paddy, 13 Oct 2015I new a new Samsung discover sgh 5730 m cell phoneI can factory reset mine and you can have it for under $50. I hate mine and if I "lose" it I might get a new one.
I bought this phone in 2012 for $100 and it came with a free sim card ($20) as well as $10 airtime to get you started. It was my first Android phone, and is a decent basic phone. The screen is very low-res with horrid colours as its only 256K colours versus 16M for most smartphones. The battery is crap. The adreno 200 and 800mhz cortex A5 are very weak, so gaming won't work unless playing low quality games. All in all, its a good first phone to give a kid or an older person who doesn't need bells and whistles. But its truly a brick.
oliversmomrn, 14 Sep 2015How do I change the SIM card on this phone? You have to take the battery out of the back and the SIM card is behind it. Just pull the back case off, it won't break.
I love this phone! I have had it for over and year and it works really well and glitches every once and a while but it a great phone with a camera that works if you just want to capture a few special moments :) There are some reviews out there that say this isn't the best phone but for me it's great and I use it a lot for social media and games.
i had samsung galaxy discovery of model sgh-s730m and was stolen by somebody. i heard that there is a possibility to get it back through google. is it possible for google to indicate which sim number is inserted and be used in this mobile? if possible my email address is email@example.com
Oliversmomrn, 14 May 2015Does anyone know how to change the SIM card on this phone? It is underneath the battery, just like on any other phone, lol.
princess ㇬, 30 Apr 2015Its slow and I always have "low storage" it doesn't even have a camera. I seriously ... moreif you wanted a front camera then buy one that has it but the phone shows you that it dont have one so y would u expect more than what the phone brings lol stupid
Anonymous, 30 Apr 2015This is easily the worst and slowest phone I've ever used. Giving it a rating at 0/5 stars is ... morethe speed on the browser of the phone is based on ure signal or wireless speed dont blame the phone for your wifi connection or signal and fyi a mobiles internet is always slow no matter the phone model and if your carrier has 2G only in your area well ofcourse it will be slow.... stupid people
Pierson Jnr, 09 Apr 2015Can you please help me with how to take a screen shot??? looks like I have exhausted all means... moreto take a screenshot you press the power on button and the volume down button at the same time, holding them down till it makes a very loud snap and youll see the screenshot being shrunk - there is an odd delay before it registers the frame you want so if you are working with a video then you need to start pressing the buttons about 2 seconds before the frame you want

There are some applications too that work with relatively low memory android phones as compared to mine but my S730M can't run such apps. eg: special font styles app.
I paid 30$ for it and another 35$ to get it unlocked.For less than 70$,as a pay as you go phone it's decent.Its a basic cheap smartphone.As for battery life,yes it does discharge fairly quickly but I just turn all the settings down n it's fine.You get what you pay for so people should do their research before buying something.I knew what I was getting with this phone because I did some checking and knew the phones limitations.Im happy with it.You want all the bells n whistles,go spend 300$.People are so spoiled these days!
