I brought the phone a last week, it's great but I have some comments\question:
1. how about the headsets, does Samsung provide normal ones for music, not Bluetooth i mean
2. I tried installing some games and the phone says that .jar and .cab file r not supported
3. Is there a way to really lock files on the phone, because the lock isn't really effective as anyone can unlock it
I have had this phone for a number of years along with many others. Sure it's no smartphone, it has no touch screen, and it won't turn many heads if you're trying to impress people with a cell phone.
What this phone does do well is make phone calls and basic PIM functions as many previous feature phones have done. This is a great value for several reasons not really shown. It has a built-in dedicated Facebook client, Google Maps with GPS support, and a decent music player that supports iTunes non DRM music.
The still camera is quite impressive for a phone of this caliber, it won't replace your point & shoot but for sharing pictures with friends or on Facebook, the colors are well saturated and image quality is really nice for a fixed focus 2MP shooter.
The cons of this model, no headphone jack! Especially on a phone that has a built-in music player. The other major failure is the downright awful video quality when using this phone to capture video. Really if you are thinking about it, just don't. Much older feature phones I've had from Samsung had much better.
The great part of this phone is battery life. Since the CPU runs under 200Mhz, there's little to drain the battery unless you are using GPS navigation. Telenav is on board and using the 3G radio and GPS while keeping the display lit will require a car charger/cradle. Other than that, basic calls and texting with the well spaced keyboard have kept this phone away from the charger for a day or two.
For the price, it's a decent phone for those who prefer a simple phone and a slide out keyboard for texting with ease.
helena, 22 Sep 2012How do I get a capital letter when texting? The ALT key doesn't do it and I can't seem to find it.Use the blue Symbol word lettering key that has a white lettering shift key below it. You can only do one letter at a time. Home that answers your question.

I've had this phone for over a year and it works great. Dropped it on several occasions and it's still fully functional. I love texting on it, it's so easy and efficient. They keys are spaced apart well. I dont use the camera much but when i do, its decent. Good for just 2 MG. Some cons that I found are; there isn't threaded text messaging, which I really wish this phone had. And in the sun the screen is sometimes hard to see. Also, it's hard to see the time because it's really small in the corner, which irks me. There are no options to change it. But overall it's not a bad phone. The battery life is pretty good.
Anonymous, 13 Jun 2012This has a touchscreen (was looking foe one that specifically didn't have one for y Dad)I have this exact phone and it does not have a touch screen at all. Only the T9 keys or the slide out keyboard to operate the phone. There are similar models that have the same OS with look and feel that do.
