"Worst phone I have owned since 1993"2.0 starson by osubob
Pros: Price ($99), size and full keyboard.
Cons: Touch screen either too sensitive or not sensitive enough. Screen too small for web use. Horrible web browser (may not be Samsung problem).
Summary: I bought this phone when I switched from a Blackberry Curve with Verizon to AT&T. It looked impressive in the store and the features appeared sufficient for my needs. I would have kept the Blackberry, but it is incompatible with AT&T service.
I initially blamed the performance difficulties on my unfamiliarity with this type of phone; however, after 2 months of using it, I realize the problem is the phone and/or AT&T.
The touch screen is the worst that I have ever used. It is far too sensitive, especially when trying to scroll through contacts or surf the web. You are constantly switching to contacts or screens that you do not want and then having to go back and try again. Perhaps Samsung should have included a stylus. I have an HP Pocket PC and have started using the stylus with the Solstice whenever I use the internet.
If I had used the internet browser more during the 30 day trial period, I would have returned the phone to AT&T. I only use the internet feature whenever I am unsure about the quality or value of a product when I am shopping, so it is not a daily occurrence. After a couple of really frustrating experiences, I have taken the time to really test it out and find it extremely unfriendly.
I have had Motorola Q, Blackberry Curve, LG, and Motorola StarTac cell phones in the past and I have never been motivated to write a review about a cell phone until I used this one. It may work out for you, but find out during the 30 guarantee period. I will probably buy a blackberry soon and chalk up the $99 cost for this phone to a learning experience.
