Excerpt: The newest of the Sprint line of cell phones to come out this one is a great text phone! it’s a side slider which displays a full qwerty keyboard which allows for easy texting especially for those like me that have chubby fingers!
Excerpt: When I first purchased the Samsung Rant, I was won over quickly by its style, ease of use, and wonderful features. First of all, I love the keyboard which flips out easily under the main keypad.
Excerpt: I bought my Samsung Rant two years ago because I was highly impressed with the looks and features of this phone. The only other cellphone I had ever owned was a flip Sprint Sanyo phone that didn’t really have too many features on it at all so I only …
Got the red one. The red lettering keys are difficult to see.

Summary: Got this for my husband. He is semi colored blind. The red lettering on the keys are very difficult for him to see. Should have gotten the black with white lettering. Phone is easy to operate if you don't care for the smart phone.
Summary: I was told that it was a brand new phone and there is no way that it is brand new. The charger does not fit tight into the phone and will not charge my phone. It is a slide phone and it does not sit tight back together after you slide it open to use the keyboard. I am very dissatisfied with what I purchased.
Summary: We did not need another smart phone but wanted a keyboard to text. This does the job, has a passable camera and looks good, too. The prices have been going up as "dumb" phones are getting harder to find, I guess.
Summary: I have had this phone for 5 years, and am about to buy a new one. For 5 years I have no complaints. I did not expect smart phone 4g speed, but the web is quick enough not to complain. Great GPS navigation, I have used it for work and navigation for 5 years. Text, e-mail, IM is great. Tough phone. I have had it in a plastic case the whole time, dropped it out of my jacked up jeep onto pavement many times. No problems.
Summary: The old flip-phone finally failed. My wife prefered a phone with a slide-out keyboard, but didn't want an expensive data plan. Since my daughter has been using a Samsung Rant for a few trouble-free years, I thought it would be a good choice for my wife as well. No regrets! It's a great rugged phone, easy to learn and use, with excellent voice clarity. It has a very nice camera, and is perfect for text messaging.
