Good cheap Alltel phone
I picked this up a few weeks ago when I renewed my Alltel contract because I wanted a smaller phone and didn't need the extra features the Samsung Wafer. The signal strength is comparable to my old Nokia phone and has adequate coverage in all the areas in Nebraska I have so far used it in. The interface is generally good, only criticism here is the position of the back button. It's hard to press it without also pressing the 2 key. The menus are logical and easy to use.
In my experience thus far the battery life is nowhere close to the advertised duration. Standby time is closer to four days, not twelve days and talk time is more like two hours, not three. The discrepancy here is so large that I really wonder how Samsung tested this. I also don't like the charging interface. There is a little flap that you have to swing out to plug in the charger and I'm certain that is going to break before I'm done with my two year contract.
Other than the battery life and back button, I find no major faults with the phone and it's a great deal for the price. The small size and low cost ultimately offsets the negatives if you just want a simple phone.
