Pros It stops paper from flying off my desk
Cons Nothing works. Force closes ALL THE TIME! Freezes up constantly, forces me to miss phone calls. Terrible support, terrible OS, terrible, processor, terrible phone.
Summary I am a new spring customer(Less than 60 days into a new contract). I wanted the Evo for my wife and the Epic for myself. Apparently there was a nationwide shortage. The sales rep asked what I was looking for in a phone. I said, web, text, video, apps, phone. He said check out this intercept it does all of that and it won't cost you anything with the new contract. WORST MISTAKE EVER! I have called customer support repeatedly and they were not only helpful but rude. I have taken it to the sprint store, it has had a hard reset, a cleared cache, a reset to default, everything they could do to "fix" this phone and it still is nothing but a $400 paperweight. I even emailed firstname.lastname@example.org(don't expect to talk to Dan, you'll get a Mike or a Joe or something) explaining my situation, they declined my request for a new phone and sent me to the repair shop would like to give me a refurbished phone of the same model. So I'm thinking wait, you want to give me a USED piece of junk to replace my NEW piece of junk? Makes total sense... NOT! So now here I am, less than 2 months into a new 2 year contract and I'm stuck with a P.O.S. phone for at least the next year. I am very tech savvy, I build computers for a living so please take my advice and DO NOT GET THIS PHONE! IF YOU HAVE IT AND IT'S LESS THAN 30 DAYS TAKE IT BACK! Seriously, if you don't have problems with it now, you will. Samsung rolled out a great new Android OS 2.2 but guess what, this phone won't be supporting it. This phone is terrible, tech support is terrible, customer service is terrible. Once your 30 days are up and they have your rear end in a sling all the nicey nicey sales reps go by by. If you have to have spring go with the Evo or the Epic, if it will cost you $100 more, DO IT! You won't regret it in the end. For those of you with the intercept I recommend going here: http://community.sprint.com/baw/message/224248;jsessionid=C1E87A30D06902920A0EC2861294F33F.app2jive1 and demanding this phone be recalled or at least offer us an upgrade.
Pros introduced as a nice entry level android----that I like
voice to text :)
Cons touch screen has a huge delay-----glitchy big time
won't connect to internet without power cycling the phone 2 to 3 times a day
won't open messaging until you hit the icon 4 or 5 times
camera doesn't have a flash
too many errors
Summary not a phone first....too many gadgets that don't work right.
Pros solid feel
Cons internet doesn't work sometimes, phone freezes when dialing a phone #, contacts cannot be sorted by last name, short battery life
Summary I am home with full bars of data signal, yet, the internet won't work on the phone today. Another day, the phone was stuck on dialing a phone #. I kept trying to end the call but it wouldn't let me. It wouldn't let me dial another #, because it said it was still dialing the previous #. I had to take out the battery and put it back in to get it to work. Samsung just doesn't seem to know how to make phones.
Pros Nice size and keyboard
Cons Laggy, Buggy, Drops Calls, Gets slower and slower every day you use it. And the worse part is Sprint just says, "Wait for 2.2." Yeah, like that is really going to help.
Summary Had this product for 3.5 weeks and while it ran fine at the store and worked decently for a few days, after that it was hell. It would drop calls frequently and it would take up to 10 seconds for the phone app to start. If a PHONE takes that long to work as a PHONE, then there is something wrong. When I took it to Sprint, they told me that everything would be better when the Froyo update hit. My sister-in-law, brother-in-law and a couple of cousins had the same problems with their Intercepts. I didn't want to take the chance, so I traded it for a Hero. I am much happier. After a week, the Hero is still working great. I am rather surprised that CNET gave it such high marks, I think they would have seen many of the flaws after using it for an extended amount of time.
Pros Unfortunately my experience with this phone was horrible.
Cons Very sluggish, touch screen does is not responsive, drops calls - especially while call waiting, data stops working, cannot toggle when keyboard is open. Overall very slow.
Summary THIS IS A TERRIBLE PHONE AND SPRINT WILL NOT ADMIT ANY PROBLEMS WITH THE DEVICE. IF YOU HAVE IT I RECOMMEND RETURNING IT WITHIN THE 30 DAY WARRANTY PERIOD! I am on my third Intercept and still having problems. Phone is very sluggish, drops calls especially when receiving call waiting then phone freezes for 30 seconds or more. Data stops working very frequently and phone has to be rebooted. Sprint denies any problems with the phone. The mistake I made was replacing it with another intercept in my 30 day warranty period. Silly me to think that maybe I got a bad phone, but the next one was bad too. When I went to the Sprint store with my second bad phone they admitted the phone had a software problem, but it was not something they could fix. They sent me a refurbished phone because I was past my 30 days (only by a few days). After receiving the third and now refurbished phone I began having the same issues, I took the third phone into the Sprint store and they did a hard reset and said that should fix the phone. The phone still has issues. The two main problems are dropping calls (especially when a call is coming in) and losing the data throughout the day at which point the phone has to be rebooted. Now the only options Sprint offers involves me spending more money for another phone and extending my contract for two years. I pleaded with Sprint for hours and hours over the phone and through e-mail to help me get the phone replaced. I was not asking for a free phone or for them to replace the phone at no costs. I simply wanted a credit for my phone and to be able to purchase a replacement phone at the contract renewal price. I used my husband's upgrade, so I only have one year left on my contract. They would only allow me to buy a downgraded phone (with no credit on the Intercept) or they said I could pay $105 to buy out my contract and then purchase a phone at the 2-year contract price. After over 10 years as a Sprint customer, I canceled my service. I have never had such a bad experience in my life. Do not buy this phone you will be sorry!
