ONE MAJOR PROBLEM

peter kushner, Amazon
4 June 2013
  • Summary: This cell phone worked well except for one major feature that I really needed. The blue tooth connections between the phone and my other blue tooth devices would constantly drop. I complained to the seller, an Amazon's merchant, and I was sent a replacement. The replacement had the exact same problem. So, I am now using my old Nokia cell phone which works perfectly when paired to my car speaker phone and my headset.

stupid smart phone?

Justin Chen "jester", Amazon
5 January 2013
  • Summary: I must admit, i prefer my older phone with an actual keypad. the gyroscope is very annoying unreliable. sometimes you'll want the keyboard to turn on its side but it dosnt. "general" settings on the phone don't all work. the double tap shortcut feature dosnt work... apps. this has annoyingly few apps that you can download online. same with ringtones and ect. the samsung website dosnt even have an app website for american users. like what the fun? honestly.

not worth

  • Summary: the menu button didn't work after three months later, but the seller refused to fix it even they said it's US warranty in the title. i tried to contact the Samsung custom service to fix it, but they said my cellphone is not sold in US and it do not have the warranty. therefore, i don't recommend to buy this cell phone, there are at least one year warranty for any electronics if you buy it locally.

no docs, no phone lock

wonderchild94, Amazon
23 February 2012
  • Summary: It works well, and battery life is fantastic, but the major defect is that I wasn't able to set a passwd to lock the phone (also called "privacy" lock). The phone comes without any documentation in the box, so I spent a lot time searching on the web, apparently the default passwd should be 0000, but it didn't work. There's also a key combination that will reset the entire phone to factory settings (will remove images, ringtones..

It Didn't Work For Me

Deborah, Amazon
16 February 2012
  • Summary: Sorry to say this phone didn't work for me. From the beginning, out of the box, the phone said "Phone Freeze SIM unavailable. Contact your service provider". I tried my AT&T sim card, my husbands (AT&T), and one (AT&T) borrowed from a friend out of her IPHONE. Got the same message on all three, even after a tech from the seller told me how to reset the phone. I even called AT&T and to my surprise, the lady I talked to said that my sim card should work in any phone.

Great phone

Maheswar Vayugandla, Amazon
19 December 2011
  • Summary: This phone is very good. It is very light weight, look and feel is very good. I wanted a modern phone with wifi. After reading positive reviews here on Amazon, I ordered the phone and it arrived fast in 3 days. This phone worked perfect for me. All I had to do was just popup in my AT&T SIM card and it worked right out of the box. The wifi feature is great as I don't need a data plan.
