Summary: I HATE this phone. Maybe its just the particular phone I bought but it is all kinds of glitchy. I bought it because it was advertised at a decent price on Ebay. My total cost for the unit was $22.50. I was excited about getting such a good deal until I actually received the phone. When I got it I noticed that all I had to do to turn it on was brush my finger ever so gently across the power button which is an issue because it powers off ust as easily and with this same...
Summary: I did write to the seller of this item b/c the reason I bought this item was to replace the same one I bought less than 2 months prior. Nothing but problems. Conicidentally, we were trying to correct the problem with SamSung tech when the phone face shattered. I paid avout $60 for the 1st one and $90 for the 2nd one. When I called SamSung about the replacement of the face, they said $159.
Summary: This phone was a gift and sadly almost one year with the phone and is flashing like it is charging and even when it isn't . I am very upset to leave this phone but, I will stay with the company and get a phone that will be waterproof or with a keyboard but diff a smart phone. I went to buy 2 battries thinking it was that and it wasn't, is something that is going cost me the same as a new phone , for this black friday, getting myself a new phone and hope this is the ONE...

Summary: I finally decided to make the switch to a smartphone after my six-year-old POS candy bar Motorola died. Since I was sticking with Boost, that meant I had only a few options and picked the Samsung Transform Ultra, the fanciest model available. PROS I don't like touch screen typing and had to have a full size slide-out QWERTY keyboard. The Ultra has a fantastic one, sturdy and responsive. In fact, it's the primary reason I picked it. No regrets there.
Summary: At first I liked the phone. It was nothing special but after less than three months of having this phone it shuts off by itself; in the middle of a conversation and even when you open the slide out keyboard, it does it even when the battery is fully charged.
Summary: This phone is really cheap in quality. It hangs up often and the system is slow to pick up and hang up calls. Will randomly mute a call even if the screen is locked. Apps take forever to load when on the 3g network but the browser does fairly well on the 3g. Overall I would not recommend this phone at all. ZTW Warp is much better.
Summary: As others have stated, the Transform Ultra does indeed have touchscreen issues. It may be luck of the draw, but I had the Prevail prior and there were no issues like this. I have tried sensitivity apps to try and correct the issue, but it did not help. As IMFM stated in another forum, he thinks it is a capacitive issue regarding the ability of the device to recognize when the finger is lifted, or more aptly, the device thinks you lifted your finger.
