I've had this phone for 2 years now, and I will tell you honestly that I am not happy with it.
When I got it 2 years ago, it did work and everything went smoothly and it was okay and it could last a full day (7 AM to 10 PM) even though I used it all the time for multiple apps (I'm 16 years old, I got it when I was 14 so I used it a lot). I was used to a blackberry curve back then, it would always jam a full day so it was never in use except for the first month or so.
What happened to this phone is not worse, but it comes close. After around 2 months it started jamming sometimes, but hey, I didn't really mind. Then I noticed that my software does NOT work well with an SD-card, because I've had to download apps that could transfer files from my simcard to my SD-card, and some files even got lost somewhere in there.
But I didn't really have anything to complain about, until now after two long years.
My phone keeps jamming and when I open apps to talk to people it always takes up to 15 minutes to at least click on a conversation with someone and it takes another 5 until I can actually type something. Not only that, but sometimes my keyboard just disappears and even though I keep pushing the place where I'm supposed to type. Plus, sometimes it just jams for no reason.
It takes horrible pictures and if you don't want your battery to die in 3 hours, you'll need to either use it only little or you need to dim the light that comes off your screen. But, this is barely to not at all visible in sunlight. But make sure to never let even the littlest drop of water fall on the screen, because it won't respond well to it.
If you still plan on buying this phone, be sure to live in a place where there's never any rain or sunlight because it is unable to handle either of them.
So unless you are planning on buying a new phone every half year, I'd stop searching for samsung phones that are 200 euros because trust me, buying a way better phone for 400 euros will honestly save your money. (the my microUSB-slot broke once and my sister has a phone like this too and hers broke twice, 150 euros down the drain)
And no, I'm not just a whiney teenager. If you see reviews about this phone online, make sure to check the date: 2 and a half years ago these specs were okay/good, now they are outdated, old and they can be utmost annoying if you've had this phone for 0.5+ years.
what is the problem if it's service network not work?. But when I restart my device phone, it will be ok everything is good. Then after some hours again network close .....so the problem is I can't call to anyone and they can't reach or find me any person when they need me because of the problem service network.

I have been using this phone for 2 years now and still the phone works like it is new, there are features on this phone that i can not find in some new phone releases these days. its durable too i dropped it on the floor while cleaning it and nothing happens even the casing remained intact. I hope Samsung will continue to update this phone with latest Android OS.

Just flash your phone to the latest version exists using your computer. Search the latest ROMS on samsung-updates.com or sammobile.com
after this try to disable services or programs you do not use.
modern google apps are very RAM hungry. the phone's 1gb is barely enough for them. it is a way google to force us buy new phones.
So my advice is DO NOT UPGRADE OR BETTER DEACTIVATE APPS YOU DO NOT NEED, using your phone's settings.
[deleted post]I had the same problem which increased after updating from 4.1.2 to 4.2.2. The battery sometimes used to drain about 30 percent in no time. However, a hard reset just once, solved it
