I have had this phone for a very long time, probably 3 years already it it has served me well. The reason I am writing a review is to clarify somethings that other people have said. First, you cannot compare this phone with a more advanced phone; it's only a flip phone, nothing else. This phone is really for people who only use it to call or text and the other things like the alarm which I used so the camera doesn't need to be superb and the screen resolution doesn't need to be clear either.

People have stated that this phone is flimsy but I can tell you, my phone has survived a great deal like drops but it's still intact. Some have said that the volume isn't very good but for me, it's loud enough, sometimes even too loud, then again, I'm not one of those people who blasts their music on their earphones.

Sometimes it does display low or no bars, but I have never dropped a call. I do wish that this phone was able to set the alarm to vibrate rather than just music so you won't disturb others when it goes off.

Overall, it's a good phone to keep around if you aren't into smartphones or texting because it provides the basics pretty well. The front screen displays the time which I use all the time. The battery lasts a long time, a week for me, if you don't use it too much for calling. It's a good little phone, great for a child who's given their first or second phone. Usually I don't write reviews but some comments I read were contrasting to my experience so I wanted to bring it up front.

I got this phone for 4 bucks from Tmobile when they ran the special that comes with a free $[...] gift card. $[...] total). Obviously I have no complaints about the price. It's an ok phone. Nice size buttons and they are raised so you don't have to use your finger nail to punch in a number. Fairly decent display but only 3 or 4 wallpapers which are not so hot. Sound could be better but I'm still testing. Sound is the most important thing to me. But, since it has a camera, I began taking lots of pictures. Then I bought a data cable to transfer them all over to the PC. Turns out, this phone does not support data cable transfer even though Tmobile and Samsung and a bazillion merchants on the internet sell a data cable for this phone. Pretty crappy arrangement for a camera phone (not to mention costly). Without data transfer, it costs you 25 cents per picture to email it to yourself in order to get it on your computer. Just so you know the score and don't spend days (as I did) trying to get this matter straightened out with the seller, Tmobile and Samsung. The data cable that they sell for this model only functions as a charger, not data transfer.

Verified Purchase
Before I bought the phone, I read a lot of the reviews. I got mixed feelings because sometimes you just never know, and reviews are the only way to really get a feel for something you buy online. Well, I was kind of reluctant to buy this phone because I have a T-Mobile Plan and this said "Pre-paid" so I was little concerned that it wouldn't work with a T-Mobile contract plan. Not one of the reviews really clarified it for me if I could use a Sims Card with an already-contract. I was buying it for my grandmother who needed an easy to use flip phone... something she could flip open to answer and flip close to end a call. This phone seemed perfect so I decided to buy the phone anyway and give it a try and to my surprise, it does work with a Sims card for a contract and not just a pre-paid one. However, T-Mobile has changed their Sims cards to be smaller now, so if you do buy the phone, you will need to go in and get the "old style" Sims card for this phone to work.
The phone was received before the delivery date and in perfect condition! (No real wear and tear or scratches.) The charger and battery were in the packing with the phone, so there is no need to order a separate battery or charger. The phone works just fine and holds a charge and is very nice for the price I paid.

I would gladly buy this phone again and I bought the phone from the seller: recellulartoo. I would greatly recommend this seller!

-Cheap-got at BB on sale for 20
-Good size keys for texting
-Small, lightweight
-Can sync contacts from T-mobile site

-Old school graphics, fuzzy, and colors not bright
-Can't connect to your PC (when will Samsung get it and start using USB connection?)
-Camera is only 640x480.

The biggest drawback of this phone is that you have to "send" any pictures you take because there is no ability to connect to your computer. The phone advertises bluetooth but it is useless, except for using a headset but I don't use one...other reviewers have mentioned problems in general with the bluetooth. Texting options are limited and inconvenient for symbols, caps, etc. but I don't text much myself so that isn't a problem for me. Reviewers have complained about the phonebook not being easily accessible but all you have to do is push on the "down" part of the circular function area and it comes right up. The "up" button brings up your call records so you can quickly call any entry there. Only two steps to send a text the center OK button and then "send message", couldn't be easier so I don't know why people are complaining that you have to go through multiple steps to get to these basic functions (some Cnet reviews). Even though the buttons aren't customizable, what else would you want to use these for other than phonebook and sending a text msg? Anyway, all in all for the price I paid, I'm happy with it.
