Summary: The phone has many features that are unaccesible unless you subscribe to a Data Plan. I wasn't aware of that when I purchased the phone. As a basic cell phone it works fine but I may have to go the extra mile in terms of subscribing to a Plan in order to exploit all the goodies that came with this phone. I'm currently on a Pay As You Go plan from t-Mobile. I've only used the phone for a few weeks so I can't say much about the longevity of this baby but so far so good.
Excerpt: This is a good phone to have if you do some of the little things that a smartphones have but does not have all of the features of a typical smartphone. There are screensavers on the phone that cannot be altered. this is frustrating because some of them are kind of girly and if a man has this phone it makes it frustrating ebcause you cannot adjust which ones show up. You cannot play many good games on this phone because of the touchscreen.
Excerpt: Shame on AT&T! This phone was sold to me as an alternative to the pricey iPhone. The run down: it is an all touch phone, can do text, e-mail and internet. The picture quality is pretty good for a cell phone. However, as an iPod Touch user (and lover!) I know just how fun it is to be able to download your fave app and play to your hearts content....the Samsung Solstice, you can't have any apps!
Excerpt: this is a so-so for a replacement cell phone for people who do not text that much, Personally I would go for a Apple iPhone 4 regardless of the antenna design issue. its all just a publicity stunt from Apple to make money out of it.
Excerpt: The Samsung solstice is one of the few successful phones at&t has out. the features are solid for the most part. the touch screen is very responsive and accurate. The interface is organized and easy to remember. The camera is a 2.0 mega pixel and has a video recorder which works surprisingly well. Web browsing is somewhat smooth and has a very comfortable feel to it.
Excerpt: I have had this phone for almost 2 years now and I can not wait until I can get a new one. This phone is very average nothing special about it at all. The battery life is one of the few things that is good about this phone. The touch screen is not responsive at all and can not be calibrated to a very good responsiveness. The widgets in theory are a good idea but the unability to customize them is a drawback.
