there, but no use. The phone lasted a little more than a month, and was a WASTE OF MY MONEY.

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: 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: I was just looking for a good cheap phone for work that I wouldnt worry about if I lost. Iwanted it to have some functionality so I could input a lot of phone numbers, info, music,etcetera.The letter keyboard is not the qwerty type or the standard phone setup so it takes a lot of time to enter text. I am pretty slow but this makes it way slower.
