The phone is Simple, Great, Cheap and Perfect.

Summary: The phone was perfect, as it was for my less technologically advanced uncle who wanted something simple. The phone is a great start for touch screen new operative and since it's not so involved with apps and whatnot, the battery life lasts more. Great phone, definitely recommend for anyone just getting acquainted with touch screen phones and new technology in general.

Summary: Positive side: The compact Samsung Solstice II has well-rounded features, a responsive touch screen, and good photo quality from its 2-megapixel camera. Negative side: Samsung's Solstice II has a cheap-feeling chassis, the microSD card slot is located inconveniently behind the back cover, and there's no dedicated headphone jack. All in all it's just an ok phone for everyday use.
Great phone, but be careful if you buy used models.

Summary: Before I type anything else, let me be clear: I BOUGHT THIS PHONE USED. My review will reflect my experience with a used phone, which I purchased for $70. This is easily one of the best phones I've owned. the keyboard lag is a bit of a pain in the neck at times, but that isn't what is the problem here, really. The only issue I've had with this phone is the random shutdown that happens. There is no warning, and the phone simply goes black in the middle of an operation.

Cons: - texting can be a little annoying as you can only hit one key per .5 seconds and the virtual qwerty is a bit small, but still do-able - I wish the "message/voicemail" widget would stay on the homescreen. It comes on when you get a new message and disappe

Summary: I love the android os! Just wish it was a newer version...unfortunately my phone did not recieve the upgrade to version 1.6 and according to tmobile it is no longer available....otherwise I love the phone. Easy to operate and understand. I read up on alot of the forums about issues. If you purchase this phone don't use the samsung sd or a sandisk sd card and use a card that is at least class 4 or higher and this will save you the issues experienced with the sd card as...
Summary: I have used this phone for several days now and overall I like it. The processer seems a little slow (compared to my iTouch) and the set up menus are not as intuitive as I would like. I love the bright screen display and all of the different widget options. I even have better signal strength than with my previous other brand phone being able to make call places I didn't have signal before.
