Rated 5 out of 5Â by Gr8ValueHunter Great Phone (especially for the money)
This is the most reliable phone I ever had (and I have been using it for about a year). All of the built in features (including wifi, texting, email and some downloadable apps) work smoothly. The internal browser works pretty well, but I would recommend downloading the Opera Mini 8 browser for java-based mobile phones, as well as Google Maps (2.3.2). Battery life is very good (markedly better than smartphones), though I would classify this as an apps phone which functions like a smartphone in many ways. But I can't recommend this for anyone who absolutely needs the full functionality of a smartphone.(One shortcoming is that it does not have nearly as many available apps as a smartphone-- as well as a rather small viewing screen, among other things). But it is excellent for what it is.

The Samsung Cell Phone is very easy to use with it's keyboard and other features too numerous to mention. It's great for seniors or anyone else.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by joshincincy Great Phone for the Price - one issue...
I've had this phone for about 1.5 years now, and it operates the same as always. I have an iPad and I don't care about having a smart phone still, so the features on this are fine. I just use it to call, and the alarm works well always (and it's easy to set up).
My only issue is that the lock feature always fails. In my pocket, the phone unlocks, and then for whatever reason it dials the emergency number. This happens generally at least 1-2 times a week.
Overall, the phone operates well excluding that issue, and given the price I'm satisfied.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Ihavenonickname This phone is great for what it is.
This phone is a slightly more than a basic phone. It has survived being dropped from 10 feet onto asphalt, being soaked in an Alaskan rainstorm, and being highjacked by my teenage daughter. It isn't a high end phone and it isn't fancy, but for the price, texting convenience, durability, and performance I would give very high marks. I would and do recommend it to people that I know.
