I had the old flip phone, didn't want to upgrade, but this phone made it easy to change over and actually fun. I am enjoying the options and I don't even have a data plan. It was nice that I can arrange the icons to what I use.

I needed a basic phone and I thought this one would be the answer. I would have given a four-star review because I only used the phone to make and receive calls. It worked well UNTIL my Ford Edge computer was updated. The phone no longer syncs with the car OR to be honest it does sync with the car but that's all it does. I can no longer use the blue tooth, navigation system, find a business, or any of the other features offered by the "sync my ride" Ford computer. After taking my car to the dealer for a week thinking it was a car issue, it came back as a phone issue. I emailed Samsung and got an answer that SHOULD have fixed my problem. The phone still won't sync. Samsung wants me to send my phone to them and if they can't fix it, oh well, too bad. I tried to get a replacement but not the same basic phone for "good will" but no. So, if I want to use my car's programs I will have to get a new phone if Samsung can't get the phone to work. Thank you very much Samsung -- great customer relations!

wonderful phone.I just got the Samsung Bright-side and i love it.With it being a touchscreen and it opens gives me the best of both worlds. I have heard of people having troubles with banners and online backups, my advice would be to get rid of your internet and block it.If you dont use it and dont want the banners then, without the internet you wont have the problems.Without the internet the phone runs quickly and smoothly.If you have problems with your battery( i have not had troubles ) turn off your vibrate it saves the battery! While this phone doesn't have an actual Background for your home screen, your screen savor is your picture that you choose. I went in to upgrade for it and i went to radioshack and i only had to pay 50$ while i have heard other people paying up to 115 for an upgrade.I did have a smartphone but wanted to downgrade because i already have internet and dont use my phone for that but wanted a phone that has similar features and can get internet if i ever changed my mind.I have seen some bad reviews for this phone but mostly it comes from people who do not know how to run their phone or went into this phone for the wrong reason. All bad reviews aside this gets a 5 star from me for a wonderful basic phone for all of those who want a nice phone without internet.It isn't as fast as a smart phone but without the internet it is still unbelievably fast. If you want a smart phone get a smart phone, this isn't one but damn if it isn't as close as it can be to one while saving the internet bill and giving you good features. I got it on 4/21/13.

Pros: Cheap,Quick, Easy access to most features,Touchscreen and slide open, doesn't need internet but can if you want, durable, can have memory card, good camera, if you have internet it can go between devices.Wonderful phone!

Cons: main screen has to be the quick clicks( but can be arranged and changed), pictures load slow but you get used to it, not as fast as a smart phone.

I don't know what other reviews are saying about the SD card reader not working properly, or any other problems with the phone. I've had the phone for 2 years, and it's still operating as good as new! This phone has a great touch screen, great call quality, and great interface. It has a nice slide out QWERTY keyboard, and the buttons work flawlessly.

I had this phone for over a year and Since I just wrote a long and scathing review on the Verizon site I'm not sure I can remember it all- 10 things are wrong with it: 1.menu options suck - list or grid; orange or green. 2. memory card doesn't read well in that it keeps saying it's full when it isn't 3. turns off on it's own (same with intensity II but 8 months earlier with this phone) 4.ringtone is not capable of being bluetoothed or put on SD card; one has to RECORD it with the voice recorder into "sounds to MAYBE get it to work! 5. Alarm NEVER worked. 6. Calendar NEVER worked. 7. The messages DESPITE showing up in bubble format when I first got the phone - turned into an order received system instead of conversation based system so it was difficult to keep track of conversations.8. Received pictures have a white frame around them making them hard to see since they don't take up the full screen! 9. Apps weren't usable except Tetris. 10.The few times I wanted/ needed to use the internet it was completely useless because the touchscreen sucked 11. RANDOMLY HANGS UP ON PEOPLE IF YOU PICK UP THE CALL THEN UNPLUG IT

This was a HORRID phone - like only second to the Samsung Reclaim I had with sprint which I happily saw runned over by a car (even though it wasn't intended!) I am happy back with my Intensity II for now (although I miss my memory SD card and still hate the turning off thing) and I doubt me or my husband will be getting another Samsung since his Marauder hasn't fared much better in the 6 months we've had it!

