Summary: I bought this phone after my previous one lost its life in the dog's water bowl!! I like that it is a Samsung, my preferred brand, that the full keyboard is hidden under the slider, that a call can be answered without having to open the slider, and that the phone is unlocked so I don't have to get into a contract. I use it without a data plan so my primary interest was in good call sound quality and a comprehensive contacts function, which it does have.
Summary: I was looking for a cheap phone to use as a temporary phone until I can afford another Smartphone, and so far this one has done good. It still has internet access, which is nice. It texts and calls great too. The only things I don't like are the keys are really small, there is no headphone jack, and it doesn't have a speaker phone option. Otherwise its good.
Summary: I'm unable to use the phone as a complete T-mobile device even though the sim card works for calls and text messages... It will NOT allow me to send/receive pictures or connect to the internet... It was advertised from the seller as an unlocked T-mobile/AT&T device. I was unable to setup the MMS and Wap settings from T-Mobile into this phone. It is not a certified T-Mobile phone.
Summary: Almost one of my top phones . Loved all the features and ease of use . Feels a bit cheap but I like the look and feel . I am not a tech junkie , or data user . I only text and make voice calls . Had to put phone away for the fact that qwerty was way too small for my fingers . My thumb almost covers 4 numbers . Too difficult for me to text on . Great starter phone or maybe for small hands or should I say fingers .
Hope to upgrade to a better storage on text messages.

Summary: I had one just like this one that drowend in the kids pool. I like this phone because it easy but the only thing I found out I don't like about it is that I have to clean out my texting just about every week to be able to text or recive text.
Summary: It's a good basic phone for texting. Has the same features as the Samsung Propel, but in a prettier package. It's still a little large, and if you're needing a phone for internet, there are better options. If you're a heavy texter, the keyboard setup takes a while to get used to.
Excerpt: The battery life is HORRIBLE. Two months ago, started out ok, could get thru the day on a charge. But within the last three weeks, it would only go a couple hours. Take it off the charger and it would still say low battery. Now, after charging all night (and turned off) it will flash low battery and restart itself. Unfortunately, now we have found that poor battery life is not unusual for this phone, and there is no battery upgrade.
