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.
I bought my Gleam on E-bay. Never had any problems with it.

The samsung gleam is sleak, and modern, fits right in your hand
9 September 2012
Excerpt: The samsung gleam is sleak. it fits in with most modern wardrobes. i love the easy access MP3 player on the front. The small screen which also allows you to read texts without actually opening up your phone. the buttons are close to the phone which design is nice, but function, sometimes i hit the wrong key while texting b/c they are close together and you cant really feel the difference, the slim deisgn is really nice.
Excerpt: I got a Samsung Gleam about a year and a half ago and its a great little phone. I like the fact that it is compact and slips easily into a pocket or purse (although a few times it has gotten lost in my purse because it is so small). The sound quality is excellent. Another nice thing about it is that it is easy to customize the look and function of it - I change my wallpaper and fonts essentially on a whim and it is very easy. Adding contacts is easy, too.
Excerpt: I have always been a strong minded person and afraidto try out a new cellphone company but almost 2 years I "took the plunge" and bought myself the Samsung U700. It took a few days getting used to with its few touch buttons and different typing but I am happy I bought this item. The Samsung U700 is very thin but don't let that fool you, its a solid piece. It has the latest gadgets and has space for a SD card if you ever run out of space.
I'm probably not upgrading when I renew my contract
9 September 2012
Excerpt: As you can probably tell by my headline, I like the Samsung Gleam so much that I may not even upgrade to a new phone after my two years and I have to renew my contract. It doesn't have the greatest camera in the world, but that's why I also own a camera. I also have an ipod so I don't see the need for phones to be MP3 players as well. The gleam is a sleek and simple flip phone. It doesn't have a full keyboard but it doesn't slow me down with texting.
Excerpt: The Samsung Gleam is a wonderful phone. There are plenty of ways to use it! I would recommend getting an extra memory card for it to load music onto. It has touch-screen style buttons on the front to play music, which I frequently use when disc golfing or grocery shopping. Also helpful for storing pictures and videos. Has the ability to record sounds or songs and send them in text messages to friends and family.
Excerpt: The Samsung Gleam is a very nice, sleek looking phones. The features it include make it even more engaging including the Moving Wallpapers of cars driving either in the city or in the country. The Samsung Geam phone is very easy to use. The phone also has a lot of features that you can customize from the wallpaper, to the menu setup, the font, the brightness, etc. The main complaint I have about this phone is the camera/camcorder.
Excerpt: I like the look and size of this phone but the key pad is too shiny making it difficult to see the numbers while dialing. I wish the time would be displayed on front of phone if powered on for easier viewing