This phone has very touchy buttons or a mind of its own, or both!
-Very easy to turn on ringtone, even if you've chosen "no ringtone"
-I'll unlock the phone and it will be on random pages that I've never seen. Even if the phone has been sitting on the desk.
-In silent mode, the phone will still make noises to tell you it's running out of battery.
-The interface sucks at every step. I just tried to add a mobile number to a contact, and it took me 5 full minutes to figure out that you have to tap on the phone number to get it to save the info. This, after pressing save (which apparently does nothing).
-It's very difficult to answer calls without hanging up. Half the time, the phone doesn't let me know someone's calling anyway.

I really wish I had picked a different phone. STAY AWAY from this one!!!

Great phone ... No problems ... Read other reviews that explain bypass of problems others reporting. Hard to find good touch phones.

I have had the phone for about a month now, and it has been wonderful for me! My only minor complains is that sometimes (it has happened for me once or twice) it will randomly turn itself off on the lock screen. My only other complaint is the low battery sound is completely loud, even when the phone is on silent. It also still makes the low battery beep after the phone has shut off because of low battery. I had mine with me in school and the only way I could get it to shut up was to take the battery out. I had a LG Octane before this phone, and they are very comparible in quality!

PRO (yes, I said pro, it's only got one):
Touch screen is not just pressure sensitive but also static. (So doesn't just unlock screen while in purses, but still can if in your pocket at times, but not as easily as just pressure screens, like the LG cosmos touch I previously used)
CONS:
Cannot personalize as much as other phones.
Slide out keyboard is tough to open and end up dropping it more often than opening it. Would not recommend for heavy texters as its really annoying to drop your phone every time you try to open it to text.
Really odd width to height/depth ratio. Makes it harder to hold on to firmly (at least for people with kinda small hands).
Very slippery surface around back and sides of phone, also makes it hard to grip, and just end up dropping more easily.
Touch screen has unnecessary menus at the bottom which get bumped all the time and makes phone make unwanted calls.
The way it's programmed while texting someone if you receive a text while in process of typing, phone automatically opens the received message and saves yours as a draft (and sometimes not and you have to start over.)
Ringtones are the worst to choose from that I've ever heard, very few also compared to other phones out there.

I haven't even had this phone for a week and I absolutely hate it. It feels like its a cheaply made piece of crap. I text a lot and the slide keyboard is rather difficult to open as it is too thin and slippery to hold on to, so I drop it all the time. Also hard to hold on to because of it's dimensions, its really wide for it's length and depth which also is part of why its harder to open the slide keyboard. It's just very oddly shaped and I don't like it especially for this reason. I don't really like the touch screen, you cannot calibrate it yourself so sometimes its picky about what exactly you're pressing but I do like the fact that the touch screen is not just pressure but also static, so generally it doesn't just get bumped unlocked if it's in a purse/bag, but will if it's in your pocket. I don't like the fact that you cannot put a picture of your own for the wallpaper except on the lock screen. Yeah, that's great, I can see my beautiful dog's picture for about half a second every time I have to UNLOCK my phone and then I have to see its ugly menu screen. Once the screen is unlocked it is the menu options that you see, just like in the picture here you cannot change this to a wallpaper. You only get a choice of 2 colors for it green or orange. I don't particularly like either of the colors they provided. I don't like how there is a menu that takes up the whole unlocked screen and I cannot have a background picture there and only when the screen is locked I can see it. Personalization is important to me in a phone and this does just not do it for me. Also, because there is automatically a menu screen pulled up when unlocked it makes it really easy to press things while it's in your pocket or something. The touch screen menus at the bottom you cannot change and they are really not necessary: "voicemail," "recent," "keypad," and, "contacts". They are unnecessary (except for keypad) because you have the menu screen already on the entire front of the phone which already has "contacts," most people hit the "send" button on the phone to view their recent calls. Most people don't need to check their voicemail unless they get a missed call and when that is the case it notifies you of the missed call and asks if you want to dial voice mail and the notification stays until you do it anyway. But because this option is there, it is pressed all the time when it just accidentally unlocked and my phone seems like it is constantly calling my voicemail or my recent calls, or opening my contacts to call a new one. I hate the way it's programmed while texting someone if you receive a text while in process of typing, phone automatically opens the received message and saves yours as a draft, or sometimes not and you have to start over, but then the draft will appear in the draft folder a few minutes or hours later after you don't need it and started over already. It's very frustrating. Oh, and the ringtones to choose from on the phone are not good at all.

I absolutely hate this phone and would never recommend it to anyone. But my sister does seem to like it better than the LG cosmos touch we last had, but I do not at all though, I am switching back to my old one as soon as possible!
