I like this phone. Now that I finally know how to use it. Takes a while to figure out the buttons. I like the fact that it slides and covers the buttons so you don't accidently call someone when you sit on it. It's slim and fits in your pocket or purse very nicely. I really like it. Takes great pictures and videos.
Both my wife and I had the A767 Propel for a year and a half. The battery life is just terrible --- the worst that we had ever. We use it very little but we keep them with us all the time --- essentially in "always standby" mode. The battery does not last 3 days. We need to charge every other day at least.
Once, I had an overseas trip. I turned the power off on the airplane. I brought it with me only to call my wife when I come back at the airport. When my plane landed in my home city after a one week trip (during that time, the phone was completely OFF), I tried to call my wife. The battery was completely "drained" and I could not make one call. I replaced the battery but it did not help.
We are not going to choose another Samsung for our cell phone.
Samsung is a great name but our experience with the A767 Propel has been just terrible with regard to the battery life.
Lets just say that my phone is a piece of U know what. Mine shuts itself down and will come right back on 4 no apparant reason. It overheats, gets hot 2 the touch, after only being on it for 10-15 minutes. I will never own one of these phones again. AT&T should B ashamed of themselves.
I've had this phone for about a year and I have to say it's the best phone I've ever had. It has amazing storage not to mention a good quality camera. Aside from the fact that in some places it takes a while for texts to send, it's a great phone. I recently dropped it in water and I took it apart and let it sit in rice for a few hours and then tried it. It worked for awhile, and then went haywire on me. I thought it was a goner but I left it in rice overnight anyways, and the next morning I turned it on and I was relieved to find that it worked just like normal.
I got this phone for Christmas of 2008. For about 5 days now it has changed colors on me from blue to orange, when I flip it up the screen might be all white and so I will have to pop out the battery and restart it, the ability for it to send out a message is horrible. I am a ver avid texter and when it takes me up to 20 minutes to send one text message I get pretty steamed. At first this phone was great, but over the past 3 months I have lost more and more signal, the power is always depleting worse than any other phone I have ever owned, ability to send a text is horrific, and because the humidity strip in back is pink/red I have to claim to the insurance and pay 50 dollars and if they do find out it's water damaged than 100 dollars ontop of the 50 dollars. It was a good phone, but not worth it in the long haul.
omg i only brought it in the bathroom once or twice and had a case on and it just stopped charging and tht thing had turned red so ya i got an upgrade
I've had this phone for like a year. And I really havent had any problems with it besides the Battery Life, and sending messages. Some Messages take up to like 8 minutes to send. And I text alot, So I have to charge it everyday, which is annoying. I love te keybored on this phonee, its not too fancy but its really amazing. So easy to text on :] And I swear I have droped that thing more than 894 timess. And its still all good. I even chucked it across a parking lot one night, and its still alive. C: And it also stores alot of stuff I never had too many pictures and sounds and what not and right now i have like 600 photos. Hah. So I recemend this phone to people :) Its a pretty rad phone, even know its not that fancy. Hope I helped
I've had this Samsung A767 Propel since Christmas of 2008. It was a nice phone for a while, then I had problems when I would send out text and it would duplicate numerous times without my control. Eventually, that stopped.
Then, just last night, I was texting and my screen suddenly turned orange and blue. I shut it off and turned it back on, and it was fine. Moments later the screen went completely blank, all white, and I could do nothing with it; I then took out the battery, replaced it, and then it was alright again. Later that night the screen had many horizontal lines going across it, and since then they will appear and then disappear. I'm not sure what the cause of this is, so if there are any solutions you have, comments, or if this has happened to your phone, please respond to this.
This phone is a complete piece of crap! we bought it 8/2009 & since then AT&T has provided us w 3 refurbished phones. Each 1 that came had more problems than prior ones. Multitasking key WON'T work while on internet-can't call out, text play games etc., earpiece on phone is hard to hear person your talking to, most calls are dropped, several texts don't go out or come in, internet usually doesn't connect-it says error 20,when texting if you hold caps shift it doesn't capitalze them and on and on etc!!! We probably will be leaving AT&T since we've been thourougly dissatisfied & utterly disgusted!! Don't buy this phone unless you want dissapointment.
im glad im not going crazy and my phone doesn't go swimming while im asleep. so i've only had this phone for about 2 months and suddenly it starts turning itself off and wont turn back on. i examined the phone to find that the water damage strip had gone red alert and this perplexed me. i have NEVER exposed this phone to moisture; not in the bathroom, not in puddles, not in my soup, i've never spilled beer on it, etc. the only thing my phone does consistently is go from my pocket to my face to my pocket. now it does nothing. "traps body moisture" my foot! so does my underwear which is why im smart enough to not design a cell phone function in it. granted the phone was a gift (or a steal) but the warranty cant be voided because i USED the phone properly. such an ill conceived design should have never made it to the public and AT&T should refund or replace all propels that have shown this same type of malfunction (which i can only imagine is a lot of them.) thanx a lot AT&T.
mosephus, 30 May 2009We bought four propels in December, in the last few weeks two have stopped working, my wife st... moreMy dad got a phone a while ago and now if he presses a button it will put other letter in the texting area when he textes. Also when he talks the voulmn radomly go up and down by its self. IT WILL MAKE A LOAD BEEP!!!!! aahhhhh
my phone has these glitches where it randomly just freezes then turns off and right back on and sometimes doesnt turn back on for about 5 minutes. i have had this phone for about a year nd 2 months. this problem has been going on for about a week. i have never had water damage although i do drop it often. what is wrong with the phone?
Anonymous, 05 Aug 2009If I had read these commnets before I would not have gotten this phone. Acivated it just befo... moresilicone cases have a tendency to trap in body moisture while its in your pocket so that y ur stickers probably red.
Ive read all these comments too and im having the same problem with the speaker... ive NEVER dropped it in water, but i have taken it in the bathroom where i shower and the steam gets it moist or w.e, and now i cant hear a thing when people call me or i call them, but they can hear me.. i can only hear with the speaker on and this is just ridiculous and its making me VERY mad.
i have it i dont think its as bad as all the other comments but i would rather have a smartphone like an htc one or an iphone
Phone is literally a year old Christmas Day and now I can't hear anyone on the other end unless I use speakerphone; this started two days ago. Am reading multiple posts about possible water damage; phone has never been rained on, dropped in water, showered with, etc - took battery cover off and moisture indicator still looks white. Phone also does not turn off/on easily. Liked the expandable memory feature (I also use it as an MP3 player), but not happy with the proprietary headsets. Slide cover is cheaply made and does not seat properly after a year of normal use. Will NOT get another one of these and definitely would not recommend it to anyone.
