  • Unlocked - Quality and Price

    Bought this as a replacement for my son. He spends about 3 months of the year in China and the rest in Seattle so having an unlocked phone makes it easier for us. He likes the phone a lot. He found it easy to use. He had another SAMSUNG phone so he adapted quickly to the menu's. The "bad" stuff: A) the phone came from Germany so the language took a minute to change (I speak a little so it wasn't too challenging for me and I was confident that it included an English option), and B) the power adapter was for Europe (cool if you are planning to travel, but not so cool if you need to charge it here). The solution to the power supply was easy - my son's old phone used the same adapter. If it had been a USB (I wish that someday all phones use a USB for power) it wouldn't have been an issue either. We have had the phone for several weeks. It went right into service (okay, I had to seat the SIM twice, but I will put that down to user error) and he has found it easy to use. It has far more functionality than he needs, but we could add internet service to it, etc. He will be using it in China next week and that should pay for itself. This is a good price for a mid-range quality phone.

  • Pretty Good Phone

    The phone itself works fine. The vibrate on the phone is very weak. Texing can be difficult because of the touch screen. But works great overall.

  • Very Surprised

    The phone I ordered is a very nice phone. However, if I had known that the phone was made and shipped from a foreign Mfr. (Hong Kong) I would not have ordered it. Unfortunately my carrier cannot trouble shoot this phone, nor can Samsung in the U.S.. and should something happen to it, well I'm not sure whether or not I would get a replacement. The phone was delivered with no instructions or warranty information in English. However I had 3 booklets in French, German and some other language. The camera is suppose to have 3.0 resolution, but it takes awful pictures and they all have to be edited before sending out, unlike my Samsung Impression which takes beautiful pics with the same resolution. At&t did help me set it up so that I could receive multimedia messages, but God forbid I loose the settings. It took a little under an hour for them to help me get it set up. Very nice phone, but not worth the trouble.

  • Some Issues to consider

    The phone itself is really nice, but this particular phone sold by Overstock comes with non english manuals, no charger for the USA, instead they give you Europe plug in charger . The phone when not in your hand, and used against your face will hang up by the bottom keys. And good luck when you have a phone call and need to then enter numbers to move forward on an automated call. You have to press an unlock button which still gives you navigation keys rather than the numerical entries. Texting is also no fun and letters are easily wrong when you touch the letter you think will pick up and post. So Id say this phone has some downsides. My guess with more use, you can over come these obstacles , but its a pain in the butt to have to navigate, switch screens for certain simple functions. When speaking to others who have touch screen phones, they too have the same complaints so its not this particular phone causing frustration, but most of them have these common frustrations. Get the extended warranty cause this phone is lightweight and one drop and Im sure it will no longer work. There is a manufacturers warranty but after that first year , you will have lost your initial investment. There is no English manual, and the Samsung website doesn't have any support or manual either, it comes with a CD with some tips , but still a complicated device, compared to phones with keys built in. Good luck . Some would say its not a keeper.

  • Not much you can do with this phone

    I bought the pink Samsung GTS5230, was impressed with the look of it when it arrived. But i then realized it's only good for making, recieving calls, & simple texting. Cannot send multimedia messages, pics. etc. And there is no web access. Called my cell phone carrier to see if they could fix the settings, and it can not. Was told the phone was made in Asia, and that is how it is made. I am very dissapointed. I will be sticking with my cell phone carrier, for a new phone
