Excerpt: The U700 is a slim slider phone with a polished mirror finish, directional click wheel and heat sensitive call and end buttons that screams sleek and stylish, but is so poorly implemented that I cannot in good conscience recommend this phone to anyone.
Excerpt: It was December 2007 when I bought Samsung SGH-U700. I bought it mainly because of its stylish looks. Since I only use my cellular phone for calling my friends and sending SMS, I don’t go for additional features when choosing what to buy.
Summary: I had a phone like this that I really liked but I thought the keys that I was texting with seemed to not be responding correctly, so I wanted the same kind of phone I was use to using. I really like that the text message are able to be read aloud. I am happy with how the phone is working. I wish everything had been erased that was already on the phone, texts and bad language, and I had thought it would be in better condition, but overall I am happy with the purchase.
Do not buy a Samsung product. They don't support products and lie to you.

Summary: Quality is bad. Battery lasted 2 days. Had to order a new one, wait 10 days and pay $33. Photo shows #pad to be black, but was shiny silver so can't read. Had purchased another phone just a few months previous and would not link to HF Bluetooth in car. After 2 trips to car dealer and 2 hours on phone with Samsung being jerked around and lied to.......I threw this phone in trash, also.
I'm very pleased with the gleam that I purchased .

Summary: I had owned the gleam phone at the time when it was the lastest model . I purchased this Gleam so to have a basic non -smart phone to use as my business phone. A great lightweight phone with a some quality features, a "so so"camera but a good basic phone!
I bought my Gleam on E-bay. Never had any problems with it.

Summary: The phone is great. The only thing wrong with it, is Verizon. Verizon is always looking for ways to mess with your service and phone. So they can to Force you to buy a new phone and enter into a new contract.

Summary: Purchased phone for my husband. He just wanted a regular phone for emergency use only. The product arrived in perfect condition I was extremely pleased. There is no comparision to his old phone.
Summary: I bought this product because it is just like one I have but I broke and I did not want to upgrade to something newer. This gleam is an easy to use no nonsense quality phone. The one difference is where the phone attaches to the charger. The connection is difficult to use it does not plug in easily. I can live with that.
