worst phone ever... i wanted the newest best phone out there, so i went to metro pcs and saw the galaxy attain 4g and immidiatley thought this has go to be the best phone. talked to the guy there and he made it seem like a big deal and a perfect phone... it wasnt at all what he said.. first day, i got in my car and sat there for a minute trying to surf the web, it would not connect, so i took it back and then he said ohhh you may need wifi to surf the web. (wow! that sucks) so i got home and got it to work finnaly. first thing i did was charge it. next day came and i took it off the charger and i went out to school. by the time school was out i noticed i only had about 20 percent battery left. so i went home charged it and i was talking on it for maybe 1 hour and noticed it went dead so i said ok whatever. i then went to download an app and it said no connection retry later. (i was connected to wifi!) so i then texted my friend that the phone sucks and it said text could not be sent will send when returns to service. so i waited and finally took it back they said they cant fix it (btw it was at metro so i recomend you not get metro at all) so i went home and it wouldnt run any apps at all now. so i got mad and took it back they had to warranty it out this time. so i thought it was just that 1 phone. (i was wrong) it wouldnt run apps or anything took it back and because of a small little tiny dent they would not warranty it out. wow! SO I AM CURRENTLY waiting for a charge back. long story short i had to take it back 4 times and now im done with samsung and metropcs
I got it and I havent had 4g service for a month now and metro doesnt want to fix it.worst phone ever.

The purpose of writing this review is to get the REAL TRUTH out there!! When shopping for new phone service, I went to MetroPCS because I thought I'd get a deal and save money (I was wrong). I asked about the battery life for the Samsung Galaxy Attain phone, and was told that it would last all day with minimal text and phone use. After purchasing this phone with the unlimited MetroPCS service, I immediately ran into technical issues while setting up my phone and e-mail accounts. When I call customer support I had to jump through hoops just to get a real person, and when I did they barely spoke English and offered no help. My first day of regular usage consisted of taking the phone off the charger at 10:00am, not using the phone at all with it on standby until my lunch break at 4:30pm, and by this time the battery was dead. I thought surely this was a phone defect and not a regular occurance. I checked forums that all said positive stuff about the phone and dismissed any problems. I tried apps to increase the battery life, and anything else I could think of. However, The phone wouldn't even hold a charge in standby for 6hrs. When I took the phone back to the dealer, he was reluctant to return the phone because it had over 2 hours of talk time already, which was impossible for the amount I used it. I explained the problem and he told me my only choice was to take it to a corporate store to get a replacement. When I went to the corporate store I started to explain my problem to the rep. and before I could finish she knew exactly what phone model I was referring to as if this were a regular issue. She told me that even if she replaced the phone I'd still have the problem because the 4G LTE network (that you can't turn off) drains the battery so quick. The only option she offered me was to buy 2 additional batteries to keep as backup, explaining that the other rep. does the same for her phone. I felt like I was lied to by the dealer to get a sale, however, upon reflection I think he may have just told me what he thought was right. After a huge fuss and an unrelenting ambition I returned the phone and got my money back. I then went straight to the AT&T store and purchased a new 4Gs 16gb iPhone for $100 less than the Samsung Galaxy Attain phone & service. My battery lasts all day and then some, and I've had no problems with service. Why ANYONE would EVER purchase the Samsung Galaxy Attain 4G phone is far beyond comprehension. Even the most basic of functions on this phone are only accessible with a charger nearby. Bottom-Line - The phone is no good if you can't use it for what you need. WORST PHONE EVER!!
the samsung attain awesome its the best phone on metro hands down. the lg esteem great phone battery life want hold a charge longer than 4hrs.....while the attain stays charge all day long end of story...
