Pros Full Qwerty Keyboard
Built in IM such as AIM
Camera Options are more customizable than my camera
The MyAccount feature
Lots to personalize
Cons You have to flip the phone open to use most of the features
Dowloaded moving images move slower
Did not come with USB cable, something almost all phones have
Summary It was like love at first sight with this phone. I found this phone at the end of the row at the store and I just had to have it. The design was very unique, it felt sturdy in the hand plus the miniture keyboard was actually perfect for me, despite the fact that I have pretty large hands. The AIM IM capability was amazing cuz now i talk with my friends even more on the go. Plus you can even look into your email for new mesgs. I do not have a data plan so I could look into my new messages but I could never open the messages or delete them.The whole USB cable thing was a real downer. I use my music alot, plus im going on a trip soon and it would be nice to have music jst in case my ipod ran out of battery. Downloaded images that are supposed to move do go alot slower than they are supposed to. But thats not such a huge problem for me. But the biggest suprise for me about this phone is the camera options. You get the standard 2.0 megapixel camera but the settings are amazing. You can change the color of the photo like negative, watercolor, black and white, but it also has smile shot, the mosaic feature, and a bunch more. This phone was an amazing breakthrough for me for my very first phone. I was a little nervous getting it because all my friends and my teacher said their samsung phones dont work that well. Looks like Samsung has made a Comeback.

Pros "Small" compare to other phones.
The QWERTY Keyboard has space in between buttons.
web browsing speed is okay.
Cons Flipping it all the time when you get a picture message, got tired of it.
Buttons are small to it's hard to text when you have big thumbs.
IM is slow as well goes for e-mails.
Camera can't zoom a lot.
Summary Overall this phone is pretty good if you are more into a "texting" phone. The battery can last a long time with just texting. The front side is like a regular 12 button phone. The other side of this phone is a full QWERTY Keyboard for fast texting. Flipping can get annoying after a while when it comes to texting. This is more of a phone for teenagers.
"I love this phone!"on by kittia
Pros QWERTY Keyboard, works well.
I like having a screen on the outside and inside,
It's pretty durable through many falls.
Takes goodish pictures.
Cons Kind of chunky, but I've gotten used to it. It's chunkier with a cover, but it's worth it.
Call quality, not so great. But I text more than I call.
Annoying beep when the ringtone is is turned up.
Summary I like having a screen on the outside to check messages, then I can open it and send a message back, or I can also send a quick text using t9.
I've dropped it so many times... and it is still working fine, if not a little bit slower.
Get a cover for it. There are some really cute ones, and I think that is why it's so durable. Before, I would drop it and the battery would fall out. The cover keeps it contained so that the battery can't fall out.
I love the colors. I have the red, my mom has the purple.
One thing that bugs me more than a anything.. I like hearing a ringtone for a text, but if I do, I have to deal with a "beep" everytime I push a letter in a text. So annoying. On my old cheap phone there was a way to turn it off with keeping the ringtone on. For that, I only give it 4 stars.
I love the phone as a whole! There are just a few quirks that I don't like about it, but that doesn't keep me from loving it.
Pros Appearance, Camera, MP3, Email, IM, Web
Cons Small crappy screen on the cover, Orange colored keys on the cover dont match the phone what so ever.
Summary I had this as a upgrade from a LG NET10 Phone, and i LOVE this phone. :DAmazing phone. :)

Pros You've got a full QWERTY keyboard.
The paint job is slick like a ferrari. Red and white.
Cons Bulky & huge, thumbs r trapped inside, Bad orange backlight color on outside, no radio. Worst of all: The left and right soft touch keys inside are on hinge = annoying Wish the manufacturers had built those to the sides like in the Samsung gravity 2.
Summary If you don't have a data plan, then this phone is only good for people who have small hands and text a lot.
