  • Summary: The phone is a good phone, but it may work better with AT&T as the service provider because the operating system on the phone is AT&T's. We will try several other providers with this phone because it is unlocked and has several receiver modes. Eventhough the phone is a "smart phone" it does not allow you to download apps from Google Play.

Horrible phone, waste of money, do not buy.

  • Summary: First of all, the price that people are attempting to sell this phone at is ridiculous. I bought it brand new from AT&T for $30. It is NOT worth the amount that people are trying to sell it for nor was it even worth the $30 I paid for it. Worst phone I have ever owned. Touch screen is horrible. The only thing I can say I like about it is that texting was set up a bit like the iPhone's. This phone is JUNK! Do not waste your money!

One of the worst phones I've ever experienced

  • Summary: There is a reason why this phone was a "freebie." No one in their right mind should pay money for it. This phone has been a pain from day one, and now 11 months into the contract it is nearly useless. It manages to unlock itself and makes calls all on its own if stored in a backpack or pocket. If you are actively talking on the phone, be careful... the touchscreen is super sensitive and your cheek can cause all kinds of interesting things to happen.

"Lots of features, But fails on the basics."

  • Pros: charges fast. lots of features (camera effects, customized security, etc,) ok battery life sturdy
  • Cons: no headphone jack (requires adapter) easily unlocks in your pocket. With a password, calls SOS very often. Crashes often. boot up speed :slow not so great camera forces you to keep going back to service provider for puk-code.

"I have the Samsung Solstice II. I HATE it!"

  • Pros: Only pro I can consider is it is light weight and smaller than a lot of the other phones. That is why I decided on this one.
  • Cons: Drops calls constantly. when you go to text and turn the phone sideways to text it keeps jumping back and forth. The worst think is that the X go back buttom is right above the send button so it is very easy to send before you are finished. I recently e

  • Summary: This phone is sub par in so many ways. My biggest complaints are the reception is fair at best, no head phone jack, it shuts off at any time, power cycles at anytime. overall piece of junk.

"Phonebook is a joke. Temporamental glitchy"

JonathanOz, CNET

  • Pros: Looks very pretty
  • Cons: Has many nice features that will have AT&T nickel & diming you til the cows come home. The AT&T Address book sync seldom works at all, is painfully slow and freezes on the least provocation.
