1.0 out of 5 stars Terrible Phone - Do not waste your money! February 1, 2012
Bought this phone for my wife who wanted a "simple phone", primarilly for calls and some texting. Well after 45 days of frustration, I'm buying her another phone to replace this crappy one.

This phone has multiple problems which make it a real headache to use:
1. Can't answer easilly - screen lock & touch screen issues prevent from answering quickly. Most calls go to voice mail before you can answer!

2. Phone has too many levels and keys required to enter "texting mode". It is way too complex to send a simple message. As a result, my wife doesn't even use the texting capabilities we bought it for!

3. Phone "pocket dials" frequently, even when "locked"!

Overall, a waste of time and money. I can't believe that Samsung didn't do a better job of testing this phone before putting it on the market!

1.0 out of 5 stars Absolute Frustration... May 8, 2012
I am one of those people who rarely writes reviews, but I often read them. However, for this phone, I felt compelled to warn others off from making the same mistake I made: picking this phone.

We bought four of these phones; one for my dad, mom, husband and myself. All of them have these issues. It's not just that I received a bad phone out of the batch.
I don't expect electronic devices to work perfectly. There are ALWAYS glitches, and for the most part I can get past them. This phone however, which is advertised as a messaging phone, fails at messaging. The one thing it is meant to do well, it can't.

-Within the messaging menu, where the folders of contacts I have been messaging are located, when I click on Contact A, I am shown within the folder that it is, in fact, Contact B. Why? Couldn't tell you. I went back to the Sprint store, had them completely reset the phone to factory settings and reload my contacts, thinking something went array the first time. Alas, no. Same issue, different contacts mixed up. This happens with both mine and my husband's phone.

-Do you often text more than one person at a time? Well, not with this phone. Otherwise, you'll be sending messages to the wrong people. When I showed this to the Sprint store support employee, she just stared at the phone, shaking her head. Which, I can't blame her. Made absolutely no sense to me either. This happens with all four phones.

Small glitches (or too easily made user errors...) that can be extremely annoying when accumulated:

-It's easy to pocket dial. There is a lock button on the top, but until I had pointed that out to my parents (on day 1, about 10 hours into having the phone) I had been accidentally called 7 times in total between the two of them.

5.0 out of 5 stars I don't see the problems... August 12, 2013
I've had this phone for three years and I haven't had any of the problems that the other reviewers have had. The touch screen on this isn't as sensitive as other devices that I've had, which I like and the touch screen locks during phone calls so you don't hang up on someone while you're talking. You can exit the lock screen mode by sliding in and out the keyboard then, it's easy to slide the end call bar and return to phone to the main screen. I love the big buttons on the slide out keyboard! They are the perfect size for anyone with big fingers or poor eyesight. Over all, I haven't have any problems with this phone and I would recommend it to a friend.

All I wanted was a basic phone--no frills. What I got a chunk of electronic schizophrenia--that may or may not make or receive a phone call. I should have junked it after a week, but I figured I'd master it after a while and it would be fine. Wrong, wrong, wrong.

Turned out it wasn't me. There are not only lots of glitches, they proliferate and migrate. Functions that work today may not work tomorrow. Sometimes the immobilized "end call" slider bar can be unstuck by opening the mini keyboard, sometimes not. Today the phone may refuse to ring for an incoming call, tomorrow it may ring, but refuse to let me answer it. Yesterday it would insistently redial the number I just hung up when I pressed "done"; today the keypad goes dead when I try to delete voice mail. Last week it consolidated my record of incoming and outgoing calls into a single list permanently dated "today".

Adjusting the touch sensitivity (1-5) has zero effect--at least that's consistent. A fly landing on my phone will trigger a speed dial call, and only a swift finger flick will scroll down the contacts list--usually all the way to "Z". Finding a contact in mid-alphabet is like playing a tiny slot machine, since a slower flick will usually dial the first number touched. I sure wish I'd read the consumer reviews before I bought this shriveled lemon.

BTW: no grudge against Samsung generally. My wife's Galaxy S II is comparative joy to use.
