Very Nice Basic Phone

Waseem Butt, Amazon

  • Summary: This Samsung Solstice II works wonderful. The sound is loud and clear and the touch screen works very smoothly. It is best for use as a basic phone. This phone do not have a wifi capability. Also the battery drains at fast rate when browsing internet.

Old school keypad

Cammie Amacher, Amazon

  • Summary: Everything else about this simple little phone is great, EXCEPT it has that weird keyboard where letters share number buttons and forget trying to find the apostrophe. I took me like 5 minutes to text my mom the other day, so I'm sending it back.

OK not great phone, decent value if you only have basic needs

romeeld, Ebay

  • Summary: We bought this to take to South Africa. We need an unlocked cheap cell phone. It has basically served its purpose, but we can't get the email function to connect to our gmail accounts. Very few apps that were loaded actually work. But we can call and text, which was the main purpose. Some basic functions like accessing your recent call history are quite tedious, have to go thru many menus. Call quality is mediocre. Haven't tried taking pictures.

Outdated features, no calculators, looks nice but not worth the $55 I spent

flasports21, Ebay

  • Summary: Great looking phone for someone on a budget. Draw back for me was due to its age and being AT&T many of the features are useless since the service no longer provides them. Could not find a calculater on it and could not find how to change the text tones. Dialing and texting was easy but you still have to use the # pad to text instead of it just showing one button per letter. No longer use it after a week, bought a used samsung galaxy S for roughly $60.

Great for texting and calling with occasional simple apps.

mightymikeman, Ebay

  • Summary: A decent almost smart phone. The built-in apps. are handy and pretty simple to use. The user interface is also intuitive. I like the touch screen, brightness, audio, photos. Size is great - very small. My wife is using this mostly for texting and calling, so we don't have an data package - perfectly fine for her use. What needs improvment - accepting a call - need to press the button down for a long time before it responds. This phone is an AT&T phone - we use T-Mobile.
