This is an absoulutely AMAZING, phone! I GOT It for FREE since my mom added her 5th line to the plan! ITS SO AMAZING! I have it in purple and it looks so sexyyy! I Love to show it off! AT&T IS amazing! I Can go to a different' state and STILL HAVE SERVICE! its the best! If this phone sucks for you BOOHOO IT'S AMAZING FOR ME! but sometimes it MIGHT FREEZE but oh well its still amazing! i love the way the chat is! it makes it look like an iPhone chat!! anyways the vibration is LOUD! u can turn it to MUTE in the SOUND PROFILE and YES U CAN SET RINGTONES FOR TEXT MESSAGES in the SOUND PROFILE! awww this phone is GREAT!!!
This phone seems nice at first but the small buttons make it a huge hassle for men. It is also built cheaply and breaks way too easily for any man who works in an active environment. I am a field tech who works both inside and occasionally outside. The first one broke within a month while it was in my belt holster and the second one is not acting like it forgot my password. Also, I am sure that nobody messed with it and changed the password.
the samsung strive is ok but id rather have a new phone because i went through 2 of then in 2 weeks and i didnt do anything, the batterie got super hot, the screen got messed up, and it said that it was plugged in to the computer when it wasntt, but the good thing about that it was charging it self and i didnt have to plug it in.
this phone is bomb you guys should lower the price
garbage, repeatedly works then doesnt work. They also make u pay for a batttery after your 1st one breaks and in a few day you will experience the same problem
why do you blame at&t?..at&t provides service ,,NOT PHONES.MY SERVICE WITH ATT IS GREAT.friendly reminder,,just delete some of your datas to free up some memories,that is one reason for phones to freeze.
I have no comment about Samsung Strive A687. The problem is the server AT&T how to UNLOCKED? Useless to other country.
I've had two of these since last summer. They were both sluggish and burned the batteries out ridiculously fast. These phones are trash.
It's a great phone. But when I text, sometimes it freezes or crashes on me. I blame that on at&t, because my mom has the same problem on her iphone. It is a problem because sometimes I need to restart it to get it unfrozen. I recomend it if you don't mind dealing constantly with slow internet, crashes, and freezing.
very very good.......
i think this phone is so beautiful. something diffErent :)WOULD LOVE TO KNOW THE PRICE
I hate this phone, internet connection is so slow, I hate this phone, I wasted my money getting into this stupid contract. I repeat, I hate this phone
okay. my keypad is all fudged up the backlight on the keys isn't lighting up and it won't let me type anything so i can't even put in my password. can some one please tell me what's wrong with it?? D:
I got my strive in May and ive had it for 4 months. Ive had many phones before this and they were very difficult to operate, but this phone is very easy to operate and it has all the capabilities of more expensive phones. I havent had any problems with mine whatsoever. Overall this is the best phone ive ever had.
how to unlock AT&T
can we use all function of A687 in the other country?
I have one, so I cannot chat, or online, please give me your advice
this fone lookz so cute but how much is it and patty seems to have alot of probles
Patty, 08 Aug 2010I got the stive in may, black one. The memory slot had issues so i exchanged it and they only ... morebtw forgot to say I had major issues with connecting it to usb. Gave up onthat and only use memory card to add tones and pictures. Camera is probably my favorite part of the phone. I would not recommend this phone.
I got the stive in may, black one. The memory slot had issues so i exchanged it and they only had purple. Worked fine for about two months. If you customize the tones it seems to run slow. It claims to play MP3s and it does only the phone has no ear plug and the sound coming off phone isnt great. It drains the battery after a few songs.. mp3 player its not!! The battery handles texting well but nothing else really. Now the battery wont hold a charge. I plug it in at night and an hour off the charger its down to 3 bars. Now I only take if off charger to make calls or leave the house. Monday I am going to take it back!!
yes, this phone is 3g. its a great phone! it also comes in blue.. but i agree, there should be more colors. love it!
