I was attracted to this phone because I only need a simple device that can send/receive calls and read/write the occasional SMS message, rather than the latest military-grade smartphone technology that can do the dishes, mow the lawn, and perform laser eye surgery all at the same time--crazy, right? This phone meets my needs, but has a few quibbles.

Pros:
-Simple, no-frills functionality
-Inexpensive
-Intuitive usage and interface

Cons:
-Construction & materials perhaps a bit shoddy--feels almost like a toy in your hand
-Uses proprietary Samsung cables for charging and line out, rather than standard interfaces like miniUSB or a 3.5mm headphone jack
-No external volume buttons

Essentially, it works well for basic calling and texting, but enough points are lost in the cons that other devices are worth considering.

**ALSO**

To the reviewers saying that this device does not work in e.g. India, that is because in the technical specifications for this phone you can see that it operates only on 850/1900MHz GSM bands, while access to India's GSM network requires 900 and/or 1800MHz bands. You can see a map of global GSM frequencies at the following address: worldtimezone DOT com SLASH gsm.html

Because this device can only operate on 850 and 1900MHz frequencies, it will only work in the yellow region of the map. Operation in the purple 900/1800MHz regions, including India, requires a device that can access these bands. There is such a version of this device available here on Amazon: Samsung E1080 Unlocked Dual-Band GSM Phone - International Version with Warranty (Black) - NOT for use in the USA

i love this phone because it is simple to operate and it gets a signal almost anywhere. i own a house that is over a hundred years old. made of conrete blocks. my old phone(a samsung) didnt work in the house. i had to go outside in the rain or cold to call my doctor or daughter and thus i didnt spend much time on it and i wasnt using my minutes. my old phone died. i ordered this one. since i dont have much money i chose a cheap phone. and this model has a lot of options for the price. i was amazed it began ringing in my living room. scared my cat actually. now im inside burning up my minutes and this really is a good phone. i think its due to the dual band mode. i live in a small town. rural ohio. i like the tracking feature as well. i am a siezure patient. if i go down my daughter can find me. the phone is slim. still trying to learn how to text......im old...

I've been using this phone for about 4 months now. Initially I just got it as a temporary phone after breaking my beloved SE Walkman and none of the smartphones being offered by my carrier were appealing to me. Anyway, so far my relationship with this phone has been great. I use it mostly for texting and the keypad is made from a very nice rubber-plastic material. There's a nice tactile response when you push the buttons which I feel helps make typing a lot easier. The overall design of the phone is slim and attractive, and many of my friends have called it "cute" due to its small size. I don't know if I can blame the dropped calls on my phone or the carrier but it's not really an issue for me. The earphone/headset that came with this phone are, as expected, of unremarkable quality, don't fit in my ears and the cord is too short but since I hardly use them it's really a non issue.

Overall I'd recommend this if you're looking for a simple phone with a few extra (nice) features like a nice "Bejewelled-like" game which is strangely addictive and alarm capabilities. I also use my phone to keep a few reminders. Since the memory of the phone (for storing reminders) isn't very big, I have to delete old reminders and this (in a way) helps me remember what I was supposed to do. I use the timer when I'm cooking and the convertor almost on a daily basis because I can't understand temperature in Farenheit units.

I was looking for a phone with no frills. This Samsung E1086 is that phone. I had 2 real requirements. Predictive text and no WAP(Mobile Web/internet). Having come from a Samsung A107 flip phone I had high hopes for this model, most of which were met. I will break it down.
PROS:

Size and feel of the phone are good, it is all plastic but feels well built.
Keypad has a good feel to it and is easy to use.
Backlight for keypad and screen is very good.
Display is good for a 30$ unlocked phone.
Speaking of display when the phone is screen locked and you press a button, the screen displays Time, Date, and missed calls and messages. Similar to the outside screen on a flip phone.
FM radio. Very surprised at the quality of reception I get- excellent.
Call quality and volume is good I can hear others well and have had no complaints.
Reception is excellent. I can make calls and send/receive texts in places that I could not with other phones.
Software is easy to navigate, not the most intuitive, but works.
Slide door covering charging port, means no pop off cover to fight with.
Free game, very bejeweled like with a twist.

CONS:
Proprietary headphone jack...
Included earbuds are rubbish.
No "C" key, usually for clearing text or navigating back in menus, or bringing up calenders.
Contrary to the feature listing organizer, the calender does not allow you to schedule events or anniversaries. Or I just cannot find a way to do it. This is my biggest gripe with the phone.
Date format is either YYYY/MM/DD or DD/MM/YYYY no option for MM/DD/YYYY.
Flashlight, or torch as it is called, is a joke. You hold the up key on the D pad and the screen goes white and is set on brightest setting.
