This phone is really good. The screen is capacitive, unlike the previous Samsung star, so it's really easy to use. The music player is great, and the phone supports multi-tasking (though it drags the performance down a bit). Perhaps my favorite feature about this phone is the WiFi. For those of you who don't have a data plan, and don't plan on getting one for the future, the WiFi is a really nice touch because it allows you to browse the internet without being forced in a 2-year contract. Most of the phone that have wifi are smartphone, which carriers are requiring a data plan with, but this phone is a feature phone. wifi is a great "feature" on a "dumbphone". The only problem I have with this phone is the annoying QWERTY keypad while texting. The keys are really small, and I frequently press the "back" key instead of the "backspace" key. I'm getting used to it though, and it's also helpful that this phone has a feature that is similar to android's "swype", where you slide your finger across the keyboard to type. the internet browser is good, and the phone supports youtube videos. the quality isn't the greatest for videos that have a lot of action, but for the occasional stand-up comedian video, this phone performs sufficiently. the phone sports a micro sd card slot, so I can load all my music on the card and play it on the phone. I have at&t in the us, and the phone started working immediately after i put the sim card in it. the batter life is above average, but it doesn't blow you away. overall, i'm very happy with this phone.

This phone is very good. It is very light weight, look and feel is very good. I wanted a modern phone with wifi. After reading positive reviews here on Amazon, I ordered the phone and it arrived fast in 3 days. This phone worked perfect for me. All I had to do was just popup in my AT&T SIM card and it worked right out of the box. The wifi feature is great as I don't need a data plan. Internet, email, Google Maps (It is under Games) and youtube applications worked fine after configuring wifi. But I had trouble getting facebook and twitter apps to work. It was displaying message to configure network settings. I posted the issue on a cellphone forum and I received a response which helped in fixing the issue. All you have to do is to create a fake network connection profile by going to Settings -> Connectivity -> Network -> Connections. Just enter some name (no need to enter any other data) and create. Voila, facebook and twitter started to work after this. I love the music player too. I bought 16gb micro SD card to go with this phone to store music, pictures and videos. The camera is nice too. I am so glad I purchased this phone.

Update on May 16th ....
After just six months of use, the battery died. I have ordered for a new battery yesterday . I was having problems with phone getting switched off all of a sudden from past 2 months. From couple of days, the battery was not even holding the charge for few hours (even if I don't use the phone for talking or texting) and now it is completely dead.

I have purchased this phone knowing that all I want to do is make phone calls. I wanted to have a phone that looks modern (touch screen - but not a smartphone)

I have service with T-mobile and all I had to do is pop my sim card into the new phone and everything worked. The call quality is good. For my purposes the phone features are adequate. The screen is responsive and well lit. I like how the phone looks and feels in my hand.

The only negative thing I can say is that from time to time I get a message that there are not enough resources available and I need to shut down my "widgets" and I only have 2 widgets running (my calendar and a buddy list) I do not know what is causing the phone to shut down my widgets. Once I shut them down, after a while they come back on and for the next couple of days there are no problems.

I ordered the Samsung GT-S5260 from BLUTEKUSA. The phone arrived promptly, in its original retail package. The phone came with a European charger, but without any converter for US outlet. Luckily, I happened to have a converter that I was able to use to charge the phone. When I powered it on, everything was in German. I used Google translator (from German to English) to figure out how to navigate through the Settings menu, and was able to change the language to English. Next, I put my T-Mobile SIM card in the phone and powered it back on. But I kept getting the message "Phone Freeze SIM unavailable. Contact your service provider." I tried several other T-Mobile SIM cards as well as an AT&T SIM card. Same result. I got fed up and called BLUETEKUSA Customer Service. They were not very helpful. They claimed that this was a known problem, and was reported frequently by their buyers but it was always because of the buyers' SIM cards. They suggested that I contact T-Mobile to replace my SIM cards (even though I told them that I've tried 3 different T-Mobile SIM cards and 1 AT&T SIM card). I did not believe them, but there was nothing else that I could do. I was ready to ship the phone back for return. But since my daughter desperately needed a phone right away (her old one stopped working), I've decided to take a chance and ordered an unlock code for the phone through one of those web sites. Cost me $30. I provided the IMEI number, phone manufacturer and model, and voila an hour later I got an email that contained the unlock code for my phone (with instructions). The unlock code worked like a charm; I applied the unlock code, and the phone recognized my T-Mobile card right away. So buyers out there, please beware that the phone sold by BLUETEKUSA may not be unlocked as claimed.Read more ›
