Got a chance to play with this phone

21 September 2009
  • Excerpt: The only reason i gave it a 3.5 is because I do not have this t-mobile network, and I couldn't call anyone- my friend asked me to list the phone on eBay and I sold the phone for 309.000 it was almost brand new.

  • Excerpt: This phone works pretty good. The camera is awesome. it looks like a real digital camera. And it has a memory card slot but every time you want it, you have to take out the battery which is a pain. But the battery life is amazing! I am pretty impressed with this little phone.

Solid UMA Phone

  • Excerpt: The Katalyst has very nice sound quality and signal from T-Mobile in Orange County, CA. I opted for the HotSpot@Home package in order to take advantage of free unlimited minutes anywhere with a WiFi signal.

Exceeds My Expectations

  • Excerpt: I use T-Mobile because I travel overseas a lot and found the Verizon CDMA/GSM phones a hassle. I put up with the less broadly available T-Mobile network in the US and the slower data speeds as a trade-off. My primary goal is good voice coverage. Prior phone: Motorola PEBL.

  • Excerpt: I got this phone for my birthday last week and I must say I really do love it! The only complaint that I do have involves texting. I noticed that my text messages are saved to my SIM automatically. In order to keep from having to constantly erase them, I have to manually save them to my phone.

Nice Hardware, Software could use an upgrade

  • Excerpt: This phone seems like a nice phone. I've only had a few days. The first thing that I noticed is that it has a proprietary data/power connector. Would it have been that hard to use the standard miniUSB jack? It would have been an excellent feature.

A Little Impressed?

CaseyL04, Phone Scoop
15 December 2007
  • Excerpt: We just purchased this phone on 12.11.2007, and so far it is just like the rest of the samsungs that T*Mobile has (t-629, trace). The menu setup and everything is pretty much the same. I don't recall there being a tip calculator in the others though.
