Second time in a little over a year tablet shuts down and will not turn on.
29 August 2014
Summary: The first time this happened it was just under 1 year old, now 15 months old it is shut down again. It is not the battery as it was fully charged when I was using it and had to leave it for a few minutes. When I returned screen was black and will not turn on after holding the power button and voice button down at the same time as well as all the other so called fixes on the internet. Will not buy another.
Pros: When it works it is great, quick response, takes great pics., etc.
Cons: Shuts down and won't turn on. Have to bring it in for repairs again.
Summary: I purchased this tablet from wireless everything in June of 2013 and was told it was a new tablet but apparently not because I never received a instruction manual!!! I inquired about it to Wireless Everything and Amazon but never got a straight answer! RED FLAG!!! Now I know! I really love my Samsung tablet but it went out June 29 yesterday. If it was a new tablet it would not have gone out so fast! They were not honest with me.
Summary: The Galaxy Tab 2 (refurb) was in absolutely horrible condition. The unit booted up and seems to run well, but, the rear cover is dented/damaged and the unit has several areas of dead pixels. This unit wasn't refurbished, it was factory reset and packaged to sell. On top of that, it shipped without a proper charger. The Galaxy Tab 2 uses a proprietary charger, not a micro USB... which is what it shipped with. Ridiculous.
Summary: DONT BUY THIS PRODUCT...its very risky specially thru amazon and its sellers !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! after 3 months this international version stopped working...i called to samsung USA and AMAZON but both are not helping with any solution....its obviously a manufacturer problem but seems either of them is gonna give me a solution for this. So...i have a useless GT P5100 at home...$420 thrown away!!!
Summary: First and formost the shipment arrived with one seal broken. Took the unit to two AT&Ts kios at San Dimas, no success, then to Arcadia, Ca. for a prepaid it's wi Fi hot spot. It took the tech 3 days to figured out to work. The unit is always slow to response for open any app.Sometime not response at all. I have IPad mini cellular before and extremely smooth to use and connect to the Hotspot. Now I am regret that to returned it because the rave reviews of Samsung tablet..
Summary: Even though this is a very nice gadget, beware of warranties. And beware of the word "International". My Tablet has a problem, as when it Boots, and after it gives the Samsung welcome jingle and graphics, it then freezes right on the Samsung Logo. The seller was Wireless Everything, from N.Y., fulfilled by Amazon.com. I contact them, and they say I must contact Samsung U.S. When I call Samsung America they say that the product is registered in the U.K.
Summary: I purchased a Samsung international version from this company and three days later the whole tablet went off. I returned it for a new one and the new that was sent to me was an open box, I called them and returned again.
