I have this phone and it glitches all the time. When I first opened it out of its box and turned it on it glitched instantly. I'm changing this phone ASAP
paulc, 20 Sep 2012Is NOT worth buying this phone, its internal memory is terribly low. It says 180MB available b... moredude that's your phone plan's problem because it makes a sound when I recieve a text
I got this phone a couple of months ago. Since it's my first cell phone, I don't really have any to compare it to, but there are a few basic things that I don't like about it... The battery life sucks, sometimes the phone will ring and I won't be able to answer it b/c the friggin' touch screen won't work and the sound is too low for my liking; if your'e on the bus, forget it!
Very poor battery (I need to charge it every day. I wouldn't trust it as an emergency phone.
Low earpiece volume (even at max. setting). If you have hearing problems, forget it.
Dialpad doesn't come up when you need it during a call
Low memory (internal)
Sometimes not responsive to touch or slow
Bottom line: ok for light use but there are better phones out there at the same price.
Once the screen is unlocked, there is a tiny little number at the very top of the screen, why is it there and how do I get rid of it? I have seen it change from 1 to 2 but don't know what it is for.
I finally got around the internal storage problem just keep clearing your data and you are set setting>> manage apps. click on the app and hit clear ..first I kept on deleting the the apps and my old messages..i was alil turned off by now im getting my apps back and i get to retain all my messages( you may need to sync your email, FB twitter instagram) but hey for a low price i am getting a pretty good deal..the recent youtube upgrade is just awesome...
can you upgrade the os on this phone? I have froyo 2.2 and have tried upgrading but no success..
Is NOT worth buying this phone, its internal memory is terribly low. It says 180MB available but once like 60MB is installed you always get the annoying low phone storage memory notification and you can't even receive text messages! You get the notifying sound that you got a text but this junk doesnt let you receive it. I'm getting it swapped tomorrow because this model is not worth being considered a smart phone.
Anonymous, 04 Sep 2012how do you transfer apps from internal to external sd card?Some can and some can't,depends on the app...usually social apps are set on internal(which u can't move them either); game apps are on sd card. But this phone has really low internal storage, 150mb appx and appx 60mb are actually free. This phone also has poor OS and screen resolution. Don't get me wrong through, of course its nothing like galaxy s or iphone, but its still a good smartphone

Anonymous, 23 Jul 2012Umm, I'm thinking of getting this phone. So can anyone who owns the phone please tell me if it... moreI bot the fone yesterday 2012.8.18. Only for texting it is good. U must not expect to use the Calendar function and try to find an appointment later because u can not search the calendar. U can scroll the entries and hope to be patient for what ur looking. Battery is only good if u use fone for texting mainly and keeping the brightness to a minimum. Brightness is decent for texting and phoning even if set to minimum brightness. However, don't expect good quality Speaker fone or Voice recording , because they sound like speaking inside a can and ur listener is getting stressed out when on speaker fone.

Connect with Kier (samsung software), upgrade to a newer Android version, the problem solved, no more auto shut down. good luck.

So can anyone who owns the phone please tell me if it... moreDon't buy Samsung Galaxy-Q T589R, a lot of problem, i only own this phone for 3 months and already give me a lot of problem, first I charge the phone over night and I rarely use the phone and when I first got, the battery last for 5 days and now I have to charge almost everyday and this phone restart by itself, I thought it might be I touch it but actually keep doing over and over few times during a week.
I sent it back to Fido for repaire and take 10 days without phone and they replace some part on this phone but still having same problem, so I set it back as manufacture default setting and couple days later doing it again, and Fido want me to bring it back to store to repair and have no phone for 10 days again.
This phone also freeze up while you are on the phone or when you try to dial extension the number pad does not pop up for dial a number.
I have one other friend also have same phone and she rarely use the phone as well and having similar problem as I have. So don't buy this phone.
Reasonably fast, I got one for my wife but am currently looking for an os update battery life is not great but an is update should help. You can get it on a plan in b.c. Without a data plan which is cheaper, overall not a bad unit.
