It's a phone!

Eldar H., Newegg
18 May 2010
  • Summary: I've had this phone for three years, dropped it countless times, and it still makes phone calls like a champ. The battery still holds its charge for a very long time. If you're looking for a phone that makes PHONE CALLS and not one of those silly smart phones (just buy a laptop, they're about the...
  • Pros: Clear calls, doesn't drop calls, robust + durable construction, fairly customizable, 2 GB SD card expansion slot, battery lasts forever, you can add music if you really want to, you can upload your own ringtones to the phone if you're remotely computer savvy
  • Cons: File transfers from phone memory to SD card take an eternity, no 1/8" audio jack, no way to transfer text messages to SD card

UMA In Samsung Slider? What A Concept!

25 September 2008
  • Excerpt: This one is one solid performer without any of the physical weaknesses that plagued the U600. Here's The Rundown: What I Liked About This Model 1- The slide mechanism is crisp but well damped. 2- The LCD lens is nicely inset which protects it from incidental bumps and hits.

Good UMA Phone, limited music player

  • Excerpt: This phone works quite nicely with my Wifi network. The phone makes for an overall nicer user experience than the t409, which my wife has for the UMA service. Most people who purchase this phone are not really looking to replace their standalone mp3 players.

14 March 2008
  • Excerpt: I had a hard time moving over to Samsung. The last one that I had was a piece of junk and chased me back to the snug little world of Nokia. That said, I had a very bad signal at my house and a very good wireless router (Cisco 871) the the Hotspot@Home idea was just grand for me...

  • Excerpt: I'm highly satisfied with this phone. The signal strength is surprisingly good, at least in comparison with my old Nokia 5300 Xpress Music. If you're looking to upgrade and want something that works well as a CELL PHONE (not a mobile computer or fashion statement) then this phone is perfect,...

Katalyst Great Phone

TMobile-Best, Phone Scoop
13 December 2007
  • Excerpt: It is really exciting to see a new Hotspot @ Home phone released to the lineup. I really think that what you get with the phone is amazing for its price. The UMA connection ability is incredibly useful and cool because it makes the phone unique from 95% of the other phones T-Mobile offers.
