No Go on the Samsung Messenger II

BellaDonna, Phone Scoop

  • Excerpt: I bought this phone about a year ago with MetroPCS as it seemed a decent phone/price for what it offers; It offers email and Messaging for MSN and AOL, and web browsing with MySpace but the web browsing is very slow and loses the network often. MP3 functions work very well and offers a library and playlist options. Regular phone features are good including quality of sound.

Samsung Did It Again

  • Excerpt: I honestly dont have much to say about this phone except its a very good phone on the Cricket network. I mean the first messager was amazing for what it was and this phone just makes you feel like samsung knew exactly what the sequel needed. The only complaint I honestly have about this phone which is why I gave it a 4 out of 5 was the circular directional pad that spins. I know alot of people loved it and thought it was innovative.

  • Excerpt: I have had this phone for 2 weeks and really like it. Pros -sound is clear and signal is good -really good QWERTY keypad, really big and spaced out nicely -front keypad is ok, the buttons could have been bigger but its decent -display is bright and the screen is big enough for me -d-pad works great and can even spin so you can scroll -3.5mm headphone jack, thank god they didn't use a 2.5 -2.0 megapixel camera, decent quality -widgets!

It SUCKS!!!!!

  • Excerpt: Was on Metro PCS before switching to Verizon because of coverage. Owned this phone. I went through 4 or 5 of them. Exchanged and finally returned this phone because EVERY ONE I had would FREEZE UP and REBOOT at least once a day. I thought it was a bad batch, but it turns out to maybe be the software issue. I will not buy again unless the software is updated.

  • Excerpt: I have been on Cricket for several years now and truthfully this is the best phone by far. I had the original messager and I loved it but this phone is just better in my opinion. PROS: Sound clarity is great, good volume, speaker phone is awesome, I love the 2MP camera. The keys are easy to use and move over. I really like that the center jog button you can either press or turn.

  • Excerpt: first of all i can say after buying the first messanger this one is alot better they changed the way to receive emails which is a plus for me. when im on the road the battery life is ok the one thing they should of worked on is the internet its too slow on loading the web pages. but i can say that metro pcs is haveing some pretty cool handsets if you love to text like me then i would advise you to pick up a messanger 2 you will love it.
