over all is it a good phone to buy? i was looking to but a galaxy s but bit too pricy, my friend suggested the samsung star to me and he said its 2nd best to the galaxy s, so pleeeeez tell me if the star is woth buying, thanks in advance!
I used this phone for about 6 months and the touchscreen became misaligned. For instance, in order to press an icon/number on the touchscreen, i would have to tap on the area much further below the actual icon/number that i wanted to activate. i took it back because it was still under warranty and they gave me a new phone because Samsung couldn't fix it or it was cheaper for them to give me a new phone than to fix the touchscreen. The new one is working great. I think I may have messed up the first one by dropping it into the ocean a few months prior to the touchscreen misbehaving :-O but don't think i told the supplier that!
I ownd this fone 4 a month and its a gud phone , i love it . . . if ur star gives problems it means u dont take care of it

(ExCiTeD), 03 Dec 2010I am going to get a Samsung STAR..=]..i am so EXCITED but i just want too know a little about ... moreSamsung star is just a java phone. its not a smart phone. and thats its biggest disadvantage. rather buy yourself nokia 5230 its an almost up to date smart phone with 3g but no wifi symbian os based. Youll be 1 million times happier owning a smart phone to a java phone, trust me! We're in the new era lets not limit ourselves.
mysterious dude, 12 Dec 2010I bought this phone about a month ago. It is almost perfect besides the fact that it has no 3G... moreWifi and 3g are hardware features. Meaning the physical phone must have the electronic components that enable 3g and wifi, you must buy a phone with 3g and Wifi. You cant put it on as software!
Ganu, 05 Dec 2010i owned this phone for 9 months, now the touch screen and i cant use the phone. my advice dont... morehad the phone 6 months and the touch screen is gone just the same it is a matter of recalibration but i cannot get into the menu because i the menu button is part of the touch feature. i have myself a paper weight
I bought this phone about a month ago. It is almost perfect besides the fact that it has no 3G or WiFi. This leads to my question, can a person put WiFi or 3G in a phone on their ow wihout damaging it?
Hey, I saw a friend with this phone, It's cool. And the guy had 21MB of JAVA APPS!!! And I thought Samsung java phones were restricted to 4Mb(I'm using Champ). I wish my Champ didnt have that java limitation. :-(
After about a year the buttons go dodgy.i own it for a year and a half.the "back" button stopped working a few months ago.The green button some times dosen't work.
It was good when it came out first.I dropped fom half way up the stairs on to a tile floor and the screen wouldn't work . i got it fixed for free thanks to being with Meteor.the buttons still worked though. Touchscreen phones are all useless.get a phone with buttons
i got updated software.it has exchange activesync.also live updates of social networking sites.cool......
I am using dis from 2weeks it’s a great phone slim, light weight and sharp screen, its touch screen is very impressive but stick is not given but u’ll not feel, security functions like password options on many folders including My Files, Videos, Massages etc are plus point for Samsung. Sound quality is good on a speaker and on a hands free u can change sounds with equalizer like Rock, Jazz, Dance etc…if I say it wouldn’t wrong sound quality is good then Nokia. But Sony Ericson mobile gives a out class sound quality no doubt and second Samsung. Its picture quality is excellent v can compare with Nokia 5mp and with upper versions. Internet speed on hand set is good without Walan and 3G impressive and its battery is also covers long time.
It’s a great invention within its price very cheap as compare to Nokia and others.
I jst bought this unit last week, the phone is good. The problem is that when you mistakenly press the wrong password many times, the sim password will be locked, you cannot access all your files anymore. my question, what will you do to access everything back again.
i owned this phone for 9 months, now the touch screen and i cant use the phone. my advice dont buy dis phone
