Avoid this phone
retepwal has owned it for more than one year before publishing this review
I bought this phone because it was the only touch screen pay-as-you-go option I had. I really dislike this phone.
There are some annoying problems: the phone drops more calls than it gets. It doesn't vibrate enough for me to feel it in my pocket. The QWERTY keyboard requires you to have fingernails to use it. The touch screen isn't very accurate. The phone's speaker isn't loud enough.
The most annoying feature has to be the lack of a usable lock. If you lock the phone and put it in your pocket, the slightest shift of the keyboard drawer will disengage the lock, allowing you to pocket dial. I've even ended up editing contacts from my pocket.
I've never used the internet plan, so I really can't comment on it, but I can't find a way to take the media (like pics off the phone) and do anything with them.

I bought this phone in Feb. 2010, for a couple of months it seemed working fine, except few issues like calling the numbers from recently dialed numbers again and again, getting unlocked itself etc.. But after one year there are vary major problems in this phone. Sometimes its key stops working, it restarts automatically even during a call and many other issues. So my suggestion would be never buy this phone.

i love this phone,it's GERAT. I never had problems with it. My internet is very fast, keyboard is very handy and great for someone who likes to txt, i like FM radio ,Playlist, and other features. When i put music volume to maximum it's very loud and i really like that ! :D I hear all voices clear, and i think camera is OK,could be little better. I like it,it's best phone i had so far,it's great for trips,u can listen music very very long and take pictures and battery will last 3 days... But when i don't use it too much it can last 5-7 days,and i have it almost for a year :D I will reccomend this phone ! :)

piece of shit
Victoria has owned it for less than year before publishing this review
Got this phone for my b-day lastyear and overall it's been really good . I dropped the phone a few times and I dropped it yesterday and it was fine it was still on and nothing happened to it but my battery was low and it turned off in a few minutes so i charged it and you know when your phone is off and you plug it in it says charging and a pic of a battery shows up? And you can turn it on with the left button? Mine didn't work and tried taking the battery out and putting it back in to turn it on unfortunately it still doesn't work but the screen still works when i plug the charger in this is just too weird what am I supposed to do and don't give me answers like go to the shop you got it to get it fixed!!!!!

Lauren has owned it for more than one year before publishing this review
i've had this phone for a year or so.. it was fantastic for a while but lately whenever i open or shut the keyboard, the screen goes completely white, sometimes for hours on end. i havent seen any other complaints of this happening though... is it just my phone?

This phone isn THAT bad!
The touch screen isnt that bad, sometimes you will press something and it wont register untill a few seconds later, and then you end up getting lost on it, and have to start over! But its very good, appart from if you want to type with the screen and not use the qwerty keyboard. Then your fingers keep pressing the delete button rather than the space button, but you have a qwerty keyboard so!
The qwerty keyboard is really handy, you can just slide it out and text away! but it is kinda small and cramped, and if you have big fingers, the you might want to look into a different phone. On the keyboard it is very easy to type long messages with ease, just like you would on a computer, only more compact.
The camera isnt the best of quality. The quality could be far better, but its only 2.0 mega pixels, but its fine to snap those moments when youve got no camera, but i would definatley not substitute your camera for the one on this samsung.
I think the internet on this phone is very poor. I wouldnt even recomend this phone for quick browsing, its really slow and leaves you waiting.
The one think i really dislike on this phone is the locking device, its meant to lock the touch screen, and is meant to be unlocked by either pressing the lock button on the side and holding it down, or pressing the button on the screen. But once its in your pocket, it unlocks itself and then ends up pressing buttons without you knowing.
phones perfect for a textaholic! enjoy!

Do not get this phone.
Annoyed Customer has owned it for less than month before publishing this review
Well I had this phone for about a week and am just not very happy with it. There are two major downfalls. The first of which is the locking system. You can lock the phone so the touch doesn't come on but to unlock it you can either hold in a button on the side of the phone or touch a button on the screen... If you have it in your pocket your phone will constantly become unlocked and buttons will be being pushed as you walk around. This results in you calling people or doing whatever plus it drains the battery like crazy since the backlight is coming on.
Next the vibration is too weak. I like to keep my phone on vibrate at work, if I keep it in my pocket with the vibrate turned up to full I can't feel it when I receive a text message. If I put on my DESK in front me I still miss it and my office is not that noisy. I did a little research and found this is not uncommon.
The keyboard is a bit tiny but it's still useable. I like the look of the phone, some of the software is useful. The "widgets" are ok although some of them are pretty useless. Overall I suggest you avoid buying this phone, I am most likely going to try to return this one as I very much dislike it. DO NOT BUY IT!!!!!

I love this phone!! i got it a few months ago now and have only good things to ay about it. the qwerty keypad is a little soft and it takes a little while to get used to, but once you are used to it, its quite nice and easy to use. the touch screen is sensitive, the design is nice. the camera is pretty basic, but thats to be expected from a 2mp camera, but still sharp enough. the camera also comes with a lot of cool features, such as frames, mosaic shot, camera effecs such as sepia, black and white, negative, sketch, and view finder mode. it also takes an ok video, not too bad. it has useful widgets and shortcuts, such as composing a new message, or going to your speed dial. the music player and FM radio are also a plus, both very clear and crisp. i have no problem getting on the internet the only downside i found was that its a little slow, and no wi-fi. there are also other useful applications, such as a stop watch, timer, bluetooth, voice recorder, world clock, converter, and a lot more. as for the battery life, its pretty good. mine lasts for 2 days on one charge, no matter how much i text, however, it does shorten a lot if you use the internet or make calls. keep in mind that this phone was created for youth, and it is not a phone i would reccomend for business. the design is basic, and the layout makes it so much less confusing. also, answering a question commonly asked, im pretty sure you cant change the pictures in the slideshow when the phone is locked. also, they...

Really like it.
I've had this phone for a little while now, and I really like it. The hybrid touch screen and qwerty keyboard are great and easy to use. The keyboard also isn't loud which is nice. Only problem I really had was when I tried to make a call to an automated number which wanted me to type in numbers from the keypad to get what I needed, which was difficult with the touch screen. Also, the instruction manual wasn't particularly detailed, so it took a bit of playing around to figure out all the functions. Overall, good phone for a low price.

Its ok, but not impressed
Im having a hard time getting this phone hooked up to my computer... Unlocks and calls people on my recent call list, and phone book while in my pocked. I have to delete my recent call list everytime i use it or it will call that person all day... I rely on that instead of going through my phonebook everytime to find the number i want to call. Havent been able to set up email... keep getting error messages. Camera is poor quality and no flash. I liked my old cheap razor better.

It looks good but missing a lot of things!
this phone doesn't come with a new sim card, a memory card and a stylus. the battery is a total piece of crap! it says it's full and the next minute it turns off automatically saying low battery.this phone only looks good and has some good features but that's pretty much it
