Man, apparently there are some folks who still own and use this phone. I guess I'd join the league haha.
I own one too since around 2012 or so and it's still working handsomely, although now used only for SMS and telephony. Yeah, the memory is a huge bummer, I had to root the phone to remove some built-in apps, even Google Play Services and GMaps. But in case of basic communication, it's still capable.

If not, install them manually as APKs.
Anonymous, 29 Oct 2017This phone is awesome,im love itA phone that was considered "budget" 6 years ago, and you're saying it's awesome, IN 2017? Err...okay...have you not even seen any other phones ever and this is the only phone you even know of?
A month ago i went out to market and it started raining heavily. My Galaxy Y was almost completely washed and i thought that is it.
When i came home i cleaned it with a towel and it started working again. This little phone is a rock :)
Bought a new battery and it is like new once again.

To add internal memory i have rooted my Galaxy y S5360 three times but it lasts maximum for a year and then crashes because it was being rooted, then i have to go for software installation at Samsung, I have done this for 4 times so to avoid such problem, now i am using it with its genuine software which i got installed from it service center, with its limited memory, it is working well, but now i can install very few apps due to its limited memory.
joblack, 11 Apr 2017how to install Gta games on this phone..Root your galaxy y and search for gta3 for galaxy y on google
I don't even think this phone can even spoil. i have use it for 5 years now but i have no major problem with it. It hav never been to repairs before. The only sad thing is u will just put like 3 applications and it will tell u that internal storage is getting full and it cant support any app again very sad.
i got this phone when my old one broke, as a cheapish temporary one until i could afford to get another decent one, ended up just keeping it i,v had it several years now, dropped it a hundred times, no damage, batteries still good its a good basic cheap phone defo in need of an upgrade now though very limited storage as well as limited on the apps that you can download. good for phone calls, texts, alarms, MP3s and a game of sudoku if your after more this phone is past it.
