All of mine do and I don't have a Fave 5 plan.
I got this phone last week from T-Mobile. T-Mobile doesn't offer much in the way of full qwerty keyboards. Here is what I have discovered about this phone so far:
-You can make your own ringtones from mp3s or midis and put them on the phone.
-Great functioning full qwerty keyboard.
-Inexpensive for those on a budget.
-Decent sound quality for music.
-Bluetooth works great.
-Samsung quality. Solid. Doesn't feel like it will break if you handle it rough.
-Battery life sucks. (Everyone here seems to agree as well.)
-No caller ID names come up on the phone unless they are in your "five faves". Only the number shows up when the phone rings for everyone else (even if they are in your phonebook). This has been confirmed by T-Mobile.
-Samsung claims that up to 4gig SD cards are supported when in reality only up to 2gig SD cards work in the phone.
-Call quality could be better if you actually want to talk on your phone instead of just texting.
Lots of pros and only a few cons, but the cons are really bad. I think I will probably take this phone back to T-Mobile. The worst thing about it for me is the caller ID disappointment.
just got this phone today from costco with all accessories for free, but am not getting any signal in my house???

Plug it into your computer then into the same slot for charging the battery and you can transfer your pix, tunes, vids to and from your computer and phone. It has worked without any problems at all for me.
taylor, 17 Jan 2009so how long does the battery last on a full charge and how much does this phone costuhmm iit lasts like about 9 or 10 hours iif you drain it completely. liike it depends how muchh you use the phonee i guess
The phone cost just around $50 in the mail and just around $100 in the store. It might be extra with the $50 for other fees. Its from T-Mobile. I have this phone and its great except the fact that it doesn't have a USB cord slot so you have to you this my mobile program on T-Mobile in order to put pictures on Myspace, Facebook, etc..
well that phone is soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo cool and i cant, belive i got it i luuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuv it.
so how long does the battery last on a full charge and how much does this phone cost
I love the full key pad. Need it because I'm in my forties and learning to text my teens. But, I also wanted to get rid of my old mp3 player and store music on my phone. It does not have a normal headphone jack!!! I live in a small town, and have to order the adaptor on line, for extra money. Plus, the memory is limited. I should have just gotten the blackberry. By the time I buy the adaptor, the memory card, the adaptor cable for my computer because it doesn't have the usual outlet for usp connection, it costs the same as it would for a less capable phone.
Nicole, 11 Jan 2009hi everyone i have this phone. it rocks. there really is no bad thing about it in my opinion. ... morelol nicole, i dont know how your phone lasts 3 days because mine couldnt last 12 hours.maybe you jsut got lucky (:
hi everyone i have this phone. it rocks. there really is no bad thing about it in my opinion. the battery life is okay it lasts about 3 days and fully charges in about 20 min. get this phone you will not regret it
i jsut got this phone like yesterday and its an amaziiing phonee. the only problem ii have is the battery life (but so is everyone else) and i cant get my phonebook to work. i try to open up the application (?) and then all that comes up is "mobile is initiating backup" and i dont now what that means. The only numbers i currently have on my phone that show are people with the names up to the letter "m". when my friend Nicole texted me, i tried to add her name to my contacts list but it said it was already there. this might sound confusing but if anyone understands it please help me cause i dont know what to do !
I recently purchased the Samsung Gravity and almost returned it due to the poor battery life. I previously had a BlackBerry that stopped working. I did not want to replace it with another BlackBerry and decided to give this phone a try because I liked the QWERTY keyboard.
I found a few forums that suggested allowing the batter to fully drain before recharging. I repeated this process for two days and now my battery holds a full charge. I charged it this morning and it is almost 5 pm eastern and I still have a full charge.
I hope that this means the problem has been solved.
cAiTLiN, 01 Jan 2009im getting this phone in like 4 DAYS!!! yahhhhhh! i cant wait!! im so excited! i have never ha... moreomg!!

i really thought that somthing was wrong with my battery, but i found other ppl in my skool wit da phone and they said they had da same problem. i called da t-mobile company before about dis problem and they wanted me to send it back, but when i call them this week(one week later from my initial call), they said they are aware of da problem and dat they have an upgrade on da battery,and as i write dis my new upgraded battery is being sent to me. hopefully it'll be a really good upgrade,so i wont have to hate t-mobile for da rest of my life.
call t-mobile people to get ur new battery
Despite the substandard battery, I really, really enjoy using this phone. I've had several cell phones in the past years and this is one of my favorites.
It suits my needs very well and has the features I want and need and none that I don't.
I like the straight-forward design of the phone and the easy learning curve. I even like the funky grey/lime color scheme of my particular Gravity.
And no! I'm not a 15 year old who likes it just because i'm a texting fanatic....LOL
I'm a 41 year old guy who likes it because it works!
