By alanhouston TOP 1000 REVIEWER on February 8, 2012
NOTE: The Prevail has been discontinued by Boost Mobile because its tiny internal memory is too small to install standard 2014 apps. It will NOT work properly if you install new apps.

The majority of Prevail owners are happy with their new phone for a few weeks, but after downloading a bunch of new apps and updates for their old apps, find that their Prevail freezes up. The Prevail's Task Manager shows it only has 161 mb of internal memory. The phone needs at least 40 mb of free memory for cache memory. So, select a few essential apps so that you do NOT use more than 120 mb of internal memory for apps. If you do so, your Prevail will always run as smoothly as it did on "Day One".

You can restore your phone to its "Day One" speed and smoothness by formatting your memory card and then doing a "factory restore", as explained in the owner's manual. This process takes ten minutes. It erases all your photos, music, text messages, email, old apps, and anything else clogging up your Prevail's memory. After the restore, reinstall ONLY the apps that you use every day, and be careful to use no more than 120 mb of internal memory. Go to Google Play Store and UNcheck the box for "automatic updates" and do NOT do any manual updates...updates waste memory. The Prevail works best with the original factory versions of key apps.

Boost uses the Sprint Network, which is limited to America's fifty biggest cities, and interstate highways connecting those cities. If you live on a farm in West Texas, or in a village in North Dakota, none of the Sprint companies are a good choice. The staff at the Radio Shack closest to your home are good sources of information about whether the Sprint Network is reliable in your community.

This is the best deal i came across for the price you cant beat it especially with the added case and car charger I ordered it and it came 3 days later I am a VERY HAPPY customer:)

Since some of you people have doubts this phone is BRAND NEW IN ITS ORIGINAL PACKAGE I was skeptical AT first and emailed the seller and THEY did confirm it was all new since it did not say anything about being new...

Purchased 2 of these for my Sister and her Husband. They never had a Android and when they seen mine, they had to have one too. The phone size is like the size of a regular cell phone. Its design is sleek and not to heavy.

Car chargers work just great. Charges in half the time opposed to the home charger, this was a nice bonus.

Case's were regular, phones fit into them perfect. Protects the phones like they should. My sister lets her 3 year old run around throwing the phone. So this was put threw a vigorous test.

Phones set up was a breeze and installing apps. Linking accounts was not a issue. Has basic Android lay out.

I purchased the Samsung Galaxy Prevail for Boost Mobile thinking that I was getting a great deal on an Android smartphone, but I wasn't aware of how severely limited this device would be.

I have no complaint about the service; for the price, Boost Mobile is a great service. The Samsung Galaxy Prevail, however, should not be sold on the market. It's that bad. The cell was advertised as Android 2.2, but little did I know that flash does not work on it. That's right, they purposely disabled flash (one of the biggest advantages of owning an Android over an iPhone).

The phone itself is extremely buggy, and is constantly crashing resulting in a reset of the phone or just a power-off (which is extremely unfortunate when I'm waiting for people to call me and I don't realize my phone has shut itself off).

The phone has very little internal memory, but, considering how little it has, it makes it impossible to use this phone as a smart phone. If you purchase this phone, you will not be able to download more than one or two apps. Period. I used the expansion slot to add 16 Gb of space, but it did me almost no good as most apps need to run off the phone. Apps that would be able to run off the memory stick I cannot download either, as the phone itself does not have enough space to allow download and transfer to the memory stick.

Also, the phone is now experiencing a kind of drive failure that has disabled me from downloading or updating any apps on the phone. I am going to have to buy a new phone at this point.

To summarize, if you are looking for a good smart phone then stay away from the Samsung Galaxy Prevail. If you just need something to work as a phone and don't really care about the smart phone features then stay away from the Samsung Galaxy Prevail. This phone makes Samsung look very bad.

The phone itself isn't bad. It's a little confusing at first, but you'll get the hang of it after messing around with it for a bit. The keypad is extremely hard. You can swipe over the letters, but it is still hard to type long texts. Also, the battery, even in airplane mode doesn't last a full day. I'm charging my phone twice a day with little to no use. I bought a new battery and it didn't make a difference. Also, the phone has little memory. I have downloaded 3 apps and it says my memories almost full. Other than those issues, I like the phone.
