Pros purple color, slender, wheel, weather, slider, camera and camcorder.
Cons keyboard, symbols, letters and numbers, time, date, month, year and low ringer.
Summary I gave 3 stars, this messenger 2 is only good. The keyboard is small, it'll work best for someone with small fingers. As you are texting your thumbs hit the top slider. Also you have to switch from texing letters to numbers to symbols. When the phone rings, it's not loud. Even when the volume is to the max the phone doesn't ring loud. The time, date, month and year is so small you'll probably need reading glasses to see. The wheel is nice and the weather gives a complete week outlook. I like the color, which is purple and it's a slider and slender. It has a nice weight to it. It doesn't feel like a toy phone like some of the other ones I saw. The camera takes nice pictures and the camcorder is ok.Forgot to mention the price which was too expensive for this phone. I paid $199.00 from cricket store. Should have done better research for cheaper price. Also don't have much to choose for ring tones, only offer 5. Hope this helps in making your decision to purchase samsung messenger 2.

Pros it has a keyborad for easyer texting
Cons the cricket web is junk
Summary the web dont let you look at websites or go to ones with games on them and play them
Pros slender, smaller than my last phone- I like that. Keyboard is nice, you can switch from alpha to numeric just by holding down the key for 1 sec. Screen is clear, sound is good. Rings are nice and loud.
Cons keyboard on front of phone is too small- the full kwerty pad is good, but the one on the front is hard to use. I have to use a pencil eraser to dial numbers. Also it's hard to read the time/day/date.
Summary This is a good all around phone. It's easy to use and has a nice feel to it. The battery life is good, will last for about two days even on busy days. (Although I've never tested it to see just how long it will last; I charge it each morning and at the most I've used 1/4 of the battery life from one day's use.) Had to get used to the screen colors, too - it has white characters on a black background which I didn't like. Helps if you turn down the intensity.
Pros nice weight, like the full keyboard, easy to use
Cons cricket wireless doesnt cover the phone unless you purchase their warrenty !! the phone worked great for 24 hours, now it turns off and on every time you touch the keyboard and erased my images and downloaded ringtones
Summary cricket wireless doesnt cover the phone unless you purchase their warrenty !! the phone worked great for 24 hours, now it turns off and on every time you touch the keyboard and erased my images and downloaded ringtones. i paid too much money for this phone to be acting this way and cricket customer service is horrible! i have been a customer with cricket for three years, but am seriously upset. the corporate store is closed on sundays so now i have to go another day without my phone!
Pros easy to carry
Cons the volume and the font
Summary the volume is not loud and the font can not be enlarged. i can not see the time without putting on reading glasses. my pic text do not all come in. i do not like this over rated phone.
