This is the worst phone samsung ever made..... the bluetooth doesnt work... it turns off ebery second... the sound quality is very poor u name it.... it has all the fault one could think off, would not suggest this phone for my worst enemy.
renata, 11 May 2010Is there any way to connect this telephone to pc ?Yes, Google eBay for A-177 Data Cable.
This is not a bad phone for the money.
One of the major drawbacks is that the processor is not large big enough to read all websites. On some sites you will get a prompt that says, "Document To Large".
On YouTube you will get a prompt that says, "Format Not Supported".
That being said those sites are in the vast minority.
The camera's bad.. I won't lie. .3 megapixel's won't end your pic in a gallery, BUT, if you need a camera in an emergency it will do fine.
For surfing, texting, and talking this phone for the most part is fine. The speaker phone is fine also.
The small keyboard is no problem, the keys are tilted to contour to your fingers and work great.
Overall for the price (I paid $40 thru my carrier) this phone is good.
Anonymous, 20 Aug 2010I am considering buying one, I was wondering if you can make text messaging groups: example: e... moreYes you can do that. You can send the same text to many people at the same time.

Worst phone I've EVER had. It's constantly turning off and turning itself back on i'd say 5-10 times a day. The keys are way too small. Service is horrible. It takes forever to load the interner and it's EXTREMELY limited. I've only been able to get on Myspace, Facebook, and TMZ mobile. Texting is impossible it randomly places periods and doubles sometimes quadruples the letters I want to type. (I.e. Hey whaaaats up?) Takes horrible pictures. No video. Email is limited. Only pro is that the battery life is pretty decent and the call quality isn't bad either depending on location. All in all I would NOT recomind this phone unless it's used strictly for calls.

You can buy a cable from any online vendor like AccesoryGeeks and use your own MP3 files for ringtones (you got to download the desktop software), or download them directly to your phone from the AT&T site. I've already bought a car charger, wired headset, and extra travel charger. I just downloaded OMG by Usher and already bought some TV theme songs for Tones as well. The phone doesn't have a card slot, so, really, you want to use it to listen to music? You can't. Buy an MP3 player from Overstock.com. But, really, just download the manual and you'll see that you CAN send picture email - it's even an option after you take a picture, doh! It's a great backup phone, notifies me when I have email, and I hooked it up to my Google Voice number, so I'm loving it so far. It's just that everything eats up the cash. MMS messaging (pictures) cost more, texts cost 25 cents each. Big Lots sells $$ cards. This isn't an iPhone, or a Blackberry and I'm sorry you guys paid more than $50 new. Go to Target online, or a brick and mortar store and buy. Wait for the Sunday ads, this phone goes on sale every 2 or 3 weeks. It's so small I'm leaving my Smart Phone at home to use it. I found these sites useful. Jeesh!
How can you NOT send pic messages? They are called MMS messages, which this phone supports, and you have to change your default messaging from SMS to MMS. I have been sending, it just costs a bit more. Take a picture, and then hit options, and you can choose to send an email. Download the Samsung Software for the phone, buy a cable, and you can put in your own ringtones from your own MP3 files. Check out these links, and do a Google search for A177 Samsung Accessories to buy a cable. It was pretty clear that this only connects to a hands-free headset - and since it DOES NOT
Jaesha, 14 Jul 2010Well yes there are some wrong things with this phone, bad picture quality, no video, bluetooth... morethats not true i have one and the Bluetooth and everything work! did u get your off ebay some where!!!!
Jaesha, 14 Jul 2010Well yes there are some wrong things with this phone, bad picture quality, no video, bluetooth... moreyes you are right. it doesn't work and only for messaging and calls is useful. we can store many pictures but we cannot even shared.
Well yes there are some wrong things with this phone, bad picture quality, no video, bluetooth dont even work, but as long as i can text and call other's im alright with it, its a beautiful phone and it's the best phone i'v ever had, i had about 19 phones, no lie, and this is the best.
I had this phone for about. . . 4 or 5 months. About every 15 or 20 messages, it will randomly shut off, and restart itself. Then, sometimes i will be waiting on a message and i go to look at my phone, and it's totally off. I have to take the battery out and put it back in. To be honest, i hate this phone with a passion. I bought it for 75, i didnt get my money out of it.
taylor, 28 Apr 2010Alright, for starters, this phone was pretty good when I first got it. Except for the fact tha... moreI know what your talking about. my phone after 90 days started turning off by its self, even when i was in the middle of a conversation. I called AT&T b/c it has a 1yr warrenty and they sent me another one. The one they sent me drops calls all the time and is starting to shut off by its self. So I called them back and they said they cant do any thing about it. I dont understand how the phone messes up its still under warrenty and they cant do anything about it. I have to buy another phone and have only had this one since May! I WOULD NEVER RECOMEND THIS PHONE TO ANYONE!!!!!!!!
Anonymous, 22 Mar 2010It can limit 1836 characters per text message.Thanks man I needed to know this.
Pandi, 05 May 2010Its a pretty good phone i had to buy it cuz mine dies, the only thing I dont like is the fact ... moreYou state all the things that it doesn't have...but before that you start off saying it's a good phone? It's a piece of rubbish, you cannot connect bluetooth with anything bout a headset just to start. The ringtones are soft. Without bluetooth ur doomed to the 3 or so basic tones.
