looks like a phone for the kids... so make sure you behave so your parent(s) can get you one!

i really hate comments like this like im 13 but i have a sidekick which is one of the more complicated phones i dont care if you believe it or not. and i can also work blackberrys. and other kids these days dont even want phones like this they want smartphones, touchscreens and other things like that. and kids use phones more than adults so smartphones should be aimed toward kids and dumphones to adults

Yeah well I work for att and constantly get teenage kids calling in that cant even work the stupid blackberry their parents bought them. The only reason they want touchscreens and smartphones is so they can look cool. I'm only 18 and ive worked for att for 15 months and hate talking to teenagers.

yeah... smartphones are AIMED towards kids!!! are you real. lil'man, smartphones have the higher $tag because you can afford it, right?! and the data plan. you plan on paying for the phone with your allowance? please. i'm done with you.

The phone in this article looks pretty cool I would get that. It looks decent and Samsung is always a reliable brand. For me anyways.

haha volve i have tmobile to. but when my contract is up i want a iphone or env touch idk yet :)

and thats why i wouldnt get the iphone. its a good phone, but its more of a status thing... like what kind of car do you drive (you young-un will find out, soon)... guess as long as the divice serves its function its good. i have 1.5yr old son, & i think hes eyeing the iphone too!! :-P

I'm 14, and I don't have a smartphone. I don't even have a full QWERTY keyboard phone. I don't think kids really need smartphones. Who (as in teenagers) uses emails anymore, besides to sign up for things? (Obviously, some do, but most don't anymore.) I'd love to have this phone :) but Samsung's lower end phones usually only have proprietary charger and accessory ports.

I'm 14 years old, and I disagree with you.. I think 12-16 year old teenagers should have smartphones. I mean, why not? It's not that their parent's are spending their money on them to make them seem 'cooler'. It's because they want to. My frist phone was a smartphone. And I've have nine different ones since then. It's not like people like me more because I have a smart phone, nor' does it make me any 'cooler'. It's just to have, its convienence, and because it's nice to own. Right now I own a T-Mobile G1, and I love it. My parents bought me it because they wanted to. Not because I begged and begged, or a special occasion. Just to make me happy. I got mad because you said teenagers shouldn't have smartphones, well they should. More teenagers own smartphones than adults. My dad has a blackberry because of his job, and my mom couldn't work a phone if her life depended in it. I don't even know what her phones called, but it's not a smartphone. Now that that's over with, I think this phone is a rip-off of the Samsung Alias & somewhat of a Sidekick. But, it looks pretty crappy.

man I can't stand kids like you, I didn't get my first phone still I was in 8th grade, and it wasn't something fancy, it was a prepay, and I got 20$ for 3 months, it was for emergency's. it was also a test to see if I could listen and do what my mom wanted me to with the phone, and not go over my limit, and be responsible. I had to do that for 2 years. then when I turned 16 I got to pick a plan and got my own phone. smart phones were around but I didn't really need Internet I had better things to do. but I had a basic phone the original razr, and the myfaves 300 plan. I have had that till this day and I'm 20 almost 21. I still have that razr and just got texting last month. my phone is broken really bad, but my mom won't buy me a new phone or renew my contract, I have to use my own money, so as a struggling collage student over the last year I've gotten together money to get a new phone. try doing that. I think kids that are given everything are spoiled, not saying you are, but my little sis was given a phone with everything on it everything she wanted but no text, she racked up a 2000$ bill in the first month. she's 14. she never went thru what I did.
