Excerpt: This phone is not even functional. Call quality is like a tin can, the touch pad in front is horrible, it mutes or turns on Bluetooth all the time. This phone is fail all over. The Microsoft kin is a better phone.

Excerpt: After using the Samsung Trance for a few days, i thought it was a good phone. The touch pad took a while to get used to. The battery wasnt the best though and i had to charge it abour 2 times a day. I also loved that it had a 3.5mm headset jack. Also it was a great music phone.

Excerpt: So I had an LG Chocolate 2 for the longest time, until it finally broke. I went over to Verizon to get a replacement. The sales guy kept insisting the Trance would be way better of a phone. I just felt like shutting the dude up, so I ended up with this worthless garbage.
Excerpt: Actually I disagree with the above reviews...I find this to be a simple straight forward phone with a stunning MP3 player...the sound through my Shure S-310 pro earbuds is very, very good! Especially when tweaked...the B&O chip is better sounding than my iPhone 3GS!
Excerpt: PROS: Decent sound. Cool looking handset with gee-whiz sliding design. CONS: Miserable touch screen design; it essentially is TOO sensitive. Cheap feeling; the sliding mechanism doesn't feel solid at all, neither does the bottom half of the phone.
