You get a huge assortment of messaging options. Threaded text messaging strings related texts together to preserve the conversational flow. The T9 Predictive Text functionality gets to know your style, so words fill in without typing every letter. When you need to send a common response, choose from pre-set messages, symbols, and emoticons to save tons of time.
With the 1.3-megapixel camera, be ready to capture and share a spontaneous memory. You can even get close-up details with the 4x digital zoom.

Customize your menu icons in a list, or in a grid. A glance at the icon bar monitors signal strength, Bluetooth status, battery life, missed calls, and more. Caller I.D. lets you know who's calling before you answer, and add specific ringtones to select contacts.

Wireless Emergency Alerts (WEA), also known as CMAS, is a part of a national alerting system called IPAWS (Integrated Public Alert and Warning System) that enables emergency management officials to rapidly disseminate the warnings and safety information via text alerts to wireless phones based on the phones’ geographic location. The Federal Emergency Management Agency or FEMA is responsible for receiving the alerting information and forwarding the alerts to participating wireless carriers such as Sprint. Such alerts may come from the President of the United States; the National Weather Service, state or county public safety officials. This system is integrated into the same national alerting services that serve television and radio today.

The screen is very bright and sharp. The sound is good. It has better reception than my Katana had (no complaints). It paired quickly and easily with a bluetooth earpiece. Speakerphone seems fine. I haven't drained the battery: at least several one hour calls don't seem to hardly dent the battery bar. (Rating is for 5 hrs). I gather (but haven't bought and confirmed) that it uses a kind of standard samsung battery, which you can spend anywhere from $5 to $40 for, depending where you shop. [$40 on M370 page at samsung website and called a "AB553446BABSTD".) It has plenty of built in ring tones for my purposes (about 10) - I use one tone for wife & for home, and another tone for anybody else. I couldn't remember more tone variety than that. When you push the "menu" button it gives you 9 squares on the screen which are the 9 accessible functions (e.g. TOOLS).
For the category of plain jane flip phone, I would therefore give it a 5 star except for the several minor gripes mentioned below.
* The touchkeys for texting seem touchy, that is, easy to get wrong letters. (To get "n" on the MNO key you have to push twice, neither too slow NOR too fast! Odd.) But personally I only text two to four words using a flipphone so not a deal killer.
* If you start on bluetooth earpiece the "speakerphone" option becomes a submenu (from Options, 1 to: Options, 1, Options, 2).
* It's several menus down to just see the calendar: I'd rather see it all the time on the home screen, or at least via a hotkey. Also too many menus down to set a quick alarm reminder for myself.Read more ›
1] the included tones are limited and very similar. Plus, if you don't review your messages with in a minute after receiving them and hearing the tone, the phone will emit a loud, shrill beep. There is no way to turn off the shrill beep. Why it's there, I don't know, but it is very annoying. Especially if you are talking on the phone and a text comes in. If you don't acknowledge the text the shrill beep emits. It hurts your ear. The beep can be annoying especially if you forget to answer a text or are too busy. It can be embarrassing.
2] There is a camera built in, which is nice, but unless you have web access on the phone, there is no way to attach the pictures to a message.
3] This phone will NOT send a text to an email address easily. It can be done, but it's a struggle to get it to accept an email address.
4] your screen choices are limited to three. A field, a orange color abstract, or a green abstract.
5] This phone can be used without internet, but it's really limited to the programmed things.
6] The vibe mode is not strong. I usually can't feel it in my jeans pocket. But that's ok...I'll get the shrill beep if I don't reply to the text!
UPDATE: It's been several months since I obtained mine. I hate it. My review is based on what I needed this phone to do for me and my needs. You might like it. But for me, I'll be buying a different phone in about a year.
