I have this phone and there's 2 sensors on the front by the listening piece. What are these for? How do I activate usage of these? Is one a alert light for texts/calls?

I got this phone about 2 months ago. It was working pretty well up until yesterday (had a few strange things happen prior to yesterday, like having the phone freeze on me when I tried to use the camera, having it go on and off when I tried putting in my voicemail password) but these things always seemed to correct themselves after a few minutes, or after I took out the battery.

But yesterday the phone stopped being able to receive or make calls and lost all browser capabilities. I called Straight Talk (on a different phone) and went through the run around with them for like two hours! They kept transferring me to different departments, with each new person asking me the same exact questions and telling me to do the same exact things-so annoying!

Finally they were like "We need to send you a new phone" So now I have to send back the old one and wait for them to send me a new one! I will be without a phone for a week at least! I really hope this new phone doesn't turn out like this one.

Are a lot of people having the same problem that I am? I am thinking that I should file a complaint against Samsung...I will wait to see what happens with the new phone, but if I end up with the same issue I am definitely filing a complaint against them-I mean I paid 179.00 $ for this thing and it only worked for 2 months!

File an FCC complaint against Straight Talk and Samsung. Samsung will shift the blame and say that it is Straight Talk's problem. Remind Samsung that they are the manufacturer of this overpriced paperweight.

I too have this worthless piece of crap from Straight Talk. It worked perfectly for about a month, and then strange things started to happen.

I could not access my voice mail. I had to create a voice mail account at least 5 times. I could not access the internet due to so-called connection problems. Then it would go into airplane mode. Then the volume of the call changes. One could barely hear or understand what the other caller is saying.

Yesterday morning, I could not receive or make a phone call. I could not call 911 without hearing "Welcome to Verizon." Your number is invalid or does not exist. Excuse me. This is a Samsung problem. If the phone is unable to connect to a network, there is something major wrong with the circuit board. I have a neighbor who has Straight Talk and she can use her phone.

I have filed several FCC complaints about this phone. Maybe if everyone who has this phone do the same thing, then maybe something just might be done.

I've had this phone for about a month. I talk on the phone and I can hardly hear the person on the other end. If you're in a quiet room it's ok. The speaker works great but sometimes you want to be private.
Also, I had internet capabilities when I first got the phone. Now I can only get internet off of WiFi. If I can't get these problems fixed I will never but another one again.
